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!

Lincoln Monsters Flashback: Face off with the Mego Superheroes

Lincoln Monsters VS Mego Superheroes

 

Lincoln Monsters Flash Back!

From the 1976 Montgomery Ward Christmas Catalogue comes the most iconic image the toy line would inspire: an all-out battle with the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes.

Now in 2024, the Lincoln Monsters will soon be looking to spar with the 50th Anniversary releases from Mego. Who wins? We all do.

ABOUT LINCOLN MONSTERS

A vintage toy brand is rising from the grave! “Lincoln Monsters” is a new collaboration from White Elephant ToyzAbsolutely Retro and Plaid Stallions, who have joined forces to make dimestore retro monsters.

The name is inspired by the legendary knock-off toy company Lincoln International. However, Lincoln Monsters reimagines the company as a 70s third-rate film studio, making exploitation and copying horror trends.

Each Lincoln Monster release and creation will center around a fictional movie from Lincoln International Studios, premiering with The Evil of Count Dracula.

The 8″ Evil of Count Dracula figure will be on a type S body, with a look inspired by the past but retaining the LM house style.

Each Evil of Dracula figure will come in a gorgeous solid box with artwork by Chris Franklin depicting the gorey poster for the movie made to cash in on Hammer horror.

Like all good horror shows, this is a double bill as Lincoln Monsters will at the same time also release “The Power of Frankenstein,” featuring a stunning poster by Chris Franklin.

Our goal is to create well-made figures inspired by cheap knock-offs,” explains White Elephant Toyz Jason Schiermeyer who adds, “At a collector-friendly price point.”

Subsequent releases from Lincoln Monsters will include original male and female character designs that cross multiple film genres from Science Fiction, Horror and Exploitation. The fictional Lincoln studio was known to dabble in Gothic Horror, Ozsplotation, Philippine Drive-In movies and Italian rip-offs.

“Suspects are pantsless, I repeat pantsless”

Another weird way to sell unsold Mego factory seconds, both these figures are on the wrong bodies and each just has a tunic.

I love the header card with the lowest-resolution picture of Adam West they could find. Did they take a Polaroid of an old rabbit ears TV?

1976 Action Figure Explosion!

1976 Action Figure Explosion!

I got this catalogue just after Christmas, and I wanted to close the year with the single reason I had to have it. This glorious page of plastic joy.  I never saw this page as a kid, but wow, that’s how the inside of my brain looked when I was five. 

This page, with it’s triple threat of Kenner Bionic Man, GI Joe Adventure Team, and Big Jim’s P.A.C.K hit me like a gut punch but in a good way, more like a “gut hug?” is that a thing? 

I enjoyed the book even more when I found the other page with my sixth birthday present, the GI Joe Capture Copter, which also was the “Monster Squad Copter” with my Lincoln Monsters

Not to mention the Sky Dive to Danger set, another birthday present and my vote for the single greatest GI Joe set ever.

 

1976 Action Figure Explosion!

1976 Action Figure Explosion!

No Offense to fans of Johnny West but I have almost no memory of the toy line. It’s probably because of stuff like Remco Star Trek and the amazing Lazervette had all of my attention and well kind of still do…. 

 

Happy New Year!

Mini Godaikin Spider-Man Leopardon by Bandai

Mini Godaikin- Shogun Warriors Leoparden BANDAI

Mini Godaikin- Shogun Warriors Leoparden BANDAI

 

This little guy magically arrived yesterday and it became my first toy opening of 2024.

Behold the mini Godaiken of Leopardon, the giant robot from the Amazing Japanese television adaptation of Spider-Man. These appeared when I was in high school, and I immediately recognized them as Shogun Warriors. Shoguns were an unrequited toy love of my childhood, meaning I never got many but adored the comic. So, I bought a bunch throughout high school.

 

Shogun Warriors- Mattel Diecast

Shogun Warriors- Mattel Diecast

Leopardon got special meaning in the 80s when I got a bootleg tape of the Japanese Spider-Man series (I was the “bootleg tape” guy in high school/college/now) and it was like knowing an incredible secret.

I remember finding this exact figure in 1991 at a Toys R Us store outside of Toronto and immediately buying it. Sadly, all of them were lost to time, and these figures went from sitting gathering dust at Toys R Us to just OUTRIGHT disappearing.

Seriously, I’m always on the hunt; I’ve found 2 of these things, and that’s it. The bubbles are likely the most significant issue; they are “rack toy”, although the figure is still high quality.

Happy 2024, everyone; let’s fill it with good stories.

Pod Stallions 116: Burger King Onion Ring Fireside Chat

We’re not ones to dwell on the passage of time (and let’s face it, no one wants that shock to the system) but it IS hard to believe that it’s now been 60 years since two schoolteachers went to that junkyard for the trip of a lifetime, and Doctor Who began. Luckily, according to the Doctor, time is immaterial. But let’s throw caution to the wind and have a jumbo-sized PS episode celebrating Adventures Through Time and Space. It’s safe to say DW is embraced and referenced more by us than any other topic, and it’s been a long, strange journey. Reverse the polarity, Sonics at the ready, Allons-y!

Pod Stallions 116: Burger King Onion Ring Fireside Chat

If we Letterboxed our viewing habits in 2023, we’re estimating between us we’ve spent close to one full month (maybe one with 28 days) watching everything from TV series to movies, highbrow to lowbrow and all points in between. We thought it’d be fun to wind 2023 down by recommending titles to the most discerning listeners in podcastville. So it’s another fine episode of ‘What We’ve Been Watching!’ on Pod Stallions. Hope it helps!

Mego Micronauts + Superheroes = MAGNA HEROES: Vintage Mego

Vintage Mego returns with a look at the Magna Heroes, a marriage of the Micronauts and the Superheroes. It’s the one Mego Superhero line most of us never got but probably should have.

Iron Man was played by Jason Lenzi.

Special thanks to Eddy Berst and Will McGowan (@toltoys_kid) for sharing their discoveries.

LINCOLN MONSTERS BRINGS BACK THE RETRO MONSTER ACTION FIGURE

Lincoln Monsters brings back the Retro Monster action figure

Toronto, Ontario, October 31, 2023-

Lincoln Monsters

Lincoln Monsters

A vintage toy brand is rising from the grave! “Lincoln Monsters”  is a new collaboration from White Elephant Toyz, Absolutely Retro and Plaid Stallions, who have joined forces to make dimestore retro monsters.

The name is inspired by the legendary knock-off toy company Lincoln International. However, Lincoln Monsters reimagines the company as a 70s third-rate film studio, making exploitation and copying horror trends.

Each Lincoln Monster release and creation will center around a fictional movie from Lincoln International Studios, premiering with The Evil of Dracula.

The 8″ Evil of Dracula figure will be on a type S body, with a look inspired by the past but retaining the LM house style.

Lincoln Monsters

Lincoln Monsters

Each Evil of Dracula figure will come in a gorgeous solid box with artwork by Chris Franklin depicting the gorey poster for the movie made to cash in on Hammer horror.

Like all good horror shows, this is a double bill as Lincoln Monsters will at the same time also release “The Power of Frankenstein,” featuring a stunning poster by Chris Franklin.

Our goal is to create well-made figures inspired by cheap knock-offs,” explains White Elephant Toyz Jason Schiermeyer who adds “At a collector friendly price point.”

Subsequent releases from Lincoln Monsters will include original male and female character designs that cross multiple film genres from Science Fiction, Horror and Exploitation. The fictional Lincoln studio was known to dabble in Gothic Horror, Ozsplotation, Philippine Drive-In movies and Italian rip-offs.

We realized we all complimented each other and liked a lot of the same things and agreed on a vision,” explains PlaidStallion’s Brian Heiler, who adds, “This  is long term, we’re putting everything into new figures and ideas; it’s basically three guys saying “you know what would be cool?

Look for a newly revised Lincolnmonsters.com this November and the first offering of figures in Q1 2024. #retromonster
