Lego's By Far :D I had a whole mini city ... but then i moved and it all got throw in box's and most likely did a few hundred 360's... I opened the box's... and Godzilla walked in :( haha
G.I. Joe, Johnny West, Major Matt Mason, and any of the dozens of toy guns were my beloved toys,(1960's). Also, I had a lot of Batman (Tv series) and Lost in Space toys. I also had a hand me down Johnny Seven hi tech Vietnam era automatic rifle/machine gun set from my older brothers that had a cool helmet with a built in walkie talkie inside. Sorry, I can't narrow down the list any further. Building a model and then using the high powered fireworks that were so much easier to get back then to blow them up was a crowdpleaser.
haha damn it! I totally forgot about GI joe! That is right up there with lego's. I had the super fortress of doom haha! It is really good to remember those old toys! I can't believe I totally forgot about GI joe! You know! I think... they are making either a live action GI joe Movie or a 3d one... been awhile since I have heard anything.
I would say Lego as well. I had endless fun creating my own space stations and stuff with every bit of lego I had (and there was a lot). I moved a lot as a child so I had to do it a few times, but that was cool because you always came out with something different.
