That website isn't loading for me.

But, anyway, 80's toys are the new 70's toys. Expect to continue to see a resurgence in toys from that era, and Masters of the Universe was a big time toy in the 80's. I had an original Castle Grayskull and the last time I saw it, it was in a big snow pile out in the back yard when I was 10-11 years old.

I used to have one of those. I can maybe see a collector paying $250 for an original in good condition, but can't imagine why anyone would pay that much for a new production.

@90mcg112: Yeah I suspected something was up when I saw reissued "vintage" Strawberry Shortcake dolls in the toy aisle.

Nope, not for a remake. My husband got the version they were putting out in the early 2000's from his college roomie as a gag gift. It's still at the in-laws place, so the kiddo plays with that and some vintage rock lords when we visit.

we never had one but my neighbor did and it was awesome. Would I play with it if the kids in my life had one? Hell yeah. Would I pay $250 to make that happen? No way. But now you got me thinking about how I want to stock up their toy collection with better toys for me to play with since all they want to do when I'm around is have me play with their toys with them. And who can blame them - I'm super fun :)

Ummmmm......no. That's crazy.

Considering you can get an original for about $50 on EBay, no.
