Hasbro WWF. I actually completed my loose collection as a 20 something adult, like a complete lunatic. The kid in me felt accomplished though :lol:

Believe it or not I got them as a kid when released. A mom and pop figure store had them all.

Wow what luck. I actually want that Ludvig Borga figure but sadly I deem that as too expensive an item to simply "have" and produces no added value when it comes to combos.

I'll list my favorite in no order:

GI Joe 1982-1994/ 2007-now
Masters of the Universe 1st era, New Adventures and 200X series. I can't say I'm a fan of the current MOTUC
Super Powers
Funko Pop Vinyl
WWE Jakks Classic Superstars

While I do not own any... I enjoy the Funko Pop Vinyl figures. Also, I enjoyed the LOST figurines that came out.

Really? You like the NA He-Man figures :haeeeh:

Why don't you like MOTUC? I think they are awesome. Only thing I hate about them is they cost a lot of money and I can't buy them.

I don't like their sculpts. I prefer the 2002 series way more than any other series. If we had the 2002 sculpts with the articulation of MOTUC, I'd be happy.

I like the NA only because it was so different. The cartoon was so much better than the toy line though. If you haven't watched it, give it a shot.

One underrated line was the Secret Wars figures of the 80s.

Great line in the longrun, the designs were as simple as you got, but the fact that all those characters were being released was pretty amazing. Helped establish Marvel's toys in general, like the Toy Biz line from the 90s, as using at that time, lesser popular characters.

Would've liked to have seen the rumored Hulk prototype, but it's never been confirmed. Plus, that mold would've broken the bank. Unless the repainted a He-Man figure green.

Growing up in the 80's we truly had some of the greatest toy lines, many of which I'm still a big fan of today. But, if I had to choose my all time favorite , it would have to be the Super Powers line. Hands down it's the most pure line of all time (1 Superman, 1 Batman etc), the power gimmicks were innovative and set the standard for toy lines to come like Thundercats and the Marvel Toy Biz line. Packaging and trade dress were explosive and that art by José Luis García-López just can't be beat.
