    I have been getting more into my 90`s lines over the last year. I have collected Mummies Alive, James Bond Jr, King Arthur and the Knights of Justice, Biker Mice, Street Sharks. The list just keeps going. One line im hitting problems with is Bots Master, just can`t find the stuff anywhere :( 

    What other lines fo you guys collect?

    i actualy buy snailiens everytime i see them on ebay. i guess i liked em a lot as a kid. the problem i have with most 90's lines is how small they were in comparison to a lot of major 80's lines. i lost interest in ninja turtles so it kind of leaves smaller lines to be looked for. bots master is cool though i just wish they made more of them. i like pirates of darkwater too.

    I used to collect the Kenner Aliens line, but it's a line where their worth is so depreciated that at the time I was collecting them, they weren't worth the space they took up in my room. I dumped the big stuff and junkers off at Goodwill, but have been sitting on a couple MIB ones for no particular reason. My childhood figures and a couple of choice pieces have just enough sentimental value to keep, but they're not on display.

    Recently I've been picking up some of the rarer dinosaurs from the Jurassic Park and The Lost World lines. Much more satisfying to collect and more true to my dinosaur-love (since I was one year old!). I'm also close to getting my very own T-Rex, another youthful dream that was always unfulfilled.

    I don't collect them, but I love Snaliens! Also, there's an old playset toyline called Body Wars that, if I ever found them, I would grab immediately.

    I have some of my X-Men figures, but the army has been dwindled down to a squad nowadays. I'm trying to bulk up my Batman: Dark Knight Collection stuff again. I love some of the gimmicks they incorporated into that line. I mean, they even had a nod to Silverhawks in it. ^_^

    Im not a collector of Power Rangers, but I have picked up some cool Zords recently at the yard sales. Blizzard Megazord and Green Ninjastar Zord are cool, most of the toys are seriously damaged though, its taking ages to put complete Zords together. Is there a good reference site?

    I've got all the main protagonists and antagonists from Batman: The animated series and the new adventures. Some figures are from JLU though, so those aren't exactly 90's.

    I also still want to get the first Megazord, Dragonzord, Falconzord and Ninja Megazord.
    Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers was soooo awesome!

    Yeah I have all the main guys from The Batman, I loved the show and the figures were so well done.

    I never got Power Rangers, but its not something I grew up with. Only thing I remeber about the show is thinking the pink ranger was tasty.

    i tried for a while to re-assemble my micro machines travel city block collection, but only got a few before the prices shot up.

    now that my TF collection is done, and my joe collection is done, maybe i will try again with micro machines. i've been looking for a back to the future delorean for years.

    I collect the Marvel Toybiz figs. I am really only trying to get one of each of the cooler characters or characters I have always loved. I currently have over 100 different characters.

    I also collect any merchandise from the Tick cartoon. I have all the 6" figs except Die Fledermaus.

    Spiderman Animated. Great show, great toy line. Hobgoblin would be my favorite figure of them all. Captures his show likeness very well.

    I didn't collect any lines in the 90s...I was pretty down when the G2 line was discontinued. I tried getting into some of the newer lines like er, Extreme Dinosaurs (they were in the 90s , if I remembered correctly) but somehow I didn't get a single figure! LOL!

    Seriously 90`s lines are a nightmare to collect. All the 80`s stuff is easy to get and the knowledge is there, but 90`s is a real pain. On the cool side, there are tons of really obscure items that were europe only which makes the hunt more fun. I have nearly finiashed the Gargoyles line and they rock.

    I totally agree. I don't collect a ton of them, but I will always pick up random pieces and figs and some are tough to identify. Kenner stuff is easy enough to spot but you have to figure out if it was for Batman, Jurassic Park Terminator, etc as they reused parts all the time.

    The 80's are easy because that was the Golden Age of action figure collecting. That is why the big 4 (GI Joe, TF, Star Wars, and He-Man) are still around in new series today.

    Yeah 100%, there are 80`s items that are considered serious "grail" pieces and they show up in greater frequency than basic 90`s line. I had such a fight getting the mail in Captain Harris from Police Academy, took 18 months.

    i agree that 90's toy lines can be very difficult to find. mixed action figure lots on ebay are the best way to go if you dont mind ending up with a lot of extra. i used to hunt for jurassic park humans a lot but ended up tossing em back on ebay after i lost interest. im always on the lookout for any Tailspin figures which are actually hard to find and often go for a good amount. i cant BELIEVE that ronin warriors figures fetch the prices they do. they were practically giving those figures away at KB Toys in the late 90's. ironic!

    Dino-riders. Haven't gotten any new ones recently but will start up again in 6 months.

    Edit: Oops, mis-read. Thought it was 80's toys. So it doesn't count.
