Toy Geeks Behind The Counter brings you Matt Gondek and the first Waffle!


Ready to geek out with a fresh episode of Toy Geeks Behind The Counter? Deconstructed Waffle (S2 E5) with guest artist Matt Gondek as well as a trio of geeks – Ben, Jack V. and Jack M. It’s available for streaming on Youtube or below for your convenience.   Well-known for his exploded/deconstructed takes on pop culture including the Simpsons, Ricky and Morty to various super heroes, Matt showcased his first vinyl toy—Deconstructed Mouse produced by ToyQube—in both the sold-out OG version which you can win via TGBTC’s first waffle  and the brand-new mono version which will drop at his Clean Break pop-up in HK (from 3.22) as well as online.  Waffle, raffle, yep! Thanks to Matt, Toy Geeks is offering a chance to win the OG Deconstructed Mouse at a very reasonable $5 per chance/ticket.  Ends this Friday (3.16).

As always, we turned a critical eye towards several toys including the Rick and Morty Vnyl set from Funko, the Warhol Polaroids from Kidrobot, and several of the super cute Fluffy House vinyls.
