Archie at Riverdale High

Archie comics and cartoons ruled when I was a kid and I would have loved to have these groovy figures by Marx toys. However, I just don’t remember them so Jughead never got to team up with Batman and Big Jim. Oh, the adventures they would have had! New Six Million Dollar Man Shirt in […]

LJN Road Stars

Which one would you go for as a kid? I’d be torn between Captain America and the Eagle from Space:1999. Also, I wanna meet the kid who saw this display and went “Oh Wow, the Waltons truck!” New Six Million Dollar Man Shirt in our Redbubble store! Don’t forget to join our new facebook group. […]

Mighty Crusaders Rack Toys

I’m excited to have finally tracked down the 1985 Remco/AHI catalog which finally showcases the fine Rack Toys that were offered for the Archie Comics Superhero characters under “The Mighty Crusaders” brand. My major obsession with these is that they’re all re-purposed from mid 1970s AHI Rack Toy merchandise for Batman and Spider-Man. I also […]

Mighty Crusaders Remco Parachutist Figure

There is no greater time in a toy collector’s journey then when they find that something that they thought existed, actually does. Well I guess, finding it for a dollar would trump that but no such luck here. After decades of searching I have found my white whale, the very last produced Parachutist figures by […]

Mighty Crusaders Stunt Cycle

It’s been a while since I’ve found a Rack Toy that excites me (that sounds weird) but this week I totally have. These toys come from Remco/AHI and are as I can figure, the last line of these kind of licensed affairs that AHI was so known for in the 70s and 80s.  Mighty Crusaders […]

Archie at Riverdale High

I would have gone nut for a Jughead as a kid, sadly I never crossed path with these great Marx Archie figures until I was a teenager. Having no Reggie in the line does seem to remove all conflict.

Podstallions 14: Filmation Part One

We’ve probably mentioned Filmation in every one of our shows (it’s our anniversary BTW, what did you get us?) so it’s no surprise that Jason and myself are huge fans of the legendary animation company. Episode one explore our earliest memories of Filmation and tries to relay the Saturday morning experience, look for a longer […]

Mattel’s The Archies

Click the link to see a larger picture After Marx introduced a series of Archie Action figures in 1975, Mattel took a kick at it in 1978 with these been bag versions that used the same construction as their then popular ‘Honey Hill Bunch” line of toys. I have to say that the Mattel sculpts […]

Everything’s Archie!

I never saw these Marx Archie figures as a kid or else I’d have been all over them, I’ve always been a big fan. These are prototypes of the actual figures as some of the head sculpts are off and they definitely didn’t have articulated bodies like that, the actuall product has that lame Sunshine […]
