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 …

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 …

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

That title sounds like it deserves to be said by an excitable man doing a voice-over on a commercial break during Saturday morning cartoons. Anyway, last year I was overjoyed to open a tub of MOTU M.U.S.C.L.E figures, so I decided to buy the second wave of them.     I should mention that I …

Funko Savage World Horror Action Figures!

So Halloween has been and gone, and I was hoping that some action figures based on nasty bastards from various horror movies that I had pre-ordered months back would show in time for me to give them the attention they deserve on here at Halloween. Typically, there were delays and the figures weren't released until …
