I'm currently working on the 1978 Fisher Price Catalog, it's large so it's taking a some time. One of the things I love about any old toy catalog are the occasional shot of a store display, they're usually pretty biased to one thing but they give a little look of what was. I thought I'd share these today and give a taste of what's to come.
Above is a display of individual Adventure Team figures, I don't think I ever got individual figures as a kid but I remember flicking through this rack to see all of the characters.
An entire display of Daredevil Sky Divers, a skydiver that really worked. I got one for Easter 1979, and bought one for my son last year.
The aisle of adventure, I don't think I ever saw a store this well stocked with Adventure People, I think I'd remember that.
Update: Another article I wrote for Topless Robot is up today, it's called the Top Ten Most Needless Action Figures and it's a little bit of nonsense about generic add on action figures, hope you enjoy.
