Catalogues containing Rock Lords

In the 80es, most toy retailers gave away catalogues and "wishbooks" to promote their items. The figures were most of the time displayed in a very beautiful and appetizing way to generate demand for them amongst children. This was also the case for Rock Lords Action Figures, of course. Here are some examples of toy shop catalogues depicting offers for Rock Lords toys.

USA : Tonka Wishbook by Crest Toothpaste

Picture from the "Tonka Wishbook by Crest Toothpaste" from the USA. Sadly the owner only gave me a poor scan, so I cannot tell much about what's told on the page. Basically there are all the series 1 and 2 Rock Lords, the Rock Pot vehicle and the first series of narlies. The Marbles pictured seems to have a strange colour scheme, that however comes much closer to real "marbles", very cool (this is the same picture used in the TONKA 1986 Catalogue and the Australian promo comic, containing many prototype Rock Lords figures).

One of the pamphlets included in the portfolio is exclusively dedicated to the Rock Lords.


SEARS Wishbook 1986

The Sears Wishbook was probably the bible of every 80ies US kid. The Rock Lords also got a tiny slot in that big catalogue of children's dreams in the 1986 edition.
