Have you ever stopped to think about some of your favorite toys as a kid?
Maybe you grew up in the midst of the first three "Star Wars" movies, and as a child you couldn't get enough action figures from those films, including several Millennium Falcons or a variety of Darth Vader dolls.
Perhaps as a young child, you gravitated toward Hulk Hogan or any number of the colorful characters from the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), now known as WWE. Wrestling had its first heyday in the 1980s, and kids couldn't get enough of those action figures.
Fast forward to the 1990s and one of the bigger lines of toys came from the "Mortal Kombat" movies and video games. As much as younger, teen fans loved the games and movie, they equally embraced the toys, too.
In 2015, you'd assume that those aforementioned brands would have seen better days, particularly when you're discussing the most recent Toy Fair, where all the hottest toys are revealed. Granted, not all of the so called must have toys include the likes of "Star Wars" or "WWE," but you can't argue that not only are those toys lines still wildly popular but that they're just as relevant as they were some 20 or 30 years ago.
