Cool! I had one of those when I was a kid... got it at a flea market.
The greatest toy ever invented...
And here is a really cool link to an awesome blog written about this incredible toy that a generation of kids remembers even if they haven't thought of it in decades.
Interesting fact: The late-great Dave Stevens did the concept art for it!!
i had like an off brand one of those growing up. and we lost half of the plates, but it was still pretty cool.
I too had a off-brand version. But fun fun fun.
I got the G.I. Joe one back in the day. God, it had to be Christmas '91 or '92. Probably the same year I got the G.I. Joe Headquarters and my Super Nintendo. Man, I was spoiled rotten...

holy shit. You have filled me with nostalgia, for I had one of those bad boys and didn't remember it at all until now.
Every time I see this thread's title on the front page I think it says "Movie Maker" and I get a little sad.
Man...good memories of playing with that toy. Got it for my birthday.
I was just talking about that thing this weekend! Apparently there was a chick version too, called "Fashion Plates".
