1982 Newspaper Advertisement for the G.I. Joe Mobile Missile System

Battlegrip.com - 6 March, 2017 - 04:34
I shared a different ad for this toy back in December (posted here), but just because we’ve seen the G.I. Joe Mobile Missile System doesn’t stop me from pointing at this 1982 ad for the same toy. Hey, we’re never gonna find every single newspaper ad for G.I. Joe, so is there any reason that I shouldn’t direct your attention... Read more →

Darth Vader Collector Case and Star Wars Action Figures on Sale in 1982

Battlegrip.com - 6 March, 2017 - 03:08
Yesterday’s Strawberry Shortcake newspaper ad offered more than just berry fun. This block from that same advertisement shows us Kenner’s Star Wars action figures and the Darth Vader Collector Case on sale, and seeing this reminds me that my Action Figure Carrying Cases book still hasn’t found its way to Amazon. I should check on that. Related articles Review –... Read more →

Win R2-D2 with Hot Dog Magazine in 1983!

Battlegrip.com - 6 March, 2017 - 02:49
Hot Dog! Who else remembers this magazine from the eighties? I’d kinda forgotten that the magazine even existed, but after running across a 1983 issue over the weekend I was suddenly thrown back to the early eighties when pop culture collided with the schoolyard. The magazine feels light on content, but this contest to win a Kenner R2-D2 action figure... Read more →

Battlegrip.com - 5 March, 2017 - 04:22

Strawberry Shortcake at PlayLand in 1982

Battlegrip.com - 5 March, 2017 - 03:57
We’ve seen a few Strawberry Shortcake newspaper ads over the last week (here and here), and it should come as no surprise that a line so popular in the early eighties continues to appear in newspapers of the time. This 1982 PlayLand ad offers up a lot more than Strawberry Shortcake, but for now I’d like to direct your attention... Read more →

“Now the Realms are yours to conquer.”

Battlegrip.com - 5 March, 2017 - 02:48
TSR’s Forgotten Realms setting (find at Amazon.com*) for the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game is one of the most detailed and described imaginary worlds in existence. I do not know for certain, but I feel confident saying that tens of millions of words have been written about the Forgotten Realms since it was launched three decades ago, and I suspect...

New GWEN THE CORGI from Eric Noah @ #UrbanToyStage 2017

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 5 March, 2017 - 01:49
Making a debut at Urban Toy Stage was a NEW GWEN THE CORGI resin figure from Eric Christian AKA Eric Noah - where before we had seen the stylised stand-up incarnation of the adorable pooch, now Gwen “Sits Up” and she is again, utterly adorable! Great form and sculpt methinks, aesthetically sensitive and delightful to see, and another highlight of artworks to come out of Indonesia, IMHO. From

“No Good Deed” - That Pre-LOGAN “Deadpool2” Teaser, is now online!

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 4 March, 2017 - 13:12
”Wade and the other girls from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants plan a trip to Cabot Cove.” = NOT! The name of this short is “No Good Deed”, and it stars Ryan Reynold’s DEADPOOL in a sequence that was reported to have been a teaser playing before LOGAN the movie in the USA - which was NOT seen on Singapore screens (I was there all the way LOL) … but NOW? It’s online and not a “leaked”

Dukes of Hazzard and G.I. Joe Toys on Sale in 1982

Battlegrip.com - 4 March, 2017 - 06:28
The best part of this 1982 newspaper advertisement has to be the Dukes of Hazzard and G.I. Joe toys that are shown on sale. I wish the quality was higher, but at least we can read all of the numbers and get a feel for what these toys sold for new over three decades ago. Related articles 2005 Hasbro G.I.... Read more →

Kenner Star Wars Imperial Shuttle at Wal-Mart in 1984

Battlegrip.com - 4 March, 2017 - 05:29
I shared the Imperial Shuttle commercial a few years ago, but as awesome as those old Kenner toy commercials are, it is tough for them to compete with newspaper ads. You see, many of us saw those commercials when we were kids, but the newspaper ads like the one on p. 4 of this 1984 paper are a bit more... Read more →
