As a kid, had I seen this page I would just torn it out and handed it to Santa...

I miss the days of Catalog store's slipping in their own items to catch the latest trend, the Interplanetary Star Fortress and space case are wonderful examples of Sear's tagging onto the Star Wars Juggernaut.

It's been a long time since I did a photo review of a modern toy, this is mainly because I don't buy that many modern toys.
Funko's Jaws line was a break in that drought. I haven't been much into the ReAction stuff as I thought I would be, mostly because the licenses don't appeal but also the figure aesthetic hasn't always been to my liking.
However, the stars lined up pretty swell for this line, it's the perfect license combined with a nice job. More after the jump:

The brilliant Gabriel Toys Lone Ranger action figure line was a big hit in North America but it was also a smash in the UK, where is was sold by Marx Toys.
Today, we've got the 1975 catalog for the British Lone Ranger series which includes some sweet photos of store displays like this:
And once you're finished, we've got the most Gabriel Lone Ranger content on teh interwebs!

Not long after I finally reunited with my childhood fave, a kind soul passed along an ebay auction for this carded version of Space Sword. Something I probably haven't seen or thought about since I was about seven years old.
While I seem to also recall these being sold in bulk "dump bins" as a kid, I couldn't resist the image of beautiful copyright infringing "droid".
You can just hear him say "Suck it Lucas". The quest is totally over, thanks interwebs!

The AHI Action Apemen are one of my favourite knock off lines of all time because they're just so flagrant. This carded example is easily one of the rarest because it's the Australian version and it features a more articulated body and well, look at that card art, shiny!
