November 7, 2018 Author: Gary Viola

On October 28th I ventured to the Best Western in North Haven, CT to search for collectibles at the Northeast Toy and Collectibles Show. While I primarily collect Hasbro’s G.I. Joe, I also look for select Transformers, M.A.S.K., and other properties that I had a connection to in my youth. It’s also a good excuse Read More

GAMING POINT OF LOU – LIKE, WHATEVER

October 15, 2018 Author: Lou Federico

  “Whatever” party game knows exactly what it wants to be and makes no compromises in getting there. Occupying the same shelf space as industry titan “Cards Aginst Humanity” is no easy task, and getting yourself noticed even harder. Some do this by straight up copying the formula, others do it by looking at what Read More

THE PINT INVADES – CONNECTICON / CT F.I.G.

August 18, 2018 Author: Lou Federico

    Con’s have certainly grown in the past decade. I remember a time when a “big show” was in a large hotel’s conference room (sometimes they actually rolled the room dividers back and used TWO conference rooms!!!!), and there were maybe a couple hundred sweaty nerds digging through longboxes looking for that one or Read More
