Hi. My name is Dan. I like toys.

In fact, I like toys so much that I created a YouTube page to share my love of the toy industry and toy collecting hobby over 10 years ago! I’m still here, and still loving it.

For the past decade I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing various action figures and toys, both brand new and vintage. I’ve traveled around the country covering industry shows like New York Toy Fair and San Diego Comic Con to bring you my unique perspective. And I do it all in the name of fun…because what’s the point in collecting toys if you’re not having fun?!

In an effort to keep moving forward and try new things, I recently launched a new series titled Toysplosion. This is my attempt to bring viewers a more polished and episodic series about toys and the toy collecting hobby. With a heavy influence on retro toys, with just a hint of modern collectible goodness, the purpose of this show is less about reviewing toys, and more about allowing you to reminisce about the enjoyment an old action figure provided you, or possibly introduce you to a toy line you’ve never even heard of.

So, why the Patreon? I don’t think I need to tell you that a lot of time, love, and even money is put into my channel. But that’s really not your problem. And truth be told, I love this and I will always  find a way to keep doing this.

But every little bit helps. So if you enjoy what I do, a “tip” here through Patreon is truly appreciated. But my content will always be free. I want you to really want to support me. I don’t want you to feel obligated.

Regardless, I appreciate any and all support, even if you’re just here to watch my content. Thanks for reading, thanks for watching…and until next time!

The Rare and Bizarre Masters of the Universe Figures of Top Toys! – Toysplosion

Welcome to Toysplosion – the show all about the hobby of toy collecting and getting nostalgic about toy history!

In today’s episode, we’re exploring the world of foreign Masters of the Universe action figure releases! Top Toys distributed officially licensed MOTU figures in Argentina in the 80’s and 90’s. This sometimes resulted in some bizarre and very different looking action figures than we were used to seeing in the US!

Black Blood Mosquitor, the Blue Road Ripper, and Camo Khan – all on today’s episode of Toysplosion!

Toysplosion – A new episodic series about toys coming soon to The Pixel Dan Channel!

Back in January I mentioned in an update video that one of my goals for 2018 was to do more episodic content. I wanted to try my hand at an informative series of videos that felt more like a show with a nice dose of vintage toy goodness.

I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes to get this series pieced together, and I’m happy to announce that the first episode of my new show will be dropping VERY soon!

Get ready for TOYSPLOSION! Time to drop the nostalgia bomb. 🙂 Coming soon! to YouTube.com/Pixel-Dan
