Air Raiders Advertising, Part 2

Continuing the posting of old advertisements for the Air Raiders (see here), here’s a few from the The Des Moines Register, Chicago Tribune, and The Times out of Shreveport, Louisiana. The Times is first, dated November 18, 1987, and I’m amused that they lumped a Cobra Sea Ray from GI Joe in the space provided.…… Continue reading Air Raiders Advertising, Part 2

More Air Raiders Advertising

I posted a few old newspaper ads for Air Raiders toys recently (here), so here’s a few more!

Most pictures I find online are low resolution, half-covered and/or the stickers are curled and folded. So I’m updating my original idea. I’m still going to try and have…… Continue reading Stickers Archive
