logoWe can still say “Happy New Year” to each other since it’s still January, right?  I thought so.

There’s a lot of housekeeping/catch up in this episode.  Since it’s been a few weeks between episodes and there was a holiday “break” we had a chance to see and catch up on a lot of stuff from toys to movies to television.

Plus we start ramping up our excitement for the Toy Fair 2015 reveals!

It’s our first all new episode for 2015!  Enjoy!

In this episode we discuss:

 

All that and more on episode 118 of the Geek Shall Inherit podcast!

logoWe can hardly believe that it’s been 3 years since we first launched the Geek Shall Inherit podcast, but the numbers… and dates don’t lie.  It was 3 years ago THIS WEEK that we launched the Geek Shall Inherit podcast with episode one, and we have been talking pop culture ever since! True to form, even expanding this episode to two hours, we STILL don’t get to every topic that we wanted to cover in this episode!  But we do squeeze in a LOT in these 120 minutes.

Once again there is a LOT of new topics to discuss such as a new trailer from a galaxy far, far away as well as some James Bond news… we even talk about holiday decorations!

Thank you again to all that have listened to us over the past 3 years.  We really appreciate every comment, question, suggesting and follow.   And THANK YOU again to our editor and my lovely bride Abby for producing and putting the episodes together week after week, month after month and year after year!

 

In this episode we discuss:

All that and more in a double sized anniversary episode of GSi!

Have a listen, won’t you?

logoSorry this episode is a little later than expected.  I’ve been a bit busy trying to rally 40,000 collectors to make their voice heard by Toys R Us over this Breaking Dad toy controversy.    It’s taken up a lot of my week, but it’s been well worth it as we have quadruple the signatures that the FloridaMom got on her “outrage” petition.   I’m SURE will will talk about this next episode as Jason knows a thing or two about “outraged” moms getting figures pulled out of Toys R Us.

Next weekend is the big Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo here in Los Angeles.   I was supposed to go and cover it for AFi, but instead I’m traveling back home for my grandfather’s 90th birthday celebration.   This will be the first year that I will miss Comikaze, but hey, a man only turns 90 once!   So if you are going, have fun and tell me all about it.  I’ll be there in spirit.

And finally, I just want to put this out there before you listen to the episode so you aren’t disappointed as you listen.  If you are looking for the new wave of Star Wars Black figures that have been hitting stores… then keep looking everywhere and every where.  Waste your time and gas.   Jason has found them, but he won’t tell you where.  So… I guess good luck with that.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Daniel is really digging the new Serial podcast from the “This American Life” team.
  • We are both digging Star Wars Rebels.  The “special edition” encore of the pilot with the added Darth Vader scene will be on this Sunday evening on ABC.  Jason picked up the Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion DVD .
  • McFarlane ‘The Walking Dead’ Construction sets hit Toys R Us about a week early.
  • Pre-ordered Walgreens white Boba Fetts and Marvel Legends Agent Venoms are shipping now.
  • Diamond Select will be doing 7″ Ghostbusters Select figures
  • Star Wars Rebels toys
  • Jason got a “RON the Space Pimp” Pod Stallions figure.
  • Tomorrowland trailer.
  • 10 DC comics movies over the next 6 years announced
  • The possibility of Spiderman being in Avengers 3?
  • Robert Downey Jr. is in Captain America 3 , which rumor has it will kick of a “Civil War” storyline.
  • Star Wars Leak of the Week – lots of pre-production art
  •  Warrick Davis announces as part of Ep7 cast
  • An update on “Star Wars Farts”

logoWe are NOT at New York Comic Con this weekend… but we wish we were.   At least I THINK we wish we were.  There was a report published on Thursday that NYCC had surpassed SDCC in attendance.  And not just by a little, by something like 20,000 people!    They say there are roughly 130,000 + people allowed in the  San Diego Convention center each year for SDCC now.   NYCC at the Javits is said to have 150,000+ and from the reports I’m reading today… it’s still fun.   It’s not the beating that SDCC has become.  The Javits Center has a very different layout than SDCC and they don’t have all of Hollywood right up the road ready to caravan every possible genre project to the show, so maybe they have found the best of both worlds in the Big Apple.   It will be interesting to see the changes in both shows over the next 2-3 years.   We have lots of coverage and pictures of the con, so many it will feel like you are there, right here over on AFi.

 

This week we discuss:
