One of my earliest childhood memories revolve around hanging out in Italian toy stores. Because the toy store closed an hour later during the Italian lunch hour (from I believe noon till 4 PM) my parents would always let me go there when we went to town.
The “it” toy for years was Masters of The Universe (“MOTU”) with He Man, Skeletor, Hordak and so on. It started as an action figure by Mattel and then came the comic, the cartoon, the movie, real movie followed by several returns of different animated features.
My grandmother gave my toys away a few decades away and now.. at 32.. I got to relive my childhood. Just like Michael Jackson but without touching little boys.
I got this big collection of MOTU action figures on the Internet. I am still missing a few but I had a few of these as a child.
Unpacking these, one at a time, was probably one of the nicest trips down the memory line.
Merry Christmas everyone!
