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 …

Minifigure Madness! Even More Multicoloured Masters of the Universe M.U.S.C.L.E Minifigures!

That title sounds like it deserves to be said by an excitable man doing a voice-over on a commercial break during Saturday morning cartoons. Anyway, last year I was overjoyed to open a tub of MOTU M.U.S.C.L.E figures, so I decided to buy the second wave of them.     I should mention that I …

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 …
