My visit to the Ray Harryhausen “Titan of Cinema” Exhibition!

As I’m suffering with Covid, I thought would be a perfect time to actually get something written and posted on this poor neglected website. As I’m currently not going far from my bed, it’s given me time to reflect on interesting places visited the past year or so. Arcade Club in Bury Manchester was definitely …

Bullmark 1970 Reproduction Godzilla figure, by Bandai B-club, 2001!

It isn't often that I do a YouTube video, but I did a YouTube video, where I look at a reproduction of the 1970s Japanese Godzilla figure. The original version of this toy actually appeared onscreen in Godzilla vs Hedorah (the Smog Monster). https://youtu.be/PNwzk9emauE

Goosebumps ‘Monster Bags’ Action Figures from 1996!

READER BEWARE, YOU'RE IN FOR A SCARE... I don't think I knew anyone at my school who wasn't obsessed with Goosebumps at some point. Even kids who weren't into reading still read R.L. Stine's popular horror novel series. I remember going on holiday was always exciting, as there was a little bookshop in Porthmadog, and …

Pickups! Newly Acquired Video Games, Movies, Toys and Interesting things! April-June 2021!

I said I'd try and post again soon and realised that I hadn't yet done my pickups post from the past three months. So here we go! More Ultraman series! After finishing Ultra Q and Ultraman, I needed more more of a fix of Japanese Kaiju TV shows, so picked up Ultraseven, Return of Ultraman …

Star Wars Action Figures! The Mandalorian Retro Collection Review!

WordPress has informed me that today is the fifth anniversary of this site. It's crazy how quickly time has gone by, and I feel a tinge of regret that I've neglected this blog as much as I have. But realistically I just don't have the time to dedicate to this site like I would like. …

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, …

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, …

Imperial Godzilla and King Kong Action Figures from 1985!

Having been on a bit of creature feature binge lately, I thought it only fair that I mention some of the other monsters made by Imperial Toys, based on characters that are much larger than the classic Universal Monsters characters I covered yesterday. So here's the hairy Eighth Wonder of the World, and the irradiated …

My Star Wars Funko “Japanese Hikari” Sofubi Figure Collection!

I've made it quite clear in previous posts about my dislike of Funko Pop figures. The small bodied, big headed toys with beady black eyes, which seemingly populate everywhere from comic book stores to sections in my local supermarket.Yet Funko I have no real qualms with. They are one of the few major toy companies …
