1987 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalog – Page 125 – G.I. Joe

Begin your journey through the 1987 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalog, which highlighted the massive success of G.I. Joe and Transformers in the 80s. This catalog includes exciting previews of the 1987 line-up. So, continue exploring to see some of the first previews that retailers saw of the newest action figures.

Hasbro continued to promote their hit G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toys on page 125 of the 1987 Toy Fair Catalog. At the beginning of the decade, the G.I. Joe toy line was effectively a dead franchise, for Hasbro had temporarily shelved the line. However, with the persistence of an executive and the assistance of Marvel, G.I. Joe received a facelift to become Real American Heroes. With both comics and a cartoon show supporting the line, it became one of Hasbro’s greatest hits during the decade.
