You'd have to rent a "sure thing" safety deposit box that you KNOW still exists today, and set it up that you would pay for that box from 1938 to now.
In one of the King Dark tower books, one of the evil powers locks up a magic crystal ball "black 13" in the vaults of the World Trade Center back in the 80's. Flash forward to now. Fail.
I guess we would all have to do some previous research.
Also, you know that the publisher burned many copies of Action #1 in his house to stay warm during the winter? Sad.

...can't believe nobody has mentioned going back to '82 because 'you could take state'... (as long as coach puts you in)
I'd hit up '76. I could pick all the Micronauts as they are released, Star Wars, Joes, TFs... Plus I could see some great bands in their hay day.

Well If I could only have one day... It would have to be somewhere around 84-85. That way you could get Most of the Original Joes, Lots of cool Star Wars stuff. He-man, Some Super Powers, Gen1 Transformers and a lot of other cool 80's stuff like those mini Pac-man Games.
But I've often thought I would love to go back to 1980 and relive my life with everything that I know now. Yeah I'd be a weird 5yo but I was a strange kid anyway.
As for the stores, I'd hit Sears, K-Mart, Wal-Mart. TRU, Lionel Playworld, Toy World.. and lots of comic book shops.
A Gem of That Size Answers ALL my questions.

Definately mid-to late 1980's.

Id go back to 1949. Before cell phones, computers, all that crap. Live out the 50's and early 60's, then skip back forward to '84 and pick up anything I could get my hands on.

to answer the original question: I'd go back to 1987. I remember that the '86 stuff was still pretty plentiful along with big '85 items like the Flagg back then. I'd buy one of everything to open, one of everything to keep in the package and then spend the rest of my 2009 savings, checking, cash, 401K what-ever to buy extra Defiants, Terrordomes, Special Mission Brazil 5-packs, Flaggs and Crossfire RC's to sell later when I returned from my time-travel toy spree

But, in regards to joes probably 1984-1985 B/C I would buy alot of G1 Transformers and robotech stuff also, and Walmart didn't come to Connecticut until the late 1990s so it would be Child World and TRU for me!

I'd go back to 1978, and find my future wife's 8yr old self, and look her in the eye, and say, "Hi, did you enjoy learning how to write in cursive today? Good! By the way, your future husband was just born 10 minutes ago. Check ya later!"
Mind trip, yo. Mind. Trip.
