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.
