Toys, toys and more toys. A trio of brothers get together and talk about toy lines that go back as far as the 60s, 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 102: Manglor
In 1984, the IDEAL Toy Company wanted to let the kids get new action figures and then tear them apart. The idea they would be able to put them back together was the plan, but did that work, or would it fail?
Episode 103: Beetlejuice!
Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! This week we look back at the toy line that was sparked by the 1988 movie of the same name released by Kenner Toys. Listen up and keep an eye out for the beloved Freelance Bio-Exorcist!
Episode 104: AHI World Famous Super Monsters
Spooky season and so you know we will talk all about some monsters. This year we look back at AHI's World Famous Super Monsters. This line might looks just like the REMCO and Lincoln lines, but this one is better!
Episode 105: Mummies Alive!
From Kenner we get Mummies Alive! A line that was accompanied with a cartoon to help with the story line, but this one would barley last 2 releases. The molds on this line would be the mummies saving grace.
Episode 106: Guts!
Released by Mattel in 1986, GUTS! was a series of PVC military figure line that was aimed directly at the hearts of kids! With six series of figures kids could play all day an never have the same outcome.

The Real Toys That Made Us
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! :)
