Toy-Ventures: My 10 Favourite Rack Toys

To celebrate the second printing of my book “Rack Toys: Cheap, Crazed Playthings” (Coming September 10th) I’m going to do a count down of my absolute favourite dime store toys. From screen accurate Space:1999 stun guns to a pistol-packing Spider-Man, it’s a fun group of toys you probably forgot you had!

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.

 

krazy kreeps

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.

Croner Footy Heroes

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.

Vintage Mego Hall of Justice Playset

intage Mego this week looks at the Hall of Justice Playset for the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes Toy Line. This deluxe Mego playset came out in 1976 when the Superheroes were the hottest action figure lines going.

The Hall of Justice was not in the comics at the time, just the Super Friends animated show. We look at the Legion of Superheroes prototype, the Green Lantern appearance, discuss its translocator feature, and talk about that other Hall of Justice Playset Mego made that year.

Mego Planet of the Apes General Ursus added to Mego Museum

The Only Good Human is a Dead Human!
General Ursus added to the Mego Museum 2021 GalleriesMego Planet of the Apes 2021

General Ursus joins Caesar in Mego’s wave 13 assortment of characters. Technically Ursus was a figure in the classic Mego Planet of the Apes but this is not exactly a straight reproduction of that figure. Mego took the classic Ursus/Urko (More on that debacle in the classic Mego Planet of the Apes galleries) and added paints and details to make the figure match James Gregory’s Ursus from “Beneath the Planet of the Apes”.

Hasbro Super Joe added to Plaid Stallions Action Figure Archive

Hasbro Super Joe

Hasbro Super Joe

Added some new pics and information to our Hasbro Super Joe page at the Action Figure Archive.

I have a real fondness for this short-lived but unique toy line by Hasbro, most people at the time didn’t even realize it was supposed to be G.I. Joe, this is mainly because he’s eight inches tall. 

G.I. Joe was getting killed by smaller competitors like Big Jim and the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes, so they shrunk him down to Mego size and sent him to space. What resulted was a fun toy line that just sold well for the first year thanks to Star Wars but laid an egg in the second, thanks to Star Wars toys finally landing on shelves.

So come celebrate the Adventures of Super Joe, The Shield, Darkon and Gor, King of the Terrons in the Hasbro Super Joe gallery.

Also, if you have something I don’t and want to share it, drop me a line, I love adding to these pages!

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.
