Buys of the Week

Shockwave Transformers Collection

Looking for a dealer who buys old toys?  Contact us to sell your toys now.  We’re always buying vintage toy collections. Take a look at some of the brands we buy, perhaps you have some to sell us as well.


Sell Vintage G1 Transformers Toys

Jetfire Hasbro G1 Transformers Action Figure

Generation 1 Transformers, our favorite toys, straight from Cybertron.  Some of the best robot toys ever made. Originally made by Takara, Hasbro saw the genius and quickly licensed them for sale here in the United States as well as elsewhere throughout the world.


Sell Vintage Star Wars Action Figures

Star Wars Vintage Kenner Boxed Sets

The 3-3/4 inch toys took over the toy world in the late 1970’s.  The first toys were only available thru mail order, and even then all you really got was an IOU for the figures “soon”.  Some of the early figures are not the best sculpted, but really kicked off the toy industry into what it looks like today.


Sell Vintage He-Man Collections

Mattel He-Man MOTU Action Figures

Perhaps the most macho of action figures, somehow they all look like bodybuilders.  The figures areperfectly at home in the 5-1/2 inch size.  Just imagine them at 3-3/4 inch size.  Not a pretty sight. One of the most popular cartoon’s at the time, and one of the most popular toy lines today with the Classics series of toys.


Sell Vintage Thundercats Figures

Thundercats LJN Action Figures

Just wish this line was about twice as large as it is.  Of the major toy lines from the 1980’s in my mind the best sculpted.  LJN really hit a home run with these figures, very nice quality.


Sell Vintage G.I. Joe Collections

Gi Joe Steel Brigade Hasbro Action Figure

Not too obviously Hasbro copied Kenner’s Star Wars line game-plan.  G.I. Joes will always be one of our favorites due to their highly poseable nature, being well sculpted, along with endless weapon systems to do battle!


Sell Your Small Soldiers Toys

Small Soldiers Hasbro Action Figures Sealed

Hasbro released the “Small Soldiers” line of action figures in 1998. These action figures were created to be relentless war machines. Several different figures and one vehicle were released in this collection. Archer, Brick Bazooka, Chip Hazard, Flatchoo, and Freakenstein were just a few of the action figures that were released. Buzzsaw Tank was the vehicle.


Speclatron Toy Buyers

Speclatron S&T Toys Vintage Action Figure

Speclatron was released by S&T Toys in 1983. This line of action figures is unique with there glitter coloration.  There were six figures released in this line. These figures came with a variety of different weapons. Hero, Kandar, Deemin, Dethlor, Adak, and Venum were the first six figures that launched. Orian was also introduced to this line of figures shortly after the initial release.

Bio: I’m the founder and owner of Wheeljack’s Lab. My vision has always been to reunite customers with their favorite childhood toys, triggering fond memories, and reigniting their imaginations. Every day I work in the “lab” where it’s Christmas 365 days a year; scouring the internet – like we did the Sears Catalog of yesteryear – for the next great treasure, awaiting the arrival of the postman as if he was Santa Claus himself and helping collectors worldwide with their own versions of Christmas. Every day as a vintage toy buyer is an absolute joy!
