Junior Sports Anchors of America!


No matter how obscure the sporting activity, the Junior Sports Anchors of America are there! Watch for them at your next Ping Pong match or when you just decide to fool around on a trampoline.

Sears Interplanetary Star Fortress


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.

The Magnificent Leopard


I can't remember which comic company published his adventures, was it Atlas or was he a Mighty Crusader?

Spotlight: Funko Jaws Reaction Figures


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:

Carded Space Sword



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 cowhide brothers



These men are easily tracked by following the trail of broken hearts left in their wake....

Action Apeman from Australia


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!
