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. Whilst few could deny Sega's contributions to video gaming, it was less known for its …

Imperial “Classic Movie Monster” Series Action Figures from 1986!

If ever there was a series of action figures that I'd encounter again and again as a kid, it would have be Imperial's Classic Movie Monsters line. Imperial Toys were known predominantly for their cheap dinosaur figures, but did have a few licensed products like these toys based on Universal's iconic monsters, as well as …

Pickups! Newly Acquired Video Games and Interesting things! July-September 2020

  Well I quite enjoyed documenting my pickups from April-June, so I thought it would definitely be something I try and keep up with. I had quite a few new acquisitions lately, but it's really only because I had a bit of a clear out of things in the attic, and sold a few things …

My Star Wars Funko “Japanese Hikari” Sofubi Figure Collection!

I've made it quite clear in previous posts about my dislike of Funko Pop figures. The small bodied, big headed toys with beady black eyes, which seemingly populate everywhere from comic book stores to sections in my local supermarket.Yet Funko I have no real qualms with. They are one of the few major toy companies …

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 …

Mini Boglins Swamp Carry Case, 1991!

With it being mid-October, an obligatory Halloween post was well past  due.  And that also means another Boglins post, seeing as Boglins were originally released at the tail end of the creatures movie craze of the late '80s. With the line bringing the creepy magic of  movies like Gremlins and Critters home with their hand …

Star Wars Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon from 2008!

My girlfriend tolerates a lot of the shit that I buy. Our space is full of boxes of Mighty Max, Monster in my Pocket, Power Rangers etc, as well as a small library of video games I keep adding to, for consoles spanning the past forty years. But then very occasionally there are things I …

UK Super Mario Bros Christmas Cracker toys from 1993!

It was apparently Mario day a couple of days ago, being March 10th or Mar10. Although fashionably late as always, I figured I'd use the opportunity to talk about some extremely obscure Super Mario Bros product that has been nearly lost to time. Before that, I should probably explain to some people what a 'Christmas …
