    ^^ Nah, they're called 'Monsters vs Zombies' . . . i think they were released about a year ago.
    I'm annoyed i did'nt know about them back then because i'd love the whole set . . . they're no longer in shops where i live anymore.

    They do look a bit Scooby-doo dont they . . . .

    Found this one for 50p. Its from a set of GID Zombie mini figures by 'Accoutrements'.
    The seller had no idea what it was or where they got it from.

    Only 40mm high . . . pretty cool :)

    Boot-sale.
    50p each, two different sellers.

    Never seen this type of Boglin water squirter before . . . it doesn't have any makers marks, so no idea if its a bootleg or official.
    I'd like some more!

    Very creepy, but cool. I quite like how his hands are tucked into his tunic; makes it that much more mysterious and interesting - not at all like a typical toy one would expect. You get the sense the designer really had a character in mind when he created this fellow.

    Jeez, you just had to go there David. :lol: They are clearly resting on his jolly stomach in bunny hug-through pocket fashion, but whatever. I don't know what type of clowns were around you as a child, but evidently they were very well endowed. 8)

    If anything, I would be more concerned by the overall shape and proportions of this toy. Okay, I just have to stop now.

    ... went op shopping today MAINLY for new house stuff.

    Was blown away when i saw an old Imperial dino sitting in the used toy section.

    Gave 'em all a clean when i got home, and my man thought the resulting scene was funny and snapped a pic:

    I really like this one . . . . vintage 'The Real Ghostbusters' toy from 1986.
    £2 at the usual boot-sale.

    They are both water squirters that stack together.
    The stacking function is a really cool little novelty!

    ^^ ha, thanks . . . and yeah, i really like the sculpt on the E.T.

    I'm always surprised when i pick up something great and the bored looking seller says in a really disinterested way . . . 20p?
    Some people have no idea! Not that i'm complaining, but very often people completely undervalue toys.
