1988 Coleco Toy Fair Catalog – Page 51 – Starcom


Explore the pages of the rare 1988 Coleco Toy Fair Catalog with our high-definition scans. Sadly, Coleco closed its doors in 1989. So, this was one of the final catalogs that they ever handed out to dealers, vendors, and other trade professionals. Even though this was one of Coleco’s final Toy Fair Catalogs, it still had treasures to find. For instance, it featured the exciting Starcom line of action figures and vehicles.

Coleco once again featured the Starcom toy line, which they introduced in 1987, within the pages of the 1988      Toy Fair Catalog. In the 21st century, the heroic men of Starcom fought for freedom against the evil Shadow Force. 54This action-packed range of space-age toys combined the wonders of today’s technology with the futuristic designs of tomorrow. Each vehicle featured Power Deploy action, Motorized and Spring-Action operations that moved by themselves at the touch of a button. Meanwhile, the action figures featured Magna Lock using the power of magnets that allowed them to defy gravity.
