My visit to the Ray Harryhausen “Titan of Cinema” Exhibition!

As I’m suffering with Covid, I thought would be a perfect time to actually get something written and posted on this poor neglected website.

It isn't often that I do a YouTube video, but I did a YouTube video, where I look at a reproduction of the 1970s Japanese Godzilla figure. The original version of this toy actually appeared onscreen in Godzilla vs Hedorah (the Smog Monster). https://youtu.be/PNwzk9emauE

Goosebumps ‘Monster Bags’ Action Figures from 1996!

READER BEWARE, YOU'RE IN FOR A SCARE... I don't think I knew anyone at my school who wasn't obsessed with Goosebumps at some point. Even kids who weren't into reading still read R.L. Stine's popular horror novel series. I remember going on holiday was always exciting, as there was a little bookshop in Porthmadog, and …

Star Wars ‘The Next 17’ Vintage Style Ephant Mon Action Figure!

I used to collect modern Star Wars toys. Well, I guess I still do to some extent. As a kid, I collected vintage, and then modern (POTF2, Episode I, Saga etc). But then at about fifteen, I sold the lot of modern. And then at about twenty-five, I started picking up modern again. And then …

Star Wars Action Figures! The Mandalorian Retro Collection Review!

WordPress has informed me that today is the fifth anniversary of this site. It's crazy how quickly time has gone by, and I feel a tinge of regret that I've neglected this blog as much as I have. But realistically I just don't have the time to dedicate to this site like I would like. …
