UnderScoopFire Podcast #21 – Toy Fair 2012 & the Top 10 Action Figures of All Time

by Howie Decker @HowardTheDeck

The 2012 Toy Fair is coming up February 12-15 in New York City, and that has gotten us thinking about toys (not that we need a Toy Fair to get us thinking about action figures, that pretty much happens everyday). The Toy Fair has expanded this year in an attempt to accommodate the record number of companies anxious to be added to the world-renowned tradeshow’s wait list. Toys and action figures are as popular as ever.

In this episode:

Howie is joined by a panel of well-respected toy authorities as they discuss the Top 100 Action Fgures of All Time, most specifically the Top 10. We also preview the NYC Toy Fair 2012, as one of our panel members is preparing to make the trip! Love is a wonderful thing, and we know what it’s like to be passionate about toys and action figures.

Let me introduce you to the roundtable participants and contributors who worked on this list:

  • John Vanover – admin of tvandfilmtoys.com, his collection is broad- with an emphasis on Star Wars and other movie franchise toys.
  • Justin Bell – admin of GeneralsJoes.com, contributor to the G.I.Joe Collectors Club Newsletter, member of the What’s on Joe Mind? Podcast.
  • Rob Buzan – author of Joe A Day, a great blog that provides exactly what it promises. Owner of every 3 3/4 inch G.I. Joe figure from 1982 to present.
  • Justin Gammon – designer/illustrator, author of WeirdoToys.com: a “home for all those random toys that most people have left behind.”
