Do you still get that magical feeling when you think about your childhood toys? Do you listen to 80's music and feel the urge to dance? Do you miss your weekly dose of cartoons on Saturday?

Collecting vintage toys is an addiction. Whenever I have hunted down another gem for my mancave, I’m already thinking about my next “project”. It just never stops. 
And, to be honest, I would'n want it any other way!

Today I will show you four of my holy grails. I need these toys before I grow old and fat/bald (both sound horrible if you ask me, I’m scared now).

1. Skeletor
Of course I have a loose replica of the Ultimate Lord of Evil, but I need a carded one. This bad boy is on top of my wishlist, but whenever a nice example pops up, it costs an arm and a leg and an extra mortgage. 
Some day…
2. Donatello
Some time ago I decided I want to have all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on an unpunched 10-back card. So far I have Michaelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo. Donatello would complete my fab four bodacious friends and I can’t wait to shell out (pun intended) the (pizza) dough and reunite him and his bros!
3. Star Wars Dewback
My loose vintage Star Wars action is almost complete and I’ve decided not to collect the vehicles. Because of space issues (pun intended)…
However, I’d love me some boxed creatures. I still don’t have a Dewback and I love the box itself, so I’ll probably end up spending my life savings on one of these gems one day. 
4. Ghostbusters Proton Pack
The only roleplaying toy I’d ever want. If it wasn’t for my allergies, I would’ve become a Ghostbuster too ya know…
To remind me of that childhood dream, I must have this toy. I will find it sooner or later, don’t you worry!
