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 […]

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.
