In light of Woodsy's perplexing queries on the nature of steampunk and in a nod to the recent Jules Verne theme, here are some of my toys from Disney's Atlantis animation. Atlantis is a good few years old, but a lot of the design and art was by Hellboy artist Mike Mignola. Mattel picked up the toy licence and ran with it, bringing up all manner of figures, dolls and toys. Some of the toys were multiform 'construction' toys, with mix and match parts. Here we have the Landing craft in various guises and some of the Atlantean fish vehicles. The Leviathan was the large green Kraken analogue, which wrecked ships, itself an excellent toy.
