Ahh yes DJ, Rob came with the Deluxe Edition of the NES. I know Gyromite came with the system and I believe that Super Mario Bros. came with it as well. Gyromite was the single most boring game that I ever played and Rob didn't add anything to it. :)
I had robotix..that was cool when I was in like 6th grade.
My older brothers had a cool construction set called something like "Panels and Girders", it was plastic beams the you snap together to form the framework of a building, then snap on plastic window panels and , Voila! You have a skyscraper in your bedroom! That was fun to play with, but the cat didn't enjoy being enclosed in a plastic mini-skyscraper.
Sorry, I'm a little late gettin' my thoughts in, but wow, did that DATAMAN pic bring back the memories. It's one of those toys that I thought *I* was the only one in history to ever play with it as a lad. Totally, totally cool.
