    Question '80s toyline your regret not collecting

    I don't have a lot of regrets in collecting, though I do miss some things I impulsively sold, like MOTU. But there are some favorites I wish I had collected, that seem really appealing to me now. My top 3:

    * Crystar. I liked these as a kid but never bought any.

    *Indiana Jones. So well-made.

    * Dungeons and Dragons. But I wanted the cartoon characters, too.


    What did you miss collecting?

    Super Powers. I got the first two waves, but then my interest waned as I had the major "Superfriends" characters. I wish I had stuck with the line, because the later figures are pretty tough to find, and I'll probably never complete my collection.

    Black Hole. I had VinCENT and a Sentry, but that's it. I really love anything Black Hole, and don't understand why I didn't gobble these up more.

    Original Transformers.

    Used to buy one a week for my nephew a few years straight.

    At the prices they're going for now I wish I bought 2 of each and stashed one away.

    PS, never seen the show and have no interest in it

    True, but I do have to admit ... them toys were pretty neat - only thing they were pretty dang expensive even new at the time.

    I wish I hadn't ignored all of the cool He-Man like knock-offs that were everywhere.

    I regret not getting deep into Star Wars toys. I'm like the only toy guy my age who wasn't.

    I kind of wish I actively collected M.A.S.K. nowadays. I should have jumped on it 20 years ago before the prices got nuts. I still have all my childhood toys, but some are pretty worn.

    Same for Super Powers. I've upgraded a few from my childhood, VERY worn versions, but nowadays even lose figures are priced insanely. Also wish I'd dropped a couple of hundred on a Cyborg back when he didn't cost a grand.

    I collected some Warlord, they were really good for knock-offs.

    I had no idea Super Powers had appreciated so much. I have a complete minty loose collection.

    I'd go back and collect Crystar, but even they are pricey.
