I('m fairly open-minded about assorted merch that comes out related to movies that arean't ctually transforming, but I think this one stretches things a little too far.

I'm still not sure who would actually get them and like them for more than an hour.

I know of at least TWO people who would adore these forever. One is a 6 year old girl, the other is a 30-something woman (won't give her age here in case she's shown this link :P ) who collects anything and everything egg-like.

A-HA! So this is why Ryan was quizzing some of us on Facebook (and myself and others were tearing a** through the toy listings on Ebay and every online toy site) about egg shaped toys from the very early 80's.
After trying to hunt down these little buggers grand-daddy, I'm buying the whole lot of these just on general principle. :P

If I owned one of these, I'd be terrified that it was watching me at night.

hmmm, that is indeed a tough choice. I'd have to call it a tie.

I don't understand the "flesh tone" area around the eyes. Does that represent skin? Are they skin-covered eggs dressed as Transformers?! The thought of a skin-covered egg is kinda making me a bit sick... :SICK:

These are horrifying. No, seriously, I mean they're horrifying. The eyes will haunt me for a long, long time.

What a terrible idea.

Yeah this is why. I'll be damned if I can remember the type of toy that it was. It's like I'm the only one in the world who had those Egg toys as a kid. For those of you who want to help me figure out what I had as a little kid, here are some bullet points.

* The toys were all "Egg" based/themed, not just egg shaped. The fact that they were Eggs was the primary point of this toyline.
* I swear they were called "Egg People" or something basic like that.
* The "Egg People" might have been from "Egg City", "Egg Village", "Egg Town", or something to that effect.
* They were aimed at young children (i.e. 3 to 5 or something like that).
* They were not action figures (i.e. they were not Meteorbs, Rock Lords or any other action figure egg shaped toy)
* They were not Weebles, Little People, Nerfuls, Mr. Potato Head, etc. Those are egg shaped toys, not egg themed toys.
* The primary shared body was a white plastic egg. I believe they had painted on faces. The egg bodies might have opened (split in half) to store their pieces but I don't remember that clearly (and that memory might be influenced by Mr Potato Head).
* I think their arms and legs were removable, but I can't remember. Their arms were more like Mickey Mouse or Mr. Potato Head like arms.
* My favorite one was the Fireman Egg guy. He either had a firetruck or a firestation playset, I can't remember which (actually I remember both but I think I'm asking a lot of my memories from when I was around 4 or 5).
* I was born in 1977, so these toys were available at retail stores around 1981 give or take a couple of years (late 70s, early 80s).
* I'm from Michigan -- it's possible that these were a local toy to the mid to southeast portions of Michigan.
* I swear I remember seeing this firefighter playset a couple of years later at Toys R Us in Southfield, MI. I remember seeing the set and thinking to myself "wow they're still selling these" or "they brought them back" or something like that.
* I remember having 5 of these egg guys but I can't tell you what the others were aside from the Fireman Egg guy.
* I don't remember there being egg animals, just egg people. But that doesn't meant that there weren't, I just didn't have any if there were.
* I have scoured the Internet looking for these damn things. I can't find a single mention of anything like what I'm remembering. Nothing on eBay, nothing on vintage toy websites, I have tried tons of searches on Google and Google Images but I've come up with nothing.

It's perfect desk fodder toys ... right alongside the upcoming Kre-o mini-figures (Kreons) and the Mighty Muggs.

some eggs, yes. some eggs are blue w/ speckles. the last few dozen eggs I saw at the store were white.

...but no matter the color, I still stand by my claim that a skin-covered egg would be sickening.

You've never seen a brown egg? They're just as common as the white ones.
