Robocop 1993 Action Figure! Fallacious or a Knock-off?!

I picked up this Robocop figure recently for about a fiver. I'd never owned a Robocop product before, but I enjoyed the first movie, and adored Robocop Versus Terminator for the SEGA Mega Drive, so I thought it looked about the right scale to pose next to my Kenner Terminator figure. The figure looks inoffensive …

Resident Evil 2 Leon Kennedy and Licker figures from Toy Biz, 1998!

I've always preferred '80s action figures over offerings from the '90s, mainly because they were the toys I have fond memories of. Whereas a Street Sharks or POTF2 Star Wars figure would set me back about £5 to £10 from a store, I could easily pick up a whole bunch of He-man or Vintage Star …

Modern Star Wars Figures that are Weird but not Terrible!

My girlfriend always insists we call at the Disney Store whenever we're visiting a city that has one, in the hope that she'll find a Nightmare Before Christmas or Alice in Wonderland plush that she doesn't own. I don't mind at all, although I don't get overly excited by plush toys (with a few exceptions), …

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 …

Funko Game of Thrones 3-3/4″ Action Figures and “The Wall” Display Set!

The idea of Game of Thrones figures in a 3-3/4" scale sounds a pretty good one. An array of figures based on characters from all over the world of Game of Thrones, complete with their various iconic accessories.

Funko Savage World Mortal Kombat MOTU Style Figures! Scorpion and Sub-Zero!

I was a Street Fighter II loyalist as a kid. No other arcade fighting game could possibly interest me until one day I watched a kid playing a game in an arcade that was called Mortal Kombat. It looked much gorier than Street Fighter II and it seemed to play a lot faster as well, …

Mattel’s Masters of the Universe! The Original Wave of Figures from 1982!

  The good thing about being a '90s kid was that there was always an abundance of discarded '80s toys lying around in cardboard boxes at car boot sales and antique fairs when I was growing up. Awesome stuff that was just begging to be discovered, usually at a very reasonable price. After recently watching …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day VII- The Real Ghostbusters ‘Mini Traps’, Kenner, 1986.

Do you remember the days when the Kenner toy company decided that kids had been mollycoddled enough and it was time that they lost a few fingers? I give you 'Mini Traps' from The Real Ghostbusters toyline!       Now I am exaggerating a little bit when I suggested that these toys could remove …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day II- Spooky Action Figures! Super Naturals ‘Skull’ figure from Tonka, 1987!

  There was a time in the '90s where I would wander around carboot sales and find amazing toys from the previous decade that I just could not identify, as in I had no prior knowledge on what toyline some things were from, but I still knew when I was holding something impressive in my …

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 …
