Between my two brothers and I, we had about 28 of those things. I still have all of my Legos and most of the instructions, although there are some pieces that are missing. It would be cool to build every set that I had again.

This is still the coolest Christmas present ever. None of you young bucks has probably never seen one of these. Hours of fun running them into walls, jumping things, wheelies, etc.

Agreed! I remember sneaking a cookie sheet out of the kitchen and propping it up on books to make a ramp for ol Evel to jump from.

Equally as cool..... actually remember writing out Stomper SSC Supercycle Daredevil Loop set on my christmas list that year.....took a while to get all those letters down with a number 1 pencil.....

I didn't have that, but I did have one of these.

I'm sure mine is buried in my mom's basement somewhere. She is a pack rat and has quite a few boxes down there marked "toys". Maybe I need to get over there and have a look through them to see what cool things are still around!

E1, Unfortunately I do not have it anymore. In fact, I don't have any of the toys I had when I was a kid. I find myself looking for them fairly often though. Sucks, they're normally selling for an arm & a leg.

The one's I'd like to have back are Stretch Arm Strong & my Tamiya Blackfoot & Hornet R/C Cars.

Was I the only one with this set?

I can't believe that Dukes set existed and I DIDN'T have one....I think I had everything else associated with that show. If everyone else treated their Stretch Armstrong or Stretch Monster like I did, they either eventually got pulled apart or froze and split when left in the rear car window overnight during the winter....

Mine sat in the back window of my grandparents crown vic during a vacation to panama city. It turned to total goo & stained the carpet!

All my gi joes & cars got shot up with a Bb gun, or blown up with firecrackers. My blackfoot got ran over & the hornet drove into the pool. I played with my toys where no way in hell they'd survive this long.

only 2 or 3 things i don't remember. my sisters and i had a bunch of this stuff and still have most of it thanks to my hoarding parents. The castle in #25 and the carpet city in 44 were the bees knees back in the day, i probably had some of the best conversations with myself playing with those things. I actually played those exact brain quests (#43) with my sister during hurricane sandy when the power was out. All i have to say is some of those questions are ridiculous, i should go back to the 4th grade
