With Return of the Jedi being released on May 25, 1983 it only makes sense that it would have been on the hot toy items list in the Sears Wish Book for that year. Even so I was totally amazed at just how many items and toys were available that year…so much so that I cannot remotely squeeze them into this single post.
So expect more over the weekend showcasing the clothes, stuffed animals, and various collectibles that were part of the Return of the Jedi line. It wasn’t just Jabba the Hutt overseeing his Droid Dungeon. You also could have asked for the Sears Exclusive, the Imperial Cruiser or even the Imperial Attack Base!
As I’ve mentioned before on the site I totally wanted that Y-Wing fighter for the longest time…it would take 31 years before I finally got my hands on one though. You could have set your heart on the AT-ST or the Imperial TIE Fighter or even the Speeder Bike if you needed to aim smaller.
Naturally there was a large selection of action figures available for order!
With all of those figures you surely needed an easy way to carry them around from your house to your Grandparents, thankfully you had the option of the awesome C-3PO carrying case and another Sears Exclusive…the Space Case!
While I admit that these neat looking Smurf pajamas that were offered in the 1985 Sears Wishbook are just Smurfy…it’s those hats the kids are wearing that make me want to Smurf back in time and snatch them off their heads for my own!
But it wasn’t just Smurf pajamas that were up for grabs from the 1985 Wish Book, not by a long shot, you also had My Little Pony and the Cabbage Patch Kids!
Or you could go with the correct choice and choose these awesome Optimus Prime and Megatron blanket Pajamas.
The Holidays are upon once again, whether we are ready for it or not. That is why I’m thankful I can take a moment from the frantic department store shopping for loved ones to peruse the collection of Sears Wish Books at the Arkadia Retrocade.
In particular when the catalog displays an awesome assortment of Masters of the Universe toys, ranging from individual figures to vehicles and other forms of transportation across Eternia to the likes of Castle Grayskull, Snake Mountain, and the Fright Zone!
