Monster (Sungold 1990s)

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.

The Shadow - Ambush & Ninja Shadow (Kenner 1994)

While the sun keeps shininig outside, I've got nothing better to do than sitting inside my hall of geekness and write another toy blog entry. That's just me.

Anyway, today I wanted to shed light on another toyline I came across last weekend: The Shadow by Kenner, from 1994. The line was based on the superhero film The Shadow, starring Alec Baldwin. The character was originally created in the 1930s, by pulp novelist Walter B. Gibson.

Tales form the Cryptkeeper - Zombie & Frankenstein (Ace Novelty 1993)

Like I promised, I give my best to fill this site more often again! So, I thought it's about time for another update on Toywalker's Blog.

Last weekend I've been on the hunt again, and found some pretty cool stuff. Some very rare Hook figures, Terminator 2, El Corros (sort of Zorro knock-offs), a few The Shadow figures, and two Tales from the Cryptkeeper (TftC) figures. All MOC! I'm sure gonna review a few more of them on here. For today I wanted to start with a closer look on TftC Zombie and Frankenstein.

Mini Ninja - Tiny Visible Warriors at Your Command! (Remco 1986)

I'm so stoked holding them in my hands again, finally, after all these years. Remco's Mini Ninja were one of my favorite toys back in the days. TRU had them, along with the more popular AWA Mini Mashers. They were just 4.99 DM. My grandparents got me a set of both the Mini Ninja and the Mini Mashers. I have very good memories of these days, where I've been hanging around at my grandparents' house, playing with my Remco mini-figures all day. Yes, those were the times!
