1st Look at “LITTLE TERROR” from tokidoki x Action City @ #STGCC2017

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 18 September, 2017 - 10:04
Making their debut showcase at STGCC this year, were a quartet of figures named “LITTLE TERROR” from tokidoki, with the prototypes on display at Action City - who are also producing these cuties! Three delightful colorways and a "Clear" figure were on-show, which Simone Legno has since shared the figures’ design/inspiration to be: ”…the little ones we got (at) home break down the house just

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 18 September, 2017 - 09:25
Since my first feature (back in Feb 2017), we now get to see clearly the entire line-up of Ron English’s upcoming CEREAL KILLERS 3-inch Mini Figures! Ad what is utterly cool about these, is that the box-art is unique to each character - which means this is not a “blind box” mystery set! 12 x characters to collect, and Tenacious Toys has them up for pre-order at US$119 for a full display case of

ReSaurus MechWarrior (BattleTech) Toys in ToyFare Magazine in 2001

Battlegrip.com - 18 September, 2017 - 02:55
As near as I can determine, the ReSaurus MechWarrior toys shown below (from the June 2001 issue of ToyFare magazine) were never produced. There’s a page at Raving Toy Maniac with pics and some info, as well as this blogspot.com post with some other pics, but all signs point to these toys never existing for sale. That seriously sucks, because... Read more →

Betty Debnam’s “The Toy Story” in 1981

Battlegrip.com - 18 September, 2017 - 02:04
You could read dozens of books about toys, scan through hundreds of old magazines, and participate in the sale of toys and games at various toy shows around the world each year to learn about the sales cycle and process of making and selling toys. Or, if you don’t have that kind of time, you could always check out this... Read more →

“Super Holiday Toy Collectors’ Guide!”

Battlegrip.com - 18 September, 2017 - 01:58
Here’s a 1997 advertisement for ToyFare magazine (find at Amazon.com*) that makes me question what was happening in the world of action figures when this was new. Clearly, something was happening with Kenner’s Total Justice action figure line when this was new, but just what else does issue #6 of ToyFare hold inside?

TSR Dice Commander’s Manual 1997 Advertisement

Battlegrip.com - 18 September, 2017 - 00:26
I think it is safe to say that TSR’s Dragon Dice collectible dice game of the nineties (find at Amazon.com*) was the most popular game in the collectible dice game class when it was new, and it comes as no surprise that TSR took their experience and created a book for the game. What is surprising, though, is what the... Read more →

Experiencing "My First STGCC" @ #STGCC2017

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 17 September, 2017 - 22:22
One week ago yesterday, I attended my “first ever toycon” at the 2017 Edition of Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Con, and while I have had indeed covered the annual convention for nearly a decade (this year is their “tenth edition”) as “MEDIA” (I even covered in in a wheelchair right after-Stroke, for pete’s sake hahahahaha), THIS would be the “first time” I aim to experience the geek-fest as an “

Star Wars 15% to 30% Off at JCPenny in 1984

Battlegrip.com - 17 September, 2017 - 06:06
This ad block comes from a 1984 JCPenny newspaper advertisement that I first posted in 2015. I was searching for a Care Bears newspaper advertisement when I ran across this Star Wars action figure sale, and after realizing that I hadn’t zoomed in on and shared just the Kenner Star Wars portion of the ad, I decided to fix that...

Knickerbocker’s Dukes of Hazzard Wrist Racer in 1981

Battlegrip.com - 17 September, 2017 - 02:52
We’ve seen newspaper ads for the Dukes of Hazzard Wrist Racer toy a few times before (here and here), so today’s ad from Walmart in 1981 doesn’t exactly offer up anything new. Still, each time I stumble across an ad for the Wrist Racers I find myself asking: Just how big was this line, and has anyone attempted to create... Read more →

Shadowrun: The Trading Card Game “Size Matters” Advertisement

Battlegrip.com - 17 September, 2017 - 00:09
Coming late to the party, Fasa’s Shadowrun CCG (find at Amazon.com*) was slightly too late to capitalize on the popularity of collectible card games in the nineties. And too bad, because the BattleTech CCG — produced by Wizards of the Coast under license from Fasa — was incredible, and the Shadowrun brand was so strong in the mid-nineties that if... Read more →
