A Handful Of… Toys I Always Wanted To Exist

As a kid, was a skid, and no one knew me by name.  Trashed my own house party ‘cuz nobody came.

Oops, I’m already off topic…

As a kid, there were a few toys that never existed that I always wish existed.  Shall we reminisce together?

1) BOBA FETT (WITH FIRING MISSILE)

Everybody had a friend that had one.

Call it a choking hazard, call it natural selection, these toys never made it market.  But I swear I knew a kid– ah, forget it.

2) GLORIA BAKER AND SHARK (FROM M.A.S.K.)

Thank T-Bob the fan-fic pic is clean.

I’m not sure why this toy was never made.  It’s not like Kenner hadn’t made other water vehicles, or other female action figures (Vanessa Warfield).

3) HOVER BOARD

Wasn't this supposed to be close to market fifteen years ago? How about in five from now?

After the time travelling DeLorean, of course, there was not much more I wanted from the Back to the Future films.

4) ROCKETEER’S ROCKET PACK AND HELMET

Scary. but fun...

…that, or his girlfriend…

Jenny, Jenny...

5) GREATEST AMERICAN HERO INSTRUCTION BOOK*

The only book that could be a toy...

*Costume better be included…

6) STAR TREK’S HOLODECK

Doesn't look like much fun now, but neither does a deflated balloon.

If I have to explain this one, I don’t care to know you.  Good day!

7) “THE TOY”

Sorry, I had to...
