Battle Trolls

This week we have added something a little unusual! Battle Trolls! I don’t know if anyone out there remembers seeing these circa early 90s?

They were introduced in 1992 and were marketed with the slogan “Big Haired Dudes with Bad Attitudes” and were quite large at approximately 12cm tall and around 22cm including their beautiful troll locks of hair. The line featured 26 individual characters with the characters being styled on either generic action/adventure themes (a pirate, a ninja, two Vikings, a robot, a policeman, a knight, a punk rocker, and a Wild West outlaw); athletes (an American football player, an ice hockey player, a boxer, and a skateboarder); military servicemen (a general, a navy diver, and an air force pilot); monsters (a vampire, Frankenstein’s monster, a werewolf, and two cyclopes); or outright spoofs of famous franchises (Rambo, the Terminator cyborg, Superman, a Mad Max-style villain, and The Ultimate Warrior).

We have a selection of 10 Battle Troll variations available now.. be quick though! Get them here

Welcome to Thrift!

Welcome to our new online store!

I have always had an interest in retro toys and collectibles from the 80’s and 90’s. I started Thrift.co.nz as a way of giving old toys, video games and collectibles a second chance at life as well as feeding my obsession with the styles of those decades.

Not only did I start this site because of my love of old toys and video games I also am sick of seeing the amount of secondhand items that end up in a landfill every year! Just the other day I had a friend say to me that they clean up their children’s room every month throwing out numerous toys in the rubbish bin!

So lets put a stop to this and give these toys a second chance!
