-BA- Beastformers Archeology Topic


Video French Toy Fair 1987
Les Dragonautes (French Battle Beasts) at the HASBRO stand/booth during the French salon du jouet (Toy Fair) of 1987. 


As some of you might now a team of LRG members and Battle Beasts collectors out here have formed a Beastformers Archeology team in order to get some of the original stories clarified. At the moment we're still working hard on topics related to the header of Promotion and Advertisment but during our research we bumped into this interesting video. Showing a multitude of 80's toylines during that particular Toy Fair back in 1987, some unique footage imho;  



(Battle Beasts footage at 5:27 - 5:41)


Most probably this footage was taken during the French Toy Fair of February 1987 held in Cannes which was an International 5 day Toy Fair during which HASBRO was present to promote some of the new toylines to be released later that year.


If you have more info related to this video please let us know and/or join the discussion by leaving a reply below. All info is welcome.


(Most likely we have found the Les Dragonaute pages from the actual catalogue of HASBRO '87 which was handed out during this Toy Fair)

It was odd that BB got just a brief mention, but it was cool to go back to when these toys were new again! Especially loved the G.I. Joe part.
I could watch stuff like this all day, thanks for posting!

What's a good french BB forum that you use? I always love stalking sites in languages that can only be conveyed to me by Google Translate :D
