Toys, toys and more toys. A trio of brothers decided to get together and table about old toy lines from the 70s-90s, also refered to as 'their childhoods'.
Episode 101: Action Jackson
Straight from the early 70's we get MEGOs first run of action figures, Action Jackson. At 8-inches these figures were just smaller than the first GI Joes, but was never able to stand-up to them in sales or accessory count.
Episode 051: Lost World of the Warlord
Join the brothers as they venture into the Lost World of the Warlord and discuss this toy line from Remco in 1982. These were made to play along with Masters of the Universe, we feel like we've seen these before.
Episode 052: Warrior Beasts
Another trip through the REMCO lands of knock off MOTU figures, but this time for the bad guys. The Warrior Beasts were set to the be evil side of the Warlords but sadly this line would not last longer than a year.
Episode 053: Happy Meal Toys [1985-89]
Remember all those Happy Meal Toys you got when you were a kid, but have no idea where they are now? Yep, we talked more about some of the best Happy Meal Toys from the golden age of Happy Meal Toys. Those 1985-89, yep we got Cosmic Changeables this time!
Episode 054: Golden Girl and Guardians of the Gemstones
More MOTU companion toys, but this time from the company that brought you Micro Machines; Galoob gives us Golden Girls and the Guardians of the Gemstones. A whole action figure line that *sorta* fits with your MOTU toys, but seems to be just a bit too tall.
Episode 055: Shogun Warriors
When Mattel decides to import robots from Japan and put them all under one main toy line, you get Shogun Warriors. This week we learn how the Shogun Warriors line formed and evolved from die-cast to plastic and made it into the American homes.

Found this show because of the Cross the Streams Media. Became a subscriber because of the content. Great show, great hosts and great information. 5 Stars.
I just wrote a review here which I thought I was writing on the Movie Retakes podcast but I was in the wrong place, my bad. That said, Toy Rewind is also amazing and always a great listen! :)
