Toy-Ventures: Lincoln International Big Bad John

Toy-Ventures this week talks about Big Bad John, the rarest Lincoln International figure out there and a relatively new discovery. A generic bad guy figure for your Mego Starsky and Hutch figures. One of the best things online toy communities can do is work together and discover new things. The story of Big Bad John is one of those times that you’re proud to be part of seomthing.

Meet Frank, Dolly girl and The Terror from Beyond Space!

Merry Christmas from PlaidStallions Toy-Ventures.

Action Figure Archive Updates- Buck Rogers- Bugmen – Krazy Kreeps

Plaid Stallions Action Figure Archive

PlaidStallions Action Figure Archive

Been spending a lot of time updating the Plaid Stallions Action Figure Archive and have a few fun updates thanks to some awesome people helping me out.

Let’s dig in shall we?

Our newest page to the Action Figure Archive is the Krazy Kreeps. Krazy Kreeps are a unique find, they are essentially a knock-off of a knock-off! The figures mainly use the bodies and heads from the AHI World Famous Super Monsters brand, which was already a Mego Knock Off. There is a morbid little detail with the Krazy Kreeps that would not fly today.

Croner Buck Rogers Gallery now has Twiki thanks to Clam’s ToyBox. These weird Australian figures have stymied me for years and now I have to wonder if there is a fourth figure. It’s just great to see all of them in one place. 

Croner Buck Rogers, Tiger man and Twiki

Speaking of Croner, my friend Will (@toltoyskid) turned me on to the Footy Heroes, figures of Australian Rugby players. I don’t normally have much to do with sports figures but I need to know what else they made. Also, I have no idea who these guys are.

New update to the Bugmen of Insecta page, thanks to Clam’s Toybox. These vehicles are super rare, I wasn’t sure they ever got made.  A truly obscure 80s toy line that deserves more attention.

Issue 4 of Toy-Ventures magazine is now shipping, it’s full of cool toys from the 60s, 70s and 80s, get it while it’s hot!

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.
