That truly was a great year for toys. Looking at this catalog makes me realise that I actually had a huge portion of these toys featured. I was 4 years old, so I was getting the action figures like Super Joe, 6M$M, and Shogun Warriors, as well as still getting the preschool toys like Fisher Price Adventure People, and even that Oscar the Grouch pull toy! Seeing this also makes me realise......man I was really spoiled! Haha.:embarassed:

After you're done with the 1977, go and check out the 1978. It really goes to show the effect Star Wars had.

Does the Lone Ranger have on a yellow shirt in that pic? Did Gabriel make any variations on the Ranger's clothes (besides the accessory sets)? Or was this shirt from an accessory set?

Sweet catalog!
