I recently unearthed my original Skulk Sectaur, and put him on my shelf. But then I came across Pinsor, with Battle Beetle, at a vintage toy store (Eternia Dreams) and snatched him in my grubby claws. Now that I had a good guy Sectaur, I could set up a proper photoshoot.

Pick up this months Toy Fare magazine and read an article written by our very own Mr. Stinkhead (Andy Jones). Mr. Stinkhead interviewed Tim Clarke, creator of both Sectaurs and Boglins, two of the oddball 80s toy lines! Tim shows off some rare early Boglin and Sectaur art, plus some never-produced Dark Crystal toy prototypes.
