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 …

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 …

Pickups! Newly Acquired Video Games and Interesting things! April-June 2020

In my previous post, I said I was going to cover a few different things on this site. One of the new things I'd like to do is post about new games or cool things that I've acquired over a period of time. I love looking back at things like that, so this feels like …

Me Moaning about The Forgotten Starship, and the Future of this Site

So for the past year or so, my enthusiasm towards this site has kind of waned somewhat. It's not a quick process, writing a post, trying to make it entertaining and informative, taking pictures, uploading pictures- the whole process will usually take me a good few hours. And then I only get a few clicks …

Random Action Figures! Masters of the Universe Rio Blast from 1986!

So, what do you get if you cross a bloke that looks a bit like Bjorn from Abba with the Terminator and a Wild West/Lone Ranger type character?     One of my favourite figures in the Masters of the Universe line! Rio Blast!   I first encountered Rio Blast when I bought a box …

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 …
