UK Argos Catalogues From 1984/1985 Advertising Star Wars Toys

For those who are not familiar with Argos, it is a UK store that is generally situated on the high street and in town/city centres.  Here's the thing, even though they have stores, generally nothing is on display.  Instead you walk in and order your item from a catalogue, find the item you want in the rather large book, write down the item number and take your ticket to the till.  Within a few minutes your item will appear on a conveyor belt from the depths of the store room.  I always imagined the store room to be like the end scene from Raiders Of The Lost Ark with one man in a vast room filled with wooden boxes.

Anyway I thought you would like to see the Star Wars pages from the 1984 and 1985 catalogues.  Many kids right across the land would use the Argos catalogue to choose their favourite toys and hopefully what would be under the christmas tree.  I'm no exception.  At-At for £29.99?  Yes please.
