The Toy Collectors Wish Book: Volume One


Embark on the first chapter in the quest to document the golden age of toys! With The Toy Collectors Wish Book series, toy enthusiasts now have a go-to resource to reference toy lines of the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s and more—from those based on blockbuster films, to ones inspired by more obscure television shows.

This photographic guidebook combines the style of the classic holiday wish book with a modern collectors identification guide. Each chapter is thematically dressed with a beautiful signature image featuring the toy line, has individual product photos with detailed parts and accessories breakdowns, and tells the history of each line through the lens of the pop culture events of the time.

The Toy Collectors Wish Book: Volume One includes 128 pages covering Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (1983-1984 LJN); The Adventures of Indiana Jones (1982 Kenner); Clash of the Titans (1980 Mattel); The A-Team (1983-1984 Galoob); RamboThe Force of Freedom (1986 Coleco); Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos (1986 Kenner); and Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (1991 Kenner). 

The Toy Collectors Wish Book will be your go-to reference guide for research, an aspirational wish list for your personal collection or your “collection in a book,” if you love the toys but lack the space.

These ARE the books you're looking for. . .

If you're into the action figures of the late 70s-early 90s, you need this book. There have been plenty of books chronicling the big toy lines of that era, but here the smaller lines get the spotlight. The quality of the book itself is outstanding as well. Can't wait to get Volume 2!
