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

I've now had my fill of alliteration for the day. I often buy items with the plan to excitedly talk about them on here, but usually I said items somewhere safe and then end up forgetting about them until months and months later. The item(s) I am covering today is definitely in the category of …

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 …

Superhero Saturdays! Marvel Superheroes ‘Crushing arm’ Incredible Hulk, 1990!

First off, I should apologise for the lack of really Christmassy content. I am so busy lately that I barely get a chance to sit down and post anything at all lately, let alone making sure it's 'seasonal'. Halloween was okay as I kind of planned for it, but come mid October when Christmas songs …

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 …

Video Game Retrospectives! The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX, Gameboy Color 1998

Due to a variety of reasons (most of them boring) it has been a while since I last did a blog post. So I am going to do my best to rectify that now. I am guessing  it would have been around 1999 and I had gone over to a friends house (we had been …

Vintage Star Wars! The first 12 Kenner figures from 1978!

Not that long  ago and not terribly far away, Star Wars wasn't the massive iconic thing it is now. You could go to any toy shop in this day and age and you will probably find Star Wars toys somewhere on their shelves and even toys for upcoming Star Wars movies, months before the new …
