Mattel’s Masters of the Universe! The Original Wave of Figures from 1982!

  The good thing about being a '90s kid was that there was always an abundance of discarded '80s toys lying around in cardboard boxes at car boot sales and antique fairs when I was growing up. Awesome stuff that was just begging to be discovered, usually at a very reasonable price. After recently watching …

Star Wars Saturdays- Something Really Reeks! Electronic Arena Battle Beast and Playskool (Galactic Heroes) Arena Adventure!

I don't hate the Star Wars prequels. I don't think they're particularly good films, but they're still fun enough that I can sit and enjoy them in spite of the ropey dialogue, the abundance of frame cluttering CGI and the walking "fuck you" to the many fans that grew up with the original trilogy- the …

Odd Food! More Weird and Disgusting Flavoured Sticks of Candy Rock!

Some of you might remember that I covered weird flavoured sticks of rock ages ago. My Auntie sent me more which have been kicking about for a while, so I thought I ought to finally get around to abusing my taste buds and giving 'em a go. And there was quite a selection to try! …

Funko ReAction Firefly 3-3/4″ Action Figures!

I love Firefly and I think it could easily be my favourite TV series to date. It's got everything I find appealing in a science fiction show- likeable characters with good progression, the right amount of humour, a 'believable' universe, and thrilling, suspenseful adventures. It's also dripping with that worn-in kind of charm that Star …

The CRASH Annual 2018! A Revival of one of the Iconic Names in British Gaming! (And my very tiny contributions towards it!)

Whenever I see a cassette tape, I am instantly transported back to my childhood. To me, cassette tapes will always be more synonymous with the many happy hours sat playing computer games instead of listening to music. I grew up a little too late for me to feel the warm, glowing blanket of nostalgia that …

My Christmas Haul 2017!

I haven't given Christmas any attention on here this year as I've just been so damn busy visiting family in England and stuff. I don't think I gave it much attention last year either which feels like a personal failure as it's definitely one of my favourite times of the year. Regardless of my failings, …

A ‘Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You’ Rant and European Exclusive Pokémon Candy Figures from the ’90s!

I've been on a bit of a Pokémon trip of late, after we went to the cinema to see the new Pokémon movie (I Choose You). I had very mixed feelings on it. I disliked how it completely shat on existing continuity, by retelling stories from the original '90s cartoons but replacing fan favourite characters …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror Finale! Day XIII- Pocket Shockers Manic Mansion Playset! Oozing Slime, Trapdoors and Moving Bookcases!

A year ago when I first looked at Pocket Shockers, I said I was going to try and get hold of the Manic Mansion playset that I remembered owning as a kid. Well, it took a fair amount of time, but after much patience and scouring eBay, I was finally in ownership of this absolute …
