1977-I got a whole mess of toys.

But the one that took the cake was this robot that I could shoot his hand out of it's socket. It now kind of reminds me of the lion Voltron, but had a pointed head, IIRC. It was similar in color scheme too, again, IIRC.

That thing was awesome. I managed to piss off my grandfather because he wanted to set up the racing track "Santa" brought for me. But I just wasn't interested.

That sort of reminds me of a robot I got as a kid once, sort of a rip off of Voltron from what I remember.  I don't know if it was a "name" toy by any means, but it was made up of motorcycles for the arms and legs, and I think a 3 or 4 wheeler for the chest/head.  It shot fists and things like that too, but I don't remember what it was called.  I remember playing with that robot quite a bit as a kid though.

Yep, that sounds about like what I described.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.
