Pod Stallions Episode 55: Tarzan

Episode 55 is all about the Lord of the Jungle, Tarzan of the Apes J&B (the hosts, not the crappy scotch) discuss their initial exposure to the Lord of the Jungle in his many television, film, print and comic adaptions over their life times culminating with last summer’s adaptation. Some of the subjects we touch […]

Pod Stallions 54: Movies of 1982

For our 54th show, we start with a brief (well for us) discussion about our thoughts on the newest actor to take the mantle of Doctor Who.  Then we dig deep into the movies released the summer of 1982. Some call it the greatest summer for movies and hey, a lot of these movies went […]

Happy Friday, here is another one from the recently digitized archive, this is the revised for the Mattel Battlestar Galactica toy line that clearly states the missiles no longer fire. We all know why…. More frakking cool toys:

Pod Stallions 50: Listener Request Show

For our 50th show we put it to you, our wonderful audience and boy did you have some good ideas, seriously you gave us a year’s worth of topics, Jason and I don’t have to do any thinking in 2017 and we thank you because we hate thinking. But for this show we chose these […]

Pod Stallions 45 : The Monkees

We’re thrilled to be back recording PodStallions after some truly turbulent times. Today’s show is all about our mutual love for the Monkee’s, although neither of us were alive for the show’s original run we were both hooked on reruns and records during the middle 1970s. We kick off the show playing catch up and […]

Hasbro 1973 World of Love Catalog

Hasbro described Love dolls as: “She’s what’s happening. She’s today’s American teenager and she’s part of the World of Love“. This was an interesting to attempt to combine  Fashion dolls with what was left over of the hippie movement in the early 1970s as Hasbro hoped little girls would clamour to enact adventures for Love […]

Beno’s Toys Christmas book from 1979

Seeing as Christmas and shopping is all that on our minds right now, let’s take a look at the specials offered 36 years ago with the Beno’s Toy flyer. I’ve never heard of this California based chain but I sure recognize the toys like Kenner Star Wars, Play-Doh and a metric ton of classic hand […]

Mold-A-Rama Blow Mould Frankensteins

Turning the reins over to my buddy Matt today, who provided not only the photos but the prose as well. Take it away Matt! These are the wonderful, magnificent, Mold-A-Rama Blow Mould Frankensteins. Mold-A-Rama first appeared in the mid-60s, and was a staple of the Museum and Zoo experience for lucky kids in the 60s, […]

Sears Floor Model Computer

I finally tracked down a toy I’ve been after for ages. Made by Sears and sold in the fashion doll pages this toy hits on something I love, OLD TIMEY COMPUTERS.  I’d have to say that this was not meant as an accessory for Barbie but more for the Bionic Woman and Wonder Woman figures of the day. […]

Pod Stallions Epsiode 27b: The Krofft Super Show (Part 2)

Seeing as we were unceremoniously cut off from finishing last month’s show, Jason and myself decided to cut a “mini-sode” in addition to our regular show (which debuts next Friday) to finish what we started. We pick up on “Pink Lady and Jeff” talk about the Bay City Rollers, briefly touch on DC Follies and […]
