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 […]

Thunderbird 2: Sci-Fi Revoltech Series No. 44 (toy review).

I’m never quite sure how to classify Japanese toys. The number of small parts would certainly deter them being given to young children to play with on this side of the world. However, putting your spogs aside for the moment, this ‘Thunderbird 2’ makes great fare for us adults wanting something else for our ‘Thunderbirds’ […]

TV Toys by Anthony A. McGoldrick (book review).

When I saw a picture from Anthony A. McGoldrick’s book, ‘TV Toys’, on-line and recognised three of the toys that I own, I thought I ought to investigate further. It’s always interesting to see what other toys might be there in such books and when I scanned the pages, identified fourteen from the photos. This […]

Thunderbirds: 100 F.A.B. Postcards (merchandise review).

About this time of year, you’re no doubt looking around for something a little different to hide away for presents for late December under the dreaded ‘C’mas word. That being the case, you might well come across this little novelty, ‘Thunderbirds: 100 F.A.B. Postcards’. Actually, it’s a slightly bigger novelty because inside the box is […]

Robocop trailer… the man in the machine.

Here’s the first non-teasery trailer for the new Robocop reboot. There’s a few big names in the movie from the looks of this… RoboCop gets the Batman treatment. But will you buy that for a dollar?

Captain, there’s a remote control wessel in the sky.

Expect the incidence of UFO reports to climb steeply as this Star Trek enthusiast demonstrates his fully functional remote control flying Star ship Enterprise model in the skies. Got to love that.

Movie Monsters In Scale by Mark C. Glassy (book review).

Mark C. Glassy’s book ‘Movie Monsters In Scale’ has a more descriptive sub-title, ‘A Modeler’s Gallery Of Science Fiction And Horror Figures And Dioramas’ which suggests far more than a location. A medical scientist by profession and from the looks of things, we’re also of a similar age, Glassy has the itch and by the […]

The Hobbit cast get it on with their Lego Minifigs.

Call this shameless marketing for Lego Minifigs if you will… we’re just a corporate whore at heart, but let’s face it, if Lego made a Minifig of you, wouldn’t you be proud of it? The cast of The Hobbit certainly are!

World’s largest Star Wars figure collection, currently $8k in online auction.

And I thought I had a large collection of Star Wars figures (only from my youth, you understand… not allowed to fill the house up with them post-marriage). But I was wrong, for, as you can clearly see, Rancho Obi-Wan has put close to 2000 figures up for auction on eBay… currently bumping along at […]
