Archived News 2009
This page contains the old updates/news from the main page during 2009.
Merry Christmas everyone! I've added the full set of Christmas Pogs.
Updated the Animaniacs Pogs with images of the full set (previously there were a couple of pogs missing).
Added images of the full sets of Collect-A-Card Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad Fun Caps, Apollo 13 Pogs, Del Taco Series 1 Pogs, and Dr. Martens Pogs.
Also added some NHL Pogs.
A Pogs/milkcap game for the iPhone has been released, you can see a video of the game on youtube, or .
Added a comprehensive guide to storing Pogs, Tazos, etc. with pictures of various different branded milkcap storage solutions. If you have any other suggestions or advice on storing pogs, please contact us.
Added images of the full set of Collect-A-Card Olympic Games Atlanta 1996 Fun Caps.
Also added some Chupa Caps with Yellow backs.
Also added some Original Eurocaps.
Added images of the full set of Birthday Pogs.
Just added some American Games Caps, and the full sets of: Hocus Pocus Worlds Of Fun Hawaiian Milkcaps; My Little Horn Worlds Of Fun Hawaiian Milkcaps; Surfing Penguin Worlds Of Fun Hawaiian Milkcaps; and Wizard Of Fun Worlds Of Fun Hawaiian Milkcaps.
Hopefully everything is working okay now (you may need to refresh the page for the changes to take effect). If you find something isn't working or you have any suggestions for the site, please contact us.
So far I've added the full set of World Pog Federation Series 1, Worlds Of Fun Hawaiian Milkcaps 4x4 Scrambler, and Worlds Of Fun Hawaiian Milkcaps Hip-Hop (not sure if this is the correct title of this series, but that's what I've called it anyway). More to come soon!
The site design has been updated, and you can now click on the milkcap/pog/tazo images to open up a high resolution version of the image. The site has been moved over to a database system so you can now view and edit details about each set/series including which countries they were available in.
There's probably quite a few bits of the site not working at the moment, please bear with me while these are being fixed.
Due to the changes the images and forum previously on the site are not available in this version. However, you can still access the old site at v1.milkcapmania.co.uk. The new site doesn't have much content at the moment but will be updated regularly and will eventually feature many more sets/series than the original site covered, so keep checking back to see what's new (updates will be posted on this front page).

POGs are back! Yes, that's right, POGs have been re-released by a company called Funrise Toys. The Official website is, or the official UK website is . You may note that the 'World Pog Federation' is now the 'Global POG Federation'. In the UK only Series 1 of the new POGs have been launched. These retail for £2 per packet, twice the cost of POGs when they were launched originally. I must also say that I haven't seen them for sale in any shops, or seen any marketing for them. The original POGs were quite heavily marketed, being given away free with popular children's comics, cereals, and later various other foods. In the US there appears to be 3 new series available at the moment - the new Series 1, Marvel Series and NHL Series. There are also Metal Slammers available.
There's also been a comedy animation produced to show alternative uses for POGs, which you can see at.
I have also moved the site to a new webhosting company, so hopefully the forums will be a lot better than on the old host. Grant Goldspink has also kindly sent me scans of some Mad Caps, POGs and other caps that I don't have. The scans were a bit small to put in with the pictures of the other caps, but you can see them by clicking the following links: Mad Caps; More Mad Caps; Various caps; American Games Caps; Random House POGs; Bad Boy Club Caps; Limited Edition POGs.
