Toy Fair Flashback: 1994 Blockbuster
Wow, if you hadn’t known that GI Joe was changing within a year, you would think that a large tank-like vehicle like this would signal a return to form in comparison to previous 90s offerings. Unfortunately, the Blockbuster represents the final large vehicle of the RAH era. The diorama shot here in the Hasbro catalog showcases it nicely. It’s a shame we don’t get this kind of detail in modern marketing pics. Hasbro’s plain white house style is comparatively antiseptic and soulless compared to the olden days of the 80s and 90s. There’s even baking soda–I mean snow–on the tires. Diorama catalog shots, we hardly knew ye.
