    Most I've found are incomplete or have a year that often corresponds to the tv show. What do you guys at http://www.clubtokyo.org/ base your dates on?

    Thanks!!

    Wow, I've never seen that database. I could get lost in there!

    This is an interesting question. I think the assumption that the toys were released at around the same time their respective shows or movies came out is a fair one. I'm really not sure how else we'd know of a release date, come to think of it! I guess you'd have to go the the manufacturers' records, but I think those are now pretty spotty, at best.

    The other route would be to look vintage catalogs and see what was planned for release in a given year. There's a lot of stuff that was made that's not in old toy catalogs though, so your results wouldn't be terribly comprehensive....

    I have often joked with a few fellow collectors that we should be carbon-dating toys that are potentially fake vintage toys... Maybe we need to go that route!

    CT has been down for at least a week. Does anyone happen to know what's going on?
