Sometimes I buy Monster toys and then totally forget about them in October, case in point this set. A wonderful “do it yourself” craft set from the UK that includes Frankenstein, the Wolfman and Dracula (the Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry of the monster world). What’s that you ask? Can we look inside Brain? Your wish […]
Oh to have a rainy afternoon with these two sets as a kid. Riddler to beam up!
Amsco famously made these killer adventure sets for properties like Space:1999, The Walton’s and most famously Marvel Superheroes. I was gifted this Planet of the Apes set a couple of years ago but never put it together, so in honour of Apes week, I sat on my office floor and did just that. You know […]

The initial designs were by Jack Kirby and the later giveaway comic book was drawn by John Buscema. All of the later packaging had comic stories on […]

I’ll be honest, I rarely thought of towels as a collectible (ok, I own like three) but now these are all I can think about. The rest of this breathtaking collection can be found after […]
So powerful was Jimmy Walker’s presence on “Good Times” that he was the recipient of two different plush novelties in 1976. Above the deluxe talking edition, which is the least terrifying looking plush on the page. A scowling plush of James Evans Sr (played by John Amos) that said things like “I’m gonna get my […]
Unlike today, Langely and Associates was one of those rare places in the mid 70s where you could buy fan merchandise, their catalog was loaded with everything from King Kong posters to a whole selection of 8″ by 10″ stills from “The Prisoner“. However, the big thing was a wonderful array of Star Trek merchandise, […]
