KLOV forum member Empire found a Montgomery Wards catalog from 1977, and has been uploading scans of the choice bits.
1977 was the tail-end of the dedicated console era, and most of these didn’t have long to live. By the time kids got down to circling their favorite items in the catalog, the Atari VCS would have already been released.
1977 was also just prior to the three and three-fourths inch action figure explosion, started by Takara (in response to higher plastic costs due to the oil crisis), and dominated by Kenner’s Star Wars line.
You just dumb, son. You just dumb.
