Is Astro Lion the worst toy ever?

Musings By Joschik

Christian obsesses over collectibles, pop culture, antiques and toys more than the average person, but (he hopes) in a productive way. Documenting collectibles has been a passion since working on a book about his favorite childhood toys from Timpo almost 40 years ago.

I kind of missed Masters of the Universe TV Show and its 100s of associated toys as a child but even so see them now joining hobbyDB.  Some of them are quite cool and as toys incredible imaginative.  Others less so.  The worst to me seems to be Astro Lion.


Astro Lion was a Meteorb, a race that could transform from an animal-like form to something else.  Sounds cool, until you hear they can transform into an Egg.

Sounds like Benjamin Button only that they can come back.  Cannot really see the excitement for a kid to play with so am awarding it with the worst toy ever – can you beat it?  Let us know in the comments! Oh, and please don’t forget to add an image.
