PlaidStallions Action Figure Archives are Back!

Action-Figure-Archive-Header

Hey everyone, I’m excited to announce that I’ve finally gotten the swing of this WordPress thing, thanks to some very good friends’ advice (thank you, Robyn and Aaron).

So, I’m able to bring the Action Figure Archive  and information into a more browser-friendly format and obviously add things to them from my recent Toy-Ventures publications. This is what I love to do and I’m super excited to get back to work. Look for galleries on some of my favourite toy lines of the 70s-80s and tons from my Knock-Off Collection.

So, to kick things off, may I present the new Matchbox Fighting Furies Archive and Gallery. I honestly think this toy line is a work of art and one that needs to be celebrated, so it excited me to launch the new Archive with this one.

Look for a new update every week.

ReMastered Mego Commericals Coming Soon

 

In the “Epic News” department, former PAC Toys President Joe Ruzzi has shared his Mego Commercial reels with the Mego Museum. This allows us to see spots for the first time as they were intended and not from 17th generation VHS copy.

The first two releases are out there and wow, the sound and colors are so crisp and nice.

The Museum promises to add a new commercial every week in their Mego Museum newsletter.

We’re finally getting the Riddler in a bowler hat

EC RIDDLER (9) (1)

The MegoMuseum broke the news yesterday about this Emerald City Comic’s exclusive Riddler figure from the 1966 Batman series. Unlike past exclusive Figures Toy Company items,  ECC went all out and had a new head sculpted and it’s pretty damned righteous.

Such good deeds deserve reward:

Megolike is gone, burned to the ground thanks to Melodrama.

Websites: Gabriel Lone Ranger Archive

 

Plaidstallions hosts the web’s most comprehensive gallery of Gabriel Lone Ranger toys. It’s actually a bit bittersweet seeing as this line needs to be celebrated more, there should be dozens of websites talking about it.

Figures, outfits, playsets, foreign variants, it’s all here at the Gabriel Lone Ranger Archive. Always actively seeking submissions of items they don’t have, spread the love!
