Shockwave Only $9.99 in 1986!
I paid something like $20 when I bought Shockwave in 1985, and I know I’d happily pay that again if I found a G1 Shockwave for sale at that price. (Yes, I have one. I know, it would be silly to buy another. But we all know I would for that price.) If only I had waited until 1986 I could have gotten two for $20, as we see in this November 13, 1986, Newark Advocate newspaper ad from Newark, Ohio. Shockwave is still the best of the G1 toys, and it is always a treat to spot the toy for sale in an old newspaper ad.
