Nostalgic toys of the 80's
OK, I'll admit it, I am feeling a bit...old..er, lately!:(
As such I have been a bit nostalgic lately. So I hit a few 1980's web sites and checked out some of my old favs. Here is a quick run down of what I looked up:
Tranzor-Z (AKA Mazinger-Z)
Jacen and the Wheeled Warriors
Odly, I had a difficult time finding much for these on ebay and old toy sites. It seems that the last four on my list are a bit hard to find these days. I managed to find SOME stuff, but little in the way of old TOYS. And the stuff I did find was pretty cheap.
FIVE BUCKS for a MOMC action figure from 1986!!! Yep, and "Buy it Now" set at less than $10.00!!!:eek:
I just don't get it. I mean, I know that Bionic Six was a LOT less popular than SW but come on, how many of these things are floating around MOMC? Not many, is there just no market for these things?
Heck, I am SERIOUSLY considering buying a some of the old stuff, just for nostalgia's sake.
Does anyone here collect the older 80's toys? If so, where do you find most of your stuff?
Is anyone out there considering collecting vintage non-SW toys on the side?
BTW, I noticed that many of the old GI Joes are still pretty reasonably priced.
