Welcome to Episode 9 everyone! First of all, we just want to let you all know how we are thinking of you all during this pandemic. We hope everyone is safe and healthy and want to thank all of the essential workers out there keeping the world running and of course our first responders, nurses, and doctors that are saving lives while working extremely hard to take care of us. Thanks for that. First topic of discussion is the Spawn action figure Kickstarter that Todd McFarlane launched earlier this month on April 8th. He talked at Toy Fair this year about how he wanted to pay tribute to the original Spawn toy line that he put out in the early 90's and this is his chance to give us a "remastered" version of the original Spawn figure from that line. It has been really successful and we talk about our thoughts on the campaign. There is one week left to pledge at the time of this release so you have a chance to get in on it. The main event here is our very first interview! We had the opportunity to chat with artist and toy sculptor David Arshawsky who had a hand in many of the toys we played with as kids and now collect as adults. We are huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy fans and love the Toxic Crusaders action figure lines that Playmates released in the late 80's and early 90's so to get the chance to speak to an artist that sculpted and designed these toys we love was an incredible experience. We hope you enjoy our chat with David and we encourage you to take a look at his current works and maybe stop by his Instagram page or his Patreon to show him some love. He was a true joy to talk to and we look forward to keeping in touch with his current projects.
