Star Wars Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon from 2008!

My girlfriend tolerates a lot of the shit that I buy. Our space is full of boxes of Mighty Max, Monster in my Pocket, Power Rangers etc, as well as a small library of video games I keep adding to, for consoles spanning the past forty years. But then very occasionally there are things I …

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 …

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 …

Star Wars Saturdays- Something Really Reeks! Electronic Arena Battle Beast and Playskool (Galactic Heroes) Arena Adventure!

I don't hate the Star Wars prequels. I don't think they're particularly good films, but they're still fun enough that I can sit and enjoy them in spite of the ropey dialogue, the abundance of frame cluttering CGI and the walking "fuck you" to the many fans that grew up with the original trilogy- the …

The Christmas reveal post 2016!

        Before I write about cheerful fun things, I feel I should acknowledge the sad death of Carrie Fisher.  Initially I was in shock and in disbelief when I was first informed about it. She was a fantastic, witty woman and a strong advocate for mental health. And to so many she …

Musings about Christmas things!

I don't do many (if any) posts that aren't reviews or looking at things. But reviews haven't been very forthcoming of late, so probably for the first time ever here is a post that isn't a look at a toy or video game! I really enjoy writing and I think I always have. Somewhere in …

Star Wars Saturdays! Jabba Glob toy! (Vomiting Jabba the Hutt).

Sometimes I encounter a toy or a plaything that makes me really question what the hell the designers were thinking. But not this day. Ladies and gentleman, may I please introduce you to my new favourite thing in the worl:     It's Jabba Glob! There was a certain period of time in the '80s …
