Mason's Top 10 Toys, IN SPACE!!!

Lately I have felt like my collection has gotten a bit out of hand and I was ready to throw in the towel completely and just sell everything! The problem with that is we all know I would just start collecting again and the cycle would repeat. So, Instead of selling out completely I decided to instead refocus my collection on my top 10 favorite toys and sell/trade the rest. 10 toy lines/categories still makes for a ton of toys, but it's a step in the right direction and it's better than collecting everything under the sun! I will adjust my monthly themes to the following toy lines.

I'm sure you will notice that there is a dominant sci-fi theme here, sprinkled with fantasy. Also, as a general rule I try to stick with vintage toys and avoid new retail stuff. If you see anything from my list and would like to trade/sell/give me anything from my list please let me know. (Images coming soon) Thanks!

1. LEGO Classic Space, Aquazone, and Miners.

Custom Space Skulls and my SigFig
LEGO was my first toy love. My earliest childhood toy memory is of my Dad, brother, and me building set 6987 Message-Intercept Base back in '88 when I was 5 years old. I later became a fan of LEGO Classic Castle, Classic Pirates, Aquanauts, and Wild West, but the Classic Space themes hold a special place in my heart. I collect any LEGO that I can customize into a space themed MOC.

2. Bendos by Kid Galaxy, Other World by Arco, Outter Terrestrial Creatures by Marty Toy, Outer Space Men by Colorforms (and the bootlegs), Major Matt Mason by Mattel, and other bendies.

3. The Sword and The Sorcerer, and Manimals by Fleetwood, and rubber monster toys by Imperial Toys

4. Fisher Price Adventure People (space theme only)

6. Bucky O'Hare by Hasbro, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Playmates (space themed figures only)

7.  Micro Machines Z-Bots by Galoob

8. Mighty Max by BlueBird Toys, War Planet by Trendmasters, and other micro play sets
