    Nicko Toys

    Here will be my section where i'll show some toys i love. Obviously, there will be MOTU and POP but also others toys lines from eighties like SilverHawks, Thundercats, Rock Lords, Gobots, TigerSharks etc... I think it's the good section here, if it's not the case, i apologize. I will post general view and also close-up from my collection. I collect toys from 80s and 90s since 17 years ago. I try to found packaging in the best shape, MOC and MISB. My looses toys come from used packaging that i've opened myself. The state is very important for me. I use often protective cases like Zoloworld. So, i begin with a little part of my collection, hope you will enjoy and feel free to ask any questions

    Very impressive collection. Very interesting blog as well. Hope to see upcoming reviews, specially for European figure blisters or boxes if they are in mint condition. I always wanted to see if the Italian Fright Zone release had "La Tana Spaventosa" printed on the box.

    Thanks General Stingrad

    All of my Mumm Ra's éditions are still in my collection. I have the french card Cosmocats printed in Italy by AL.ES. It was distributed by the french toys company Orli Jouet. Among my others Mumm-Ra, i have also the english card with the black dagger variant and the second Rainbow Toys Logo. That's the card you can show in the big showcase (first pic).

    I have also a Benelux Mumm-Ra with black dagger variant. On the cardback (14 back), there is a yellow sticker for the redistribution in Germany. My card is graded by UKG 85%.

    Mumm-Ra is probably the ThunderCats toy i prefer. It's why i try to found lot of differents cards. A great packaging really. Otherwise, ThunderCats toys line is in my top 3. I've many cards : french, Benelux, U.S., Toy Options etc... It's always a pleasure to discover some variants or new éditions

    Thanks my General ! I've six or seven variants i think. It's include the Mumm-Ra "mail away" and a dark red Mumm-Ra with silver dagger. I've also an other one with the grey dagger. To my knowledge, there are three variant of the dagger : black unpainted, silver and grey. Concerning the french card for exemple and according the assortment, we will find the grey dagger or the silver. I will do a familly pic with all my Mumm-Ra

    @WaffleyMan : I wish you sincerely to realise your dream

    80's goodness with a touch of the 70's thrown in. Very nice!

    As I mentioned before, I'm really impressed about your collection, just the MIB Galaxy Rangers' Shane "Goose" Gooseman from Galoob/Rainbow is breath taking, specially since they were not commercialized in USA, even less in South America.

    There wer some cartoons that were more popular in Europe and South America that had some exclusives toys being released in those continents only; some of the ones that sometimes I seek in European eBay are:
    _Mego Style Mighty Mightor
    _Palitoys G.I.Joe's action figures (specially Toger Force exclusives)
    _Play Asterix action fgures
    _Galaxy Rangers action figures
    _Popy Ulysses 31 action figures
    _Popy Anime action figures (Space Battleship Yamato, Space Pirate Cobra, Gatchaman,...)

    Do you happen to have any of those figures?
    Thanks in advance Nicko

    Many thanks Rhanen, it's a really pleasure to discuss with you about vintage toys

    Indeed and like you, when i've discovered the Galaxy Rangers' Shane "Goose" Gooseman in english Rainbow Toys card it's was unbelievable. In fact, this toys line is very special for me : it's really difficult to imagine that the toys were never commercialized in the U.S.A. Obviously, i believe you when you write it's the case but some points call me :

    - Galaxy Rangers were distributed in France, England and Brazil for sure. And not in the U.S., the country where the toys line is born ?
    - Check this link here. You can find a lot of this Galoob cards on the web with differents figures. I don't think it's samples. Maybe another édition of the english card or a first release ? Hard to be precise...

    We can imagine that only a part of the U.S. have known the Galaxy Rangers toys, with a very limited distribution. But no Galaxy Rangers toys seems to be weird. Do you have some informations which could help me ? Many Thanks Rhanen

    - So, i remember clearly to have when i was child Tiger Force G.I.JOE. Galaxy Rangers toys were sold in France. We could found a lot of cards in our supermarkets and later in discount stores. It's show that the toys line was not a success. I'm not a great specialist about Popy toys and when they were commercialized in France, i was too young (1981 i think). I have'nt this toys in my collection except some MOC G.I.JOE as Toxic Viper, Techno-Viper and Dr Mindbender (A french card Dr Cortex). I've also a Grag Popy in italian box. If you search toys from your list i will ask if some of my french contacts sell. Hope it help you.

    @scott metzger : Many thanks scott 80s are the golden years for action figures... A paradise for me.
