Re: Vintage 70's / 80's Argos catalogues

Thanks for the replies guys some useful info to think about there, I did also wonder did Argos just simply not realise how popular the toys would have been?, I suppose there's plenty of stories out there of many different companies not foreseeing the success in a franchise and then not preparing for...

Re: Vintage 70's / 80's Argos catalogues

Haha from vintage toy nostalgia to seedy underwear drooling within minutes. :lol:

One little thing I picked up on is how the toy section which we all recognise as always being near the back, was actually at the front of the catalogue up until the late 70's, funny how that changed.

Re: Vintage 70's / 80's Argos catalogues

I don't think my mom used to get the Argos catalogues in the 80's / early 90's, i'm pretty sure it was always Index or Littlewoods, her and my dad used to get it all on credit and literally spend the entire year up until the next xmas paying all the last xmas' stuff off. Always remember the start ba...

Vintage 70's / 80's Argos catalogues

Just found a cool site with PDF's scans of all the 70's, 80's & 90's Argos catalogues and have been having a right nostalgia trip browsing through all the toy pages and looking at prices etc. What puzzles me though is the sheer lack of anything Star Wars? :? I thought there would have been a lot...

Re: £500 seriously !!!

Yeah but he has a He-Man, surely that alone makes this all worth it... :?:

I love how the seller includes it as a Star Wars figure, maybe he thinks it's a Rancor. :lol:

Re: Waterstones diaries

That's really nice! Is it an officially licensed product? With Action Man and He-man adverts and last years Card Factory SW bag, toy collecting is almost mainstream And then not to mention Ready Player One, I feel like society is approaching 'peak 80's nostalgia', it will no doubt be a huge trend o...
