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 54 featured 1351, the Shadow Vampire, the enemy V.T.O.L. fighter. The powerfully armed, highly maneuverable Vertical Take-Off and Landing Fighter had swiveling engines, motorized recoil-action cannons and spring-action canopies.
Then, Coleco presented 1344, the Shadow Blast Track, an enemy tank and transport. Shadow Force’s Shadow Blast Track was the super powerful land tank/transport cruiser for the Invasion ground army. At the touch of a button, the motorized Dual Power Deploy was engaged. Then, the Shadow Blast Track closed to form an armored shell as the THUD cannon turret elevated, providing the gunner with an improved firing angle.
Finally, they advertised 1352, the SF/B Starhawk, the powerful Strategic Fighter/Bomber of Star Wing, Starcom’s mighty air and space fleet. Players could select a crew member of their choice from any of Starcom’s Star Wing Action Figures to pilot the SF/B Starhawk on long-range strategic missions. Laser and railgun weaponry and the firepower of its Teraforce Missile Bombs made it the invincible combat fighter of Starcom.
