  1. I don’t think I’ve seen those Legends of the Dark Knight figures before. They look interesting for sure! And how nice to finish things off with Skittles (I miss those!) but it’s a bit sad that I got most excited at the sight of Golden Grahams and Cinnamon Grahams. O-M-G. I used to love those so much and it’s been years since I’ve had any!!

  2. Such cool ads, especially for Dungeons and Dragons. Often used to see those in comic books. We had a small toy store in town that sold a lot of D&D stuff, used to love that back in the day. It was such a quirky little shop. Downstairs was sports gear, stuff for football, tennis, golf, and fishing, while upstairs there were toys. They always had stuff that was a bit different from the norm, like D&D , album games like Attack of the Mutants, and toys like Micronauts, Universal monster figures with faces that glowed in the dark, Cyborg and Muton, it was like a treasure trove of stuff! Great to see an advert for Babylon 5 toys in this post as well, never knew they did action figures for that series.

      Man, I was so pleased to see those 90s D&D ads – the artwork is just awesome. Plus Babylon 5 toy ads – don’t often see those.
      Know what you mean about those quirky shops that often sold a range of stuff alongside toys. Ours was a bicycle shop that did a line in toys, then various comic book market stalls and shops that delved into vinyl records, computer games and RPGs. Always a pleasure to visit these on a Saturday back in the day.
      Thanks for the great memory share of stores like these 🙂

      • That sounds like such a cool shop as well. It was always so cool to visit these toy stores then too. When we were kids the first place that sold proper comic book was a market stall on the train station. It was only a small table, but it was like a treasure trove of comics for us! You’re welcome, always fun to share these memories and stories. 🙂

      • Yes, you’re right, apart from the big comic store by us (Nostalgia & Comics) which has been there for years, market stalls were the go-to place for comics, toys, records and cool clothing/jewellery.
        It’s kind of why I like ebay in a way because you can find most of these vintage items there, but online.
        Last time I was in Brum I was really sad to see an old comic shop I knew had sold up. Shame as I bought a lot of stuff there at decent prices.
        Another good outlet for vintage is conventions, but these have been few since the virus.

    • Cheers, Arcane. Yes, know what you mean… when I saw the ad for the JSOA I was like, what never seen these before they are so cool!! Haven’t had chance yet to see what the prices command on 2nd hand online sites… bet they ain’t cheap, but what an addition to the collection if some turn up!
