IMG_8703

Ahhh… The fresh smell of a brand-new, mint Toy Geeks Behind the Counter episode.  S2 E11 features LA-based power player Patrick Lam of Munky King and is available to stream in glorious 1080p on Youtube or right below.   I start things off with a quick recap of Shanghai Toy Show—more detailed recap here—and then we dive into looking at several of the sweet toys I scored at STS including Lazy by Benson Wong and Devil Toys, The Ink Monkey King by J.T Studio, the Nano TEQ63 from QUICCS and Devil Toys, the brand-new Kaiju Hunting mini series from Paradise and more.  Sliding from Shanghai to MK, Patrick shows us the new 10th Anniversary Possessed which drops on May 4th, the extended lineup of ‘The Messenger’ designed by kaNO including the sexy incoming frosted edition.
