Star Wars not even in the top 5 so far.  TO me that says a lot...  SW has had so many up's and down's it's amazing.

That was a pretty good list. Choosing between all of those was hard, but I selected quite a few.  I added Jem and the Holograms on there for Heather, who would be very upset with me if I did not.  ;D

I think the list was mixed for the rage age-ranges...  I know I didn't have a hard time picking out 20 but I also didn't have a hard time leaving the rest behind too.

I picked (not all):

-Star Wars
-GIJoe (my #1 btw)
-Legos
-Erector Sets
-Lincoln Logs
-Monopoly
-Clue
-Silly Putty
-Nintendo
-Atari

I picked a full 20 but I don't even recall who all I looked at.  Oh yeah and I picked BB Guns too because god knows if you didn't have a red rider as a child, you were deprived.  One of the funnest toys I ever had (if you can consider a BB Gun a toy), and I still bust out the old bb gun and pop off at some cans across the road.  It was a toy I used religiously and it made me more than a capable shot when the time came for me to graduate up to real guns...  I owe my abilities in competition shoots because of that old hand-me-down red rider rifle.

I don't remember everything that I voted for but I did vote for the following:

Star Wars
GI Joe
Big Wheel
Playstation
Transformers

Most of those shaped my formative years, with the exception of the PS.  I also listed Trivial Pursuit because my family plays it all the time now.

Apparently, the list can't count, because I tried to submit these 20:

1. Atari
2. Bicycle
3. Colorforms
4. Crayola Crayons
5. Etch A Sketch
6. Evil Knievel Doll & Motorcycle Set
7. G.I. Joe
8. Green Plastic Army Men
9. LEGO
10. Little Golden Books
11. Nerf
12. PlayDoh
13. Shrinky Dinks
14. Silly Putty
15. Six Million Dollar Man Doll
16. Star Wars figures
17. Tinker Toys
18. Viewmaster
19. Water Guns
20. Weebles

But it said I "could only select 20." So, I eliminated #10. Little Golden Books (who needs to read, anyway), and resubmitted my list.  :P

I did a quick vote again today on a whim, and afterwards saw that for the first time (that I've checked it anyways) Star Wars is in the "hot list" for today.  Hopefully it ends up there at the end of all this.

I voted again too, and was happy to see He-Man and Transformers alongside Star Wars.

(C'mon GI Joe and TMNT!)

Has anyone been watching this yet?  It started last night, with numbers 100-81, and continues through Friday (9 CST).  I'm curious to see where Star Wars figures land, I would hope in the top 10, but you never know.
