Movember Batman

Just When I thought the very talented Tim Baron (Any child of the 1970s/80s will want to check out his creations here) could surprise me no further, he pulls out the funniest Mall Appearance photo I’ve seen in years.  Seriously, whose older brother is playing Batman here?  Also,  I know it’s a pen but I […]

Super Team!

No, this isn’t a still from the upcoming Justice League movie (it’s too bright for one thing) this my friends is from a clever late 70s promotion for a company that seems to brilliantly pioneer what we call “Cosplay” today. Take a better look after the jump. You’ll be glad you did. Major props to […]

Fake Vader

I have no idea who Crowd Pleasers is but I can only imagine they were not officially licensed by Lucasfilm and probably made a fortune doing this.

General Spidrax at Toys R Us

It doesn’t get more 80s than this does it? The badguy from the Sectaurs meeting a kid with a Ghostbusters Tee shirt! Reminder: This is the kind of thing I’m looking for in my next book “Mall of Justice”. How you can get involved: I’m looking for your photos and your recollections! Even if you’ve submitted […]

New Book Project: Mall of Justice

It seems fitting that on the site’s tenth birthday to announce my second book. After the wonderful experience and success of Rack Toys, I am ready to start on Mall of Justice : Recollections of Meeting our Heroes. Mall of Justice is a love letter to the sensational personal appearances of our comic book, TV, movie […]

Shopping with Hordak

My friend Corey sent this picture of his pal Darryl and Hordak at the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre PA circa 1986. He goes on to mention “I can safely say it wasn’t the reason we went to the mall, it was just kinda there. I did take some more shots of Skeletor’s castle which I’ll dig out […]
