Re: Did anyone collect Secret Wars toys when they were younger?
I started collecting them shortly after the old Secret Wars when they were more truely 5" and had some mobility. You could find just about every X character there was with about 9 versions of Cable and 12 or 13 versions of Wolverine and the classic Iron Man collection. I had just about every armor. The classic figure is Archangel that was used for just about every custom there was including Vision and Wonder Man as specialty "Gold" figures. Remember those? :-)
