Mattel Big Jim Repro Art Book

Reproduction is was a series of black and white line drawings of toy products provided to vendors for newspaper advertisements. It is something of a lost artform in this digital age and something I both admire and collect.

I've compiled a gallery of repro art for Mattel's 1975 Big Jim line, as I'm pretty fond of the guy. It's a great look at the whole assortment for that year, including the birth of the P.A.C.K!

Illustration seems to be a lost art. Although by the looks of Warpath's makeup, maybe that's not 100% bad. ;)
