Found this at a Christmas fair jumble sale today...
I just saw it there all closed up, and wanted it straight away before i even knew what it was!
Then the lady at the stall told me it was a bread bin!? I automatically decided it was the perfect bread bin for my new house!!

It cost me £2! And after a little internet research it’s actually called a 'Brushed Aluminum Armadillo Bread bin’ and is sold on Amazon for £68 so was the ultimate bargain!
The lady at the stall said it was the Sydney Opera house...but obviously the company that made it says it is an armadillo so we will go with them...

However, I thought it looked more like a DR WHO ‘Cybermat’ and is one of the reasons I had to get it!

And for no reason other than scale, check it next to Megazord, great size for the kitchen!

More toxic updates coming soon!

I am aware this blog is becoming VERY GI-Joe orientated, ?(I am trying to keep it switched up...its just that GI-Joe's have become allot easier to get a hold of in Britain since the movie came out!)
But these two guys today, loved them, and a free coming! 'arrrruuuuuuffff!'
Send my deposit thru tomorrow for my new house, so once everything is unpacked (at the minuet its all in the boxes as you guys have seen!) and then I can start rummaging through containers and find some more stuff to post on the blog so sorry for the lack of actual vintage weird toys in here, but there will be more coming very soon!
Watch this space....

FINALLY a toy shop has opened near my house (usually I have to travel into town, just to find the most minimal amount of toys, and 'toys r us' is a good 2 tram rides away) but no longer will I have to take such an adventure just to have a browse at what’s new in the world of toys and action figures, cause last week 'SMYTHS Toy Superstore’ opened!
so not much to say apart from I have waited years for a new toy store to open up were I live, and now there has been, so will be a regular visitor! Also, it doesn’t close until 11pm at night! (As the sign outside suggests) so it means I can go in late after work! Good news all round :P
(I apologise for the quality of pictures inside the shop…had to be a little covert with taking, pictures there was a lot of customers walking around lol)

I was happy to find al there GI-Joe section was on offer, so bagged a few other figures and vehicles I needed for my collection, I especially love beach head, and the timber wolf figure that comes with this variant of snake eyes!
Also picked up Beach-head and rollbar with the snarler Cycle, an Ice Viper soldier and a Mantis Attack Craft with an Aqua Viper Officer, and i love the red visor helmet he comes with!

Also, I got this complete Dr.Mindbender of eBay very cheap! Great condition too with all his accessories in tact!

Also...waited for this guy of eBay for over a month! The seller was very good though, and sent me a second one when the first one never showed up (he is still out there somewhere?!) It’s Decimator from VR Troopers, one of the much rarer figures that as far as I am aware is only available in America, so really glad to finally have him in my VR Troopers collection...

The figure itself is great, very sturdy, and stands up nicely, the way the function works, is there are 4 swords, 2 go in his hands and the others fire from his chest, but they are all fireable, it reminds me a lot of the Kenner Terminator figures that had similar functions

Also his helmet looks great… I love space armour mutant robot fighters!

Finally, still packing for the move (man...I have loads of toys cant wait to get them all displayed, and reviewed for you guys here!)
But thought I would take a couple of pics for the blog...

Boglins...I have a box of the smaller brighter varients too, but could not find them to hand when I took this...

Monster in my pockets...I am close to owning all the monster in my pockets, everything from space aliens, to wrestlers, but these original ones will always be my favorite!

and finally, thought these mad balls would make a nice pic for the sight...

Not much to say about this apart from I bought it from a craft shop in town and love it! its to write lyrics for the album I am working on with Flex Digits (
Its 'Adventure rap' imagine if ‘golden axe’ if it was a hip hop album and there you have it, the Album will be out January and has a host of names from up and down the country and from the U.S too!
anyway...this post isn’t about music, it is about the book I bought to write the lyrics in, it looks like a really cool old spell book but its plain inside so you can write or draw in it, and its small enough to fit into the palm of my hand for penning on the go!
Anyway, I put wilykat with it to show you the size!

Found this guy today, and holy shit he is wicked!
Behold....the Mega Mammoth!!
Found him in TK.MAXX amongst all the random jumble of Christmas toys they have there, they had a few other dinosaurs, but all were in boxes half the size of this one and for £7.99 I wasn’t leaving him there no way (I am a big fan of mammoths)

he is huge, like 16" and looks amazing with the chap mai cave men, he took about a minuet to assemble from the spru he came on, and all locks in together real tight with no glue needed, which is always handy!

he does need a lick of paint, but I will sort that when I move into my new house and give u all an updat43ed picture, the one on the box looks brilliant, so will follow that color scheme I think, not too bad at model painting actually, so should look brilliant in pride of place painted when I move in the new toxic figure fortress!

Found another one in my stuff while packing...were the fuck do these guys come from?! lol either way i love em...enjoy!


As you may know, I am moving house in the next couple of weeks (hopefully next fortnight)
And I am currently in the stages of packing my toy collection away, so just thought I would share some pictures of the stuff I am boxing up!

Something I was really happy about is finding these out...

Talking robot cop and terminator, and 2 talking tales from the crypt dolls!
these were actually mine as a child, and I haven’t seen them since I was like 11 years old, was a heart warming feeling to find them out again, and will give them pride position in my toy room when I get in the new place!

Also, check out the turbo man! Forgot I had him, turbo maaaaaan!

Not much to say apart from i got the most amazing T.Shirt today, propper love it!!!!

Anyone who knows me (or checks this blog) will know my affinity for dinosaurs and anything prehistoric, and cave men barbarians are no exception!
as for Chap Mei, I am a HUGE fan, I think out of ALL of the action figures out today, they are killing it as the top toys for ideas and detail,
From what I know (and this is simply from my experience of seeing these guys progress)
they started out in the cheapest of bargain bins, then progressing to pound land and Wilkinson’s, but today I find them in the early learning centre, especially the Jurassic park style play sets, and that’s what these guys are, play sets, you can either buy the individual figures, or a huge play set, usually containing, a vehicle, a dinosaur, part of a castle, and more guns and missiles than any one child could loose,
And not only this, but they seem to have tapped into nearly EVERY genre, everything from sea life emergency rescue, too mummies tomb scorpion raiders (I am making these names up, they will have proper names :P )
but I am fascinated with these figures, I have ALOT of them...I have got S.W.AT team recon troops, space aliens, Tarzan Jungle Warriors, all the way to Cyber Ninja Assassins (there I go again making up names :P )
I will be posting the other chap mei figures I have up on here soon, but for now i just wanted to concentrate on these guys I got from Sainsbury’s during the half price sail, they are called 'Stone Age Dinosaurs'...

And I love them! I love the bone helmets, i love the crude weapons forged from dinosaur jaws and terradon wings, and I just think everything about them is so unique and imaginative,
They also reminded me of 'dino riders ice age' figures, which I love but own none of :(

I have took lots of pictures of these guys so u can see the heads up close and stuff, not much to say about them, they speak for them selves!

Also got these two space chap mei figures on the same day, wasn’t as impressed with them (and are allot bigger than the standard chap mei size) but had to grab them for £1 each!
they have strange spiked light saber’s, and both light up when u press the button on there belts, the black and red one with silver chest (I am presuming he is the bad guy) even has a removable hat…

Also, this is nothing short of an AMAZING find my dad got at a car boot this Sunday, along with a couple other manta force ships and bases, all complete with there missiles and soldiers, soooo rare to find these with all the pieces together, and I think I will add this evil ship to my toxic figure collection! (and i apologise for the dust on this thing not had a chance to give it a whipe was too exited to get it on the blog! must have been in somebodys attic for years!)

Dehidrated, Anorexic roadkill man update…

i have Been real busy this week, so not really had a chance to put anything on the blog, I have picked a couple new figures up though so will be up on here shortly! but I did however get a comment on my 'road kill' post...

from a really cool guy called Bubbashelby who runs an amazing toy review blog, old and new toys, check him out at
Well he left a comment saying he had seen the Anorexic dehydrated road kill victim on another page, so obviously I checked the link to find this....

(this guy 'babo prisoner figures' has some AMAZING figures, was really jealous looking thru his stuff, especially all his rubber figures, got sum great stuff, deffo check him out!

I was like OHHH SHIT! Couldn’t believe there was a whole series of these guys, and weirdest thing is I actually remember having the guy in blue shorts who is hung up by his wrists (thing he was from a cheap Skegness gift shop when I went on holiday at around 8 years old)
But was great to see a set of 6!!
Looks like some of them used to have window suckers on there backs, and it also looks like most of them are torture chamber/dungeon victims left to hang, and die in the case of the skeleton guy :O.....

Also, check the other stuff he has got on there, some great rubber figures that I am sure anyone who checks the blog will appreciate!

And I just wanted to give another HUGE thanks to Bubbashelby from toyriffic for the link to the figures and urge everyone to check his blog right away!
