The majority of the toys were mid late 80s. By the 90's they were an afterthought.

Australia was probably a bit behind the times back then. They were still in full force during the early to mid 90s here

I watched GI Joe cartoons around like 1994-1995, but eventually they faded away. I think because my name was in the title I liked it a lot more than other kids at that time. haha

What was cool about toys in the 80s is that they actually had some for the kids that were dumb and couldn't transform a transformer for shit, often breaking it and pissing off their parents who just dropped $20 on a toy. For these kids, they had Battle Beasts. Very simple paper/rock/scissors concept for them so that they knew how to play with the toys:

Wood beats water
Water beats fire
Fire beats wood
