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 …

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 …

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

I've now had my fill of alliteration for the day. I often buy items with the plan to excitedly talk about them on here, but usually I said items somewhere safe and then end up forgetting about them until months and months later. The item(s) I am covering today is definitely in the category of …

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 …

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 …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day XI- Pocket Shockers ‘Cobra Combat’, ‘Demons Trap’ and ‘Hot Coals’ playsets! (Vivid Imaginations, 1994).

My scheduling has been a bit shitty the last few days. I was late putting up yesterdays post and I think the one the day before. I'm furiously typing this to try and get it out before 12AM (it's currently 23.28AM). I had some technical problems with the site yesterday, and today we decided to …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day X- Mini Boglins!

Boglins made an appearance on here last year in the form of this large hand-puppet Boglin. When I was puzzling over what to cover on this years Halloween Countdown, I received a package off a friend which contained an array of interesting things (some of which I shall be looking at in future). Most notable …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day IX- Ghostbusters ‘Classics’ figures from Mattel!

Here in the UK there is a chain of discount stores called Home Bargains that sometimes sell really interesting things at pretty good prices. When I say 'interesting', I mean toys. There's always a buzz in groups on Facebook when a particularly desirable 'thing' arrives in, and reports on what stores are selling the certain …

Cereal Box Freebies! French Donkey Kong figures from Kellogg’s Choco Pops, 1997!

      It's been over a year since I wrote about the German Super Mario Bros. figures that came free with Mars Chocolate bars in 1994, and at the end of that post I said that I would probably take a look at more Nintendo promotional toys in the near future. Well, I think …
