Even More Playmates Toys 6″ Kaiju Action Figures! Godzilla VS Kong!

There's no denying that many were put off by Playmates attempts at bringing awesome Godzilla/monster figures to toy aisles, what with some of the odd design choices covered in my last post. That said, as soon as images of their toys based on the upcoming Godzilla VS Kong were revealed, I was intrigued. There was …

Playmates Toys, 6″ Kaiju Action Figures! Shin Godzilla, Kong, Space Godzilla, Gigan and Destoroyah!

Yesterday it was announced that the Godzilla vs Kong movie will be coming out in March. I'm not overly excited about this information, mainly because it is supposed to be being shown on a HBO channel which doesn't exist here in the UK, and if I'm not going to get to see it in the …

My Christmas Haul 2020!

As I had predicted, I didn't manage to get any other posts done between my last and this one, as I've been very busy quaffing beer and shovelling festive food into my mouth, and not doing a whole lot of much else. I have managed to tear myself away from eating and drinking for a …

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.

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. …
