    Hey you guys,

    I'm compiling a list of GROSS OUT / Disgusting toys of the 80's and 90's (of all types).

    If you have any good suggestions please feel free to contribute.

    The more disgusting and bad taste the better.

    Thank you ;)

    Pee Wee Herman figures. All I can think about is the movie theater incident where he was caught beating off under a trenchcoat.

    When did RGB use Playmates? Extreme GB used Trendmasters and RGB was Kenner.

    I still don't understand what the appeal was supposed to be for Madballs. But remember I couldn't read a comic book back in 1986 that didn't advertise the heck out of them.

    Cool weird looking balls you can have a catch with or throw against the wall? I used to love Madballs.

    Masters of the Universe had the slime pit toy.

    Not really a toy but Garbage Pail Kids were cards.

    I was probably just not their market. The only gross out stuff I ever got into was Garbage Pail Kids cards around that same time - mostly because it appealed to my absurdist style humor. Money spent on Madballs could have been spent on a cheap Transformer, a Gobot or a GIJoe figure - or a couple packs of Garbage Pail Kids cards, I suppose.

    I'm with you there. I get them but they had little to no appeal to me. GPK Cards on the other hand...

    You are right, I meant Kenner but must've been on a Playmates kick in my head.

    You had me wondering if I missed a line.
