    First off, I found these on tfarchive.com, my favorite catalogue from the bygone days of yore, I have a copy myself, but its ruined with punchholes. The shops were crap for the toys around where I live and we never got half of whats in here, but I spent long hours looking over this when I was a chap. Hope you enjoy it too. Note there are alot of prototypes in this, check out Bruticus! I hope its cool to post this here.

    With Overlord in the comics recently, and the likes of Doublepunch and Slicer coming up at Botcon this year I thought it might be of interest.

    Also there was a shorter booklet released the next year and if anyone has a scan of that could they let me know please.

    Wow... Looking at this and thinking back, it's kinda cool how many of these guys I actually owned as a kid. Sure brings back a lot of memories... Thanks for posting!

    I remember owning those pamphlets that had all the Euro G1 Pretenders, but they're long gone sadly.

    I never knew some of that action master stuff even existed.

    Good thing I don't collect it.

    I had this booklet, back in the day. I still remember the excitement of picking it up at a small toyshop. I was thrilled with the G1 re-releases, but very disappointed with the direction of most of the new stuff. Micromasters and actionmasters didn't do it for me.

    Around that period I got Tracks, Onslaught, Springer, and ... Overlord.

    I really wanted the Motorvators, but it was not to be.

    Cheers for having a look folks. Aye this book was magic for me, I love the spread of toy in it, ranging from the cars to the action masters, very broad.

    Bumblethumper, you lucky basterd, I got Overlord eventually, but missing most of his parts. I remember the box was massive in the shop.

    Aye the Action Masters weren't up to much, but I loved my Armoured Convoy. Most of them in this catalogue look like prototypes, I'd love if Shockwave had looked like he does in this.

    I love these!
    You got me thinking, I'll post pics of where my Euro collection is at tonight.
    I'm only missing Pyro and Clench, and I'm done! :D

    It'd be nice to see that G1-Junkie.

    Yup, they were all released here, I have Gripper meself, though they were released without the parts needed to combine for whatever reason, shame.

    I've been doing a look around tonight for other promotional stuff, but can't seem to find the booklet that came the year after, it has Rotorstorm on the cover and was much shorter.
