This was the end of the Monster in my Pocket line as a toyline trying to represent monsters, from here on the line become fodder for comical wrestlers and ninja figure, hey it was the 90's and those things were big then so can't really knock the company for trying to grab some cash as it were.


  1. Some of those multicolored ones are really horrible looking. It's like they just randomly picked the parts to make a different color and random colors for them.

  2. The originals are my favorite because they reminded me of M.U.S.C.L.E. I really need to track some down. Nice informative post!
