Too Many Games is Next Weekend!

Too Many Games is a big three day video game convention that happens every year in Oaks Pennsylvania. The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center is were it all happens, and the con is next weekend! I work at Registration every year making sure the guest and attendees get checked in to the show. I'm excited to see some of my convention friends who work the show and also some of the guest who I am friends with as well.

James the AVGN with props from his show.
James Rolfe, the Angry Video Game Nerd, and Mike Matei will be there. Both of these guys are really cool and will be attending. Mike has been super cool about working with me once in a while to produce some videos for SEO Toy Review.

The Game Chasers, Billy and Jay will be at Too Many Games again. Two good old boys from Texas looking for deals on retro video games. They are also both avid toy collectors and so it's fun to talk to them. They do a side series on their channel called the Toy Chasers.

8-Bit Eric, who has also been super helpful on the youtube front will be there as well. At first I knew about Eric because he appeared on the Game Chasers channel. In real life, I've hung out with Eric quite a bit. He's really funny.

Pixel Dan, my favorite toy youtuber is coming back to Too Many Games for the second year in a row. Last year his panel was all about weird forgotten toy lines like Rock Lords and Stone Protectors. It was a lot of fun. I think this year he is previewing an episode from his second season of "From Plastic to Pixels", where he plays video games based on toy lines with fellow youtuber the Gaming Historian. Dan and I are planning to try to shoot a little video again this year at the con.

This is not an exhaustive list of everyone coming to the con. I know James from Epic Game Music will be there and Pat the NES Punk will be there. Check out the Too Many Games website for more details. Hopefully I'll see some of you there!

Hasbro Army Ants (1987) Home Movie from 1999

Army Ants was a new take on "little plastic army men" by Hasbro in 1987. My best friend growing up had the entire collection. We played with them a lot. We would each pick figures from both sides and then act out huge ant wars. In 1999 (way before youtube) we started making a nostalgia tape about toys from our childhood. We didn't film very many "episodes", but I enjoy the ones we made. So in honor of my friend Derek's birthday I present our Army Ants video with a brief modern into.

Batman Classic TV Show Batmobile

Taking a look at the Batman Classic TV Show Batmobile with Batman & Robin action figures. Funko has really stepped up their game. This entire series of Batman Classic TV Show action figures look like they will be a really fun line. I filmed and edited this video and then got the new Adam West (Batman) had died. I did at a brief tribute to the end before uploading the video over the weekend.

Ambush & Scoop - GI Joe Collectors Club

Ambush and Scoop from GI Joe Collectors Club FSS 5.0 are modern versions of two classic figures. One I think is pretty good and other I think is kind of a stinker.

1985 Imperial Godzilla & King Kong

I made a special video about the 1985 Imperial Godzilla & King Kong figures I got for my 7th birthday. I posted this video to youtube, but forgot to blog about in on my birthday! So anyway here's my birthday video a week late. Godzilla was a big part of my childhood and I really loved these figures. I used to get a kick out of the fact that the 12" Imperial Godzilla was in the background of most episodes of the Roseanne sitcom in the 80's. Along with reviewing these figures I also talk about how this Godzilla figure has been important though out my life starting with some home video of me getting these figures and finishing off with some clips from a low budget video called Godzilla Flick my friends and I made at the end of high school.
