The only classic toy line missing? The Transformers, because they unfortunately didn't reach North America until 1984, two years after this catalogue was printed. But there are still pages and pages of classic toys you've probably forgotten that make up for their absence. [Flickr via Raiders of the Lost Tumblr via BoingBoing]
