The Croner Buck Rogers action figure line is one of the more curious toy lines as Australia is the only place in the world to have two competing action figure lines for Buck Rogers, Croner and Mego. Are these made by Mego? It’s not known but they sure look similar, more at the Plaid Stallions […]
The Bug Men of Insecta are a wonderfully creepy line of action figures knocking off Masters of the Universe and Sectaurs with a splash of horror. The new gallery has photos, catalog scans and even a video about this weird toy line. More Updates all this week. Cheers! bRaIn Issue 4 of […]

I honestly don’t know why I don’t collect sets like these, as a kid these would happily eat afternoons…..
I won’t lie to you, I would play with this thing right now were it in front of me. We truly lived in a golden age of generic space toys in the last 1970s. Also, those astronaut figures were everywhere!
