  1. This was a great show…my friend and I are toy geeks. Whats amazing is that as children, action figures really seemed more “play” based…where as today it has become almost a collector based business. The supply has reached astronomical levels, which in turn destroyed the demand. Variants, subscription figures, and market flood all but made sure your purchase will be worthless in five years. We always joke that ebay killed the collector. Just look at the prices when a toy comes out, and then again in a few weeks. We saw new He-Man figures going for close to 150 bucks last year, now falling to 30. Even Mighty Muggs…75 dollars for a Venom, now…lucky if it tops $15. My point is, you will never see prices on original Star Wars, Transformers, He-Man etc etc etc start to drop…because everyone actually opened them and played/beat the crap out of them.

  2. Haven’t listened to the podcast yet, but that image is just so joy-inducing. On the recommendation of one of the prior podcasts, I picked up The Lego Book — the 2 book set that Stephen reviewed. What a fantastic collection. It was such a thrill seeing the older Lego sets, especially seeing my first one (1986, Black Falcon’s Fortress). Great nostalgic fun.
