Hello boys and girls! I just wanted to let all you gaming fans know about my friends video game streaming channel, Fueled By Gaming. The channel is family friendly and good clean fun. I may be joining in on some of the live episodes, so check it out when you get a chance. They usually stream on Tuesday and Thursday nights.
The Z-Bots never had their own cartoon show, but it's okay because they're still "totally cool!"
Personally, I love toy lines that don't have their own cartoon show. Not that I hate cartoons, cuz I love 'em! There's something about cartoonless toys. You can really let your imagination run wild without some "canon" holding you back.
Though there was no toon, there were plenty of commercials. And now, bask in all the 90's glory of Z-Bots commercials!
I really like this fan made commercial!
These were the only commercials I could find with a quick Google search. Are there any more that I am missing? Please tell me and leave a link in the comments below if you know of more awesome commercials!
Stay tuned, this week I will highlight Z-Bots from my collection and I have new additions on their way soon!
I'm just a tad late on this, but I have decided May just feels like Z-Bots month. Z-Bots were produced by Galoob under the Micro Machines banner and my brother and I couldn't get enough of these little robot guys when we were kids! Some of the old Z-Bots collection is worse for wear, and many of my poor Z-Bots and Voids have been lost. I hope to slowly and frugally build a complete collection and I'm sure it will be a life long pursuit, as some figures are insanely rare. If you are a Z-Bots fan then be sure to check out the Z-Bots Collectors Facebook Fan Page! Also, be sure to check out the Micro Machines Museum for an exhaustive checklist of all things Z-Bot! Stay tuned this month for more Z-Bots goodness!
Lately I have felt like my collection has gotten a bit out of hand and I was ready to throw in the towel completely and just sell everything! The problem with that is we all know I would just start collecting again and the cycle would repeat. So, Instead of selling out completely I decided to instead refocus my collection on my top 10 favorite toys and sell/trade the rest. 10 toy lines/categories still makes for a ton of toys, but it's a step in the right direction and it's better than collecting everything under the sun! I will adjust my monthly themes to the following toy lines.
I'm sure you will notice that there is a dominant sci-fi theme here, sprinkled with fantasy. Also, as a general rule I try to stick with vintage toys and avoid new retail stuff. If you see anything from my list and would like to trade/sell/give me anything from my list please let me know. (Images coming soon) Thanks!
LEGO was my first toy love. My earliest childhood toy memory is of my Dad, brother, and me building set 6987 Message-Intercept Base back in '88 when I was 5 years old. I later became a fan of LEGO Classic Castle, Classic Pirates, Aquanauts, and Wild West, but the Classic Space themes hold a special place in my heart. I collect any LEGO that I can customize into a space themed MOC.
