Article: Hasbro German Catalog from 1989
In the 1980's, it was common practice for toy companies to give out catalogs of their products featuring photography and product descriptions. These sometimes took the form of big, heavy books or binders and in some cases they were smaller booklets. In 1989 Hasbro Germany handed out booklets focusing on their 1989 product line. I was fortunate enough to purchase one of these catalogs from online retailer Wheeljack's Lab recently. Check out the scans and translations via Google Translate below!
