Episode 127 might still be hungover from the Thanksgiving holiday, but we're back with a roundup of all the news from the toys-to-life genre since our last show! First we start with our normal banter, and do some VERY SPOILERY movie reviews. Eventually we get to the meat and potatoes of the show, starting off with the reincarnation of the Disney In…
 
Episode 126 is an episode we never wanted to do, but we've seen coming for quite some time. Unfortunately, the cancellation of LEGO Dimensions is all but a formality now, despite the formal announcement probably never happening. First we start with our normal banter, to lighten the mood a bit. Then we get right into breaking down the most recent st…
 
Episode 125 is delivered as promised, with Jason rejoining the show after a trip to the fair. Last week we may have only talked Pokemon, but we're back to business this week, covering the latest news from the toys-to-life franchises! First we talk about the exciting news from the Skylanders, with the release of the last Imaginators figure. Then we …
 
Episode 124 is a very special episode, as we toss all of the toys-to-life news aside and get down to the really important issues and topics ... Pokemon! That's right, this show is all about Pokemon this week! Better yet, we are joined by two of the best in the business, Ken and Adam from the Gotta Watch'em All podcast! For a majority of the episode…
 
Episode 123 was a long time coming, but thanks to the summer drought of news and information, as well as impossibly busy schedules, the wait for this episode was much longer than anticipated. Never fear, however, because we're back, and possibly better than before! After the normal banter that starts every show, we get down to business. First, we t…
 
Episode 122 is our first show since the big amiibo release and Beasts of Balance Kickstarter launch, but all we really want to talk about tonight is Jason's trip to Southern California for the D23 Expo and Disneyland vacation! First, Jason breaks down the highs and lows of his travel, his time at the parks, and the insanity that was the D23 Expo. W…
 
Episode 121 marks the return of everyone's favorite co-host, Jason Grier! We were lucky enough to catch him right before he heads out to California and the D23 Expo, so you know what that means - tons of fun to be had by all! First we talk about the shutting down of the Skylanders Battlecast servers. Then we discuss all the upcoming amiibo to be re…
 
Episode 120 features a slightly different lineup of hosts, as Jason was unable to make it to this show, so fan favorite Matt Sonnenberg stepped up and volunteered to fill the shoes of the fallen co-host! First we talk about Skylanders, and what we're still waiting for from them. Then we chatted about the continued silence of LEGO Dimensions. When w…
 
Episode 119 is recorded right on the heels of E3 2017, where tons of toys-to-life figures and games were shown off and discussed, getting the community of collectors excited all over again. While we weren't down in LA to experience the fun first hand, we hope this episode will still do justice to previous E3 episodes we've done! First we talk about…
 
Episode 118 is a special episode, for so many reasons. For one, it marks the return of Matt "Matty Nice" Sonnenberg back to the show. And secondly, we celebrate the success that we had as a team in selling a house. That's right ... we sold a house! First we talk about Skylanders, including the last known character popping up all over the globe. The…
 
Episode 117 is back to our tried and true form, as we start off the show with a whole bunch of random banter, about everything from the NBA Draft Lottery, to Mother's Day celebrations, big babies, and the Olive Garden. Eventually, we get to all the news from the toys-to-life genre, including the loss of an underscore! First we talk about Skylanders…
 
Episode 116 is classic Toys For Games After Dark fun, with a late Friday night recording session, a handful of news to cover, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on the mind - and in our hearts. First thing's first, however, as we cover the crazy world of collectable popcorn tins, for reasons no one can really explain. We are Groot, after all. First…
 
Episode 115 might not be rich with heavy-hitting news like last week, but that doesn't mean it's not rich with fun, excitement and humor! Despite not having much to talk about, there is one huge story to cover. As with all good mysteries, there is a story to be told here! First we talk about LEGO Dimensions, and what to expect in the upcoming wave.…
 
Well, guess what? The amiibo hype train has pulled back into the station, and we're all aboard. Choo choooooo! Episode 114 marks the return for us, and what a week to come back to! And better yet, we invite SCL Matt on to the show, just to try us help answer the burning question ... are they crazy enough to do what we think they might? First, we ta…

Episode 112 might have been a slow news week, but that didn't stop us from having fun! We chatted about Butterbeer ice cream, Beauty and the Beast, Tom Brady's jersey, and so much more. But really, the meat and potatoes was all about the wild amiibo of Hyrule, for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. First, we tried making sense of the missing Curs…
 
A quick roundup of the news from the last week, including: Still no Cursed Tiki Temple for Skylanders LEGO Dimensions Fun Packs break exclusivity Zelda amiibo broken by Daylight Saving's Time Kickstarters doing well Executive Producer:Jorge Torres!

Episode 111 marked the return of the expert himself, Jason, as he made his way back to the podcast after a long and magical vacation. Going to Disney World is awesome, but doing so immediately after becoming engaged to the love of your life? That's something special. After hearing all about the magical engagement, we finally get to the news. We bre…
 
A quick roundup of the news from the last week, including: The Cursed Tiki Temple is missing in Skylanders Nintendo doing all the right things with amiibo More LEGO Dimensions rumors about cancellation Executive Producer:Jorge Torres!

Episode 110 was a little different, as it turned out to be a one-on-one sit-down interview instead of the normal show. Josh sat down with Phil from SwapBots, and they talked all about the new upcoming game, how Augmented Reality is evolving the toys-to-life genre, and so much more! CHECK OUT SWAPBOTS ON KICKSTARTER! Executive Producers:Jorge Torres…
 
For Episode 109, Jason is MIA so we turn to a returning co-host to help push the show along and make it fun and enjoyable - Valerie Striplin! As per the norm, nothing about the show goes quite as planned, but thankfully Val brings her enthusiasm and bubbly personality, her jokes, and yes, even her grudges, and lays them all out on the line for this…
 
For Episode 108, we start off by learning a very, very valuable life lesson that everyone can appreciate. Eating a giant plate of nachos only a couple of hours before boarding an airplane is NOT a good idea, in any way, shape, or form. Of course, we only learn this because Jason took a bullet for the entire community, and we couldn’t thank him enou…
 
A quick roundup of the news from the last week, including: Disney Infinity Community Game Nights LEGO Dimensions at the movies Skylanders on Switch Breath of the Wild amiibo functionality Lightseekers partners with Toys"R"Us!!!

For Episode 107, we decided to class the joint up a bit. With the release of the LEGO Batman Story Pack for LEGO Dimensions, it only made sense to invite a special guest on to the show who knows plenty about not just the game, but a variety of other things, such as (but not limited to): The Fast and the Furious, wrangling Kevins, community manageme…

For Episode 106, we couldn’t even think about recording until the big meeting in Activision HQ took place, as the fate of the Skylanders franchise hung in the balance. Once the dust settled, however, we jumped right in, bringing not only the Skylanders update, but every other bit of news from the toys-to-life genre, to the show for you, the listeni…

In Episode 105, Jason makes his triumphant return to the show, just in time to help discuss a whole bunch of news from the toys-to-life genre. BUt first, we have to do what we do best - go on tangents! What decent episode of the Toys For Game ‘Cast wouldn’t have any good tangents, right? Oh, and we also have this weird problem trying to figure out …

Breaking from the norm is crucial to keeping the community on their toes, and when we decide to switch it up for a change, we go all the way with it. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Jason was unable to make the show for Episode 104, which meant we had to pull up the unofficial third member of the podcasting team to the coveted co-hosting chair … M…

The best use of lemons is to make lemonade, and that’s exactly what we do with a slow news week here at Toys For Games. Acting as a pre-show to the Second Annual Toys For Games Awards next week, and in the middle of what is typically a slower time for news, the highlight of Episode 102 easily has to be the passion and electricity for what turns out…

We’re back and better than before! Okay, maybe that might be debatable, but after a couple week hiatus because of family, the holidays, and travel, the world’s number one toys-to-life podcast has returned in its purest form!

Well, we’ve done it. We’ve reached the final episode in the double-digits, as we make the home stretch towards the big Episode 100!

With a vacation and the Thanksgiving holiday, we ended up taking a little break from recording, meaning Episode 98 was almost two weeks in the making. And trust us when we say, we missed you all dearly, but the break was much needed. Besides, in the gap between episodes, tons of stuff happened in the toys-to-life genre, including a huge rumor that …

Yes, we did just do a show just a couple of days ago. No, we aren’t crazy to put out a turn-and-burn episode so quickly afterwards. Despite not having a bunch of news to fill our time on this episode, we decide to do you - the listening audience - one better and give you a very special episode. In Episode 97, we talk to the creators and developers …

Trick or Treat! Okay, we may be a day late for randomly asking for candy from strangers while dressed up in costumes, but that doesn’t mean this episode is lacking the goodies or the debauchery. We have a jam-packed show for Episode 95, full of Halloween and Hippogriffs, and so much more. There’s cause for celebration, soap boxes to stand on, and p…

Look, we can’t always have exciting, big news weeks within the toys-to-life genre, right? As much as we would love to have a packed show full of awesome topics, sometimes we just have to work with the lemons given to us and make lemonade out of them. Besides, with The Great Pumpkin waiting just around the corner, it’s only fitting that this episode…
