10 Toy Photography Accounts to follow on Instagram

Well, well, well. Look who we have here? If it isn't Hoard World The Blog. Come crawling back to the blogosphere did we? Yes indeedy, Steve Macreadie.

Just like Harrison Ford, Ridley Scott and Dave Chapelle, sometimes they come back to their old shit.

Sometimes they shouldn't have. Sometimes it's alright. You can decide what this is for yourself. I'm not your real dad.

Once you've figured all that out, you can come with me on a journey to the magical world of instagram.....

The Blog is dead! Long live The Blog!

This will be news to absolutely nobody that has been to this page in the last 9 months but as much as I love this blog page and with as many good intentions as I have to update it or write anything of worth, it just doesn't look like that's ever happening.

That's not to say that I won't at some point. I can do what I like.

But until then, let's make it official. Hoard World The Blog has gone to lunch.

Hoardsmas 2015: Vintage 80s / 90s Australian Toy Catalogues

Oh, hey. Long time no see. Soz. It's been quite a year. I've been a tad tardy with my bloggings.

I just thought I'd pop in and say:



Now that's out of the way, let me take you on a journey through some vintage Australian toy catalogues from both Zig-Zag and Toyworld, courtesy of my pal Mr. Brendan Ryan.

If you follow the Hoard World page on Facey B, you will likely have run into Brendan or heard mention of him via links. But if not, you will no doubt recall his magnificent toy catalogue collection that was featured way back in 2013 with THIS POST.

But wait, there's more. Quite a bit more. And today we're going to take a look at a bit more of these catalogues that are exclusive to the Hoard World blog. Thanks to Brendan.

Masters of the Universe Classics Light Hope Figure Review (Mattel)

This review was originally published way back in November 2014 on It was written specifically for the Doomkick site so may contain specific references to the site etc. Due to the age of the article, some of the information contained within may have dated somewhat. This is the very last of my guest reviews on other sites to date. With the exception of the little piece I contributed to Dinosaur Dracula a billion years ago, all my off-site work has now been republished right here on Hoard World! Yay! You can check out the originally published version of this Light Hope review at the Doomkick site here. Thanks for reading!

Light Hope. Yes. That guy. One of the three extra special BFFs along with Madame Razz and Kowl who knew She-Ra's secret identity. Also pretty much one of the hardest characters to ever make an action figure out of.

Because he's just a beam of rainbow-esque light (see above). You know?

Unless you do something almost cool but mostly awful like NECA's "Lightning Gremlin" action figure, you're really up Snake Mountain without a power sword when it comes to making an action figure of Light Hope.

Yet they did. And here he is.
