Hasbro continued to promote their hit G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toys on page 143 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.

Here, Hasbro presented #6003, the Cobra Terror Drome with Firebat, a haunted fortress that housed the most deadly of Cobras’ arsenal, the Firebat. This playset included the Cobra pilot, A.V.A.C., with a personal combat command file card. Meanwhile, the secret launch mechanism activated silo doors, and the elevator raised Firebat for launch. Then, the upper and lower levels included computer stations, fuel stations, gun ports, and an enemy holding area. There were even eight lower-level rooms that featured hinged doors. Finally, the Firebat came complete with articulated wings and an opening canopy.
