I think we used to have a topic like this but for the life of me unless it was just Nostalgia in general, I can't find it. Feel free to lock if so..

 

But the last couple of days have been very nostalgic and I always think back to my younger years and the things I enjoyed most.. here are some, share your stories or pictures if you'd like.

 

Me, personally, I was a huge TMNT fan, Thundercats and loved Alf. My childhood existed with those shows and toys as well as my love for other things like Hot Wheels, Micro Machines and Nerf Guns, not to mention Slip n Slides!

^ Still own it

Anyways, sorry for the onslaught of pictures, figured it would best explain the toys and things I cherished most. But seriously, I did pimp those TMNT undies for awhile.. so share some of your childhood things.. I'm curious to see trip's :p

My only childhood nostalgia would be to have teleport powers. Just sleep on the sofa and..*bam* end up in the bedroom. I also loved to watch TV without giving a damn about studies.

Captain Planet was the bomb. I used it watch it everyday after school.

So many memories as I grew up in the late 80s and all throughout the 90s.

I remember those days asking my parents if I could use the internet when they weren't using the phone.

I became a huge WWF fan in 95/96 and remember every notable moment from the attitude era.

Anyway I could go on and on as I look back at my childhood with great admiration. Such simpler times they were.

A few of mine:

- Legos

- Micro Machines (I had hundreds, plus a lot of those Hiways and Byways playsets or whatever they were called. I also had that van city, as well as a military one.)
$T2eC16R,!)cE9s4PtIH6BR4wy+F11g~~60_35.J

I still remember my first car sets were a police and a VW one

- Matchbox and Hot Wheels
- TMNT, Biker Mice from Mars, Pinky and the Brain, etc
- A Team, Knight Rider, Baywatch, Bud Spencer movies etc. (I loved Bud Spencer haha)
- Used to collect a lot of WWF stuff (before they were known as WWE)
- My SEGA console with games such as Sonic, WWF (I think there were TEN wrestlers!!!), something Ghosts etc.

i had castle grayskull, wont let me use the images. but Wow, actually seeing it again is pretty trippy.

i never got into micro machines but sh*tloads of hotwheels and matchbox cars. probably some rare ones. i had transformer toys that are worth money now. i had a few G.I. Joe's too the little ones with the bendy waists arms and legs.

 

that sega wrestling game was awesome (was it royal rumble?) it had tatanka, ultimate weapon and others.

 

i've still got an A-team figurine somwwhere (the funny one that had the costumes).

 

i remember watching the dukes of hazard and kightrider. i feel old all of a sudden.

My biggest one is riding around my old neighbourhood, going past the spots we used to play as kids, the funny things we used to do, specific items don't so much do it for me as the places. The places make you remember the people.

I couldn't sleep tonight so I went out with the bike, parked, and then went and rode around, reminiscing, causing some mischief, so it's funny you make this topic, how coincidental.

I can't remember what it was, might have been Royal Rumble, I don't know. I remember most of the wrestlers like Shaun Michaels, Bret Hart, Yokozuma, Golddust, Undertaker, Vader and some Clown dude. Don't know Tatanka or ultimate weapon though, so maybe my game was different

I played with nothing but Legos. My favorites were the Adventurers series and the Town series. I have a full storage container of bricks and baseplates in my closet still.

6 channels
No remote
All the TV stations signed off at night - so if you stayed up late you had to read a book or listen to the radio.

Lately I've been really nostalgic about the times when I used to watch WRC as a 7 to 10 year old kid. I always followed the moves of Markko Märtin who is also on my signature.


Lately I've been nostalgic about WRC seasons 2003-2005 when I was 7-10. I used to follow the driving of my country's greatest driver of all time, Markko Märtin who is also on my signature. It is taken on 2003 Argentina rally if I am not mistaken

You'd trust me with your life then. I still have them packed away somewhere. American, Russian, German, Japanese, Chinese armies with tanks, airplanes, barbwire fences, military bases etc. I loved army men toys as a kid.

Holy f*ck, that brings back some memories. I think this came free with my first PC, I didn't have the internet for a while so ended up doing nothing but making sh*tty movies and browsing Microsoft Encarta.

 

Most of my childhood was spent in a normal, antisocial, teenage manner. I learned how to get served at my local pub at 15. I Learned how to look like a complete dick in front of girls by falling off a motorbike at around 13. Before that, I guess almost being blown up by the IRA will always stand out to me. Good times.
