Default Griswold/Rinkwraith Contest Entries #4 and #5



You know, Clark wonders why the heck we don't have Christmas Vacation action figures yet, but got to thinking about some of the cool old playsets and figures from years past. In fact, Clark and I read an article describing the 10 coolest playsets from the 1980s which highlighted;

10) Ewok village - Star wars
9) A-team Command Center
8) Snake Mountain - Masters of the Universe
7) Boulder Hill - M.A.S.K.
6) The Hyve - Sectaurs
5) Castle Grayskull - Masters of the Universe
4) Millenium Falcon - Star Wars
3) Defiant Space Shuttle - GI Joe
2) Eternia - Masters of the Universe
1) U.S.S. Flagg - GI Joe

Fun memories, in fact I can distinctly remember getting two of those playsets for Christmas in two different years.

1) Guess which two playsets I have received for Christmas as a kid. (Limit 2 guesses per person)

2) Which action figure or playset do you remember receiving for Christmas?

2 winners here; first one to successfully guess my playsets, and then a random drawing from all entries for question #2. Deadline will be Thursday December 15 at 8pm EST. Winners will then be added to the master list for the randoming of prizes. Good Luck!!!

1. I think you were a He-Man kid, so I'll go with Snake Mountain and Eternia (that thing was awesome!)
2. I got the Ewok Village and the Deathstar playsets as a kid, and I loved those sets so much. My favorite figures had to be my Transformers though.

I will say you got Boulder Hill and the USS Flag.

For me it was the Ewok Village! Awesomest thing I ever received....next to my very first tv...a 12" black and white! Played my Atari day and night on it!!!

1) I'm going to guess the two that I got: Castle Greyskull and Ewok Village.
And guess #2: The Hyve and Boulder Hill.

2) I remember every year my Grandmom would get me and my cousin the same thing, but I don't think she realized the difference and I always got the "deluxe" versions, and my cousin would get all bent out of shape. Needless to say we always played Scrabble on my board.

I will say these two:
4) Millenium Falcon - Star Wars
2) Eternia - Masters of the Universe

Also, I LOVED action figures as a kid. I had so many they were all over the room.
The best gift i remember was when my mom offered me an action figure if i could stop biting my nails for 1 month(and try to keep it going). I did it, and got an AWESOME ninja turtle of Raphael (my fave).

These are my two guesses:

Snake Mountain - Masters of the Universe
A-team Command Center

I was a Hot-Wheels kid myself. I always begged for the biggest playset and would always set it up outside and it would always get ruined. Why did I never learn?

Well, both have been guessed so far but not in the right combo. Hint #1 - they are not of the same genre.

MrSnyder (who guessed one correctly) I bet wishes he kept all of those MOC......

Millenium Falcon - Star Wars
U.S.S. Flagg - GI Joe

hope it was ok to edit my guess. just read your tip

The one I remember is my Mighty Max playset. Anyone remember him??
I also had He-man figures but no playset. I did have the ninja turtles sewer and the Ghostbusters Ecto 1 and firehouse. Man...I guess I was a nerd. But awesome stuff though.

my big thing as a kid was two, GI Joe and Transformers, I honestly can't really remember much about specifics but I loved those things. Oh and this pretty sweet batcave I had too, Batman is the shiz

All righty then...nobody guessed my two playsets which were Castle Grayskull and the USS Flagg (geez, if I had only just kept that in the box in a storage place somewhere)....so there is only one thing left to do....award two winners via random.....
