ReSaurus MechWarrior (BattleTech) Toys in ToyFare Magazine in 2001 - 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 post with some other pics, but all signs point to these toys never existing for sale. That seriously sucks, because...

“Super Holiday Toy Collectors’ Guide!” - 18 September, 2017 - 01:58
Here’s a 1997 advertisement for ToyFare magazine (find at*) 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 - 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*) 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 “

FansToys FT-08 Grinder Dino Head Replacement Video Review

Tformers - 17 September, 2017 - 19:29
One more quick review from diecast on RFC Reviews tonight! FansToys recently brought out a replacement head option for their unofficial Masterpiece-style Grimlock, Grinder. This new head is modeled more closely after the look of the dinosaur mode in the G1 cartoon, giving an easy modification option for owners more inclined to that appearance. How easy? Well, diecast manages it in the space of about six minutes, and still has time for several off-color jokes in the process! Wow! Check out the video in the post below.

Dr Wu Judgement Upgraded Weapon Set For The Last Knight Voyager Optimus Prime

Tformers - 17 September, 2017 - 19:06
We have some new full color photos for an upcoming Dr Wu accessory kit. DW-M08 Judgement is a new set of sword and shield for Premier Edition Voyager Class Optimus. The new parts are made larger and more detailed, and in the case of the shield has moving parts. Both pieces are more fully decorated as well. The Weibo post showing these off doesn't give any relevant release details, but based on previous Dr Wu parts sets, this can be expected to be fairly reasonable for what it offers. Check out the full lineup of images, mirrored below.

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