Time to celebrate the fun Rack Toys made by Azrak-Hamway International based on “Star Trek”, sure they’re lower cost items but there isn’t any tell-tale “Label Slapping” going on, you can tell these are Star Trek items off the package!

I expect to see Spider-Man and Cap, bonus points for Sgt Fury despite it being a German pistol but Kid Colt Outlaw? That has to be one of his only pieces of merchandise ever. I don’t remember him packing a Saturday night special but whatevs… Get the expanded digital edition of Rack Toys here.

King of the Impossible and King of the drugstore toy aisle, Flash really got around.
One of the nicest things that goes on at MegoMeet is that the dealer’s humour me and allow me to document stuff I can’t afford. Case in point this Official Superman Super Streak by Azrak Hamway, one of the rarest rack toys I’ve ever come across. My best guess is these didn’t sell well due […]
I’ve just returned from my favourite toy convention of all time, Mego Meet and please excuse the sleepy voice but I haven’t had much sleep!
