Time has flown by and I can hardly been it's been three months since my last post covering my tri-monthly pickups. Anyway, straight into it! DVDs! Ever the fan of B-movies, I gladly added these gems into my collection recently. I'm quite sure I've seen some of them before, but after a while, these kind …

Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Death Star Playset from 1996!

A little while back I covered the Star Wars Action Fleet Rebel Base Playset, and it's about time I did the same for the Empire's base. Behold, the Death Star! Like the Rebel Base, the box features a kickass piece of art from legendary concept artist Ralph McQuarrie. I've said it before on this site, …

Even More Playmates Toys 6″ Kaiju Action Figures! Godzilla VS Kong!

There's no denying that many were put off by Playmates attempts at bringing awesome Godzilla/monster figures to toy aisles, what with some of the odd design choices covered in my last post. That said, as soon as images of their toys based on the upcoming Godzilla VS Kong were revealed, I was intrigued. There was …

Playmates Toys, 6″ Kaiju Action Figures! Shin Godzilla, Kong, Space Godzilla, Gigan and Destoroyah!

Yesterday it was announced that the Godzilla vs Kong movie will be coming out in March. I'm not overly excited about this information, mainly because it is supposed to be being shown on a HBO channel which doesn't exist here in the UK, and if I'm not going to get to see it in the …

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, …

Pickups! Newly Acquired Video Games and Interesting things! October-December 2020

It's been a little while since my last post, and I do plan on writing about something more festive than just a pickups post. But for now, here are some of things I've picked up since October! It's not quite as a varied or long list as the previous posts, as I've been concentrating on …

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. Whilst few could deny Sega's contributions to video gaming, it was less known for its …

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 …
