    I ate my fair share of Bazooka Joe Gum when i was a kid, so this is nice and nostalgic. Couple of quid at a boot sale.

    Imperial Godzilla for a quid at this Sundays boot. A seller had three boxes of dinosaur toys and i had a good rummage, just as i found this bad boy a bloke bought all the boxes in one go. There wasn't anything else worth having. Timed it just right :thumbsup:

    He's the mid-size 6" from 1985.

    5" wide mini Boom Box. Electronic sound, repetitive beats. Got it for 50p at a boot sale, it came with a fake chunky gold chain :thumbsup:

    I always enjoy finding a Toxic Crusader randomly out in the wild, this is 'Bonehead' and he cost me £1.50.
    Its such a fun toy line.

    Wow the Moog, you find some amazing stuff! I'm also a fan of the Toxic Crusaders. Good to see them enjoying a revival of late with the keshi and deluxe toxie figure.

    Yeah, I saw those and they look great. You can't have enough Toxie. I recently found this board game in a charity shop, complete and in good condition too. Couple of quid, lucky find.

    Yeah, I remember wandering into a large shop in Akiba when I was in Tokyo, which was exclusively model kits from floor to ceiling. It seemed like everything had its own scale model, and I mean everything. It was impressively nerdy.

    Yeah, looks to me like a cross between an Army clerk and a Trapeze artist. The fact its real cloth on a mid-size / smallish figure, its a nice touch.
