Hedorah mask

 Not too much to say about this except that those rubber strings you remember from these masks are still a huge pain.

Hedorah shelf.

For years now I have tried to not have "display" shelves of just toys anymore . I like to mix what's on my shelves so its not exclusively a toy shelf but a mix of the things I like but these hedorahs look so good together I have decided to jump back into having a solo toy shelf.

My hero returns.

Over the years there have been times when I lost or sold off my active toy collection . I am now very slowly working on collection 5.0 .  

This remco Warrior beasts figure was my favorite figure when I was young . This guy was my hero character , he was way more interesting looking than He man and didn't come with a premade back story to stand in the way of my imagination. I am very happy to have him back in my possession. 


This time around with my toy collection Im going to be a lot more mindful about what I'm buying and only buy things I really want to have instead of trying to buy everything just to add bulk to the collection. This last picture was taken years ago with with toys from collection 4.0. I still need to replace this green version of this godzilla figure.


I would like to thank my Friend Tony from the 2 minute toy break blog  for a recent gift box of goodies that really kicked me back into the collecting mood after a number of years away.

Improving a cheap Aliexpress toy.

 I bought this very cheaply priced Kaiju figure from Aliexpress. I was less than impressed with it when it finally arrived  looking like an angry tootsie roll.


So a little dry brush and bam . 





Now it looks more like the Mattel Godzilla gang version I had as a kid in the 70's but better.


and he looks a lot closer to the extremely expensive action figure version.

Ultraman Kanegon

I have found myself drawn more and more to the Kaiju style monster toy as of late. Though this truly isn't a real Japanese Kaiju toy it was inexpensive and fits in well.

Ultraman is a treasure trove of goofy Japanese monster goodness .Traditionally the Kaiju toys are pretty expensive for what they are but I have found that the Ultraman toys on Aliexpress are very inexpensive. Now if I could just find a cheap Hedorah.....

Signal head monster

 I believe this creature is inspired by the work of Trevor Henderson .If you are not familiar with the work of Trevor Henderson I highly recommend checking it out. 



On a completely different subject has anybody else noticed that blogger just puts the images in whatever order it feels like now?

Roblox Imagination Collection Clawed Companion

 A cute and very different figure. He comes with no back story whatsoever but I like to think he might be friends with the Zoltar machine from the movie Big.



I'm sure that this will not interest most people because  its not the 1000th repainting of a 40 year old toy but for me the different first time figures are what's interesting. I figure if I have owned He Man , Superman ,Batman, Snake Eyes , the ninja turtles or any of the dramatically overused characters once then thats pretty much enough of that character for me. I like to see new and creative creations that have nothing to do with big business nostalgia.

Roblox Imagination Collection - Lucky Gatito

 I know nothing of the Roblox game but I do know I like lucky cats and Spaghetti westerns so this guy just called to me.















Its been a good long time since I did a post like this. I've been working out life stuff the past couple of years and taking pictures really just stopped being a thing I did.  I'm really hoping to get that started again. I can't really go out and buy a lot of new stuff but something doesn't need to be new in order to take cool pictures of it. I can just say up front that you will not see the newest Masters of the universe , Marvel legends ,GI Joe or star wars figures here but I do think I can dig up something now and then to take cool pictures of.

Cryptozoology autographs

 **This post was originally posted in 2020 while my blog comments where still being sent to parts unknown .Im reposting it now with updates .***

I'm a huge fan of the strange and weird so naturally Im very into cryptozoology. Recently I decided I wanted to get the autographs of all my favorite cryptozoologists and so far I'm only lacking one from that list (Josh Gates if you are reading this I'm coming for you)  . If you have ever watched any show about any cryptids then you will likely recognize at least one or two of these guys. 


Loren Coleman




Ken Gerhard





Lyle Blackburn 




Frank Feschino Jr.




Also in the same book ( The Braxton County Monster )I now have the signature of Stanton Friedman . Stanton Friedman  was pretty well known from pretty much any show about UFOs .He Sadly passed in 2019
