Equipment: The 1980s are Alive and Well in the Newest Hake’s Toy Auction

As Stranger Things has proven, everyone loves the 1980s, even those who weren’t alive to see it – the music, the movies and especially the toys. With many of the 1980s’ top action figure lines alive and well in their modern iterations (and even some retro-styled ones), demand for the originals has not wavered, and a current auction has dozens of old-school action figures on the block for a good amount of cash.

The top bid in Hake’s Auctions’ current offerings goes to a Transformers Optimus Prime from 1984’s Series 1, in-box, AFA-graded 80. It currently has a bid of $6,050, and is expected to go for north of $10,000.
