Toy-Ventures: AHI Star Trek Toys

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!   Get Toy-Ventures Magazine here: http://www.megomuseum.com/odeon/store/products/   Join the Pod Stallions FB Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/podstallions/  

Marvel Water Pistols

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 […]
