Nightshirts: 1982


My heart belongs to a woman whose heart once belonged to Bo. Sometimes I'm a bit suspicious...

Toy War is Hell


I'm not 100% sure as to why I like the Remco Sgt Rock line so much, never had any as a kid, never really wanted them, not sure I've read a SGT Rock comic that didn't feature Batman in it. My money is on the gorgeous Joe Kubert art that AHI/REMCO used throughout the line.



Yup, that's the ticket.

(PS note the play case did double duty as the Monster play case as well)

Man of Graphite



 

Another one down in my quest for these awesome superhero pencil sharpeners of my youth, this Superman is particularly great although it does beg the question:



 

Why is his midriff bare?

Spotlight: Funko Universal Monster Reaction Figures


Any reader of this blog can ascertain two things a) I like monsters and b) I'm fond of 3 3/4" action figures. So it shouldn't come as a big shock that when Funko made it's announcement they were going to conquer the world with Kenner style figures, I was pretty excited.

I'll admit the majority of the properties didn't entice me (I've never even seen the Goonies) but I pre ordered the Universal Monsters before I saw what they look like, I just know me. 

It did make me wonder though if they could really top my beloved Remco Monsters, the results after the jump:

Presenting the latest (and long overdue) release by Odeon Toys, RON:Spacepimp one of our mascots, RON  is a limited edition 8 inch action figure in the 70s Mego style. He comes complete with genuine vintage threads (real thrift store clothing was murdered to create each figure) and bustling with Kirby dots! 



Every one of the twelve action figures comes on this clamshell card, so he can be displayed MOC or..




being smooth. Warning, we are not responsible for action figure impregnation, we're also not sure if that's a thing.

Special thanks to Steve M for the fabric, Chad Gordy for the head work and the amazing Theressa for the sew magic!

Star Wars Micro Collection Love


The Star Wars Micro Collection came out in 1982 and just as I had sort of kind of given up on the galaxy far, far away. I was 11 and being wooed by Star Trek reruns and the return of GI Joe (which was more of a passing fancy) but deep down I was sorely tempted.

Had the figures been sold seperately on cards instead of sets, I'd have been powerless to resist them.

Again with the Space Sentinels



 

Less than a month ago i posted the Hercule magnetic figure I found from this series, a kindly reader pointed this out to me. The Space Sentinels explorer, even has a sign to avoid confusions. I could not love this more.
