Newton, October 5, 2016

Mystery Minis Horror Series Sam from Trick r’ Treat 2 Inch Scale By: Funko $5.99 We’re on something of a Funko kick during the 31 Days of Halloween although it’s not necessarily by design. Funko has just been at the forefront the past few years with spotlighting horror toys and that’s exactly what we have for you today. It’s another figure from their Mystery Minis line, we covered Freddy Krueger from that series earlier this week.

Newton, October 4, 2016

ReAction (Horror Series) Michael Myers 3 3/4 Inch Scale By: Funko $10.00 As we continue our walk down the long and winding road to Halloween, what better way than to spotlight the masked maniac from the movie Halloween?

Funko Mystery Minis Freddy Krueger Review

Newton, October 3, 2016

Mystery Minis Horror Series Freddy Krueger 2 Inch Scale By: Funko $5.99 The 31 Days of Halloween continue with a look at Funko's Mystery Mini version of the man who provided A Nightmare on Elm Street. I'd say he probably provided a lot of nightmares elsewhere too. But now here he is in a tiny, fun little desktop toy. I've held onto this little guy for about a year, just so I could review this figure (and several of his friends) in our Halloween Countdown.

Blair Witch Movie Review

Newton, October 2, 2016

Blair Witch 2016 Directed by Adam Wingard Starring James Allen McCune and Callie Hernandez In Theaters Now I wanted to like Blair Witch. I really did. I wouldn’t call myself a “die hard” fan of the original, Blair Witch Project, but I still contend that it’s one of the most inventive and deeply chilling horror films of all time. While it may have more or less kickstarted the “found footage” genre, it made smart choices.

Happy Birthday El Santo

Newton, September 24, 2016

Today marks the 99th birthday of famous Mexican wrestler, lucha libre pioneer, movie star, pop culture icon and much more... El Santo! El Santo wasn't just a fantastic luchador, he managed to capture the imagination of a country. Santo went on to star in comic books, dozens of feature films and on television. He played everything from a detective to a monster hunter, always with a certain class, panache and a penchant for beautiful women.

MattyCollector is DEAD!

Newton, July 21, 2016

We're gathered here to day to remember MattyCollector.com, the Mattel ran website which started in 2008 as an exclusive home to Masters of the Universe Classics. Yes, Mattel is finally ending this 8 year experiment. I remember being excited for the launch of this new website, which at the time I suspected would compete with HasbroToyShop.com as a sort of "go-to" for collector items of 80's nostalgia brands.

I have an Instagram

Newton, July 13, 2016

Well, after years of not really even understanding what Instagram was... I've finally added one. Yes, I already have a Twitter (@NewtonGimmick) and a Facebook page (Infinite Hollywood on Facebook), but now I have an Instagram too. The Instagram will likely be of the most interest to people who enjoy this website, because it combines most of the things I enjoy about Twitter (quick interaction) with a lot more focus on toys.

Tales From The Toy Aisle: Target in 2016

Newton, June 8, 2016

I promised we'd be back to posting regularly and what better way to get back into things than with a Tuesday edition of TALES FROM THE TOY AISLE! This week, we venture into the land of controversy, Target! What sort of toys do they have on their shelves? Come inside and let's take a peek! We start things off with this sort of crazy looking Hulk bop ball. I don't really know what a bop ball is, but it looks like you inflate it and then punch it a bunch.

We're Back - June 2016 Edition

Newton, June 7, 2016

I actually started this blog back in June of 2007. So June of 2016 seems like a good time to get back into the thick of things, no? He lives! Yes, this blog is still around. I apologize for my general laziness, but once you really get out of the "blogging mode" it's very tough to get back into it. Not that I haven't wanted to do some reviews, post up new content, etc. I am always thinking of doing it.
