SEGA & Tyco Pocket Power Glo-Bones Skeleton Action Figure, from 1988!

Before Sega had become a serious competitor to Nintendo in the early '90s with the release of the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) console and popular mascot Sonic the Hedgehog, it was known for its success within video game arcades worldwide. Whilst few could deny Sega's contributions to video gaming, it was less known for its …

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. Imperial Toys were known predominantly for their cheap dinosaur figures, but did have a few licensed products like these toys based on Universal's iconic monsters, as well as …

An Obligatory Mighty Max Post! ‘Kingdom of Gargantua/Tangles With the Ape King’ Playset!

It's October, the month of Halloween, and that means an obligatory Mighty Max post! So I recently wrote an article on Mighty Max for an upcoming toy edition of Fusion Magazine, and whilst I was writing it I decided to have a look at how much Mighty Max toys were going on eBay lately. And …

Mezco Cinema Of Fear “Tiny Terror” horror Action Figures from 2009!

  I've documented my love of Hasbro's Heroes line before- Star Wars Galactic Heroes, Indiana Jones Adventure Heroes, and Marvel's Superhero Squad. They're essentially cutesey, chunky, wee action figures which are intended for younger fans of each franchise. Each line was released in the late 2000s, but the Star Wars Galactic Heroes line is still …

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.

Funko Savage World Horror Action Figures!

So Halloween has been and gone, and I was hoping that some action figures based on nasty bastards from various horror movies that I had pre-ordered months back would show in time for me to give them the attention they deserve on here at Halloween. Typically, there were delays and the figures weren't released until …

Thingz That Go Bump in the Night! Wacky ’90s Spooky Minifigures!

It's no secret that I harbor a lot of love for spooky colourful toys from the '90s, especially Monster in my Pocket, Boglins and Pocket Shockers, but there are apparently toylines from that era that completely past me by, probably because I  quickly succumbed to a heavy Pokemon addiction in 1998. I had never heard …

Capcom Energy Drinks! Resident Evil T-Virus Antidote!

Do you know what would be completely shitty? if you were having a lovely day out in the Arklay Mountains on the outskirts of Raccoon city and you ended up getting chewed on by a wandering zombie, which would probably result in you contracting the T-Virus, guaranteeing a slow and painful death as well as …

Mega Bloks Plasma Kreaps! Vampire Castle Night Stalker!

I never really had any experience with Mega Bloks until they released a whole bunch of Halo sets a few years back to tie into the Halo Wars game. Being a bit of a Halo fanboy, I spent an absolute fortune on the line until I got sick of the lack of space that all …
