More specifically Hot Rod?
Thats what I thought thanks.
And yet some people complain about modern deluxes going from $9.99 to $12.99
You took the words right out of my mouth! It's
I think Autobot cars could be found as low as $10 back in the day, but some places charged more. so $15 wouldn't have been that unusual.
There's a site or two with original prices, but can't find them right now.
I remember seeing Hot Rod on clearance for (I think) 5.99. Too bad we were school shopping and TFs were not on the agenda!
Yeah, there is a nice site with all sorts of 80's toy ads from print sources. I thought I had it bookmarked, but I can't find it.
Toaster something I think...
If anyone has it please LMK. Thanks!
A couple of my G1 figures still have the price tags on em. Hot Rod was priced at 14.99 and Bluestreak was the same as others have mentioned.
That goes to show how cheap Chinese products are.
I remember when I bought my first movie toys for 5 bucks each...
now..........10-12 bucks for deluxes I'm not blaming the economy anymore
I blame Hasbro
Vintage Space Toaster Palace. Always glad to be helpful. Hot Rod would've cost between $9.99 and $14.99 in 1986, which translates to about $20-30 in modern prices thanks to the magic of inflation.
I remember getting TM Hotrod for $8. That price has been imprinted on my mind ever since then.
remember when it cost 50 cents for a bolt at the "hardware store" now its 12 cents at home depot. Old time stores didnt have the logistics that they have now so not as much buying power. Really makes you curious how your parents could afford a 15 dollar (in 1986 doolar) toy? lol....makes you appreciate it more.....thats like 30 in todays dollars
well, i dont remember exactly how much certain 80's bots costs, but i rember they were expensive, expecially for a 7 year old kid on a chincy ass allowance. but back then tf were diecast, had nice rubber wheels and rolled sweet as hell
Thanks for the link!
Lucky you, I got mine for USD $21.54.
minibots, combinder limbs, etc. $3-5
autobot cars and basically any transformer this size:$10-15
i think i heard that Scorponok cost $45
Fort Max cost $100 retail (which is expensive since you can get him for $7 these days HAHAHAHAHAHA)
it is scary i know this even though i was born in 1991 lol
Everything cost more in the 80s except the burgers. We moved on to 2010.
