What could you get for Halloween in 1980 at Toys R Us?

In this ad you can see a great selection of 1980s costumes, including Snoopy and Yoda. I am not sure about the poses that Yoda and Snoopy are striking, they both have their left arm at weird angles.

What else do they got…. Oh the Clacking Skull looks fun as do all the make-up kits. Of course my favorite and the must have accessory for 1980 was the Hobo Cigar, which is a bargain at 38 cents.
