Flipping Childhood Toys: Your Old Transformers May Be Worth Thousands of Dollars

Flipping Your Childhood Toys Vol #1: Your Old Transformers May Be Worth Thousands of Dollars When #Hasbro, Inc. launched the Transformers franchise in 1984 by rebranding a line of transforming mecha from the Takara’s Diaclone & Microman toylines.   They did not fully realize how big the Transformer brand would become, and that it would successfully expanded into animation, movies, games and become a live action film juggernaut.  I can actually see #Elon #Musk some day making a real functioning transformer to promote #Tesla – shout out to Elon to do this it would be awesome.
