Hey Everyone,

Again I am sorry for the very late to the party posts. I promise you geeks to be more active in posting what’s coming! NYCC was a blast. I got to see some really amazing stuff. One of my favorite companies to collect from is S.H.Figuarts. I have been a fan since I discovered the Green Ranger back in 2013 at Midtown Comics. Here is what was on display.

#Geek Approved Presents: Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Current & Upcoming Action Figures

Hey Everyone,

I had a lot of fun at New York Comic Con last year. Truthfully one of the best parts was getting to record all the upcoming One:12 Collective action figures that this company is debuting over the next few months/later this year. I happened to be 1 of the lucky few that got to purchase the exclusive “Tiger Stripe” Wolverine which I will be reviewing and posting later this week. Mezco has a lot of great stuff coming our way! Here is what I shot & again…. Always late to the party! Enjoy! ~Bri_2J~

#Geek Approved Presents: Hero Hair Interview NYCC 2K17

Hey Everyone,

Sorry for the long overdue delay on posting stuff. My regular job keeps me from having the time to post a lot,espeicially during the months of October thru December. Let me take you back to NYCC. As we all know, New York Comic Con is full of everything from Panels,tables,Autograph signings and many many more things that keep us going year after year. Roaming around the convention this year I stumbled upon a corner booth so terrific, I just had to ask if they would do me the honor and be my very first on camera interview. They humbly agreed and we shot the 15 minute interview. Please excuse the quality of the video as it was shot with my Galaxy S8 +. Thank you again Joseph for the assist! Here is the official interview with Travis & Erin who founded Hero Hair. I will leave the links to their official website and Instagram so you can see what they accomplish.

#GeekApproved Presents: Dream Big! My New York Toy Fair 2017 Experience

Where the month of February means the season of love for some and the return of AMC’s The Walking Dead for others, it’s a different kind of special season for geeks that do toy reviews or write about it for websites. It is called “New York Toy Fair”, a private event held annually, a seller’s opportunity to showcase all the new kinds of toys to buyers in the market of purchasing those items that all the geek girls and boys enjoy. This event allows press and media coverage to a limited extent. And I, your friendly, everyday nerd was fortunate enough to get a press pass this year and see for myself what this elite club was all about.
