With roots older than any other action figure, G.I. Joe spans back to 1963. G.I. Joe was a “mobile strike force”.  Their mission to protect America from threats, chiefly Cobra Commander and his Cobra army.


Matchbox & Panosh Place Voltron Figures

Matchbox Panosh Place Voltron Toys

Matchbox partnered with Popy, a division of Bandai produced the initial Voltron figures. The only problem was that Matchbox had to tweak all the toys to make them safety compliant in the US.  Wonderful high-quality die-cast toys.


Mattel Shogun Warriors Toys

Shogun Warriors Mattel Action Figures

In 1978, Mattel’s Shogun Warriors arrived in stores. They were well-made, durable robots with spring-loaded weapons. In some cases, giant robots standing 24” tall. The line included figures, land vehicles, air assets, and monsters.


Bandai Godaikin Robots

Bandai Godaikin Action Figures

Godaikin name originates from “gokin” and “dai, which means big alloy.  Standing 10-12” tall the figures were impressive. By targeting a slightly older demographic this allowed them legally to keep their spring-loaded weapons.


G1 Transformers Vintage Hasbro

Hasbro G1 Transformers Vintage Action Figures

Transformers action figures were originally released in 1984 by Hasbro. The Transformers brand has been for sale ever since. Robots in disguise was a great concept. I hope you enjoyed this week’s vintage toy buys.

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!
