    One toy I know of that you can never find is called "Monster Face." How many of you remember that toy? For those that don't, the commercial is uploaded here on Retro Junk, and YouTube. It was basically a monster version of Mr. Potato Head. Only better, lol. Mainly because it did more. You could make the eyes, and mouth move. And when you filled it up with this green glob stuff, there was a button you would press to make it ooze out on the side of the head. Anyway, what makes this toy impossible to find is that it's never on Ebay, or any other websites that sell toys. I'm guessing that's because this toy wasn't a big seller, and didn't stay on the market too long. Maybe because parents complained that it was "too scary for kids." Heck, I remember when they re-released it. But when they did, it was called something else. I must admit, it's a toy I would really like to have. And if anyone here on Retro Junk has one, and is willing to part with it, I'd gladly buy it from you. What are some toys from when you were younger that you can't find?

      The Invisible Man Playset is ridiculously hard to find. Rediculously.

        The Bionic man probe robot is INSANE to find, and if you do, expect to shell out a kidney for one.

          I'm not quite in the position to be buying old toys, but I've been looking for Yo Gabba Gabba stuff for my daughter...you'd be shocked at how little there is now. It was popular for a year or two, but has since nose-dived into a weird footnote in the canon of Nickelodeon merchandise.

            The Barbie and the Rockers' Hot Rockin' Van made in 1986. It's never on ebay and even private collectors can't locate it. Hell, if I didn't have a commercial for it on an old tape of mine, I would doubt its existence.

                  My favorite toy is the Fisher Price doll house. It was my sister's before I was born and then it became mine. I still play with it, and I'm a teenager!

                      I just remembered that the old Mega-Man toys are impossible to find. I bought a small lot of them like, two or three years ago after Christmas. I got Mega Man, Proto Man, Rush, Cut Man, and Bomb Man. The lot costed me $63, and something cents, but it was worth it, because you're not going to find something like it online EVER!

                          Any toys that are hard to find for me?
                          Maybe those Eek the Cat stuffed toys, and those vintage Bomberman figurines that are sought after by people who collect video game memorabilia if you ask me.

                                    Raph, I found a picture of what Monster Face looked like as well as everything that it came with. Please note that this is a screen capture that I took while viewing the commercial on YouTube, just at commercial's end:



                                    Maybe it will refresh your memory a little bit. And don't forget to thank me for the picture.

                                      Thanks for the picture bud, I appreciate it. I must admit, I never forgot what Monster Face looked like, because I've seen so many pictures of it put together so many times, it's pretty much stuck in my memory. Just so you guys know, I didn't lie about my Mega Man toys. I would never lie about something like that!

                                        anyone remember bucky o hare and the action figure line? The marketers really screwed up and ordered way too many of the toad air marshall figure. Youd go to various toy stores and there would be 20 figures, and 18 would be the air marshall. Its a shame, some the lack of a diverse toy line caused the show to be cancelled.
