Star Trek Toy Restoration

In the 70s Dinky toys released a number of die-cast toys linked to popular TV shows. Toys included Thunderbird 2 and an Eagle from Space 1999.

Star Trek Comics

Anyone else collect Star Trek comics during the 80s and 90s?? I had a set of Gold Key Comics from the 60s & 70s but for me the 80s and early 90s were by far the best. I enjoyed the writing and the artwork- there were also plenty of TOS stories to choose from. I've... Continue Reading →

Definitely has the same feel to it. It seems fitting that the first poster and last in the Skywalker Saga should... Continue Reading →

Memories of past Cons…..

Whilst having a sort out I came across a box full of old Con passes which triggered lots of (mostly) good memories. I don't have all my passes as some were nothing more than a paper band. I think the earliest one pictured is bottom left. Its for Rising Star #1 which was in either... Continue Reading →
