Toy-Ventures: Popy World Heroes

This week’s episode is all about the greatest toys you never had as a kid, unless you grew up in Japan that is. The Popy World Heroes are an amalgamation of the Kenner Star Wars figures with the greatest TV Superheroes Japan had to offer.

I’m talking Power Rangers! I’m talking Ultra-Man and his many, many brothers and my personal favourite Kamen Rider and his arch enemies. Popy World Heroes are the kind of crazy the world needs.

Bif Bang Pow! goes all 3 3/4″ on us

If the latest shots of Twilight Zone, Big Bang Theory and the announcement of Flash Gordon are any indication, I don’t expect much 8″ product from BBP! this year.

I’m ok with this really, for a number of reasons:

1) Mego made tons of 3 3/4″ figures and I still consider these in the retro 70s wheelhouse.

2) BBP is by and large, doing a nicer job than Funko on their properties (I don’t hate Funko Reaction but let’s face it, some are better than others)

3) BBP gave us A LOT of great 8″ product over the years.

I wish they made more Doctor Who but I suspect so do they.
