The toy aisles have gone retro! Hit movies and TV shows are no longer a "sure thing" for toy manufacturers these days. Instead of chasing after "the new hotness," most toy companies are now looking to trigger the nostalgia centers in fans' brains by bringing back some of their favorite action figure lines from the past 40 years-and not just popular characters, but also that retro "Mego" and "Kenner" style! Hear it all from a panel of expert toy makers who are bringing back these figures and characters of yesteryear as well as adapting some modern licenses to that retro style. Moderator Daniel "Julius Marx" Pickett from ActionFigureInsider.com will be joined by Bill Benecke (Mattel Design), Ed Cato (Captain Action Ltd), Randy Falk (NECA), Jason Lenzi (BifBangPow!), Eric "Cornboy" Mayse (The Four Horsemen Design), Frank Supiot (Super 7), and Chuck Terceira (Diamond Select Toys).
