Millean..i agree! VOLTRON was a BadA$$ toy! But you have to specify which version.. So i thought the big plastic version was dumb. The Metal voltron was the best. They did a re-release in 1997. You can find it on ebay or www.bigbadtoystore.com  I think its going for around $75-$100 right now..i could be wrong.

 Soundwave was one of my favorites growing up! I remember drooling over it as my mom bought it at Service Merchandise.

I got that Godzilla and the Death Star for Christmas. The one thing cooler that Getting Godzilla for Christmas was also getting a building for him to attack. I also got another monster that was in scale with Godzilla that year. Terron he was like a six legged triceratops... Best Christmas ever...

Ahhh service merchandise! I remember them and loved them almost as much as Childrens Palace!! That place had an awesome toy section!!

Darkknight, of course I had the ultra cool, all-metal bodies version of Voltron.  I bought the lions in three separate boxes, so unfortunately I never had the blazing sword.  I still have him in a box of toys in the top of my closet -- he's missing enough pieces that I never decided to set him up on display.

I actually thought about getting one of those re-release versions of Voltron (may have to do some eBaying after this post).  I decided not to because I have just enough Batman merchandise scattered throught my house that I didn't want to risk scaring off every female unfortunate enough to take a tour of my house.

Sigh, there's such a fine line between "over-grown" kid and "creepy guy"...

 Rheul, Me too! Godzilla loved pounding the "defense screens" made of paper with his launch hand! I had the Steve Austin, Goldman and Mandroid, so cool! 

I have to add the Micronauts though, the battle cruiser became an armada of which I also attacked the deathstar and Godzilla as a third force of destruction, with Acroyear, Time Traveller and Baron Karza leading the way, until Godzilla ate Karza's horse half and the fleet, or what was left of them, was driven off.

Stretch Armstrong was cool, until the weird liquid goop came ouf of his head and got all over you.

Gotta go, its time for chemo...

I loved Soundwave.  He came with Buzzsaw.  Too bad his Autobot counterpart Blaster didn't come with a tape.  Hi tape deck was harder to open.  You had to get Blaster's tapes separately.  They were worth buying though as well as Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, and Ratbat (Laserbeak was interchangeable with Buzzsaw though he got more screen time on the cartoon series.)

I wish I had gotten Zartan because he could change color and he came with a vehicle.  Same goes with Darth Vader with a removable helmet.  It probably would have been difficult to keep all of Modulock's pieces together and risk losing them. 

I would have put Optimus Prime as this list.  I also liked the Combaticons and the Technobots.

I liked Soundwave, but I think one of the TF Masterpiece figures should be on here instead.  Possibly Prime or Starscream, both are AWESOME!!

And that Alien figure is cool, but there was a series released back in the 90's that had an Alien Queen.  That was bad-ass!

Great list, and I love the fact Godzilla got the number 1 spot!  One thing seems to be missing though...the Empire Strkes Back AT-AT!  I remember that toy was coveted by so many kids in my neighborhood.  I never had one, but my best friend/next door neighbor did, and it was AWESOME!  I had the equally fantastic, yet hugely out of proportion Snow Speeder, so we had lots of fun together.

I'd somehow add the AT-AT, Voltron, and Optimus Prime if I could.  Three toy icons!

 My favorite thing about the Jabba the Hutt figure was Salacious B. Crumb. He's also the only part of my Star Wars collection that survived my adolescence. He proudly rode along everywhere I went in my first three cars, either glued to the dash or hanging from the mirror.
