#902 FIGURAS EN ACCIÓN (F.E.A.) Nr. 18 + GOOD TIMES - KULT! Nr. 17 (1/2018)


Since the new year I am publishing only two entries per month instead of 11, and because the Figuras En Acción magazine is still being published twice a year, I have decided to merge all reviews for publications I read together with the F.E.A. releases. 


F.E.A. Nr.18

I´ll start by announcing the release of the 18th issue of the magazine, as always free to download, add-free, without registration.
This number comes with a mixed lot of articles and some news. We try to bring something new in every number, and this time is something quite important. We have now set a cooperation with the Podcast La Cueva del Terror, in which they will send us one article per number. This will ensure a minimal dose of Masters of the Universe in each number.

Other articles in this number include a extensive analysis of the Creature of the Black Lagoon, centered on the character, movies and related toys; an article about Comics Spain's Dungeon and Dragons figures; basketball players from Star Toys (for Kellogg´s), Yolanda and other companies; the surprise envelopes "Sorpresa Monstruo" by Patapalo and two great interviews: the first one with the person behind Tecleador.com (repro and custom accesories for 1/6 scale action figures like Madelman) and the second one with Walter Harris, creator of the action figure toyline Hammer of the Gods. Still a couple of surprises on top of that.

I hope you enjoy it!


KULT! Nr.17

After a while without buying KULT! I got number 17 last Christmas and I read it back then. The magazine remains without big changes after a while, at least at first sight. I have realised that there are many more collaborators now than 2 or 3 years ago, and this is a symptom that things go well for them. They have also released three special issues in the last year, and the one dealings with cars looks very very interesting. The other two focus on Police TV series and western movies and series. Good for them!

This number 17 comes with another article on Matchbox (there was already at leat one on this same topic published in a previous number), and another on Barbie. That is everything related to toys, but there are also lots of other interesting articles like furniture and home appliances design in the 70s, Captain Future, Ivanhoe, Nena, Ásterix, Eskimo Ice Creams and many more, everything mixed up with no order in the Kult! style we love.
