    I don't know if anyone remember these toys, but I do and the guy who runs this site clearly does, he has made a few custom sets that have me blown away! If you've the time check it out. Took me a good evening to get through it all.

    The things he builds are huge!

    I know it's not tfs, but the scale is amazing.

    I always wondered what happened with these and erector sets. These things were big back in the day. I had the orange case set. I loved them more then legos.

    I had one small set, used them to make vehicles and bases for my Joes(nothing like what he has done though), liked them more than lego too. I was a bit too young to remember if there was any buzz over them, or maybe the marketing wasn't as prominent here.

    ohhhhh my gawd! I LOVED these things, and in fact there is two giant underbed tubs still at my parents house. I remember one summer we went garage sale hunting and I got so many parts form people for dirt cheap (and this is when I had a allowance and had no money :lol 
    Great find!!!

    Nice one, glad others knew about these too. Might have to dig some out when I have a chance. This guys site has me very jealous, really enjoyed watching his base evolve and I'd love that suit of robot suit he made for 3 3/4" figures.
