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. …

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.

Random Action Figures! Masters of the Universe Rio Blast from 1986!

So, what do you get if you cross a bloke that looks a bit like Bjorn from Abba with the Terminator and a Wild West/Lone Ranger type character?     One of my favourite figures in the Masters of the Universe line! Rio Blast!   I first encountered Rio Blast when I bought a box …

Random Action Figures! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles General Traag, 1989!

  The TMNT toyline was never really devoid of interesting looking heroes and villains. Robots, ninjas, aliens and mutant creatures always tend to translate well into cool looking toys. But then there were some in the 1987 cartoon, that just looked a bit...crap. Take General Traag. General of the Rock Soldier army from Dimension X. …

Mezco Cinema Of Fear “Tiny Terror” horror Action Figures from 2009!

  I've documented my love of Hasbro's Heroes line before- Star Wars Galactic Heroes, Indiana Jones Adventure Heroes, and Marvel's Superhero Squad. They're essentially cutesey, chunky, wee action figures which are intended for younger fans of each franchise. Each line was released in the late 2000s, but the Star Wars Galactic Heroes line is still …

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. …

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

I've now had my fill of alliteration for the day. I often buy items with the plan to excitedly talk about them on here, but usually I said items somewhere safe and then end up forgetting about them until months and months later. The item(s) I am covering today is definitely in the category of …

Funko Savage World Mortal Kombat MOTU Style Figures! Scorpion and Sub-Zero!

I was a Street Fighter II loyalist as a kid. No other arcade fighting game could possibly interest me until one day I watched a kid playing a game in an arcade that was called Mortal Kombat. It looked much gorier than Street Fighter II and it seemed to play a lot faster as well, …
