I was going to post pretty much this exact same thing.

@Dracula: thanks for putting on an amazing list. I was too late in submitting but I thoroughly enjoyed tagging along. And thanks to everyone for the delightful trip down memory lane. I'd forgotten a lot.

EPILOGUE

Since Operation Grayskull Rescue...






















And with that, I'll tie a little bow on my curation of this thread. I'd like to thank everyone for playing along during this experiment - if you had even a tiny bit of fun or felt a nostalgic tug on your heartstrings, then I accomplished my goal. And I will also be sitting down and playing some Famicom (as soon as I restore order to my toy/game room, since this list did result in some, ah, chaos in there).

Also, here is my own list, for those curious. Bolded did not make it.

1. Transformers G1 (Trypticon)
2. Masters of the Universe (Classics Fisto)
3. Transformers Generations (TR Trypticon) (This is the primary thing I collect nowadays. The last four years have produced IMO the best figures in the line.)
4. Microman (Spy Magician)
5. Gobots (Zod)
6. Diaclone (Diabattles V2) (One of the predecessors to Transformers, but I'm really voting for the recent TakaraTomy revival line, which has produced some of the most fun and impressive toy mech designs I've ever seen. It's also ridiculously expensive though)
7. LEGO Pirates (Skull's Eye Schooner)
8. Zoids (Ultrasaurus)
9. Kenner Star Wars (Millennium Falcon, Greedo)
10. Gunpla (1/144 HGUC Guncannon)
11. Transformers Beast Wars (Claw Jaw) (This was the first successful attempt to revitalize TF after G1, and was controversial to fans at the time, but is now considered a sacred cow)
12. ReMent Pose Skeleton
13. GI Joe: A Real American Hero (Buzzer)
14. Monster in My Pocket (Haniver)
15. EXO Squad (Typhonus in High-Speed Stealth E-Frame) (This was a 1990s Playmates line that had an unusually serious and mature animated series, and a favorite of Kid Dracula)
16. Godzilla Toys (Sofubi Hedorah)
17. Xevoz (Skull Jack)
18. Chinasaurs (Rust Monster) (Check it out Loki, I voted for these too!)
19. Rock Lords (Terra-Roc)
20. Hot Wheels (Shark Cruiser)
21. The Real Ghostbusters (Fearsome Flush)
22. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Mutagen Man)
23. Transformers Masterpiece (Ratchet) (I only recently started collecting these, mostly due to the price. They've started to ramp up the articulation and expressiveness of the figures lately, which I love.)
24. Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (Deluxe Megazord) (Bamboozled that these didn't place, they were some of the most popular toys of the 1990s)
25. MUSCLE (Sunshine)

1. Battle Beasts
2. Imperial Godzilla 12in from 1985
3. Legos
4. OG TMNT
5. GI Joes
6. Masters of the Universe
7. Captain Power (Lord Dread)
8. Rock Lords (only Nuggit)
9. Willow Movie Tie-Ins - Unjustifiable pick; they aren't articulated at all and most can't even stand on their own. I had a bunch and played with them all the time.
10. Dino Riders
11. The Corps (Series 2 & 3)
12. Barnyard Commandos - These weirdos are kind of terrible, but I liked them.
13. MUSCLE
14. Big Weird MUSCLE knock-offs (I think, I couldn’t find them anywhere) - I should have looked around my Mom's at Christmas to see if these were still laying around, so I could get pictures.
15. Hot Wheels

I had a hard time picking a favorite Turtles toy. I blame my memory. Also, I'm surprised noboby had the Turtle blimp as their favorite.

I had forgotten about some of the neat little details these toys had - like the tiny squashed turtle on Baxter's weapon.

A cut of that much moola will definitely help you attract an incredibly tall model.

Here are my hits:
1. imagination
2. Transformers G1 (Powermaster Optimus Prime)
4. LEGO
5. M.U.S.C.L.E.
6. GI Joe 3.75" (Cobra Rattler)
8. Star Wars (speeder bike)
9. TMNT
12. Rubik's Snake
13. Slinky (classic circular metal version)
15. Battle Beasts
17. Captain Power Phantom Striker
21. Play-Doh
23. Silly Putty
24. GoBots Command Center

And misses:
3. Yes & Know (Maybe not actually a toy but I don't care and neither did Drac.)
7. View-Master
10. Starriors (Vultor) [or maybe it was Windstorm]
11. Matchbox Roadblasters
14. Tomy Pocket Games
16. Tomy Hit and Missile
18. Magnetic Doodle Balls
19. Lite-Brite
Check out this sweet Lite-Brite art (not mine):


20. Aura BattLer Dunbine figure
22. dollar store light up plastic ninja sword
25. Entertech E9115 AK Centerfire

"The look! The feel! The sound, so too real!"

And some other things that I re-discovered on my trip down memory lane which didn't make my final list:
  • Fisher-Price movie viewer
  • Tomy Waterful RIng-Toss
  • The Orb
  • "magic grow capsules"
  • Micro Adventure (Yes, not actually a toy but whatever.)

And some other random stuff I found along the way:

Mr Mouth looks high AF.


Poor guy looks like he's about to lose his shit.


Cool looking laser gun toy which I'm not sure if I owned or not. Does anyone know where it's from?

Also, thanks to Drac for ruining things for everyone else who wants to run a Top 50 a great job. It was really entertaining.

I also had one (and a couple of other laser guns besides, with varied lights/noises), but couldn't tell you what it's from.

Drac, this list was a hell of a lot of fun. Thanks for putting in the work!

My list:

25. Marauder Task Force | Fav: Valkyrie
24. Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. | Fav: Skeleton
23. Maple Town Story [Sylvanian Families] | Fav: Living Room playset
22. The Incredible Crash Dummies | Fav: Bumper and Hubcat
21. Starting Lineup (Baseball) | Fav: 1998 Larry Walker (Extended Series)
20. Voltron | Fav: Pidge
19. Pound Puppies | Fav: How could I love one Pound Puppy over another???!?
18. Indiana Jones (2008) | Fav: Short Round / Mola Ram / Dr. Henry Jones Sr. (three-way tie)
17. Revoltech Takeya | Fav: Fudo-Myōō
16. Food Fighters | Fav: Lieutenant Legg
15. Madballs | Fav: Screamin' Meemie
14. GoBots | Fav: Scooter
13. Masters of the Universe | Fav: Buzz-Off
12. Mighty Max | Fav: Mighty Max Outwits Cyclops
11. The Real Ghostbusters | Fav: Ghostbusters Firehouse
10. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles | Fav: Leonardo's Sewer Force Sword
9. McDonald's Changeables | Fav: Macro Mac
8. Creepy Crawlers | Fav: Mini Dragons
7. The CORPS! | Fav: Avalanche / Large Sarge (tie)
6. Star Wars (Vintage Kenner) | Fav: Yoda
5. G.I. Joe: The Pursuit of Cobra / 30th Anniversary (since 30th is the logical extension of PoC; if not, just PoC) | Fav: Alley-Viper
4. Star Wars (The Vintage Collection) | Fav: Luke Skywalker (Lightsaber Construction)
3. Monster in My Pocket | Fav: Great Beast
2. G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero | Fav: Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Guile

Feel like mine was pretty well-represented if not in the list then in one of the weekend write-ups. The most personally significant not to place is probably the recent... I mean, DECADE OLD, shit, Indiana Jones line for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Long overdue and mostly super-articulated, the line also awakened the dormant SW and Joe collector in me.

I don't think these belong to any particular toyline, but I am reasonably sure they were produced by Satan or at least one of his henchmen. No decent human would design a toy with noises so ear-splitting.

There was one that had been floating around in Bride of Dracula's household since her childhood, and it was so hated that they would randomly hide it in people's Christmas presents each year just to get reactions out of them.

Yes! I have both of these (as well as a more neutral-stance version). I'm not sure why Sunshine was my favorite, since I didn't know anything about the character. I suppose it's just how much personality the figures have.

He reminds my of Gold Raitan, a robot that transformed from a cigarette lighter. Which, given this is MUSCLE, he might be a parody of, who knows.

Drac, that epilogue is fantastic. Is that a mini-Zaku with fly-off armor standing at the side of the TWCBOC? I totally have that dude.

YUP! I ended up selling off most of my SDGF figures, but I kept the main good guys and my Zakos, and a few others. The Zakos are just so great.

I echo Koli's sentiments you and Jbear have ensured that every tyrant is going to be sorely disappointed with my Top 50.

If only I could have convinced my mom to revisit this whole thing...

Thank you again!

I was way into TMNT and had a bunch of the toys, but I gotta say, once my interest in the cartoon waned, those toys went into a box and never came out because they kinda sucked. The weapons were obviously garbage but even the figures weren't that great, and what was the deal with the turtles' mouths being open on one side or the other? So weird.

My list:
1. Lego
2. Transformers
3. Gund "Snuffles" Bear
4. Clay (NOT play-doh)
5. Starcom
6. Battle Beasts
7. Star Wars
8. Glue Dinosaurs
9. Silly Putty
10. Paper Airplanes

I was sadly unable to find any evidence for the existence of glue dinosaurs, so I'm not sure if they were created by some local mad scientist or what. They were made out of that gummy material of things like sticky hands or whatever's inside of squishy balls. But in the most awesome possible shape: dinosaur.

Speaking of awesome: This thread! Thanks!

This has been quite possibly the most engaging top-50 yet, and I wish I could have had the mental courage needed to whittle a list down to twenty five entries.

TMNT: I never owned any TMNT action figures or their bigger playsets, but I remember most of the commercials. I was definitely marketed to and maybe even wanted some of those toys. Despite not being a big fan of action figures, I wanted the pizza shooter thing.

My list:
1. Lego Architecture - already shared my thoughts with the lego generic item
2. Lego Pirates
3. Hotwheels
4. Wooden train set - I think everyone had these and they are fun to play with even with a younger family member. I tried to get into "real" train sets, but to be really fun, it takes up a fair bit of space and money.
5. Crayons - pretty much covered by imagination
6. Pinewood Derby cars - being a scout, I did one every year. I typically never won a race. But at the end, the cars would be on display and the coolest looking cars would get ribbons for design. I won a ribbon almost every year. An early sign I should be a designer and not an engineer...
7. Bouncy Balls
8. Nerf Ball
9. Yoyo
10. Slinky
11. Pogs - I liked the slammers for their weight. I liked some of the cardboard discs that had reflective or sparkly bits. Like many 90s fads, my interest faded.
12. Tamagotchi - maybe a bit less of a pure toy, but my siblings and I worked to devise some way to get one of the digital pets to stay alive during the school day when they were not allowed at school. I took it anyways and got it taken by the teacher. I thought she said I could have it after class, but she said after school. At the end of class, I took it off the teacher's desk. got in trouble.
13. Playdoh
14. Slot Cars
15. John Deere Tractor - I lived in a rural farming community. we had a good collection of tractors and farm stuff.
16. Fisher Price red car - it stayed at my grandma's house and lots of grandkids played with it. by virtue of being the only toy, it got played with far beyond the typical age range.
17. Walkman - again, not really a "toy", but I'd play tapes on my walkman a fair bit to give my various adventures a soundtrack.
18. Beany Babies
19. Snow
20. American Girl dolls - a vote in honor of a very treasured doll of my wife and of my sister. My niece got her own this year. When my sister got hers, it got her interested in colonial times and generally seemed to be high quality.

Closing thoughts:
Huge thank you to Drac for such an entertaining thread and for spurring engaging conversations. This has pretty much been my go-to thread on this board for the last couple months.

One more thing!

Back at the beginning of the thread, I challenged everyone to identify everything in the throne room of Grayskull. Y'all pretty much got all of it, but here are the answers, in case you were wondering!



1 - Space Suit Thing, Masters of the Universe Classics (Part of Grayskull; this guy was a piece of cardboard in the vintage playset)
2 - Castle Grayskullman's Swords, Masters of the Universe Classics
3 - Big Mac guy, McDonald's Changeables
4 - Question Block, Mario, S.H. Figuarts
5 - Key, Castle Grayskull, Masters of the Universe (2002; you could use this to activate the castle's features if you didn't own any figures)
6 - Staff, Evil Sorceror Kelek, LJN Advanced Dungeons & Dragons
7 - Finger Monster, unknown series/manufacturer
8 - Power Sword, Masters of the Universe (2002)
9 - Crown, Starscream, Transformers: Cybertron
10 - Junction piece, Tinker Toy
11 - Holy Grail Chalice, 2008 Indiana Jones figures
12 - Clear Mode M161 Command Sheriff, Microman, 2002 reissue
13 - M182 Lady Command Annie, Microman, 2002 reissue
14 - Pilot figure, Zoids
15 - Space Glider "Dash Wing," Micronauts
16 - Laptop, Tunnel Rat, G.I. Joe 30th Anniversary
17 - Rifle, Topspin, Transformers G1
18 - Engine block, Cy-Kill, GoBots
19 - Dejarik Table, Millennium Falcon, Kenner Star Wars

(I kept all this stuff in one bag in case I wanted to shoot another scene in Grayskull's throne room, but just ended up not doing that)

One last item, I vastly prefer Filmation's take on Snake Mountain over the playset. I think Mattel dropped the ball on that.

I also want to thank you, Dracula, for an awesome job at this list: a fun story, highly nostalgic and informative, it truly had it all!

Thanks a lot!

Also, it made me watch The Toys That Made Us on Netflix and I enjoyed that a whole lot too (probably even more thanks to this thread, so that's a neat enjoyment feedback loop! ), so thanks for that as well!

As a minor anecdote, I find it funny that you people like Sunshine from the MUSCLE line, since Kinnikuman was broadcast in Catalan back when we were little kids, and it was quite successful at that, and one particular scene is kind of a meme/running gag among some of my friends for some reason (the uploader is precisely one of them), in which Sunshine has a central role:
Ashuraman (or The Hunter, as his name was translated to in Catalan ???) and Sunshine defeat Specialman (?) and Canadianman (whose super power is... being Canadian? XD )


EDIT:
Oh, and there's also this one, which matches one of those figures:
