Large Size Han Solo

A long time ago for a toy store far, far away, Kenner produced a line of “Large Size” Action figures. They were produced near the standard 12″ size. This way Han Solo could date Barbie and Chewbacca could rip the arms off of Ken. Appearance: I have to say that the likenesses in Kenner’s 12″ […]

“Battlestar Galactica” (1978) was a show that helped fill the sci-fi fix I needed while waiting for Empire to come out. It had the cool ships, cool pilots and cybernetic bad guys.

G.I. Joe Weather Dominator DVD Battle Pack

GI Joe was one of the biggest of the Eighties toy line cross overs into animation. It frequently featured the new heroes and villains as their toys reached the shelves.

Regular reader will have probably realized I’m a huge Star Wars fan. What’s a little less obvious is that I have my Star Trek tendencies, as well. It’s not that I like either one more than the other, I’m not that kind of militant fan. Of all of the myriad of characters that inhabit the […]
