OMG!!!! I HAD THAT AS WELL!!!!!

I used to pretend it was like a huge AT-AT style transporter but from Battlestar Galactica!!!

I used to like to mix my franchises!! I had it for years down in the basement after I outgrew it but I think it finally bit the dust about ten years ago after being badly damaged in a clearout!

I'm probably dateing myself here, but... The Major Matt Mason toys I had as a kid. I can't tell you how many times my friends and I established bases in the alien planet of "Sandbox" with those things... I had most of the figures, and several buddies had the various tracked vehicles and lunar crawlers. That was the era of these large plexiglas hanging lamps, and we used several of those as the "pressure domes" our little guys lived in. They would see the various aliens approach the domes, and they would have to decide how to make contact...

Somehow, it always became a partnership, didn't it?

You might have had the most figures, but your buddies had all the vehicles and peripherals.

It was the same for me and my Star Wars stuff. I had many of the figures, but my friends had the X-wing and the Millenium Falcon. (Although I did have Darth Vader's TIE Fighter).

Yeah, that was a fun toy. Like you, I pretended it was an armored transport for my Star Wars figures, but I pretended it was a pre-cursor to the AT-AT. (Turns out later, that according to the Lucasfilm Archives, there was a big "wheeled" armored vehicle that served before AT-AT's....this was primarily mentioned in the Star Wars Role Playing Game from West End Games, but you do catch a glimpse of one during the Battle of Kashyyk in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith).

LEGO is awesome, have a box full of it in my attic, I drew TNG style uniforms on several lego folk and made a pretty swanky version of the Enterprise-D bridge ajoining most of the other major sets seen in the series.

Still the most fun with LEGO is in the making rather than the playing I always found.

My very favortie toy was my beloved Lost in Space robot!!! I loved that toy so much! I also had a pretty good collection of the old Matchbox cars, the kind that came in the little matchbox. My very favorite one was my John Deere tractor. I remember playing with those 2 particular toys for hours on end, but the robot was always my very favorite toy!

My brother had this big Dukes of Hazzard Car with a ramp. It was really heavy. Especially when my cousin hit my brother over the head with it on Christmas day
