Re: What Star Trek toys did you grow up playing with?

When I was a kid in the 70s, I played with my Mego Star Trek action figures, and the Enterprise bridge playset.

I built the AMT model kits of the Trek ships, and would play with them, along with the figures, as a way of seeing the action play out in "exterior shots." I'd play with the ships, then "cut to" the interior of the ship by playing with the figures.

I'd spend hours creating my own episodes of Star Trek. Those were the days....

I'm glad to hear I wasn't the only one to "play" that way. (Though I was 20 years later. )
