Nintendo Pokémon Pikachu Tamagotchi/cyber pet!

      I realised the other day that Pokémon GO was not actually the first time that Nintendo or the Pokémon company had tried to peel kids off the sofa and get them to go and walk about outside. Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to the fickle little asshole that is …

Five of my Favourite Original Nintendo Gameboy Games!

The Nintendo Gameboy was a juggernaut back in the day and was the first console in the realms of portable gaming as we know it. With its strange green coloured screen it really didn't make for gamings clearest picture. But if you were in a well lit room or traveling when the sun wasn't blazing, …

Superhero Sundays! Lego 76060 Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum!

With the amount of Lego Superhero sets that I own I could probably do a Superhero Sundays post for the next twenty years. Unfortunately though I don't have much power, I do have a fair amount  of responsibilities and I don't have the time to do one every Sunday at present. That said, I really …

Small Soldiers Attack Zones! Kitchen Combat Site/Garage Battlefield micro playset!

      I don't think I've really mentioned Small Soldiers on here before which is somewhat of a travesty considering how important the film was to me as a kid. If you haven't seen Small Soldiers, I'm not going to implore you to go and watch it but it is a fun movie. Directed …

The Christmas reveal post 2016!

        Before I write about cheerful fun things, I feel I should acknowledge the sad death of Carrie Fisher.  Initially I was in shock and in disbelief when I was first informed about it. She was a fantastic, witty woman and a strong advocate for mental health. And to so many she …

Jakks Pacific World of Nintendo- The Legend of Zelda Microland playsets!

There was a point in my life when I was about seven of eight when nothing would have made me happier than owning some Legend of Zelda toys. I often imagined them, what they would look like and what game features could be taken from the games and made into plastic form. I envisioned a …

Tomy ‘Pocket Arcade’ Teenage Mutant Ninja (Hero) Turtles wind up handheld games! 1990!

If you were a child in the early '90s and your parents didn't like you enough to buy you a Gameboy or even a Tiger electronics handheld game, you might have been the recipient of one of these.     Powered by a wind up mechanism (kids, look it up, there actually was a time …

Kenner toys Terminator 2 ‘Power Arm’ Terminator action figure, 1991!

Walking around a local sci-fi and comic convention recently I came across a blast from the past (or is it future?).     It's the T-800 from Terminator 2! I probably paid a little too much for this toy but it was complete with all of it's accessories, which is quite uncommon for a loose …

Day XIII, Halloween Countdown 2016 finale! Boglins hand puppet!

It is finally here! The final post of Halloween Countdown 2016! The 1980s were a busy time for small creature movies. By small, I don't mean small in budget (though many of these films didn't cost much to make) I mean small in size. None of the creatures in these films were going to climb …
