I have a few I noticed (and never noticed before) and always just loved them . anyone know how many were made Kenner wise . is there a complete set out there with pictures . figured it would be a cool little side focus for me as most only go for a few bucks .

Ask Stefan (Walkie) as he has a paperwork focus and probably knows the answer to this. If you just stick to Kenner in the USA then the number probably isnt that many, but if you expand out to include foreign, I bet each licensee has at least one catalog of their own and probably most have multiple ones.

Go for it Bill, paperwork stuff is great. I have a fair few in store/in pack cats and posters but ads are more my main thing these days.

Your best reference is the SWCA:

Bill, did you decide to collect catalogs?  I want some Ledy ones myself someday.

From the swca link above it looks like there were only two pack in type.

Bill, feel free to drop me a PM. The selection currently documented anywhere on the net is by far incomplete, trust me Wink

I haven't gotten run to adding my catalogues to my limelight yet but when I do I will share with the community ALL the unique versions of each one, as several have not just 1 or 2 variants !!

So there are catalog differences?  If one were to collect only based on the covers how many are there?  If the contents inside the covers are different then how many?  

I only want lili Ledy pack in style catalogs, how many of those type are there? From the swca it looked like only two, are there others?

Bill - great start to the run cheers
Including all the foreign to US cats I can well believe there are dozens and dozens out there to collect, especially if you add print variations like Stef mentioned and euro versions with the same covers but different language.
Some catalogues double as posters, and these are also cool to collect alongside the regular booklet-style ones. I can't wait to see what Stef puts together bounce
