The Ewok Village

The Ewok Village. Now we’re talking. This was another Star Wars toy my brother and I had. It was an awesome set. The chair set and net got a lot of play from us. The railings were super easy to lose, but we managed to keep most of them. Definitely into it.

The Millennium Falcon

As youths, my brother and I were big on Star Wars toys. We had a lot of figures, and even a few playsets. Here’s my story about the Millennium Falcon. We received this one for Christmas one year. It was awesome. You can imagine our excitement at seeing this amazingly large package under the tree. The package was big. Maybe 2’x1′. No joke. We played with this one like crazy. It had a little bit of everything. The guns, the cockpit, the chill spots in the back. Hell, it even had that secret hideaway spot. We ended up losing that piece a few months into owning it, sadly. And you could snap on the lid and just fly it around. Definite good times. A few years later, the Falcon was sitting in the basement. My dog, Hawkeye, decided it was a good thing to pee in. Then my dad threw it away. I think it was just a good reason to finally get it out of the basement. Looking back, it was a sad day. At the time, I don’t think we were phased. We had already moved on to baseball cards … Great toy.

Napalm Death and Japan’s Garamel put together 5 versions of the Gargadeath. Still hunting the original. Seller claims it there are only 100 of this, which maybe true as it was a Ningyoushi x Gargamel release This is the last version to come out. Big fan of this version as the red vinyl make the “mask face” pop Napalm Death logo on back. “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” indeed.

Mazinger Z is the standard by which all Jumbo Machinder or any huge robot is judged. This dude is nearly 24″ tall. CollectionDX has an awesome write up on him here. “Street by Street…” “For the cat…”

Pushead Conspiracy Deck

I know, it’s not a toy. But you aren’t gonna ride this, you’re gonna hang it, or lay on your bed and do pretend rocket airs in your socks, making it almost a toy. Great Pushead deck.

Kozik’s Murder Damnedron

Frank Kozik puts out a ton of toys. Most don’t make the cut for me, but this guy is one of my favorite. I am a huge fan of the Damnedron itself and each of these were hand painted by Frank and have a different blood splatter… The splatter in this sellers auction is pretty awesome, more savage than mine (shown below), which is more of a vampire style. You might be able to grab this for cheaper than it was new.
