Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Death Star Playset from 1996!

A little while back I covered the Star Wars Action Fleet Rebel Base Playset, and it's about time I did the same for the Empire's base. Behold, the Death Star! Like the Rebel Base, the box features a kickass piece of art from legendary concept artist Ralph McQuarrie. I've said it before on this site, …

Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Millenium Falcon from 1997!

If you think anything screams classic Star Wars more than the Millenium Falcon, you are incorrect. It's the location where Luke Skywalker took his initial steps on the path of becoming a Jedi Knight, and the location where Princess Leia and Han Solo shared a first kiss before being cockblocked by C3PO. It's the ship …

Mattel Toy Story 2 Micro Movers! Andy’s Roamin’ Room Playset!

Anyone who has visited this site somewhat regularly will know that as a kid I loved micro playsets. Mighty Max, Pokemon, Star Wars Micro Machines, I couldn't get enough of the teeny little scenes all contained within a colourful, interesting plastic case for easy transportation. There was one micro playset that I yearned for desperately, …

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 …

Tomy’s Pokémon Seafoam Islands (双子島) ‘Polly Pocket’ Micro Playset!

What feels like a lifetime ago, I reviewed a Polly-Pocket-esque Pokémon Micro Playset based around Viridian Forest, the bug-infested woodlands linking Pewter City and Viridian City. I thought I'd also reviewed another set containing Charmander and Eevee but apparently not. Anyway, here's another recent Pokémon micro playset pickup, dating back to the late '90s or …

Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Rebel Base Playset, 1997!

Did any of you ever receive a birthday present or toy when you were a kid, that you hadn't circled in the Argos or Index catalogue, so subsequently it wasn't on your wish list, and you were initially puzzled as to just what the item was? I did. And then after a while it became …

Disney Theme Park Exclusive Indiana Jones Micro Figures and Vehicles from 2000!

I've always thought Indiana Jones was neat, ever since I was a small kid, but my introduction to the whip-swinging archaeologist was actually not  the movies, but from a comic book "annual" of The Temple of Doom that I'd picked up from a car boot sale in Wales. This method of being introduced to existing …

Knock-off/Bootleg Street Fighter II ‘SNES’ Controller E. Honda and M. Bison Micro Playset!

  It's been a while since I last wrote anything on here. But with it being a new year, I shall endeavor to post somewhat regularly. But we'll see how that goes. Anyway, back in 2017 I reviewed an unofficial Street Fighter II micro playset which featured Guile and Chun-Li, and was based on Guile's …

Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Rancor Playset from 1996!

  As much as I loved the original  Return of the Jedi Rancor figure from 1983, there's no denying that it was a bit of a pain in the ass when you made it swallow Yoda, an Ugnaught or a Jawa and they became instantly irretrievable  from the monsters gullet. Galoob must have been only …

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 …
