1988 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalog – Page 105 – G.I. Joe


We invite you to explore the pages of the 1988 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalog, which featured Hasbro’s greatest hits from the 1980s. For instance, readers had the chance to examine the latest Pretenders from the Transformers line. G.I. Joe also continued in this catalog. Beyond those two lines, Hasbro featured several new and interesting toy lines, like the Visionaries.

Hasbro continued to feature their hit G.I. Joe toys on page 105 of the 1988 Toy Fair Catalog. While this toy line almost disappeared for good after the Vietnam War, it returned with a vengeance in the 1980s. Thanks to a collaboration with Marvel, Hasbro reinvented the G.I. Joes, giving them a new lease on life. Rather than just representing the armed forces, the Joes now were an elite team that fought against the vile forces of Cobra.

Then, there was a removable engine cover, rotating machine gun, rolling wheels, positionable missile rack, and tow hook.

Next, there was number 6004, the G.I. Joe R/C Crossfire. This was G.I. Joe’s most advanced assault jeep that patrolled the desert for Cobra scout units.
