Masters of the Universe was another toy line that caught my eye during this time. It's bright colors and simple themes reminded me of a simplier time (pretty amazing considering I was 12 at the time). Castle Greyskull is also one of the best done playsets I have ever seen. Although I closet watched the series on Saturdays, it was after all filmation, even I knew I was too old to buy the figures.
I think that made me mad, that is until I discovered girls and teen drama.
