Starlog Magazine Now Free Online

Battlegrip.com - 21 December, 2014 - 11:19
This is one hell of an amazing resource and time machine. archive.org has Starlog from the first issue and running through . . . well, I’m still exploring and am not completely sure where it stops. For an idea of just how awesome this truly is here’s a screenshot of a two-page spread in #23 (from 1979). You’re going to... Read more →

Mezco’s Exclusive 1:12 Batman Starts Shipping in January!

Battlegrip.com - 21 December, 2014 - 07:32
While looking at the X-Ray view of Batman (at Action Figure Insider) I soon found myself looking at the Mezco exclusive variant of the toy; not because I want the variant, but mainly out of curiosity to see if it was still available for pre-order. Well, not only is the exclusive still available, but the Mezco page gives us a... Read more →

Strawberry Shortcake Overview at The Toy Box

Battlegrip.com - 21 December, 2014 - 06:10
I’d always known that Kenner’s Strawberry Shortcake toys of the eighties had a lot of options, but I’d not quite realized just how deep the line was until recently. The dinosaur Fig Boot, for example, is something I didn’t even know existed until reading the Toy Box overview of Strawberry Shortcake toys. What’s even more stunning is that I’m now... Read more →

Affiliate Link – A Long Time Ago

Battlegrip.com - 21 December, 2014 - 05:33
Subtitled Growing up with and out of Star Wars, A Long Time Ago* is one of those sorta books that I’ve just got to try. Along the same lines as Collect All 21!* and Collect Them All!*, the book is more of an autobiographical text than a factual account of the Star Wars phenomenon. I’ve not yet received my copy...
