1982 Fleetwood Toys Catalog is very modest, a group of loose-leaf copies stapled together.
CHiPs was the major player for 1982, Fleetwood managed to get a lot of mileage out of the motorcycle cop goodness.
While Legend of the Lone Ranger wasn’t a box office success, the character itself still sold toys. Fleetwood was able to create a variety of toys thanks to the abundant tooling available in Hong Kong for wild west toys.
The adventures of Colt Seavers made for some terrific rack toy potential. The Fall Guy license allowed Fleetwood to sell anything.
The Topps Wacky Trucks are amazing and I want a set.
