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 […]
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.

After the success of the previous films in the ‘Toy Story’ franchise, Disney/Pixar have suggested that their next new movie in the series might combine live-action with CGI and feature characters from all three films. George Clooney is in the frame as being lined up to play the Buzz Lightyear role, with Bradley Cooper stepping into Woody’s […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
