1989 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog

1989 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog

The 1989 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog prompted dealers, retailers, and other vendors to invest in the company’s newest toys. Before the internet, companies like Galoob could not directly advertise their newest toys directly from their offices to customers via live streams.  Instead, they relied on trade shows to strum up interest in their newest toy lines. One of the most reliable ways to promote their toys was by handing out catalogs at the various toy fairs. Thus, dealers, retailers, and vendors had an easy reference to look back on and order toys.

This was no different for Galoob in 1989. As Galoob traveled the country, they handed out this catalog to trade professionals. Readers found information on Galoob’s next set of toy lines within its pages. The catalog included many boys’ toys like Star Trek: The Next Generation and MicroMachines. However, collectors today may notice many differences between the toys photographed and the ones we know today. Full-color prototypes were photographed as the toys were still in production when the catalog was published.

Wheeljack’s Lab proudly presents high-definition scans of the 1989 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog featuring Star Trek: The Next Generation. Even though these catalogs were never released to the general public, they have become sought-after collectibles. So, these scans are a special treat.

About Our Galoob Catalog Scans

To promote their upcoming slate of products, Galoob handed out catalogs to attendees of toy fairs and other events. Each catalog was filled with information about their newest toys, even ones still in development. Thus, they often provided the first looks at action figures, playsets, vehicles, and more from their lines. Thus, they have become valuable and rare collector’s items.

These Galoob Toy Fair Catalogs featured toys from their beloved lines. For instance, the company took players to fantasy worlds with lines like the Infaceables and Blackstar. Then, the Defenders of the Earth featured Flash Gordon and other heroes ready to save the day. Other players could create adventures in space with the Adventures of Galaxy Rangers and Star Trek: The Next Generation toy lines. Galoob’s toys also delivered a smack-down with their WCW World Championship Wrestling line-up. The company also created a line-up of mutant aliens, the Biker Mice from Mars.

Galoob used in-production prototypes in their images, as these catalogs were prepared before the lines were released. This meant that the featured toys often differed from the retail releases. Moreover, toys sometimes appeared only on these catalog pages, as they were canceled or never hit retail store shelves.

While Galoob only handed these booklets out to trade professionals, we have now made them available to all. You can explore the toys featured in these catalogs with our Galoob Toy Fair Catalog Scans. This is a rare treat since catalogs like these have become increasingly difficult to locate with each passing year.
