The Geek Mash Crew's Favourite Toys: Q&A


Casey, Brad, Kayleigh and Matt from Geek Mash got together to share their favourite toys. Check out their answers below!

Kayleigh

Favourite toy growing up?
I've always been a Disney girl, so my favourite toys were definitely my Disney dolls, along with my Barbies and Barbie Dream House! Proper little girlie girl. :) 

Favourite series of toys you liked collecting?
I remember having lots of collections. They included: Pogs, Puppy in my Pockets, My Little Pony and Trolls. Oh my god, this is making me feel a little old now... 


Toy Series you like to have a come back?
I swear everything I liked seems to have made a comeback, like Polly Pocket...although they seem to have lost their charm compared to the older sets. Things are a lot bigger and less detailed now. I say, bring back Polly Pocket in the form I remember!

What toy did you always want as a kid but never got it?
One of this electric cars that you can drive around...never had that. Although we had our trusty Crazy Coupe! :P

Favourite Christmas/birthday toy you ever got?
I remember being over the moon when I got my Barbie Dream House when I was little!

What toys do you collect now?
Tsum Tsums, random figures, and a plethora of teddies! I'd say Disney-themed stuff tends to be my main focus though.

What's your favourite toy as a adult?
Hmm...I dunno! I quite like my Disney memorabilia.

What toy would you love to buy again from your childhood?
I'd love to have my Disney dolls back, like my dancing Esmerelda doll, or my large Ariel one that sang Part of Your World. My questions all seem to be about Disney, haha. I also had A LOT of Harry Potter memorabilia I've misplaced now from when I was about 13.

If could get any toy from a franchise made would would you choose?
Hmmm...good question! I'm actually not sure though!

Got any toys you looking forward to buying in the future?
No doubt I'll find something Disney related I'll end up buying, as I'm a big kid. :) 

Kayleigh and her dad...and Sticklebacks!

Brad

Favourite toy growing up?
Anything Transformers or Turtles was my go to toys and Power Rangers when thst came out.

Favourite series of toys you liked collecting?
Transformers. I was obsessed with them since my brother collected them too and I carried on the tradition. I'm still into them.

Toy Series you like to have a come back? 

Centurions, these were a group of heroes in exo suits that you could attach weapons to. One for air called Ace McCloud, water was Max Ray and ground was Sam Rockwell
I just loved the plug and play aspect with the different expansions you could get


What toy did you always want as a kid but never got it?
I was pretty lucky with the toys I asked for, I would get them at bootsales or for Christmas and birthdays but there was one toy that slipped through which was the Turtles sewer playlet.

I was lucky to have the Ghostbusters HQ so used that as a base for all my figures instead

Favourite Christmas/birthday toy you ever got?
The Power Rangers Megazord. Check out the smile on my face in the photo

What toys do you collect now? 
I've not really got any recently but I'll pick up a cool Transformer if I see it in a sale or at an Expo.

I would class anything with a cool design or a character i like as something i would get, stuff like hot rod and Optimus are my main collections, and cool designs like triple changer Springer.

I collected Transformers Alternators for a while which are realistic cars including Subaru Impreza's (Smokescreen), Dodge Vipers (Sideswipe), Chevrolet Corvette's (Battle Ravage), Honda S2000 (Arcee) and Ford GT's (Rodimus)
These toys looks superb as robot AND car but are a total bitch to transform.

What's your favourite toy as a adult?
Masterpiece Optimus Prime released for the Transformers 20th Anniversary (not the recent smaller one).

It's just so detailed and has a definite weight behind it. He has flip up screens on his arms that feature an image of Bumblebee and Starscream from the old cartoon, plus his trusty energy axe that you can swap with one of his hands AND The Matrix of Leadership in his chest that lights up.

What toy would you love to buy again from your childhood?
A few different Transformers including Powermaster Optimus Prime, Afterburner, Hot Rod and Radius Prime.
Which I did as you can see from the pic. :D

If could get any toy from a franchise made would would you choose? 

A lot of toys have been made in recent years for tons of different franchises, I would have said Super Metroid but there is a freaking awesome figure from the Good Smile company, it is GORGEOUS!!!

Got any toys you looking forward to buying in the future? 

Oh if only I had the money, I would buy the new Titan series Fortress Maximus.

Yeah another Transformer, I'm predictable like that. They brought out a line of toys in the middle of the G1 line called Headmasters where the toys heads would transform into a small robot.

The original Forts had a head that Transformed into a robot with ANOTHER head - basically Transformception.

The original stood about 2ft tall.

Favourite toy growing up?

That's a hard question as I loved so many, but I will have to say Lego as there were so many different types of sets, and even to this day I still buy some here and there. At the moment I am rebuilding my Death Star since moving in. 


Favourite series of toys you liked collecting?
Think it would have to be micro machines the Star Wars collection i had them all and loved playing with them all the time. 

Toy Series you like to have a come back?
M.A.S.K was such a awesome series, great characters and transforming vehicles that looked very cool. 

What toy did you always want as a kid but never got it?
I got most the toys I wanted as a kid, but the main thing I always wanted was Lego Star Wars as most of the stuff I got was just normal Lego City as it was the cheapest. 

Favourite Christmas/birthday toy you ever got? 
One year I got Robocop toys. It was the police van, Robocop with extra pieces and some enemies. 

Loved that toy but bet i annoyed my family loads playing siren all the time. 

What toys do you collect now? 
I still collect my Lego but don't play with it these days just build it for display, also collect Hot Toys these days what cost a lot of money but the level detail is so amazing that they are worth it, if want a small size of your actor then they are for you. They look so life like and identical most of the time to the actor or character. 

What's your favourite toy as a adult?
It has to be my Hot Toys always wanted cool statues when I was older but a lot of the time I don't like the poses or the detail ain't as good. Hot Toys allows you to pose them how you like and has incredible detail. 

What toy would you love to buy again from your childhood?
Love to get back all the classic Star Wars toys i had as a kid but my parents sold them all for very cheap when i was a teenager. Maybe one day will get them again but they cost so much these days so likely won't.

If could get any toy from a franchise made would would you choose?
I love to get some really great detailed toys from my favourite video games like Okami, Shenmue and The Legend of Zelda as most of them ain't the best. 

Got any toys you looking forward to buying in the future? 
At the moment, I only have some Hot Toys ordered what I can't wait to display, especially after San Diego Comic-Con this year where they showed the Suicide Squad series (it looks amazing), that Harley will be mine.

Favourite toy growing up? 
Thunderbirds Tracey Island play set.


Toy Series you like to have a come back?
I'd love Mighty Max to come back, those little pocket sets were great. 

What toys do you collect now?
Not really toys but my fave thing to collect which I did for a while as an adult was Hornby train arts. I had a fairly decent table layout with connections and everything. Have put it on hold for the moment

What's your favourite toy as a adult?
Not really a toy, but video games
