“Rodimus Prime remembers the Transformers greatest battle on Earth.”

Battlegrip.com - 5 hours 2 min ago
I mentioned earlier today that this has been a day of snapping photographs and scanning material. Well, one of the scanned items is this 1987 Transformers flyer that offers a variety of Transformers toys as direct sales items. Mail-away offers found their way into my first book about action figure marketing in the eighties (see the Kickstarter page) and it... Read more →

Well, as I mentioned earlier today I’m constructing a companion to Each Sold Separately and have been putting together all of the necessary tools for the new book to come together. The below screenshot shows the mail-away section in progress. The entire... Read more →

Action Figures Not Included

Battlegrip.com - 11 hours 56 min ago
With Each Sold Separately (Kickstarter page) safely off to the printer I’ve found my mind still thinking about toy marketing in the eighties. It hasn’t helped matters that books like Toy Wars* and The Real Toy Story* have stayed close by my side these last few weeks, but there’s so much fascinating information out there that I just keep digging...

Battlegrip.com - 13 hours 12 min ago
Third party Transformers toymaker, Badcube, has revealed that they’re creating Wardog, their take on the classic 1985 Warpath character. This should be great, but Badcube has their work cut out for them if they’re going to outdo the Transformers Generations Warpath toy from 2011 (quick pics posted here).

1984 Strawberry Shortcake Club Offer from Kenner

Battlegrip.com - 15 hours 27 min ago
One of the cool bits inside the Strawberry Shortcake Mapple Stirrup box was this double-sided card offering kids a chance to join Kenner’s Strawberry Shortcake club. The best part was that the club was free, and once kids received their membership kit they found not only a few free trinkets but also offers to buy more Strawberry Shortcake toys. Awesome!...

ROM Ad from 1979

Battlegrip.com - 24 December, 2014 - 09:29
The Rom comic from Marvel would have never come into existence if not for Parker Brothers taking a stab at creating an action figure. This Rom ad from a 1979 issue of Shogun Warriors may look great, but reportedly sales of the toy were weak. What I find interesting is that sales of 200,000 to 300,000 Rom action figures was...

Battlegrip.com - 24 December, 2014 - 09:20
Here’s one hell of a pricey Clash of the Titans collectible for you. At eBay there’s this Sugar Crisp box that features Clash of the Titans on the box. Also included are ten Clash of the Titans stickers, but the real treat has to be these decent looks at the front and back of the cereal box.
