Catalog #1:

Mattel Intellivision Catalog from 1982

This is probably the standard catalog you got from Mattel with your games during this period. Reviews of most of their initial line of games, plus some decent reviews of games to come within the next year or so. Personally, I think that Mattel hyped their games better than any other company did during that time. It seems to me that the programmers there at Mattel were more of a family than others elsewhere, and this may have contributed. Of course, we're talking about the Blue Sky Rangers here, too. The manual art is pretty good, too, check it out!
