End of an Era

Posted in horror, news, Technology, Toys with tags on March 14, 2018 by chrisdsav

Toys R Us is going out of business.

Big news for Horror sci-fi and fnatasy toy fans video game collectors and more.

After months of speculation and financial trouble in the bankruptcy process, the once-frequented toy store chain is closing up shop.

On NPR just an hour ago , Toys R Us alerted employees Wednesday that the store’s parent company would be closing all of its United States locations or selling them. The news comes just hours after the company announced plans to close all of its United Kingdom stores.

The information came from an anonymous source, NPR said, as the company has yet to file an official liquidation, publicly at least. That source said they’re unaware how long it would be before stores start shutting down.

Toys R Us, founded in 1948 at Children’s Discount Supermarts, was the go-to place for generations of kids looking to pick up the latest toy or video game. At one time, Toys R Us was a cultural phenomenon, and people knew the company’s name from shopping sprees on gameshows to the can’t-miss appearance of Geoffrey the giraffe.

With my local store there has barley been any employees to find help with.

Stores have already started closing as part of an earlier wave of shutdowns, so expect an official filing in the coming days.

Sectaurs – Warriors of Symbion

Posted in 80s, horror, Monsters, Toys with tags , on January 29, 2018 by chrisdsav

Death and Taxes are the only two things in life that will always happen and if there was a third it be boys love bugs. I know my son owns Hermit Crabs ( I know ‘not a bug) and loves Insects. In 1985 I never had a chance to buy these guys and I was always in love with the toys.

The commercials had their own story that ran alongside the He-Man Power of the Sword Movie when it first premiered and I was more interested in Sectaurs than I was learning He-Man had a twin sister. In 1990 I discovered the comic book by Marvel inthe 25c bin of my local comic book store. but still never the toys. Now so many years later I have at long last discovered this amazing new kickstarter,  They are only producing the two main core figures for now but lets hope we may one day see the rest of these awesome toys return.

Sectaurs is making a comeback with an all new line of modern 1/18 scale action figures!
