This Week In 1985 Takara Toys (My Little Pony)

So this happened this past week...

If you're familiar with Takara 1985 My Little Pony toys you are probably saying yeah, and? But to many this pretty high price may be a bit of a shock. The fact is that anything produced for Japan's domestic market in 1985 is seriously difficult to obtain now. The levels at which these items were made was severely lowered due to Takara's pulling so much of it's resources to churn out Transformers for Hasbro. And with the Takara original Pony brand not lasting too long you get even less product made in 1985-86, which in turn means less product lingering around here 30 years later.

It's really sad, the Takara My Little Pony design is really cute, far more so than the original Hasbro doll IMHO. As it stands, without a re-issue, the product will continue to sell for high amounts, and continue to be sought after due to it's rarity. And of course its charm.
