Toys of Yesterday




Has it already been a month? Well, last time we were together, I dug up some truly random figures from the Stone Protectors line. At the end of the video there I hinted at what was coming next, claiming that much like Stone P...







Writing about toys is great, but playing with them is better. At least it was, and still is, for me. That's why I decided to write this month's Toys of Yesterday about my most beloved action figure collection that I had as a ...






In this Toys of Yesterday, I wanted to take a trip back, but not too far into the past. Many of you may remember the Zoids animation that aired on Cartoon Network's Toonami block back in 2001. Well, for those of you who do re...


Upon watching Clubber Lang in Rocky III, I didn't think a boxing villain could be any more interesting. What a quick talking, fierce character, whose only motivation is to beat Rocky at any cost. Mr. T plays that character to...

That old Masters of the Universe line does it for me, the new stuff is either too expensive or just tries to look too cool. I am all about old toys. I can't buy enough of them. I'm at a point where I want dupes. I want to hav...

By the power of Greyskull! I know these new shows might have some okay villains, but He-Man and the Masters of the Universe had some of the best villains of all time! The toys were what that show was all about. Those villains...



I know most people in their mid twenties and early thirties liked the two movies and the cartoon. If you're like me, the Ghostbusters mean something to you. I don't know what exactly, but something! I really enjoyed the two f...








It's a well established fact that I'm a giant nerd for Sonic the Hedgehog, and around the time of these figures you wouldn't have been able to part me from my Sonic comics. Unfortunately with these being a UK only set I never...


As a young girl I was quite the connoisseur of Happy Meal toys from McDonalds, as was I giant nerd obsessed with Sonic the Hedgehog. So, when they released toys for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 in the form of Happy Meal prizes it goe...

At one point or another, most everyone either owned or came in contact with Kenner's Star Wars figures when they were little. I was in that first group of owners. For most kids who owned the figures, the big deal was the Mill...

We are back with another edition of Toys of Yesterday and this is one many of you can relate to. I used to watch anime before I even knew it was from Japan but it was truly Sailor Moon that made me become who I am today. I ca...

Before I begin this Toys of Yesterday, I must apologize to all of you. The bed you see in the header above is not the Barbie Dream Bed that I have memories of owning as a kid. Unfortunately, finding a picture of it was near-i...

Growing up there are certain things that will always stand out in your mind as something you strongly remember. Going to see The Nightmare Before Christmas the day it came out back on October 29th, 1993 is something I'll neve...


What’s been great about the experience of writing for Tomopop is not only getting to write about all these awesome figures you and I see every day, but getting to dive back into my own past and realize just how appropri...

In the past, we used to have a feature on Tomopop called Less Than Three where we would talk about toys we really loved, either from the past or current releases. It's been a while since we've done one, but I've been thinking...
