One of my favourite things about Department store wishbooks is when they snuck in an exclusive item. Sometimes this was whole figures like the Mego Secret Identity figures; other times, carry cases or even playsets meant to be used with the toys unofficially.

I don’t collect Bugs Bunny merchandise as an adult, I honestly feel watching Looney Tunes as a kid was time well spent. The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner show was an oasis every Sunday away from “Hee Haw” and freaking “Lawrence Welk” (which I now adore).

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 […]
Ever since I posted this back in 2010, I have been keeping my eyes out for one at Toy Shows. At last weekend’s Mego Meet it walked right up to me as somebody I know was selling it and wanted my opinion. I didn’t get to buy it but I did take a few better […]
The post Star Wars era was a gold mine for space toys, take this set by Multiple (now going by Miner) in 1980. I kind of want to play with this now….
