    Finally can do the Rubiks Cube in under 40 seconds. What’s really challenging is transforming the newer Masterpiece Megatron MP-36, it’s like everything an 80s kid wanted in a Transformer.

    I LOVE your TOP 10 videos....
    Usually agree with the choices...somewhat
    But this video? DEAD WRONG on He-man.
    An honorable mention ?
    Do some research plz....
    Masters of the Universe sold well throughout the 1980s....
    However, between 1984 and 1987, this toy line was SOLEY RESPONSIBLE for something like +90% of all the growth in toy industry.
    Even out selling BARBIE. And btw...Barbie should DEFINITELY be top 10
    But Masters of the Universe WAS DEFINITELY number ONE of the 1980s.
    No question. 😐

    gijoe should be #1 and transformers #2. those were the 2 best toys in my opinion from the 80's. I think GIjoe is probably the greatest toy ever made. all you have to do is go to ebay to see how much is being sold on their. the prices are outrageous.

    Transformers should be in the #1 spot. The Rubik's Cube was cool and I remember how almost everyone had one but it's a gomer toy compared to Transformers. Transformers are the best toys of all time, at least all of them before the 86 movie came out and ruined everything.
