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 …

Dribbling Slime onto Daniel Radcliffe’s Face! Mattel’s Harry Potter Slime Chamber Playset!

I've decided not to do a Halloween countdown this year. Every year I spend a whole lot of time writing about spooky stuff for the thirteen days leading up to Halloween, and it actually makes me end up missing out on doing Halloween things. Binging on the Nightmare on Elmstreet series, eating copious amounts of …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror Finale! Day XIII- Pocket Shockers Manic Mansion Playset! Oozing Slime, Trapdoors and Moving Bookcases!

A year ago when I first looked at Pocket Shockers, I said I was going to try and get hold of the Manic Mansion playset that I remembered owning as a kid. Well, it took a fair amount of time, but after much patience and scouring eBay, I was finally in ownership of this absolute …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day XII- Transforming Mohawk Mogwai/Gremlin Plush!

I really like things that transform into something else. I covered a WereBear last year that I had fond memories of as a kid, and loved how it could either be something cute or something a bit scary. In the early nineties, Hornby (known for their model railway toys) released a series of plush toys …

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 …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day VII- The Real Ghostbusters ‘Mini Traps’, Kenner, 1986.

Do you remember the days when the Kenner toy company decided that kids had been mollycoddled enough and it was time that they lost a few fingers? I give you 'Mini Traps' from The Real Ghostbusters toyline!       Now I am exaggerating a little bit when I suggested that these toys could remove …
