Case in point:
Thanks to good friend of Toyfinity Mark Bellomo, I received an unused Robo Force fan club packet from the 1980s. The full contents will pop up here in posts from time to time, but today's information comes courtesy of the first (and only) issue of the Robo Force Magazine, which was included in the membership packet.
Part magazine about robots, part propaganda packet for Ideal Toy Company, it marks the first and only time I have seen a print ad for Manglors...
The chicken or the egg? Nope - it was a Manglor!
I had this magazine as a kid, and I don't remember this ad, but now we can all enjoy it again. I love the design work and the way it spotlights Manglodemon. It is my hope that by this time next year, we'll all have the ability to play with a brand-new Manglodemon! For now though, let's enjoy these classic examples of advertising.
