Pod Stallions 56: Hammer Films

Episode 56 is all about the films by England’s Hammer studios and we honestly try to mention all of them including the one’s we haven’t seen! Our exhaustive retrospective talks about all the sexy vampires, frankenstein monsters, mummies, zombies that the studio that dripped blood could produce! Some of the sidetrack subjects we touch upon […]

AHI Dracula on the card

I had a nice contribution by a fellow named Bob last night of this Azrak Hamway Dracula on the card. I actually didn’t have this version in the AHI Monsters gallery so it was a welcome addition. Dracula was sold in the AHI Official World Famous Super Monsters wave but in a way that distinguished him […]

Very happy to showcase my latest video collaboration with Jason Lenzi, this month we tackle one of my passions, Monster action figures in the most appropriate month to do so. The Tomland Famous Monsters of Legend are one of the rarest sets of monster toys in the world and in this volume we try to […]

Although Galoob was later known for licensed items  and things such as Micro Machines, 1976 […]

One of my favourite monster toys of all time is the Remco Monsterizer, even though it doesn’t a have ton of play value, it’s just such a nice and thoughtful prop. I was happy to discover that mine actually worked the other day and it inspired me to make this little video short all about […]

Glass Lite Dracula from Brazil

One of my favourite monster toys of late is this tremendously quirky 1980s action figure made in  Brazil by the famous (to Star Wars collectors) Glasslite toy company. Glasslite simply released the single 3 3/4″ Dracula, no other monsters appear on the card and he’s a pretty sweet figure but that’s not the best part.   (Photo […]

Mego Mad Monsters Love

I adore the Mego Mad Monsters, it’s definitely in my top five all time Monster toy lines (which I’ll speak more about this month). While Mego didn’t get the Universal license, they created a really crazy series of generic Monster figures that even glow in the dark! Here’s Mego Dracula and the Mummy in their […]
