Even though my toy buying was waning considerably by 1984 (sadly I was getting more into Doctor Who paperbacks than girls) I do admire some of the cool gimmicks used to spawn action figures at the time..
Take for example Galoob's Infaceables line, a series of Heroes and Villains whose faces changed into horrible beasts. The Infaceables didn't rock the toy world (probably due to the lack of animated series) but they're kind of a fun, typically mid eighties SciFi/Fantasy toy line. Also, dig the vehicle names, "Incredible Thrasher" is my new screenname on my Wii Active game...:
