https://youtu.be/zdPQO7q0XjI

Toy-Ventures returns with a look at the Super Hero Utility belts produced by Remco and me reuniting with my childhood bat belt. A toy I loved and enjoyed for a whole afternoon before it broke but I’d do it again!

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.
