Stay out of Brooklyn and don't turn on VH1.
But, seriously...80s fever is not one specific thing that can be defined like that. It is a general cultural trend....and it is still going on.
Just look at all the 80s things that are coming back into fashion.
It is just generalized nostalgia. Not for a specific thing, but for a whole era of pop-culture.
I am saying that Hasbro could easily have produced a half-assed line of "throw-back" toys and done just fine selling them to casual collectors and kitschy hipsters....but they didn't do that, they went the whole nine yards and gave us something which has a legitimate appeal on top of the nostalgia appeal.

Yep, Hasbro Makes some Great Toys for Sure!
A Lot of people complain but I think a lot of times they are just half serious. Nobody is perfect. I do expect quality figures for the money and Hasbro has delivered more than a few classics.
I Love Toys!
I Love Joes!
I Love the "25th Collection"!
