1985 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog

1985 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog

Dealers and retailers looked forward to receiving the Galoob toy fair catalog, which featured their newest action figures and more, every year. From 1957 to 1998, Galoob entertained millions of children across the nation with their selection of inventive toys. Like most toy companies, Galoob distributed catalogs to trade professionals to encourage them to invest in their products. Thanks to promotional materials, dealers, retailers, vendors, and others in the industry knew which toy lines would be available for the upcoming months. So, it is no surprise that they handed out toy fair dealer catalogs in 1985.

This catalog featured many exciting toy lines that would be appearing on toy shelves from 1985 to 1986. For instance, readers learned about The Infaceables, an imaginative new toy line that could transform into beasts and animals. Then, there were action figures from popular television shows like Inspector Gadget and The A-Team. Galoob also brought Filmation’s The World of Blackstar to life with a large selection of action figures. Finally, there were a few Ghostbusters toys that Galoob presented in this catalog.

While the toys featured in this catalog were still in their prototype phase, they were in a state that illustrated the general look of the finished product. So, while there were some differences, they remain recognizable as the toys we know today.

Wheeljack’s Lab proudly presents high-definition scans of the 1985 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog featuring Blackstar, The Infaceables, and more.

About Our Galoob Catalog Scans

To promote their upcoming slate of products, Galoob handed out catalogs to attendees of toy fairs and other events. Each catalog was filled with information about their newest toys, even ones still in development. Thus, they often provided the first looks at action figures, playsets, vehicles, and more from their lines. Thus, they have become valuable and rare collector’s items.

These Galoob Toy Fair Catalogs featured toys from their beloved lines. For instance, the company took players to fantasy worlds with lines like the Infaceables and Blackstar. Then, the Defenders of the Earth featured Flash Gordon and other heroes ready to save the day. Other players could create adventures in space with the Adventures of Galaxy Rangers and Star Trek: The Next Generation toy lines. Galoob’s toys also delivered a smack-down with their WCW World Championship Wrestling line-up. The company also created a line-up of mutant aliens, the Biker Mice from Mars.

Galoob used in-production prototypes in their images, as these catalogs were prepared before the lines were released. This meant that the featured toys often differed from the retail releases. Moreover, toys sometimes appeared only on these catalog pages, as they were canceled or never hit retail store shelves.

While Galoob only handed these booklets out to trade professionals, we have now made them available to all. You can explore the toys featured in these catalogs with our Galoob Toy Fair Catalog Scans. This is a rare treat since catalogs like these have become increasingly difficult to locate with each passing year.
