An Obligatory Mighty Max Post! ‘Kingdom of Gargantua/Tangles With the Ape King’ Playset!

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 …

Tomy’s Pokémon Seafoam Islands (双子島) ‘Polly Pocket’ Micro Playset!

What feels like a lifetime ago, I reviewed a Polly-Pocket-esque Pokémon Micro Playset based around Viridian Forest, the bug-infested woodlands linking Pewter City and Viridian City. I thought I'd also reviewed another set containing Charmander and Eevee but apparently not. Anyway, here's another recent Pokémon micro playset pickup, dating back to the late '90s or …

Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Rebel Base Playset, 1997!

Did any of you ever receive a birthday present or toy when you were a kid, that you hadn't circled in the Argos or Index catalogue, so subsequently it wasn't on your wish list, and you were initially puzzled as to just what the item was? I did. And then after a while it became …

Exciting Candy Packages from Friends in Japan!

My girlfriend and I were due to fly to Tokyo in April. It had been a trip we had seemingly been saving for forever, and was something we were both looking forward to. With my love of  Japanese video games and shows like Pokemon, Japan had always seemed exciting to me, and getting to visit …

Pickups! Newly Acquired Video Games and Interesting things! April-June 2020

In my previous post, I said I was going to cover a few different things on this site. One of the new things I'd like to do is post about new games or cool things that I've acquired over a period of time. I love looking back at things like that, so this feels like …

Me Moaning about The Forgotten Starship, and the Future of this Site

So for the past year or so, my enthusiasm towards this site has kind of waned somewhat. It's not a quick process, writing a post, trying to make it entertaining and informative, taking pictures, uploading pictures- the whole process will usually take me a good few hours. And then I only get a few clicks …

Disney Theme Park Exclusive Indiana Jones Micro Figures and Vehicles from 2000!

I've always thought Indiana Jones was neat, ever since I was a small kid, but my introduction to the whip-swinging archaeologist was actually not  the movies, but from a comic book "annual" of The Temple of Doom that I'd picked up from a car boot sale in Wales. This method of being introduced to existing …

Bandai Final Fantasy VII “Keshi” Mini-figures, 1997!

Owing to the fact that the best part of $50 left my bank account the other day and went to WordPress for hosting my site, it's probably time that I actually did something with it. I've been playing the Final Fantasy VII remake lately, and finished it the day before yesterday. It was alright. I …
