Super Mates Episode 6: 80s Toy Memories Part 2

Chris and Cindy Franklin dig deeper into their 80s toy box! Chris waxes poetically about his love for the be-all-end-all of DC toy lines, Kenner’s Super Powers Collection. Oh, yeah, he also mentions its “pretty-in-its-own-way” cousin, Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars. Cindy talks about My Buddy, and of course the conversation must touch upon his demon-spawn, Chucky!

But there’s more! You’ll get fond childhood memories of Care Bears, Transformers, and My Little Pony along the way. Chris laments how M.A.S.K. went Nascar, and Cindy says some truly, truly outrageous things about Jem!

This episode has more 80s goodness than a Trapperkeeper stuffed with a Flock of Seagulls!
