1983 LJN TV Super Stars Catalog- Magnum PI – CHiPs
LJN toys had a long tradition of picking up cool cop shows like SWAT and The Rookies and that tradition carried on in the 1983 LJN catalog where they hoped to continue for toymaker Mego (who shut it’s doors that year) left off by continuing the CHiPs line. However, it’s not likely any LJN branded CHiPs merchandise was ever produced, as the series ended it’s six year run that year and the store shelves had ample quantity of the Mego products.
Also offered this year was Magnum PI using what appears to be a retooled Mego Dukes of Hazzard body. While I’ve never seen any LJN branded chips figures, the Magnum playset is now a sought-after collectible. The carded figure has never been seen on the collectors market and I doubt it was produced.
