I cant even count how many times these guys and plain old GI Joe's were the result of many ass whoopin's growing up. We used to bomb them from upstairs, leave em on the stairs, put them in the HVAC vents, mix em in with laundry, put inside solid fuel rockets to see if they'd survive and parachute back, leave em in the fridge, leave em in the pool and get em stuck in the scimmer, and lord the hundreds of pounds of plastic body parts in the yard from explosion experiments and getting run over by the lawn mower.

GI Joe's, Lincoln Logs, Tonka Toys, and Ertl Tractors were my go-tos!!

Neighbor kid was playing with a toy doll and I said to him, "Hey Alex! Why are you playing with dolls?!?" He looks at me and says, "Mickey Merrie, this isn't a doll it's an ACTION FIGURE!!!"

Firecrackers and BB/pellet guns, my plastic Army men saw real combat growing up!
