    Of the ones listed, it's definitely the Mego line.

    Yep, I had a handful of those Megos as well.

    The stuff I collected afterwards blows those things out the water. I was big into Dragon/bbi/Hot Toys for a few minutes in their glory years.

    I was also in art-toys like KAWS, Michael Lau, Kozik yadda-yadda-yadda. Around the time Murakami got involved in the game I dropped out of the hobby. There is a point when you realize that's it, I'm out.

    Of those in the list, I had a lot of Megos and Super Powers figures. My favorite toy line though is still the Micronauts.

    It used to be Marvel Legends from Hasbro, but now it's either Hot Toys or Figma.

    From the toy series that are included on the link I was a huge fan of Masters Of The Universe. For a period there in my childhood it overtook both Star Wars and super-heroes in my affections. The cartoon was essential viewing for me. Every Monday at 4.20pm I was glued to the telly circa mid 80's. I also collected both the DC Super Powers range and M.U.S.C.L.E. That last one was quite odd really. Those little pink wrestlers really didn't do anything but were hugely desirable.

    I have to also include the Transformers toys from the 1980's. Over here in the UK the Transformers comic was sensational. It combined both US reprints and original UK stories that tied into them and, I must say, was superior to the US comic (it's not often that I'll express a preference for UK comics over the US ones). Favourite Transformer? Galvatron. I collected quite a few of the Marvel Secret Wars figures from that period also. Good times.

    I have a ton of action figures of DC characters, so I guess it is Kenner.

    Bland, cheap & uninspired paint job. Poses are not dynamic or interesting. The bases need a lot of help. On the other hand, they make fine cake-toppers for a toddler's birthday cake.

    I suppose their OK for McDonald happy meals but not for a grown up to display. I would not be upset if my dog chewed their heads off.
