1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    Hi. Do you still have your m.u.s.c.l.e. figures...and would you like to sell them? I need new hobbies and distractions.

    I probably had them all and hadn't thought of them since I was twelve or so. Geez man...

    Laugh all you want. I'm a m.u.s.c.l.e. man through and through. Would anybody else care to exchange little pink wrestling dudes?

    Out of context that statement makes me giggle.

    Bump for the most important, and universally applicable thread in this forum.

    Ok. While we're asking for classic toys, I'll put my self down as interested in a GI Joe USS Flagg (the huge aircraft carrier, the size of a pool table.) Yes, I'm aware they are usually listed on eBay at drastically inflated prices.

    My friends from the yard were into the G.I. Joes bigtime. I had already been through a Star Wars phase..so it didn't stick with me. Now the He Man stuff...we were in a steady competition over who owned the most. They won, with the Castle Greyskull they had.

    Toys are still cool.

    I also had some Masters of the Universe characters. I didn't have the Castle Greyskull either.

    I remember the figures being ridicolously expensive, think they were special imports straight from japan. But man were they cool...

    Probably the reason I didn't own any. (Same reason as the Flagg above.)

    I remember Transformers, WWF and NWA wrestling figures..Domino's Pizza..elaborate hamster cages. Ah, the 80's...

    Can't forget the Friday the 13th movies...oh, and 'Airplane!'. I actually met Leslie Nielsen once in 1987 in West Virginia.

    The noodle drawings...
