 I had a Green Machine. It was the replacement for my Big Wheel, as the wheels on said Big Wheel wore out. Ah, the memories...Also had a lot of Star Wars action figures. I think I set them on fire at some point. It was a rough couple of years.

 even though the super soaker was fun, I would have at least mentioned Castle Greyskull or Snake Mountain from He-Man.  Or the MASK gas station fortress....that thing was cool.  Gas pumps and sign turn into lasers PEW PEW PEW!

Bob...How can a list which includes 1970s toys NOT include the G.I. Joe with the "realistic" hair and Kung-fu grip?

A couple memorable toys I recall...

STRANGE CHANGE MACHINE - A lawyer's dream come true. Imagine a toy which heats plastic cubes to insane, guaranteed-burn time temperatures. Amazing. The cool thing was that you would drop a cube into the heating chamber - which looked like the teleportation chambers in THE FLY, and which got so hot you could SMELL THE HEAT - and the cubes would unfold into a monster, dinosaur, giant bug, etc. You took the mini-figure out of the heat, let it cool, and you could play with it. Then, when you had enough of that, you fired up the heat again, dropped the figure in, and when it got droopy you put it in something like a car-crusher and smashed it back into a cube. So so so cool. And so dangerous.

BILLY BLASTOFF - A kid in a space suit. Had a backpack, kind of like scuba tanks. The backpack contained batteries and that enabled the BILLY figure to power all kinds of vehicles and accessories... ray guns, "tv sets", moon walkers, a flying saucer that cruised around the floor and changed directions when it hit anything... more.

CAPTAIN ACTION SILVER STREAK "CAR" - Captain Action was fun (could be disguised as a variety of superheroes), and his amphibious car was way cool..about two feet long, it was equipped with spring loaded rocket launchers that could fire rockets all the way across the house... the kind of no kiddin' rocket launcher that again, would be a lawyer's dream today. Ah, good times.

And haven't even gotten to the Zeroids, the Ding-a-Lings, King Zor or Big Lou.... ;-)
