Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Bucky O' Hare, Cow-Boys of Moo Mesa, Cyboars, Earthworm Jim... Street Sharks, Dinosaucers, and Extreme Dinosaurs... If you take a look at the kind of stuff that came out throughout the 90s, you'll come to the conclusion that mutants, especially cyborg mutants, were pretty popular during this time period. The 90s were also heyday for all sorts of cheap knock-off toys jumping the bandwagon.

You probably know, that I've gotten into resin art toys. One of my favorite artists these days is Lee Burbridge, the mastermind behind BigManToys. He's got famous for his Treegarr figure, which is nominated for the year's best resin piece at the Clutter Designer Toy Awards. Treegarr is a sick figure, and I hope it gonna win! (Even though "toy awards" don't mean a thing to me.) But I tell you what. The piece I got from BigManToys in the mail today is sicker! It's called Homophobos, from the Battle Gaze line, Lee's early creative period.

We've already seen those great Marvel & DC mash-ups, and Wrestling bootlegs in the last entry. I found these in the huge market halls on Tenerife that are rammed with the cheap and most toxic China stuff. So as I got high on cheap plastic fumes while rummaging around in those gigantic boxes for the cream of the crap, this weirdo was suddenly looking at me:

Wow, I'm getting lazy again! Almost 4 weeks went by since my last update?! Tempus fugit! About time for another entry! Well, let's see what we got ... Actually loads of toys that're waiting for getting reviewed on here. Maybe I should just start writing entries on more than just one toy or toyline at a time. How about that? And I'm totally in the mood for reviewing some garbage today!

Thanks to my friend Rainer Engel (yes, the comic artist!), I recently got my fingers on a complete set of Sungold's Monster. I'm superexcited, since I've been after these dudes for quite a while now.
Monster is a Universal Monsters bootleg line, and was assumingly released in the early or mid 90s. There's no year shown on the cardback. But the design of the figures and the artwork look totally 90s to me, and at some points remind me of the Toxic Crusaders action figures by Playmates.
