Butch and Sundance: The Early Days

Kenner Action Figures

Butch and Sundance: The Early Days was the first of the modern-day prequels (this one to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). 
Tom Berenger and William Katt do a good job as Butch and Sundance, and at times Katt's resemblance to Robert Redford is uncanny. Likewise when Berenger wears his hat just so. Joining them are Peter Weller as LeFors (who ends their first encounter by saying ominously, "I'll see you again"), Brian Dennehy as a rustler out for revenge, Vincent Schiavelli as a casino guard, Paul Price (late of Lester's "The Ritz") as a stingy butcher, and John Schuck and Christopher Lloyd as a couple of bumbling outlaws. 

Kenner wanted to jump into western action figure toys and the line really is pretty nice, although small.  The figures included "quick draw" action - levers on the backs that could be flicked to make their right arms swing up with pistol drawn.

Toys in the Attic - Toy archive - Remco Mini Monsters

Remco is truly a company we miss today. Back in the 70's and 80's they were known for making some of the most iconic toys of their time; Lost in Space, The Karate Kid, The Monkees, McDonaldland Characters, Sgt. Rock, and so many more.
Today Remco brands are highly sought after by collectors, and the Universal Studios based monsters are no exception to that rule.
In 1979, Remco released the Universal Studios Mini Monsters, or as they are known on the package as, Universal City Studio's. No, there's no monsters on the end of that name. Instead each character's name made up the remainder of the title, I.E. Universal City Studio's Dracula, and so on.
The line was a massive success for the company, so much to the point that they made not one, but two variants of each 3 3/4 inch figure. The first variant is an obvious one - It glows in the dark. Much like the first variant, the second variant also glows in the dark. The only change is to the package which now sports a glowing green border around where the figure is encased.
We get that Remco was looking to capture the iconic creatures of Universal Studios, and for all intents and purposes they did. However for a line so popular, it would have been fantastic to see some other characters released, not necessarily limited to Universal Studios based monsters. Ones that immediately come to mind are Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Invisible Man and The Bride of Frankenstein - Just to name a few.

Toys in the Attic - Toy archive - The Infaceables

The Infaceables or "Mystic Warriors of Change" battle each other in the war for control of the earth.
The forces of good are lead by Iron Lion the courageous who battles Tembo the leader of the forces of the dark side. The figures have faces which change from man to beast. When you extend the upper portion of the body, air would inflate and deflate the rubber face completing the transformation.
The Figures are near impossible to find loose with a fully functioning face as it was made of thin rubber which easily tore or degraded. Figures are 6" in height and were packaged with an exclusive weapon as well as a belt which was the same for all the figures.
There were 3 vehicles released which were originally designed to be included in the Blackstar figure line from a few years prior. The vehicles had an action feature of their own and can be very tough to find.
This figure line was also known in Italy as "Bestioids".

Pulp Fiction Select Wave 1 Figures From Diamond Select Toys (Butch, Jules & Marsellus Wallace)

Pulp Fiction Select Wave 1 Figures From Diamond Select Toys (Butch, Jules & Marsellus Wallace)

Available for pre-order shortly

Say What again, I dare you! The long-awaited first series of 7" figures based on the Quentin Tarantino classic Pulp Fiction movie are finally up for pre-order. Diamond Select Toys had initially shown these figures off several years ago at Toy Fair, but they got delayed due to studio red tape. The first wave will include Butch Coolidge, Jules Winnfield and fearsome mob boss Marsellus Wallace.
Each figure will come with 16 points of articulation and character specific accessories. Each figure will also come with a movie specific diorama piece. Jules will include the room where the big shootout takes place, while Butch and Marsellus each come with a piece of sidewalk from their chase scene! I guess they won't be bringing out the gimp with these.
For those wondering about Vincent Vega, he should be coming in the second wave if all goes well. Look for the first wave to be released in September

Mcfarlane "Walking Dead" 2017 Releases

The Walking Dead TV Series 5" Negan & Glenn Deluxe Box Set

Now you can re-create that iconic scene from the AMC Walking Dead TV series where Negan beats Glenn to death with his baseball bat "Lucille". Surprisingly there doesn't seem to be any blood splatter included with these 5" figures from McFarlane Toys, but I wouldn't be surprised if some kind of variant set with that is coming. Maybe the Glenn figure will have a crushed skull just for added realism.

Despite the lack of blood, this set will include assault rifles, pistol, watch, knife, and of course the "Lucille" baseball bat. Look for it to be released August 2017.

McFarlane Toys Walking Dead AMC TV Dwight Action Figure
