UK Toy Fair Playmobil Magnum PI
In 2022 (maybe 2021..I don't catalog such things), society came back around to embracing the solitary male mustache. As if overnight, young men began looking like the cast of Super Troopers, harkening to a bygone era of spectacular facial hair worn with extreme confidence and a puffed-up, fully hairy chest. Now Playmobil joins in this celebration, honoring one of the most iconic mustaches of all time. That of Magnum P.I., or more specifically, actor Tom Selleck.

Trick Or Treat Studios on Killer Klowns

Trick or Treat Studios Scream Greats Killer Klowns from Outer Space 8 inch figures
Despite the average horror fan's boundless love for sadistic, homicidal clowns in film, books and comics, an unforgettable film titled KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE still remained merely a "cult classic" with little merchandise to speak up. SOTA Toys, and then AMOK TIME, respectively, celebrated this alien circus of death with half a smattering of action figures so sought after that their current price tag is a bit more than a kick in the pants. Then, inexplicably, Spirit Halloween introduced a prop gun, masks, statues, and some more bits and bobs, sending us running to every nearby location to try and gobble up the lot. Even MEGO got in on the action, but still, something was missing....until now!
