Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day XII- Transforming Mohawk Mogwai/Gremlin Plush!

I really like things that transform into something else. I covered a WereBear last year that I had fond memories of as a kid, and loved how it could either be something cute or something a bit scary. In the early nineties, Hornby (known for their model railway toys) released a series of plush toys …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day XI- Pocket Shockers ‘Cobra Combat’, ‘Demons Trap’ and ‘Hot Coals’ playsets! (Vivid Imaginations, 1994).

My scheduling has been a bit shitty the last few days. I was late putting up yesterdays post and I think the one the day before. I'm furiously typing this to try and get it out before 12AM (it's currently 23.28AM). I had some technical problems with the site yesterday, and today we decided to …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day X- Mini Boglins!

Boglins made an appearance on here last year in the form of this large hand-puppet Boglin. When I was puzzling over what to cover on this years Halloween Countdown, I received a package off a friend which contained an array of interesting things (some of which I shall be looking at in future). Most notable …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day VIII- Mighty Max ‘Tangles with Lockjaw’ Horror Head Playset, Bluebird Toys, 1993!

It was gonna happen. That time when I start to think, "Hmm, what do I own that is spooky?" and then I remember I haven't done a Mighty Max post yet. I think anyone who has visited this site before should be somewhat familiar with Mighty Max by now. Essentially Mighty Max was Polly Pocket …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day VI- Spooky Action Figures- Small Soldiers ‘Freakenstein’ from Hasbro, 1998!

If anyone is going to contest any of my posts for not being 'spooky' enough for Halloween, this is probably going to be the one. Small Soldiers isn't really a horror movie, though it was directed by Joe Dante who also directed Gremlins which is considered to be a creature movie, if not a horror …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day I- Kinder Surprise ‘Glowing Ghosties’ toys from 1996!

It's that time of year again! That glorious but finite occasion where confectionery in stores become suddenly horror themed, costume parties are aplenty and we garb our homes in cobwebs, plastic spiders and other seasonably fiendish items. Or if like me you live in the UK, you'll probably  treat Halloween as a minor inconvenience or …

Final Fantasy VII Extra Knights Action Figures, from Bandai, 1997!

I've been on a bit of a Final Fantasy kick of late. It started when I got the PS4 a few months ago and blitzed through Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy X HD. After finishing X, I went and bought Final Fantasy XII, but before I could install it they went and released Final Fantasy …

Cereal Box Freebies! French Donkey Kong figures from Kellogg’s Choco Pops, 1997!

      It's been over a year since I wrote about the German Super Mario Bros. figures that came free with Mars Chocolate bars in 1994, and at the end of that post I said that I would probably take a look at more Nintendo promotional toys in the near future. Well, I think …

Video review! 1997 Bluebird Toys Doctor Who ‘Dalek’ micro playset!

It's been a damn long time coming. But here is my first, very amateur review video, which is a look at a '90s Doctor Who Dalek playset!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26uMjdQP5oY&feature=youtu.be       Dunno whether I'm properly going to go down the YouTube route, but I thought I ought to probably test the waters. Anyway, thanks …

The Forgotten Starship’s 1st Anniversary! Knock-off/Bootleg Street Fighter II ‘SNES’ Controller Guile and Chun-Li Micro Playset!

Today marks The Forgotten Starship's first anniversary. It's hard to believe that it has already been a year since my first post, which was a look at the Mighty Max Kronosaur playset. Seeing as that first ever post was looking at a micro playset, it's probably appropriate to look at another micro playset, in honor …
