  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 …

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 …

Musings about Christmas things!

Day XIII, Halloween Countdown 2016 finale! Boglins hand puppet!

It is finally here! The final post of Halloween Countdown 2016! The 1980s were a busy time for small creature movies. By small, I don't mean small in budget (though many of these films didn't cost much to make) I mean small in size. None of the creatures in these films were going to climb …
