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 …

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 VIII- Mighty Max ‘Tangles with Lockjaw’ Horror Head Playset, Bluebird Toys, 1993!

It was gonna happen. That time when I start to think, "Hmm, what do I own that is spooky?" and then I remember I haven't done a Mighty Max post yet. I think anyone who has visited this site before should be somewhat familiar with Mighty Max by now. Essentially Mighty Max was Polly Pocket …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day VI- Spooky Action Figures- Small Soldiers ‘Freakenstein’ from Hasbro, 1998!

If anyone is going to contest any of my posts for not being 'spooky' enough for Halloween, this is probably going to be the one. Small Soldiers isn't really a horror movie, though it was directed by Joe Dante who also directed Gremlins which is considered to be a creature movie, if not a horror …

Retro Gaming! Road Rash (Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, Electronic Arts, 1991)

Many years ago it was my cousins birthday. I remember him telling me in school some of the things he'd received as birthday presents, a Lego Pirate/Islanders set, a skateboard and a few other things. One of those other things was Road Rash for the Sega Mega Drive, which was as he put it "a …

G.I Joe Street Fighter II Dragon Fortress Action Figure Playset Review!

Well that title was a mouthful, but then again I think most of my titles are. You can buy video game licensed toys and collectibles pretty easily today but once upon a time they didn't really exist, and if they did they were very hard to find. Back in the mid '90s I discovered and …

Small Soldiers Attack Zones! Kitchen Combat Site/Garage Battlefield micro playset!

      I don't think I've really mentioned Small Soldiers on here before which is somewhat of a travesty considering how important the film was to me as a kid. If you haven't seen Small Soldiers, I'm not going to implore you to go and watch it but it is a fun movie. Directed …

Tomy ‘Pocket Arcade’ Teenage Mutant Ninja (Hero) Turtles wind up handheld games! 1990!

If you were a child in the early '90s and your parents didn't like you enough to buy you a Gameboy or even a Tiger electronics handheld game, you might have been the recipient of one of these.     Powered by a wind up mechanism (kids, look it up, there actually was a time …

Kenner toys Terminator 2 ‘Power Arm’ Terminator action figure, 1991!

Walking around a local sci-fi and comic convention recently I came across a blast from the past (or is it future?).     It's the T-800 from Terminator 2! I probably paid a little too much for this toy but it was complete with all of it's accessories, which is quite uncommon for a loose …

Day XI, Halloween Countdown 2016! Vivid Imaginations ‘Pocket Shockers’ from 1994!

Here's a toyline that is virtually unknown, which is a travesty. It's actually so unknown that I couldn't even remember what the toys were called even thoughI owned some of them as a kid. I had to ask the guys on a Monsters in My Pocket forum if they could offer any information as to …
