My Christmas Haul 2020!

As I had predicted, I didn't manage to get any other posts done between my last and this one, as I've been very busy quaffing beer and shovelling festive food into my mouth, and not doing a whole lot of much else. I have managed to tear myself away from eating and drinking for a …

It's been a little while since my last post, and I do plan on writing about something more festive than just a pickups post. But for now, here are some of things I've picked up since October! It's not quite as a varied or long list as the previous posts, as I've been concentrating on …

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 …

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 …

Slashers From The 8-bit Console Era!

Video games of the horror genre are by no means a rarity these days. This year alone has seen the release of games like the psychological horror Layers of Fear 2, as well as survival horror titles like the Resident Evil 2 remake and Days Gone. In the spirit of Halloween, I thought I'd take …

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 …

Resident Evil 2 Leon Kennedy and Licker figures from Toy Biz, 1998!

I've always preferred '80s action figures over offerings from the '90s, mainly because they were the toys I have fond memories of. Whereas a Street Sharks or POTF2 Star Wars figure would set me back about £5 to £10 from a store, I could easily pick up a whole bunch of He-man or Vintage Star …

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 …
