The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Collectibles by John Buss (book review).

I would contradict writer John Buss over ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ being the prime TV 1960s American spy show as ‘I Spy’ and certainly ‘Mission: Impossible’ lasted far longer. With the latter two, they had books and annuals but not the merchandise compared to UNCLE which was more family friendly. All merchandise is from the […]

The Avengers And New Avengers Collectibles by John Buss (book review).

I pulled a copy of this book, ‘The Avengers And New Avengers Collectibles’ by John Buss, really to look up information about the original Corgi ‘The Avengers Gift Set’ as to whether Steed’s Bentley should be red or green. Primarily, Corgi already had the car and went red then green. As the first season was […]

She’s a Barbie girl, in a Star Wars world? (toy news).

Mattel are feeling the force – or something – as there are four new Star Wars Barbies available for pre-order and June 2020 release. You can get a Rey Barbie, C-3PO Barbie, Stormtrooper Barbie, and Chewbacca Barbie, for the very reasonable price of $100 each – or $150 for Wookie Barbie. Maybe because skinning a […]

Martin Bower’s World Of Models by Shaun McClure & Martin Bower (book review).

I’ve known Martin Bower was involved in model-making from many decades back, enforced when he had a small exhibition in Bristol’s ‘The Forever People’ comicbook shop back in the mid-1980s. Oddly, a couple scale female figures he did then aren’t featured here. This book, ‘Martin Bower’s World Of Models’ goes over his life and how […]

The Art & Making Of Fantasy Miniatures by Jamie Kendall (book review).

Part of the job of reviewing is picking out books that although I might not know about the subject generally, I do appreciate that some of you out there do and I can learn something about it. I don’t do RPG and have only a passing acquaintance with the associated miniatures that are your playing […]
