Star Wars Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon from 2008!

My girlfriend tolerates a lot of the shit that I buy. Our space is full of boxes of Mighty Max, Monster in my Pocket, Power Rangers etc, as well as a small library of video games I keep adding to, for consoles spanning the past forty years. But then very occasionally there are things I …

RPGs! My Love of Final Fantasy and Discovering Dragon Quest!

  First post in a looooong time. As always, life gets in the way of being able to keep up on here. Today I'm just going to babble about video games for a bit. Don't expect this to be a review or anything, it's more of an acknowledgment than a review of a specific game. …

UK Super Mario Bros Christmas Cracker toys from 1993!

It was apparently Mario day a couple of days ago, being March 10th or Mar10. Although fashionably late as always, I figured I'd use the opportunity to talk about some extremely obscure Super Mario Bros product that has been nearly lost to time. Before that, I should probably explain to some people what a 'Christmas …

Robocop 1993 Action Figure! Fallacious or a Knock-off?!

I picked up this Robocop figure recently for about a fiver. I'd never owned a Robocop product before, but I enjoyed the first movie, and adored Robocop Versus Terminator for the SEGA Mega Drive, so I thought it looked about the right scale to pose next to my Kenner Terminator figure. The figure looks inoffensive …

Resident Evil 2 Leon Kennedy and Licker figures from Toy Biz, 1998!

I've always preferred '80s action figures over offerings from the '90s, mainly because they were the toys I have fond memories of. Whereas a Street Sharks or POTF2 Star Wars figure would set me back about £5 to £10 from a store, I could easily pick up a whole bunch of He-man or Vintage Star …

Minifigure Madness! Even More Multicoloured Masters of the Universe M.U.S.C.L.E Minifigures!

That title sounds like it deserves to be said by an excitable man doing a voice-over on a commercial break during Saturday morning cartoons. Anyway, last year I was overjoyed to open a tub of MOTU M.U.S.C.L.E figures, so I decided to buy the second wave of them.     I should mention that I …

Knock-off/Bootleg Street Fighter II ‘SNES’ Controller E. Honda and M. Bison Micro Playset!

  It's been a while since I last wrote anything on here. But with it being a new year, I shall endeavor to post somewhat regularly. But we'll see how that goes. Anyway, back in 2017 I reviewed an unofficial Street Fighter II micro playset which featured Guile and Chun-Li, and was based on Guile's …

Funko Savage World Horror Action Figures!

So Halloween has been and gone, and I was hoping that some action figures based on nasty bastards from various horror movies that I had pre-ordered months back would show in time for me to give them the attention they deserve on here at Halloween. Typically, there were delays and the figures weren't released until …

Thingz That Go Bump in the Night! Wacky ’90s Spooky Minifigures!

It's no secret that I harbor a lot of love for spooky colourful toys from the '90s, especially Monster in my Pocket, Boglins and Pocket Shockers, but there are apparently toylines from that era that completely past me by, probably because I  quickly succumbed to a heavy Pokemon addiction in 1998. I had never heard …
