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 …

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 …

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 …

Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Rancor Playset from 1996!

  As much as I loved the original  Return of the Jedi Rancor figure from 1983, there's no denying that it was a bit of a pain in the ass when you made it swallow Yoda, an Ugnaught or a Jawa and they became instantly irretrievable  from the monsters gullet. Galoob must have been only …

Modern Star Wars Figures that are Weird but not Terrible!

My girlfriend always insists we call at the Disney Store whenever we're visiting a city that has one, in the hope that she'll find a Nightmare Before Christmas or Alice in Wonderland plush that she doesn't own. I don't mind at all, although I don't get overly excited by plush toys (with a few exceptions), …

More Stupid Star Wars Figures! ‘Deluxe’ Han Solo with Smuggler Flight Pack from 1996!

I've neglected this site a little bit of late, and the reason for that is I am currently contributing to an upcoming gaming magazine called Fusion. If anyone would like to pre-order the first issue, you can do so here. You should because it's radical, and not many things are radical these days, apart from …

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, …

Most people I know seem glad that they lived through their childhood at the time that they did. Star Wars has been a part of many peoples childhoods, and even today it is still a huge part of many kids lives throughout the world.  I've spoken to people who were kids back in the seventies …
