BG you're a God. I can't help myself except to respond to every single topic dedicated to early childhood memories, lol. I remember seeing fucking Bravestarr
on the shelfs in Reeds Drugstore. Good times.
I'll try to dig up some pictures later, but some other ones not on your list would be Silverhawks
, Chuck Norris and the Karate Kommandos
and my personal favorite, Rambo and the Force of Freedom
Anyone here who wasn't a kid in the 80's fails in life. What a fucking EPIC decade for children. Fucking Transformers
and G.I. Joe
, and fucking Karate Kid
with Mr. Miyagi and shit. No Retreat, No Surrender
! The Goonies
, The Outsiders
, and a fucking host of others. Goddamn how I wish I had those days back.
It's very hard to touch the 80's in terms of originality and innovation in both toys and cinema. So much came out of both industries. Pop culture in general.
Bravestarr was the shit! Way ahead of its time. I recently purchased a complete set of the cartoons from a boot legger....not the absolute best quality, but better than nothing.
There are so many a person could list....not only those you listed but M.U.S.C.L.E., Star Com, Tiger Sharks, Blackstar.....the list can just go on and on.
I hope several people respond and job my memory about something I may have forgotten.
That's a true testament to how great that time was, when you can actually forget a lot of the cool stuff that was around.
Just as I was typing that I thought of Battle Beasts! lol
See....it never ends!
