GoBots Puzzler and Transformers Jetfire Newspaper Advertisement

Battlegrip.com - 21 January, 2018 - 03:45
December 15, 1985. We turn to the Des Moines Register newspaper for this Toys Plus newspaper ad featuring both Tonka’s GoBots and Hasbro’s Transformers toys, though I really have to question that price on the GoBots Puzzler since less than a buck feels really cheap for the toy in 1985. My guess? The store had GoBots puzzles priced at $0.99/each... Read more →

August 20, 1978. The Lincoln Journal Star of Lincoln, Nebraska, brings us another early look at the Dungeons & Dragons* roleplaying game, this time of the “advanced player handbook” at Chick Bartlett’s Hobby Town store.

Battlegrip.com - 20 January, 2018 - 05:30
I’ve reviewed two of the Zybots cheap transforming robot toys before (Earthbreaker review here, Explorer review here), so it shouldn’t be surprising that when I found this ad in the January 6, 1985, Hartford Courant newspaper that I had to capture and share the ad block with you.

October 14, 1984. Look, kids, it’s Windcharger in this newspaper ad from The Morning Call in 1984! My very first ever Transformers toy in an advertisement, even if the ad doesn’t quite get the toyline’s name right. Still, let’s ignore the error and instead just focus on these awesome toys.

Battlegrip.com - 20 January, 2018 - 02:41
March 14, 1976. This short snippet from the Asbury Park Press newspaper of Asbury, New Jersey, gives us one of our earliest peeks at the Dungeons & Dragons* roleplaying game in mainstream media. I love that it is a college political and debate group at the university that was holding a D&D event. Does this mean we have government officials... Read more →

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 19 January, 2018 - 10:16
Second official trailer for TOMB RAIDER has dropped, featuring a somewhat much clearer message about the film's story, and more visuals of what's happening around her, rather than mostly "Lara Croft" (just a little bit), and without a new movie poster for folks to comment on? :p "Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she
