Do You Fidget Bro? - Too Many Games

Since Fidget Spinners are so popular these days I decided to take one to Too Many Games to find out if various members of the YouTube Community could Fidget. It turned out Screenwave Media was giving out Fidget Spinners at the Con. So here's a bunch of my friends Fidgeting. Mike Matei, Pixel Dan, Keith Apicary, The Game Chasers, 8-Bit Eric and more.

Marvel Legends Edge of Spider-Verse: Ben Reilly Spider-Man

Today we are taking a look at a Marvel Legends figure based on the Ben Reilly Spider-Man. I was a big fan of this costume in the 90's and I'm happy to have this Edge of Spider-Verse Spider-Man figure.

I did this drawing of the Ben Reilly Spider-Man fighting Sandman back in 1996! So crazy.

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!

Pixel Dan doing is Pixel Dan thing at Too Many Games last year.

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.

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.
