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, …

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 …

Musings about Christmas things!

I don't do many (if any) posts that aren't reviews or looking at things. But reviews haven't been very forthcoming of late, so probably for the first time ever here is a post that isn't a look at a toy or video game! I really enjoy writing and I think I always have. Somewhere in …

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 …

Day X, Halloween Countdown 2016! Monster in My Pocket!

I don't know any kids that didn't love monsters back in the '90s, or at least appreciate them in some form. Monsters were everywhere, if I had to read at school naturally I would gravitate towards  books like Goosebumps and Shivers and Creepers.Following the after-school cartoons there would be  TV shows like Eerie Indiana, Are …

Day IX, Halloween Countdown 2016! Resident Evil 2 Claire Redfield and Zombie Cop figures from ToyBiz!

The Resident Evil series was undeniably awesome in the early days, back when the games were still obviously 'survival horror' and not just another generic third person shooter. Though the upcoming 'Resident Evil 7' looks like it might be steering back towards its suspenseful ammo hoarding origins. Whether or not the end result is a …

Day III, Halloween Countdown 2016! Spooky Video Games! Ghosts ‘N Goblins on the NES!

I think I have mentioned previously as to how ruthless some NES games could be, and Capcom's Ghosts 'N Goblins is definitely on the extreme end of that scale. Though challenging, it is thoroughly spooky and deserves a mention on the Halloween Countdown. I am pretty sure I played the sequel before I played this …

Cereal box freebies! Nestle ‘Playstation Action Heroes’ toys from 2001!

There aren't many establishments that I have been (soberly) ejected from, but I distinctly remember that as a kid I was threatened of being kicked out of the local super market by a security guard. Why? Was it for stealing sweeties or some other heinous crime? No. I was opening the tops of the cardboard …

5 Random Video Game action figures!

Probably to my girlfriends dismay, I acquire a lot of crap. I make that sound like it just appears and I shrug my shoulders and go about trying to find a space for it. This isn't the case so I should probably rephrase my previous statement. I willingly purchase a lot of crap. I obviously …
