Hasbro continued to focus on the Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light toys on page 121 of the 1987 Toy Fair Catalog. Like the successful G.I. Joe and Transformers toy lines before, Hasbro once again presented an animated show via Sunbow Productions. Likewise, they teamed up with Marvel to promote the toys with a short-lived comic book series. So, audiences from all over could enter the land where magic was more powerful than science.

Hasbro promoted #7860, the Holodrome Iron Mountain Playset, the magical mountain where Merklyn and the Mages of the Myst resided. Together, the Visionaries valiantly struggled to reach the top of Iron Mountain and witness Merklyn’s ghostly apparition.
The holographic dome, built into the mountain top, revealed the moving three-dimensional, ghostly image of Merklyn. Kids can actually put their hands through the image. Meanwhile, the built-in, synthesized microphone allowed kids to become the voice of Merklyn, the Holodrome wizard.
The path to the top of the Iron Mountain was filled with treacherous pitfalls and obstacles. It featured two trap doors, hidden mountain caves, slide-action detour caves, a falling rock bridge, and a swing-away rock hazard. The Holodrome also had detachable hover-pods which the Visionaries used to fight their magical battles. Then, the twin mountain towers had rotating gunner stations that could each hold one figure.
