Bif Bang Pow's Pin Mates
« on: February 12, 2016, 01:14 PM »
Bif Bang Pow! Launches Peg Pals™ - A Brand-New Collectible Line of Wooden Figures.




Once again, a nostalgia themed line aimed at kids of the 60s/70s.   We had a ton of the old fisher price little people wooden figure sets when I was a youngster - Sesame Street, farm, castle, mall, airport, etc.  These could be really cool if they take off.

Press release says they are starting with KISS, but have plans for DC and Marvel, and more.  I probably won't be able to resist a Batman figure when they get around to one, especially if that $5 price holds up.

Apparently someone figured out that calling your line of of cylindrical figures "peg pals" wasn't such a good idea.  Real "Peg Pals" are probably sold at a different kind of toy store... :-X

Anyway, the new name appears to be "pin mates".  Dumb name, but still fun retro nostalgia toys! ;)  Here's a look at the Trek OS pins, up for order now at Entertainment Earth

And I encourage you all to google "Peg Pals". :)

Those are kinda neat.  I had some little people too.  Most were hand-me-downs from my brother.  The idea is cool though.

I did as you suggested but all I saw was these little dudes.  ???

And that's probably just as well.
