1981 Toy Fair Catalog Figure Spread Photo Art
Photo Art represents the pinnacle of prototype material for toy packaging. While photo art was used for virtually every vintage toy packaging, it was also employed for images utilized in the Toy Fair catalogs. This visually stunning photo art was used for the figure spread in the 1981 Toy Fair catalog. As you can see it features all 41 characters on an impressive red background.

Above we see a close-up view of the figure ensemble. It appears the shadowing was entirely hand done for this art. The powerful red background shows off the characters very well for this ESB era piece.
