1987 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalog

1987 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalog

The 1987 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalog celebrated their newest action figures and other toy line-ups. With the tremendous success of G.I. Joe and Transformers, Hasbro continued as the toy industry’s leader in 1987. Moreover, Hasbro had successfully merged with other companies, like Milton Bradley, to become one of the largest toy companies in the United States. Thus, there is little surprise that the 1987 Toy Fair Catalog was one of the company’s largest catalogs to date. With 145 pages filled with their newest products, this catalog offered a wide variety for dealers and retailers.

After the release of the Transformers movie, Hasbro had a brand-new line-up of characters to fill up shelves with. Where the past saw Megatron lead the war against the Autobots, Galvatron now led the assault. Moreover, the line featured a new gimmick, the Headmasters.

The G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero line also continued strong during this year. Even after five years on store shelves, the Joes and Cobra still had new members and vehicles. For instance, Hasbro introduced the Defiant Space Shuttle playset.

Otherwise, Hasbro ushered in new toy lines like the Air Raiders and Visionaries and introduced the Ninja Warriors in this catalog.

About Our Hasbro Catalog Scans

To promote their upcoming slate of products, Hasbro 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. Therefore, they have become valuable and rare collector’s items.

These Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogs featured toys from their beloved lines. For instance, the company was responsible for one of the most popular action figures of all time: G.I. Joe. They also partnered with Takara to bring the Transformers to the Western market. The company also dipped into the fantastical worlds of Air Raiders, Inhumanoids, and Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light. After Hasbro acquired Kenner, they also became the home of toy lines like Jurassic Park and Star Wars.

Hasbro 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 Hasbro 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 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalog Scans. This is a rare treat since catalogs like these have become increasingly difficult to locate with each passing year.
