Hasbro stock has been dropping steadily. large items like this are unlikely.

The Tomahawk for $16.99
The Night Raven for $22.99
I remember feeling like the luckiest kid in the neighborhood getting both of those for X-mas one year because they were at the time pretty expensive. Not to mention fairly large toys. That night Raven is a big solid nicely made toy. I mean the Target exclusive battle pack is 63 bucks today and that battle pack is not even close to the size or coolness of the Night Raven. I would have never guessed that those two toys retailed so cheap at the time. Inflation is a B%$ch.
The night raven is the same size as the new Stars Wars vehicles that retail today for over 100 bucks.

According to this:
The Inflation Calculator
A Flag would cost:
What cost $100.00 in 1985 would cost $190.30 in 2007.
Also, if you were to buy exactly the same products in 2007 and 1985,
they would cost you $100.00 and $52.14 respectively.

In Holland I think the Tomahawk was close to Fl. 100 which was around $50.
That was the #1 Joe vehicle I always wanted!
A Conquest X-30 was the 2nd and Night Raven the 3rd, Skystriker 4th.
I really wish we will see them all released again in the Modern Era line!!
I spend hours upon hours looking at toy catalogs when I was a kid.
I'm planning to scan everything I'll find on my attic sorting cleanup.
I have a huge dutch G.I. Joe 1986? poster catalog scanned and somewhere stored on cd. When I find it, I'll resize it to a smaller readable size and post it here on the tank.
If anyone has the standard US G.I.Joe toy catalogs from 1982, 1983 & 1984 for sale,
I'll gladly buy them!
Thanks again SnakeEater for the catalogs from 1985-1990

if they came out with one I would buy 1 to open and 1 to store, no matter what the price was!

I have been wondering, the Flagg appears in the background art of the SHARC and the X-30 packaging, so I was hopeing that maby this meant that they were at least considering releasing it.

Those prices for the Conquest and Night Raven are also over-priced Sears items. The Conquest was actually only $9.99 and the Night Raven was $16.99 at places like TRU and Gemco back then.
