Day VIII, Halloween Countdown 2016! Kenner The Real Ghostbusters ‘Fright Feature Peter Venkman’ and ‘Haunted Humans: Granny Gross’ action figures!

Ah the Ghostbusters. Remember a time when the franchise wasn't sullied by cheap cash-ins in the form of poorly thought out re-boots that you apparently could only dislike if you harbor misogynistic feelings? I didn't experience the initial airing of The Real Ghostbusters animated TV show (1986-1991) as I was born in 1990,. But I …

Day IV, Halloween Countdown 2016! Kenner Shish Kebab Beetlejuice and Alien Queen action figures!

I don't remember ever seeing Tim Burton's Beetlejuice movie as a kid, which is a damn shame as it would have probably ticked all of my boxes for what constituted as a good movie. I liked spooky shit and crass 'in your face' humor and that was pretty much was this film was all about. …

My memory is pretty darn good regarding unimportant stuff from back when I was a kid. But I don't remember if I saw the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV show before or after I owned these toys . I probably did watch the show first.  I  remember watching the show  with my cousin, but I …

Forgotten toys! Mighty Max Versus the Kronosaur playset.

Remember Polly Pocket? Of course you do. If you or your sister didn't own one, then I am sure you knew someone who did. Much less well remembered (which to me seems odd as they were muuuch  better in my opinion) is the Mighty Max toyline geared more towards boys.     No, it isn't …
