From 1992: Another STARLOG MAGAZINE House Ad for their burgeoning line of official movie magazine tie-in titles.
One of the conclusions that we can draw from these ads is that many of these mags must have been very slow sellers once the initial hoopla around the movie has past. Some of them had clearly been sitting in the Starlog warehouse (which eventually burned down... making these a lot rarer now) for a good few years.
Its good to se that their obsession with all things Stallone even stretched as far as notorious Cannon clunker OVER THE TOP: a gripping expose into the brutal world of championship level arm wrestling. So convincing were Cannon's hucksters that someone even produced a range of action figures! Suckers.
Its also clear that Starlog steered clear of TV titles (except the Trek franchise) except for a very few turn of the Eighties dalliances with the small screen. It would have been neat to see Starlog devote a one-shot to the decade's action shows. Presumably they felt that the fortunes of a TV show can change so fast that they didn't represent a safe bet.

maybe Starlog cut a deal with them.
