Christmas Gifts '85

Posted by asterphage 
The Montgomery Ward 1985 Christmas catalog

courtesy of OrangeSlime.com

The site actually has a ton of catalogs in their catalog section, but this one is really exceptional for its cover photo, and for the Tomy Robots section.

I haven't had time to go through all these catalog scans yet, so let me know if you guys find anything else equally precious.

Y'know, I always wanted any one of those various Tomy r/c robots! I'm sure they totally sucked...but the commercials made me wild! :P

G.I. Joe had a seven and a half foot long Aircraft carrier play-set in 1985 for $125...I wonder what it goes for now?

Apparently the Omnibots were the creme-de-la-creme back in the 1980s and pretty sought after. Except that AFAIK you need a MSX-computer to program some of them...
