These great little colour digests were likely distributed in newspapers and at retail locations, hoping to load children’s Christmas wishlists with Mattel products. It’s a great smattering of hot toys of the day from the classic Barbie and Hot Wheels to 70’s phenoms Pulsar and the Sweathogs, this booklet is a nice cruise down memory lane.

I still want a Pulsar for Christmas…..

    Dude! The ‘Flying Aces’! I had totally been trying to remember what those were called. Thanks for posting that.

    Also: I wonder if anyone who received a Sweathog’s action figure for Xmas then used him as a villain/sidekick/cannon fodder with GI Joes…

    Actually, I had the Horshack figure, and pretended he was Doctor Who (Tom Baker). He even came with a scarf!

    Sad to say, not many Pulsars survive today. His lungs and heart dry rotted, and his blood coagulated. I’ve seen a few at local antique stores, but all suffered the same fate.

    jfstan- Horshack as Dr. Who. Sweet!

    Just watched the Blackadder with Tom Baker as Capt. Rum last night, in fact.
