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 […]
It wouldn’t be Halloween without me waxing poetic about my favourite monster toy line of all time, the Lincoln Monsters. This year I came across one of my absolute grails, in the form of finding the 1976 Galoob toys catalog. Although Galoob was later known for licensed items and things such as Micro Machines, 1976 […]

This extensive 1976 catalog really demonstrates the power house licenses they had from the Universal Monsters and Mickey Mouse, the Superheroes of both Marvel and DC to TV sensations like the Six Million Dollar Man and the […]
