Open Your Toys Cast – Episode 031: It’s almost Con Season…

Can you smell it in the air? The scent of anticipation? The odor of excitement? The stink of unshowered masses? I can remember back just a couple years ago when I really wished I could go to some of the bigger conventions. Fortunately in the last two years the Mrs. and I have been able to attend some of the best. This year is no different. Also no different, the long hours of trying to get the best deal possible for everything from airfare to hotels to car rentals. I literally just spent 3 hours in a futile attempt to finalize everything.

Unfortunately Botcon isn’t looking good and I’m a little pissed. However, don’t cry for me Argentina, we’re almost set for Comic-Con and Celebration 5. Best part, we have listeners we have never met attending both. YAY! For those of you unable to attend, we’re also going to try much harder to do on-site updates and casts. So make sure you stay tuned!

This time around we discuss all the latest con announcements and chime in on the latest Matty Collector debacle. Do you realize we have used that word to describe Matty almost every single month? There have been tons of new sightings since Toy Fair. Some great new pre-orders have hit including the G.I. Joe Collectors Club’s 3.75” Adventure Team, FansProject’s Warbot Defender (Springer) and the newest and last wave of Star Wars Comic Packs. We also flesh out our new Toy Fair/SDCC contest a little more, so don’t forget to call in to 720.235.TOYS (8697) with your favorite thing from Toy Fair.

    First up it’s good to see jes is back @ 100%.

    I think that spreadsheet sound’s like a great idea.

    Kevin smith live’s in L.A but has a comic book store in jersey.

    sound’s like jes needs to rewatch Transfomers 2?

    @ silck reading on the can is the only way to read.

    the best thing from toy fair 2010 is……………………….

    If you wanna copy of the spreadsheet just let me know. Yeah the Kevin Smith thing was a brain fart. Especially since I listen to his damn podcast every week. Can’t wait to get your voicemail about Toy Fair.

    Cool, i’ll hit that VM reel soon & i really think that the next cast should be your first videocast like Toy break or is that a”no way in hell” idea, too much work?

    We have a CON coming up on april 10th called “Supernova” pop culture Expo.

    & is this a part 1 of 2 podcast?:)

    The video is quite a bit of work. We’ll have to do a couple short ones before we try a whole cast.

    Thanks for the heads up on your con.

    No just one part this time around.
