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 cover the Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Lights toys on page 89 of the 1988 Toy Fair Catalog. Like their hit toy lines before: G.I. Joe and Transformers, Hasbro implemented a multi-media strategy to promote their new toy line. Thus, the Visionaries appeared in a short-lived Marvel series. They also appeared in a cartoon series that Sunbow created without any assistance from Marvel Productions.

Here, Hasbro presented number 7815, the Spectral Knights Joust. The heavily armored Spectral Knights Joust lunged into battle, bashing everything that crossed its path. Any Spectral Knight driver was protected by its high-powered dual-image holographic cycle/shield. Meanwhile, players activated the side-mounted claw to seize unsuspecting enemy warriors. This vehicle also included positionable spiked armor plates and a rear-mounted pretend laser gun. Furthermore, it had room for one figure, which was sold separately.
Next, they advertised number 7816, the Darkling Lords Crossbow. Streaking across the sky, the Darkling Lords Crossbow shot down enemy battle crafts. Its positionable side struts and wings could be arched back to shoot out an elusive scout drone. Then, a horrifying, 3-D, holographic creature seemingly blasted Spectral Knights with magical armor-piercing arrows. This vehicle came with 2 poseable pretend laser blasters. It also had room for 1 figure, sold separately.
