Mid 80s. Europeans got a full blown story line with their release, as well as a unified color scheme: Red vs. Blue. I don’t have many of these, because the auctions are always in Pounds, which make them hell of expensive in worthless US dollars.
1994. Zoids in America, take 3. In 1994, Kenner released Techno Zoids. In 1995, they were on clearance shelves for as low as a dollar for windups and $3–5 for the big ones. Think about that the next time an Evil Pegasus sells on ebay for $300 or more… and weep!
