My parents have been giving me boxes of my old toys whenever I visit so they can have more room. I've been selling this crap on Ebay, and I honestly have no idea what this. I know I had a few figures from this line, but for the life of me can't think of it's name.

It's like a rock creature of some kind that also happens to be a low rent transformer. It turns into a rock!

Lastly...I know what these are. They are the lamest Batman figures ever. Nothing says stealthy detective like a laser cannon on your arm or an all white arctic outfit.

When its in the car mode can you roll it back so It moves by itself? And then does it pop open and land on its feet?

Wow...that was fast. That's exactly what he is. A quick search reveals that his name is Sticks n Stones. Looking at these, I had a lot more of these than I remember. They are long gone now though.

It's a Go-Bot. No, seriously, it turns into a rock. There was a movie about it. It's fantastically terrible.

No, he doesn't really do anything. It's a very lame figure.

I only had one Rock Lord. Tombstone. He looked cool enough to go into cast rotation with my other toys.

Dude I remember these! They were fun to play with outside, because they sort of blended in.

I still remember seeing the commercial for that figure at my Grandma's. I remember thinking it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I was so obsessed with Batman at that point (because of the Burton film) that I had to have anything with the Bat logo on it.

I am glad I've grown up and moved on (played an hour of Arkham Asylum on my PS3 earlier today) :surrend:

The most absurd Batman figure I can remember, or at least the first one I decidedly noticed to be absurd, was Arctic Attack Batman. It was Batman in a white and red costume of some sort with skis and some kind of jetpack on. It flew in the face of everything I knew Batman to be. And it was from the Animated Series too so.

There should be a thread dedicated to stupid Batman and Spider-man action figures that toy companies thought kids should have no choice but to want to buy.

Awesome!

I have a Hook Horror around somewhere. I've had the Golden Dragon twice now and its one of those figures where the plastic is so brittle that the little pegs holding the wings in the back will snap no matter what. :(

I loved my vampire hunter spider-man from the 90s.

Yes, spider-man has long black nails.

Guilty as charged. I used to have everything in alphabetical order, but broke the habit a few months ago with books/trades/ graphic novels.

Hook Horror was awesome! Dragonne too. I didn't have many other D&D figures though so they mainly fought He-Man.

I do. Divided into TV and movies. When you get enough of them, it makes sense.

Gobots vs. Rock Lords is amazing for a number of reasons, first and foremost being that it didn't get shot down the moment it was proposed.

Another question for you guys. Who made the original Nightmare Before Christmas figures? I am talking about the figures that came out when the movie was in the theater and long before it was a phenomenon. I have this 7 or 8 inch bendy Jack Skellington that comes with an orange tombstone/ base, but can't find any information on it since there is so much product for that film now.

I feel it's my moral duty to help anyway I can with questions about 80's toys. :)
