Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Millenium Falcon from 1997!

If you think anything screams classic Star Wars more than the Millenium Falcon, you are incorrect. it's the location where Luke Skywalker took his initial steps on the path of becoming a Jedi Knight, and the location where Princess Leia and Han Solo shared a first kiss before being cockblocked by C3PO. It's the ship …

My Christmas Haul 2020!

As I had predicted, I didn't manage to get any other posts done between my last and this one, as I've been very busy quaffing beer and shovelling festive food into my mouth, and not doing a whole lot of much else. I have managed to tear myself away from eating and drinking for a …

Mattel Toy Story 2 Micro Movers! Andy’s Roamin’ Room Playset!

Anyone who has visited this site somewhat regularly will know that as a kid I loved micro playsets. Mighty Max, Pokemon, Star Wars Micro Machines, I couldn't get enough of the teeny little scenes all contained within a colourful, interesting plastic case for easy transportation. There was one micro playset that I yearned for desperately, …

SEGA & Tyco Pocket Power Glo-Bones Skeleton Action Figure, from 1988!

Before Sega had become a serious competitor to Nintendo in the early '90s with the release of the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) console and popular mascot Sonic the Hedgehog, it was known for its success within video game arcades worldwide.

Imperial Godzilla and King Kong Action Figures from 1985!

Having been on a bit of creature feature binge lately, I thought it only fair that I mention some of the other monsters made by Imperial Toys, based on characters that are much larger than the classic Universal Monsters characters I covered yesterday. So here's the hairy Eighth Wonder of the World, and the irradiated …

Imperial “Classic Movie Monster” Series Action Figures from 1986!

If ever there was a series of action figures that I'd encounter again and again as a kid, it would have be Imperial's Classic Movie Monsters line. Imperial Toys were known predominantly for their cheap dinosaur figures, but did have a few licensed products like these toys based on Universal's iconic monsters, as well as …

It's October, the month of Halloween, and that means an obligatory Mighty Max post! So I recently wrote an article on Mighty Max for an upcoming toy edition of Fusion Magazine, and whilst I was writing it I decided to have a look at how much Mighty Max toys were going on eBay lately. And …

Pickups! Newly Acquired Video Games and Interesting things! July-September 2020

  Well I quite enjoyed documenting my pickups from April-June, so I thought it would definitely be something I try and keep up with. I had quite a few new acquisitions lately, but it's really only because I had a bit of a clear out of things in the attic, and sold a few things …

My Star Wars Funko “Japanese Hikari” Sofubi Figure Collection!

I've made it quite clear in previous posts about my dislike of Funko Pop figures. The small bodied, big headed toys with beady black eyes, which seemingly populate everywhere from comic book stores to sections in my local supermarket.Yet Funko I have no real qualms with. They are one of the few major toy companies …
