Star Wars Star Destroyer – largest remote control model ever?

Is the Star Wars Star Destroyer the largest remote control model ever? Could be. They need a pick-up truck to ship the damn thing. Good old Peter Sripol – watch his attempt to get it airborne in this fab video.

Batman Collectables by Rob Burman (book review).

Batman Collectables by Rob Burman (book review).

This ‘Batman Collectables’ by Rob Burman owes more to the 1966 version, whose DVD/blu-ray volumes came out this year than the recent films. Indeed, there is only a couple items noted from the Michael Keaton films and nothing from beyond. At least in terms of related merchandise with only a Hot Wheels large Batmobile from […]

Editorial – October 2015: Do we really need this? by GF Willmetts.

Are we expected to buy every last tat that comes out related to SF?? Hello everyone Age does funny things to merchandise. My age, that is. Not necessarily the age of the merchandise. Mostly, there’s more of it and you have to become selective, deciding what is the good stuff you want to own and […]

Gerry Anderson Collectables by Rob Burman (book review).

With so much ‘Thunderbirds’ books and merchandise out at the moment as a result of the new CGI series, it’s likely this book, ‘Gerry Anderson Collectables’ by Rob Burman might get overlooked. Undoubtedly, if you were brought up in the 1960s, like me, then you will have owned much of the merchandise within this book. […]

Thunderbirds The Vault by Marcus Hearn (book review).

With ‘Thunderbirds The Vault’ by Marcus Hearne, don’t expect pull-outs and such that have been with other vaults. However, there is a wealth of photos from all the Anderson shows, mostly obviously ‘Thunderbirds’, behind the scenes, production staff and merchandise. The only nuisance thing occasionally is having some photos overlaid with photos, especially with things […]

Star Wars: Remote control BB-8 droid toy looks likely to wow.

Robot maker firm Sphero has revealed details of their new remote control toy based on the forthcoming Star Wars Force Unleashed movie BB-8 droid, which is likely to become a rather sold-out and much fought-over toy this Christmas – even at the likely £130 price tag. It’s all done with magnets, you know! I’ll wrestle […]

Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972 by Mark Voger (book review).

Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972 by Mark Voger (book review).

The title ‘Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972’ gives away what this book by Mark Voger is about. It’s just a shame, it has such a rubbish cover, even if it is an illustration of a Don Post mask, which I’m sure would put off readers who would really enjoy the […]

Capturing Archetypes: Twenty Years Of Sideshow Collectables Art   (book review)

It seems to be Sideshow Collectables’ month with another book showing off their wares but as ‘Capturing Archetypes: Twenty Years Of Sideshow Collectables’ was originally released Stateside, this might be more like me catching up. If you live in the USA, you might already own a copy. I should point out that this book isn’t […]

International Rescue: Thunderbird 2 Press-Out And Build Manual by Geoff Rayner and illustrated by Graham Bleathman (book review).

Buy Two and get Four free. By that I mean, with Thunderbird Two, you also get Thunderbird Four. This book, ‘International Rescue: Thunderbird 2 Press-Out And Build Manual’ has text and cutaway diagrams from the ‘International Rescue: Thunderbirds Agents’ Technical Manual’ that I reviewed a while back. However, as the front cover shows, this book […]

In The Pink – a brief article by: GF Willmetts.

Actually, this is more like a word of warning as to where you keep your toys or models. A year or so ago, I noticed when cleaning a toy ‘Marvel Legends’ Magneto in my windowsill that when I took its helmet off, when he’d been exposed to the light was like a light cross on his […]
