Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day VI- Spooky Action Figures- Small Soldiers ‘Freakenstein’ from Hasbro, 1998!

If anyone is going to contest any of my posts for not being 'spooky' enough for Halloween, this is probably going to be the one. Small Soldiers isn't really a horror movie, though it was directed by Joe Dante who also directed Gremlins which is considered to be a creature movie, if not a horror …

Halloween Countdown 2017! Thirteen Days of Horror! Day V- Spooky Action Figures- Remco Mini Monsters Dracula!

Anyone who has read my posts on cereal toys will know how disappointed I am that some countries got amazing toys in their cereal that we sadly didn't get here in the UK. Well this is much worse. In 1979, Remco released a line of figures based on the monsters from the Universal movies, in …

The Forgotten Starship’s 1st Anniversary! Knock-off/Bootleg Street Fighter II ‘SNES’ Controller Guile and Chun-Li Micro Playset!

Today marks The Forgotten Starship's first anniversary. It's hard to believe that it has already been a year since my first post, which was a look at the Mighty Max Kronosaur playset. Seeing as that first ever post was looking at a micro playset, it's probably appropriate to look at another micro playset, in honor …

G.I Joe Street Fighter II Dragon Fortress Action Figure Playset Review!

Well that title was a mouthful, but then again I think most of my titles are. You can buy video game licensed toys and collectibles pretty easily today but once upon a time they didn't really exist, and if they did they were very hard to find. Back in the mid '90s I discovered and …

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 …

Star Wars Saturdays! The best Secret Santa present ever- Micro Machines double takes Death Star/Tatooine playset!

A few years back now, I signed up for www.starwarsforum.co.uk, a site that focuses primarily on collecting vintage Star Wars memorabilia from the late '70s to the mid '80s. It's an awesome place full of laid back, knowledgeable, funny, friendly people. One of the most exciting things to happen is the Secret Santa which happens in …

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 …

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 …
