  • Are you a serious collector looking to expand your collection?

    I get emails, comments and messages all the time through my website and social media channels from you lovely lot, and this one was a particularly interesting one when it turned up just before Christmas.  I had an enquiry from a gentleman named James who used to work for the good old manufacturer BBI back in the 1990's.  James has amassed quite a collection of some now very rare and unique pieces, all pretty much in A1 mint condition that he would like to sell on to a collector who will appreciate and care for this wonderful collection of some very fine examples of 1/6th of yesteryear.  This exciting collection features no fewer than 31 'Elite Force' figures, including some prototype and engineering examples, CY Girl figures, Die-Cast Weapons Sets, Fighter Jet Cockpits... you name it.

    The entire collection is conservatively valued at £3150, so James would be looking for offers in that region and wishes to sell the ENTIRE collection as one lot and not break it into individual figures.  Postage and packaging would be additional (would recommend using a courier for this lot!) and buyer can view and collect from his home, he lives near Lancashire.

    Now, I've included some pictures in 'catalogue' format below to show you the kind of items in question and an entire inventory in PDF format which can be downloaded here.

    Any interested parties should contact myself at and I'll pass your details onto James for him to discuss further.

    Please do also share this with anyone else in the collecting community who you feel may be interested.

  • Latest 1/6th 'Round-Up'

    So, we've not posted any news for a while, and I apologise for that but trying to maintain a website and social media presence (YouTube / Facebook) as well as actually enjoying the hobby is taking it's toll!   Anyway, we've missed posting some individual news items so here is a quick round-up on some of the latest 1/6th boxed figures to be announced and available for pre-order (mostly):

    Hot Toys - MMS276 'John Matrix' Commando

    This one came out of absolutely no-where, they hadn't even teased at this, and some times those releases are the best ones.  The ones that catch you in the morning on Facebook and you think 'what the hell, where did that come from?!' - yep, this is one of those.  Anticpated release date Oct 15, at the time of writing this is not yet available for pre-order, but expect that to change any day now.  With no ideas on pricing yet, I'm speculating aound £170 - £175 for the UK markets, but I could be wrong; here's hoping he's not any more than that!

    Soldier Story - Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK)

    Soldier Story continue there very popular line of 'special forces' figures from around the globe and different theatres of combat, although I have to admit, it would be nice to see just a plain and simple 'grunt' every now and again.  This one is from the German special forces units, in head to toe Flecktarn which personally I find a little uneasy on the eye and will be pass for me, although certainly some nice gear in the set.  This one is available for pre-order now at £109.99

    Hot Toys - MMS275 TDK Rises : Lt Gordon, Blake & Bat Signal

    No real surprises that Hot Toys was going to try and milk every last penny out of this film licence, and to be honest I don't blame them.  Certainly the Dark Knight 'completists' out there will be happy to see some further additions to the collection.  This one is available as a complete set, or with the bat signal and Blake, but unfortunately no bat signal and Gordon only option... I suspect to this end, we'll see a few loose 'Blake's on the eBay shortly.  This is available for the complete set at £309.99 or £209.99 for the Blake only set.

    ACE Workshop - LRRPs Vietnam : "Bulldozer"

    Ace Works have bought to us some really fantastic Vietnam figures, and about time as the 1/6th military community was crying out for some decent Nam gear, it's only a shame that like the other manufactuers they continue to focus on 'special forces' style and not your average infantryman.  A load of nice gear in this set and I can see the uniform and boots proving to be popular as loose items as they often are.  This one is currently priced at £124.99


    So, where can you get all of these lovely releases?  Well, with the exception of the 'Commando' figure which at the time of writing is not yet up for PO, all of the above are available for our UK/EU readers from


  • Hot Toys - Winter Soldier: Black Widow (a few shots...)

    I rarely buy any Hot Toys figures these days, only certain ones that particulary strike a chord with me, or are from all time favourite movies such as Terminator franchise, Robocop etc...   I am quite a fan of Scarlett Johansson however, so when the Winter Solder version of Black Widow was announced I simply had to have it!   Here are a few shots of that latest figure, along with a couple with her new best friend, Selina Kyle... enjoy! ;)

  • DAM Toys - Russian Airborne Troops 'VDV' In Crimea

  • Hot Toys - MMS259 Guardians of the Galaxy: Gamora

    I don't tend to post news articles about Hot Toys figures, because quite frankly they get enough attention as it is and you'd have to be living under a rock to miss these announcements... However, that being said, I think more recently HT has been releasing some excellent quality female figures, and this is quite simply one of the best they've done so far in my opinion.  The likeness to the actress Zoe Saldana is amazing, and although I have no interest in the movie myself, I can really appreciate the work that has gone into this.

    If this is 'your kinda thing', it's now up for pre-order and if you're based in the UK/EU, may I recommend my good friends at Collectable Kitbash - priced at £144.99 (exc shipping).

  • DAM Toys - Marine Scout Sniper

    No full review on this for you I'm afraid, but here are a few pictures that I took to share with you all.  An excellent figure, and fantastic value too, you really do get a lot for your money and not all of it pictured here either.  I picked this one up from Collectable Kitbash for £99.99 (at the time of writing this, they still have stock!).

  • Just Sharing...

    I know I haven't published much on here recently, but with so much going on in 'the real world', my hobby has taken a bit of a back seat at the moment.  Had a few minutes last night to play around with some lighting and camera settings, and the chosen subject was Selena Kyle, one of the few HT figures I own.  Enjoy!

  • What have we been up to recently?

    Well, you may have noticed the website has been a little quiet on the news front?  That's because I've decided to a take a little break from trying to keep up with constantly churning out new reviews and update the front-page, whilst still enjoying my hobby. Don't worry, we're not going anywhere, just taking a well earned break!

    So, haven't quite got around to writing the 'written review' element of this figure, but in the meantime here is a YouTube video review of the Art Figures 'Biochemical Expert' (Nicholas Cage from 'The Rock').  Check it out, and don't forget to subscribe to the channel:

    Plus, we also did a litle did a little bit of a 'retro review' of an older Dragon figure, the WW2 German NCO 'Hans Leiter'... With a twist!  We took the existing figure and upgraded it somewhat with some careful weathering and a body/head swap-out, take a look and see if you like the results:

    Whats coming up in the near future?   Well, we've got planned a couple of video tutorials for head sculpt re-painting and one covering weathering techniques.  Stay tuned for those soon!
