    Star Wars Transformers

    Could've combined two of my greatest childhood passions...

    Star Wars Lego is a close second, but when I was younger and single I bought those for the fun of it, and now I still work on the Collector's Series as time/money/the wife allow...

    Hmm...I actually had that when I was a kid. :) I could sit and do that thing for hours. And then they came out with the BopIt Extreme - oh, my, the joy!

    Actually, I think i still have it somewhere...Hmm.

    Anyway, toys they didn't have when i was a kid that I'd like now...I can't honestly think of anything. I haven't paid much attention to what they've got now, and I liked what I had just fine, thank you very much.

    It was the old castle sets that were in when I was younger.

    The good news is now that we're older and a bit more financially settled than when we were 10 or so, we can actually afford them now. I remember mowing lawns for two months when I was 12 to save up enough for a green-screen Game Boy.

    http://factory.lego.com/ - designing your own lego! I always wanted to just have a big supply of different bricks so I could build whatever I wanted. I very rarely assembled the intended designs for long.

    I've actually got the first version of that still, unfortunately it works on (an old version of) windows only.
