Earlier this week I had the opportunity to catch up with Jordan Hembrough  aka “The Toy Hunter” star of the Travel Channel’s show of the same name.   Jordan goes way back in the toy world and many of us know him from his collectibles company he founded Hollywood Heroes. The new season of TOY HUNTER…

Happy MLK Day everyone. I hope most of you have the day off and will be able to have a short work week ahead. A long weekend makes us all “as happy as a clam at a clam convention.” To kick things off we have a few corrections from the last episode. We’ve recorded over…

Happy One Year! With the recording of this episode we are officially at the one year mark with 52 weekly episodes. It’s pretty amazing that we’ve been able to keep up that schedule with the years that we have both had in 2012, but it just goes to show the power of Geek and that…

Mattel was kind enough to let us get our hands on a preview sample of their new ‘Back to the Future II’ Hover Board prop replica so we could show you all the features before it went on sale.  So we hastily shot this video to show you all the features and fun that Mattel…

You can tell by the title of this episode that we are making some bold statements. Right or wrong we are not afraid to take a stand on the tough issues. Take THAT culture snobs! Geeks rule! It looks like all is well in the universe once again between Jason and myself and there are…

We’ll have great new product on display courtesy of our distributor, Diamond, at the Diamond Booth. And we’ve just been green-lit for the Captain Action Panel! It’s…

Well, we missed a Monday, but we didn’t skip a week for a new episode! I still count that in the ‘win’ column. I could roll out all the clichés like “you can’t rush perfection” or “better late than never,” but the truth is Jason… well, he explains what happens in the episode so I’ll…

I’ve been asked to participate this week as a guest judge this weekend at the Los Angeles UCB theater and their “Tournament of Nerds” show.  Turns out that show creator Justin Donaldson is an AFi reader from the begining and he very graciously asked if I’d participate.  So if you are in the LA area…

But there will be Comic Con for us! We’re locked and loaded and ready to go. We have our passes, our hotels, and we’re working on our plans. Nothing can stop us now. Of course every episode of GSi is podcast gold, but I think this episode shines for one particular m0ment, and that is…

It’s not really Daniel’s episode, but Jason calls it that in the introduction and since I type up these blurbs each week I can take and and run with it.  In fact, maybe ALL the episodes from here on out will be “Daniel’s Episodes.”  Yes… I like the sound of that! This is another split…

Happy Presidents Day All!  Today we have a jumbo sized episode as we finish up our Toy Fair 2012 discussion and interviews.  Seriously… this episode ended up like 90 minutes. (I blame Jason.) We do our regular weekly discussion on the geek topics of the week.  We talk about our impressions of what we saw…

I was lucky enough to be asked back to do another action figure segment on G4’s ‘Attack of The Show’ earlier this month. As I have mentioned before the bad, bad people at Directv have robbed me of the ability to watch anything on G4, much less my own appearance.  But the good people at…

We have a VERY special treat today! Mattel is letting us debut their new/upcoming commercial for the DC Universe Classics line here on AFI! This is time it’s been seen outside the closed doors of Mattel and you see it here FIRST! It looks like a bit of a throw back to the old Star…

Here’s a great idea made better.  We all remember the old Rock’em Sock’em Robots (by Marx!) and spent many an afternoon pummeling our opponent.  But what if you could open that "arena" up and REALLY get to some robot bashing?!?!  That’s the idea behind Johnny Lightnings new BATTLE WHEELS. These are collectible remote controlled,fighting robots…
