Yes, as a kid, it was quite appealing to not only have action figures, but those with holographic chests. But were holographic chests an 80s fad?

The 80s was a cool era for toys. We got mini-comics with the likes of Masters of the Universe and Super Powers. The Secret Wars toy line had holographic shields. And we got mystical action figures with holographic chests. All good fun.
