More Stupid Star Wars Figures! ‘Deluxe’ Han Solo with Smuggler Flight Pack from 1996!

I've neglected this site a little bit of late, and the reason for that is I am currently contributing to an upcoming gaming magazine called Fusion. If anyone would like to pre-order the first issue, you can do so here. You should because it's radical, and not many things are radical these days, apart from …

Star Wars Saturdays- Something Really Reeks! Electronic Arena Battle Beast and Playskool (Galactic Heroes) Arena Adventure!

I don't hate the Star Wars prequels. I don't think they're particularly good films, but they're still fun enough that I can sit and enjoy them in spite of the ropey dialogue, the abundance of frame cluttering CGI and the walking "fuck you" to the many fans that grew up with the original trilogy- the …

I don't think I gave it much attention last year either which feels like a personal failure as it's definitely one of my favourite times of the year. Regardless of my failings, …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day V- Spooky Action Figures- Remco Mini Monsters Dracula!

Anyone who has read my posts on cereal toys will know how disappointed I am that some countries got amazing toys in their cereal that we sadly didn't get here in the UK. Well this is much worse. In 1979, Remco released a line of figures based on the monsters from the Universal movies, in …

Nevertheless I have managed to tear myself away from Kingdom Hearts to play with …

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 …
