QotD: Pleasepleaseplease!

What was the one toy you wanted as a kid that your parents never bought you?
Submitted by Princess of Darkness.

I eventually bought one for myself at 21 years of age.  My daughter found it one day and now one of the lions heads are broken, the weapons are scattered, and the box is gone.

LOL I had one of those as a kid, but it went into a garage sale! So when I was around 21 I got another one off eBay just like you!

I had a Voltron. One of my favorite toys of all time. My favorite part was the lion heads that shot out of his arms. It was also cool how he always sliced his enemies in half at the end of each show. Violence shmiolence.
Do you remember the later Voltron that came out? I'll have to see if I can find a picture, it but it wasn't nearly as cool. It had like a bazillion parts and was all plastic. The classic is still the best.

I have this. It is on my desk now. My kids got ahold of it a few times and there are broken tails and broken ears now.*sigh*
