It’s nearly Christmas so let’s look at old catalogue pages and press adverts with toys on them (the seventies)

I never knew that there was a Space 1999 playset (but this is from an American Catalogue so maybe not in the UK?) but putting that relevation to one side let’s not forget – and indeed, let us celebrate) the fact that Space 1999 had one of the best intro sequences and music of any TV show ever;

and then we have an advert for the Waddingtons UK board game ‘Frankenstein’;

The Space 1999 image comes courtesy of an interesting blog with lots of other action figure related posts;
