PlaidStallion's Toy-Ventures Magazine
« on: June 17, 2020, 04:15:09 PM »
I thought it was worth mentioning this amazing looking 1st issue that's up on Indiegogo right now from pilaidstallions Brian Heiler. Brian is a major player in the world of Mego and KO vintage toys and published an amazing book a few years ago about cheap Rack Toys that was filled with really fantastic items. This first issue looks to have a really comprehensive guide to the AHI monsters as well as some other really interesting looking articles so if you're interested in something like this then check out the link and maybe get involved ( I most certainly have!).

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plaidstallion-s-toy-ventures-magazine#/

It looks like it's pretty much already funded after only being live for a few hours so this will definitely happen and I can't wait to have a read of it.

Just donated.  Looks like a super cool magazine.

This campaign is doing really well so far and it couldn't happen to a nicer guy as Brian, who has put this together, does so much for these types of vintage toys and always puts great vids out each week on youtube.

Should be a fun read  ;D

Hi! Thanks for the invitation and the kind words, really appreciate it.

I'd have jumped on sooner but this publication is currently eating all my free time.

That being said I do have a couple of gaps in the AHI monsters section of the publication and well, this seems like the place.

 if you collect carded AHI monsters and can take a photo please, please drop me a line. I'll post my "wish list" of items I'm looking for shortly.

Cheers!
Brian

Hey, thanks for the kind welcomes, most appreciated.

I love the suggestion of the picture section here but they're a bit too low resolution for publication. I hope tomorrow to print a list of "gaps" in the article, for now I'm working on photographing a Mr. Spock Bop Bag.

I have loose AHI, but does not fit your criteria.
