logoHappy President’s Day everyone!  We hope you all survived the Russian meteors and had a good week.  We made it back from our travels and are full of news and opinions of Toy Fair 2013.   You can see all of the pictures Daniel (and Jason Geyer) took here in the Action Figure Insider Toy Fair 2013 galleries.  Make sure you pay special attention to this gallery from an up and coming new company called BifBangPow!   Those kids are really going places and had some fantastic new items on display!

There’s a TON of stuff to talk about for Toy Fair 2013, and we start that conversation this week.  I’m sure there will be much more to say about it in the weeks to come as we all process what we saw.

In addition to our regular weekly pop culture chat we also have two brand new interviews from Toy Fair 2013, first up is  NECA’s Randy Falk talking about all of their new offerings (that Robocop Ed 209 is SWEEEET).  Then we have a conversation with Eric “Cornboy” Mayse about all things Four Horsemen, including Castle Grayskull, Toy Fair and where they had to go to track down the rights to do their ‘Power Lords’ line.

  • – Harrison Ford/Han Solo strongly rumored to appear in Star Wars Episode VII.
