Geek Shall Inherit – Action Figure Insider The Best Darn Toy News On The Web! Fri, 20 Apr 2018 18:15:55 +0000 en-US hourly 1 61893577 Geek Shall Inherit Episode 119 – Pre-Toy Fair 2015 #TFNY Thu, 12 Feb 2015 07:31:27 +0000 logoThis weekend kicks off Toy Fair 2015 so since I have an action figure website and Jason has a toy company it only makes sense that we spend a good chunk of this episode talking about toys and the toy industry.  We have quite a bit of “behind-the-scenes” toy talk in this episode so we didn’t get to cover all of the topics we wanted to cover, but if there was ever a time to talk toys it’s the week before the “big show!” I’m really excited about all of the new reveals… but not so excited about the weather.  Please… think warm thoughts for me this weekend.


In this episode we discuss:

Geek Shall Inherit Episode 118 – Happy New Year! Sun, 25 Jan 2015 21:26:17 +0000 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!

Geek Shall Inherit Episode 117 – 3rd Anniversary Super-Sized Show! Tue, 09 Dec 2014 02:05:28 +0000 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!

Geek Shall Inherit Episode #114 – In A New York Comic Con State of Mind Fri, 10 Oct 2014 22:43:41 +0000 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. 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.

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 01:35:07 +0000 logoFor all of you folks that have been asking for more toy talk on the podcast, then this is the episode for you! We talk a little bit of music, a little bit of catch up and then we dive deep in our plastic lives and talk toys. I don’t think we talk about a single move in this episode. See, we like to switch things up about every 111 episodes just to keep it all fresh!

Geek Shall Inherit Episode 111 – Going Deep Mon, 01 Sep 2014 11:49:40 +0000 logoI hope all of you US listeners are enjoying the long holiday weekend.  I know I am.  Here we are at our alliteration episode, number 111… is it still alliteration if it’s with numbers and not letters?

As we discuss in this episode we now live in a world with a 12th Doctor, and just yesterday we got word that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is now the highest grossing film of 2014. So there’s lots of great things happening in the world of geek right now and we are just the two men to talk about it.

Jason was a little under the weather in this episode in case you don’t think he’s his usual peppy self.  But there was pop culture to be discussed so he sucked it up and sat down for another brand new hour geek talk.


In this episode we discuss:

All that and much more in episode 111.

Geek Shall Inherit Episode 110 – Comic Con-Come Down Thu, 14 Aug 2014 20:37:55 +0000 logoIf you are someone that covers comic con in the media, just because SDCC ends after 5 days doesn’t mean it’s over. I’m still slogging through getting coverage put up. ALL my photos are live right here, but I still have some videos and interviews that are coming. That also means this episode is going up about a week later than I wanted to post it. So to make it up to you this is a longer episode. A lot happened and there’s a lot of stuff to talk about from both of our experiences and all the new reveals, so this will be another 90 minute episode.

Comic Con was great (but HOT) again this year. Thank you to everyone that came up to us at the con and said you dig the show. We really appreciate that. We hope you all had a grand time too and didn’t get stuck in too many long lines. I know that can start to suck the life out of you!

We’re back now, so let’s get to it!


In this episode we cover:

Also I said I would post the video for Weird Al’s “Word Crimes”

All that a more in a all new episode!

In this episode we discuss:

The return of ROM! – SDCC exclusive Mighty Mugg announced.   Could this be a test for MORE Rom merch?

Geek Shall Inherit Episode 108 – The Rocket’s Red Glare Sat, 12 Jul 2014 01:51:17 +0000 logoEveryone relax. We’re OK. While it may SOUND like we were taking heavy fire in the middle of a war zone, that’s just life in Los Angeles. I can assure you that no hosts were harmed during this recording. It is common in the greater LA area that teens and punk kids set off fire works in the middle of the street all day an all night starting around June 30th and lasting until July 10th. Now you will also get to experience that while you listen to this episode.

But we are able to mostly ignore all that as once the calendar hits the 7th month of the year our hearts and minds turn to Comic Con preparation. There is an avalanche of great geek stuff to be exited about and every week we are only able to burn through a handful topics because we love this stuff so much… and summer time and “the big show” really is an embarrassment of riches for us.


In this episode we discuss:

Daniel met old school VFX wizard Tom St. Amand.

Monty Python last ever live shows this week.

Star Wars episode VIII and IX announced.

Daniel Saw “Chef” and loved it. Highly recommend.

Guardians of the Galaxy 17 min preview July 7th

“Clark Kent” set tease from SvB. New Superman picture released today.

Criterion ‘A Hard Days Night’ BluRay DVD release

AUDITION finally getting a US remake

Doctor Who – August 23rd/ Peter Capaldi on set DW pics, it’s U.N.I.T. Era Pertwee all over again!

Vincent D cast as Kingpin in Marvel’s Daredevil also Foggy Nelson cast, and Rosario Dawson

Super7/Funko ReAction SDCC exclusives

Target has GoG toys now/ Hasbro’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY toy line

The Mattel SDCC Batmobile exclusive is pretty awesome.

Jason snagged one more of the WATCHMEN movie premiums for his collection.

Jason is going to his first KISS concert next week!

All that and much more!

Geek Shall Inherit Episode 106 – Lobot’s Big Break Tue, 17 Jun 2014 19:29:26 +0000 logo Summer is almost upon us and Comic Con 2014 is just around the corner! I feel the pressure of the con SCREAMING towards me! I’ve got so much I still need to do before the con hit that I really shouldn’t even be here typing this now.

One quick disclaimer – In this episode I mention a letter that surfaced last week from Stanley Kubrick to a studio attempting to make a sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey. It’s a fun story, but it’s been proven that the letter is a lie and complete rubbish. Personally I’m shocked and I’m starting to think I can’t believe everything I read on the internet. I hope that day never comes for me.


In this episode we discuss:

  • Monty Python 9 CD box set, ‘Total Rubbish’ end of June UK only
  • Star Wars set leaks, JJ Abrams’ response on Twitter.
  • We LOVE they are using unused McQuarrie concepts for Episode VII.

  • SW Blu-Ray original trilogy release might be happening non-Special Edition
  • Force of Change – You can be in Episode VII – SW 7 JJ Abrams footage with that goofy creature!
