1988 Coleco Toy Fair Catalog – Page 52 – 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.

Page 52 featured multiple Starcom toys like 1321, the Laser R.A.T. (Rapid Assault Tracker). At the touch of a button, the motorized Power Deploy changed this cargo module into a Rapid Assault Tracker with Extendable Axles.

Next, Coleco promoted 1322, the M-6 Railgunner, a ground attack vehicle. The motorized Power Deploy on this cargo module could turn it into a Ground Attack Vehicle at the touch of a button. This vehicle was equipped with Extendable Axles and a Gunner’s Jump Seat.

Then, there was 1323, the Shadow Invader, a rapid strike vehicle. In a matter of seconds, this closed cargo module could become a Rapid Strike Vehicle with a Powerful High-Speed Pullback Motor. It contained a Power Deploy Cannon, Swing-Out Wheel Struts, and Slide-Out Guns.

Finally, they advertised 1324, the Missile Fox, a tactical launching vehicle. This Missile Fox was a missile-armed, ground-to-air attack vehicle of the Astro Marines. In its transport mode, it closed to a standard cargo pod size that could be carried by most Starcom vehicles. However, at the touch of a button, it opened to deploy a launch pad, cannons, guns, and a bay area to carry troops into battle.
