Toy-Ventures Magazine gets Post Apocalyptic with the Tonka Steel Monsters

Tonka Steel Monsters- Toy-Ventures

Tonka Steel Monsters- Toy-Ventures

I think one of the best parts about working with vintage toys is, you get to play with them while you do it. Case in point, at the mid-point of researching the line, I got inspired to emulate the incredible energy that Chris Franklin put into issue 11’s cover, and I must admit that it was cathartic.

Little off-shoot projects like this are something that charge my mental batteries. It no longer feels like work in any way.

 

Tonka Steel Monsters- Toy_Ventures Magazine

I didn’t have the Steel Monsters as a kid because they came out too late for me, but I remember thinking, “I’m gonna buy all of this stuff someday!” and well, someday is now. Issue 11 features a cover story on the Tonka Steel Monsters toy line; if you pre-order through us, I’ll add a Metal Face air freshener, absolutely free (It smells like grapes!)

More reveals of Issue 11 later in the week.

Photoshop fun with the Mego planet of the apes toys

Photoshop fun with Mego Planet of the Apes!

Mego Planet of the Apes Jail - Toy-Ventures magazine

Mego Planet of the Apes Jail – Toy-Ventures magazine

Working on issue 10 of Toy-Ventures Magazine, and for no good reason, I thought it might be fun to try and recreate the artwork of the beautiful accessories boxes. I am something of an impulsive creature.

My first attempt is the Planet of the Apes Jail, a silly toy with an awesome box. I had a few limitations with this one, like the Jail on the box differs from the toy. Also, you can get only so much dynamic action from a type 1 Mego figure, but I got close enough to share.

Mego Planet of the Apes Jail - Toy-Ventures magazine

Look for Issue 10 of Toy-Ventures at the end of May; it will continue our Mego apes coverage and a mind-blowing amount of toy goodness.
