Heck I'm still collecting action figures now, the Marvel Legends and DC Direct stuff and I'm always on the lookout for original Star Wars figures, I had cars when I was younger, I've still got my Scalextric set and the majority of my Lego but things like that didn't interest me as much as the figures did, to the extent that when I did get Star Wars figures when I was younger I never got any vehicles for them as I didn't think they were of any use.

All of my friends were girls growing up.  So I played hopscotch, jumprope, cat's cradle. 

So, were you a little player back then, just friends, or were girls still "icky" and you had to wash your hands after playing wtih them for long periods of time?   Smile

but then again I had literally a thousand green army men. .

Oh, oh, forgot about those!  Loved Army as well!  The "real" dark green and tan ones, not the various knock version which broke too easily.  Mom didn't trust me with firecrackers, so, unlike most boys, I didn't blow mine up...

My brother had the train set. We use to set up the village with all the scale housing and back then there was this stuff called green slime in a can and I would have the town attacked by green slime just like in the film THE BLOB. The train station blob attack was my favorite with all the very tiny figures waiting for the train. If they only knew the blob was nearby.

HAHA!!  If I had had a train set, I'd probably would ahve been putting walls or other figures and letting the train crash into it!  Hehe.

We also played cops and robbers on our bikes, with six to eight chasing the one or two robbers.  You do not know all the places that a dirt bike can go until you are about ten or eleven.

I look back on childhood fondly.

Wow.. that must have been nice to have a lot those... uh... what you call them?  Uh.. "things" to play with... you know, other people who hang out with. 

For various reasons, most of my childhood was pretty solitary.

Hell, things haven't really changed that much in that respect, but that's another thread...

There was some doctor play to be sure, but it was all innocent curiosity.  Things haven't much changed.  All but one of my friends are female.  And believe it or not, all this feminine exposure has actually doomed my sex life.  I am forever fated to be the shoulder to cry on.  Damn my listening skills!  Bluesad  I feel like Orpheus sometimes.  (Because he visited Hades while he was alive, he could never properly die.)  Because I've been to "insider" hair/makeup/fondue parties, I can never be in a romantic relationship.  *sigh*  Haha.

I was into both as a kid. I loved Hot Wheels cars and loved to play smash-up derby with them. I even had those that showed damage when you crashed them together. Also loved those little cars that you ran on a track with a remote control. Still I'd have to say overall I preferred action figures, especially G.I. Joe and LJN wrestling figures. I had most of the A-Team figures too and numerous DC Super Powers figures. I could easily be swayed if I had more money to get back into collecting action figures as they seem far more detailed and impressive nowadays (although it's undeniably a nostalgia thing as the figures that most attract my attention are based on old classic movies or old-time wrestling from the 60s through to the 80s).

I was both an action figure and model boy. Never really the "go outside and break my fragile joints" kid, as you could probably infer here Wink.

I cannot count the number of times we hurt each other.  Another of our favorite activities was having dirt clod wars.  Once, we had a game that involved throwing old pieces of siding at each other.  They were a couple of feet long and flew like javelins.  I still have a small scar in my eyebrow from that.

We'll not even get into throwing walnuts at each other, with only garbage can lids as shields.

I was the kind of boy who was born female.    TeddyR

Trust me, that's the best kind of boy!

This is absolutely the truth, I've been married to a "tomboy" for 36 years and in my opinion they make great wives, at least Poogie has been for me.

Dirt clod wars rock.  In fact, they should be used to settle all minor legal disputes.  Want to sue someone because they ran over your toe?  Clod War!  Winner gets the money!

At least you know the correct terminology........Mr. Snivelly once referred to me as "low maintenance", which immediately cost him an extended trip to the mall while I made a liar of him.

Dirt clods! Also,we would take green apples and sharpened sticks...and call them wicks. Put the small apple on the end of the stick...whooosh! Thos e suckers would fly...and hurt! Also have spear fights with the big reeds that grew near the swamp. The root ends were sharp and heavy with dirt...those hurt too.The migrant workers that lived up the road had a million kids...we used to have rock fights. REAL rock FIGHTS. This was serious sh!t to us little monsters!

  Missed your response here. 
Buying the paint by numbers set for color choices is true dedication to your project; I used to do stuff like that but forgot all about it.  Thumbup I did not have THE BRIDE either, and still don't!  Yes, I went back and collected many of the old monster models and the boxes (which I now recognize I'm more fond of, like any true collector.)   Time goes so quickly that all of those models are now packed away and the boxes stacked in the closet . . . back in the early 70s, I also had many Aurora snap together kits, and now still can't believe my Mom bought me the Prehistoric Cave store display . . . with the cardboard volcano!  Man, kids are stupid!  I let that disappear after only a little while, tossed out and unappreciated as the ephemeral treasure it was!  I had the cave for years, but it too, is now decades gone.  Bela, I applaud you yet again, and you too, BTM, for a good thread! 

PS.  I had most of the Aurora Monster Scenes, including the character VAMPIRELLA which is best described as Wow, and I have re-collected several of them unopened.  Now have two packed away from "DARK SHADOWS" MPC BARNABAS COLLINS builtups, plus a builtup WEREWOLF w/box and an unbuilt Barnabas in box, unbuilt Vampire Van, too.
