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 Game of Thrones 3-3/4″ Action Figures and “The Wall” Display Set!

The idea of Game of Thrones figures in a 3-3/4" scale sounds a pretty good one. An array of figures based on characters from all over the world of Game of Thrones, complete with their various iconic accessories. Daenerys with her dragon eggs, Arya Stark with her sword needle, there were so many possibilities for …

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, …

The ‘Square Minimum Collection’! Strange, Blockish Final Fantasy Action Figures!

  I've mentioned before of my love of Final Fantasy and have already covered some of the toys from FF VII but today I thought I'd take a look at some figures that are a little bit different.       It's the 'Square Minimum Collection'!  The idea of this line is that they would …

Mattel’s Masters of the Universe! The Original Wave of Figures from 1982!

  The good thing about being a '90s kid was that there was always an abundance of discarded '80s toys lying around in cardboard boxes at car boot sales and antique fairs when I was growing up. Awesome stuff that was just begging to be discovered, usually at a very reasonable price. After recently watching …

Star Wars Saturdays- Something Really Reeks! Electronic Arena Battle Beast and Playskool (Galactic Heroes) Arena Adventure!

I don't hate the Star Wars prequels. I don't think they're particularly good films, but they're still fun enough that I can sit and enjoy them in spite of the ropey dialogue, the abundance of frame cluttering CGI and the walking "fuck you" to the many fans that grew up with the original trilogy- the …

Funko ReAction Firefly 3-3/4″ Action Figures!

I love Firefly and I think it could easily be my favourite TV series to date. It's got everything I find appealing in a science fiction show- likeable characters with good progression, the right amount of humour, a 'believable' universe, and thrilling, suspenseful adventures. It's also dripping with that worn-in kind of charm that Star …

My Christmas Haul 2017!

I haven't given Christmas any attention on here this year as I've just been so damn busy visiting family in England and stuff. I don't think I gave it much attention last year either which feels like a personal failure as it's definitely one of my favourite times of the year. Regardless of my failings, …

A ‘Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You’ Rant and European Exclusive Pokémon Candy Figures from the ’90s!

I've been on a bit of a Pokémon trip of late, after we went to the cinema to see the new Pokémon movie (I Choose You). I had very mixed feelings on it. I disliked how it completely shat on existing continuity, by retelling stories from the original '90s cartoons but replacing fan favourite characters …
