This week on the Toy Power Podcast we talk to the delightful Emily Lind! With a spooky theme right from the start, you are in for a trick or treat! The fun get to know you questions, and then it's time to shine some light on the amazing shrine that she has built around Peter Crushing. A fascinating insight to the famous Grand Moff antagonist from Star Wars & how one builds a shrine on this character - but also a deeper look at his marvellous acting carrier. Then we pivot into the world of Horror. With Toy Company's at their peak - we are treated with an exciting or scary selection of items. TV , Movie , Books as well as Comic Book shoutouts form every era imaginable. We ask Emily to break-down how she as a horror fan - chooses her toys & what pops out to her; as well as a break-down of the difference between the films that are categorised as Universal & Hammer Horror. We also ask the hard question - what would Emily like to see in the Horror genre from films in the future... If you wish to hear more from the knowledgeable Emily - be sure to check out her Podcast: The Canto Bight Dispatch.Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Today on the show, I'm not even on the show! Yes as I, Francis Ignatious Calixto Allan, sit here and write this, I can neither confirm nor deny the contents of this episode as, I simply wasn't there! But after having done this nearly 300 times, here's my speculation: Trent says something wise and outlandish, Ben says "100 percent" 80% of the time and Producer Scot, well he must have done something right because the audio got recorded! Is this what it's like for ya'll out there, listening to it for the first time? It's both surreal and exciting! I'm sure it will be a banger!

Coming in from the deep south today, we get some fire and brimstone as Producer Scot challenges us to come up with some Hot Takes facing the toy industry. Last time Frank got controversial on a beloved toyline, it became a bit of a thing, so strap yourselves in folks! But to even us out, out of the north, a swift cold front sweeps in direct from Canada. Thanks to our amazing friend Colin, we get to open a bunch of unsolicited gifts on air. If you want proof that people actually listen to what we say, go no further because the love and dedication put into this parcel goes beyond words. The guy even brought presents for our kids! MIND. BLOWN. Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
With PulseCon and NYCC reveals banking up, this was always gonna be a long, crazy episode. So crazy we forgot to tune Trents mic apparently! In this extended episode we cover it all from the usual suspects from Star Wars, Marvel Legends, DC Multiverse, Origins, NECA and Super7, but also the road less travelled with Nacelle, Mondo, Toho and too many more to name. We also unpack the recent closure of Aussie retailer BulletProof Villain and the fallout from it. Lastly, our hometown super-event The Adelaide Comic and Toy Fair gets a glowing recap as we talk tales, latest scores and hilarity from one epic day.Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

This Week on the Toy Power Podcast, we are catching up again with Special Guest Brett. Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts, this will not be covering the most recent October Fair itself, however, we instead take a look back at how Brett has built up this awesome calendar event. Now in its 8th year - how did it all start & find out why he can never stop! Getting the inside scoop from Brett - about the thinking & planning behind these events, Artist Alleys, Venues vs Basketball courts, early TPP recordings & how different places can really change the atmosphere of the fairs. Find out what hurdles he had to jump over when dealing through the Covid Pandemic, as well as nightmarish last minute set-up changes.... Then we throw some off the wall ideas at Brett; in hopes to maybe grow the Adelaide Fair even more... All this, as well as some stand-out memories from the past Fairs, along with shout-outs of some our historically greatest scores! Then to round out the ep - we have a Quiz - created by Brett. Fun Times!Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Today it's news day and we are Trent-less – Enter the Brett! His hair and voice are almost a match only with 1000% more comics! There's some surprises from Hasbro, a cool cool Leo figure to tempt the hell out of Frank but the bulk of our chat comes down to price. Be it massive LEGO sets, super cheap Batmobeasts and at the other end, a crazy HasLabs project that has already courted controversy. Are Americans finally feeling the pinch of $50 six-inch figures? Oh and was there something about Deadpool that happened this week? Hear Frank's crazy plot theory. Brett then brings the pre-Toy Fair hype with some wonderful gifts.Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
“Big mistake, dude!” Your Distinguished Professors tackle a movie that temporarily killed a franchise and that isn't X-Men 3! We suffered through the joyless simulation of a movie that is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, so now you have to listen to us chat about it! It's only fair! Topics discussed include the confusing proliferation of TMNT media, a plug for The Toys That Made Us, Corey Feldman's hacky voice acting, an interminable attempt to project our group dynamic onto the turtles, the bad targeting of the jokes for the adults, the degeneration of the turtle effects and Splinter's loss of his lower torso, the time swap plot, interspecies turtle lust for April O'Neil, magical time travel finally makes its appearance, Leonardo's Cyclops-like uselessness, endless attempts to try to figure out how racist this movie is, our intervention regarding Vanderpool's habit of falling asleep in movies, the unresolved mystery of the drawings of the turtles from the past, a digression into kappa, the ubiquitous ‘80s desire to become a ninja, arguably the worst 90s villain falling death, and Clink's insane double Michelangelo mask moment which dominates the podcast.

It's time for us to spotlight the Wild World of Wrestling! To help us shout out the correct information; we have the Ring-Master man himself: Mr Criss Fresh! After a little bit of local toy aisle chats, we get to the crux of how wrestling became the juggernaut that it is known to be. Through the eyes of Fresh, how did Wrestling hit his radar as a kid. A captivating story of Fresh following Wrestlemania through TV & Tape trading's, plus all the schoolyard banter - then the natural progression onto toys. Fresh Smacks Down the facts & memories of indestructible LJN figures & their off-shoot bendy counterparts too. The discovery of WWF Hasbro figures & their great sculpts! The realisation that some of these 'Green-back' figures did not get a wider world release - but are quite plentiful in Australia! Galoob & ToyBiz toylines featuring WCW characters & Jakks Pacific covering WWF. Poppy covering the Japanese Wresting series & Remco spotlighting the AWA Federation. Original San Fransico Toy Makers covering the WCW & ECW. Then that new age era... The 'PG' era of Wrestling. Quickly followed by an Inverted Atomic Drop.... Mattel enters the Ring & takes home the Championship Belt in the Toy Aisles; & not forgetting that CharaPro winning over in the East, under their New Japan Wrestling toyline. All this & more! A genuinely energetic chat about not only about one man's History with Wrestling Toys, but the passion to the Ring & it's very Famous Inhabitants. This could just be; the Best their is, the Best there was & the Best there ever will be!!!Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
