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 132 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.
Hasbro promoted #6041, the Cobra Stun, a fast attack, a high-speed sentry that hastened Cobra soldiers to their attack position. This vehicle included a Cobra driver, MOTOR VIPER, with a personal combat command file card. In battle mode, the twin positionable cockpits split. Meanwhile, the firing positions elevated so the laser-power cannons could be fired from any position.
Then, they presented #6061, Sgt. Slaughter with Triple “T”. Most boots would rather dive for apples in the grease trap than cross the Sarge. However, his troops could always count on him and his Triple-T when the going got rough. Sgt. Slaughter came with a personalized combat command file card. The specially designed tracked tank had two side-mounted guns, removable missiles, and an engine cover.
