Pixel Vlogs – Two Vlog Series Available Now on The Pixel Dan Channel

DID YOU KNOW…

That I have two VLOG series on my channel?

The Pixel Dan Vlog gives you a glimpse into my life on the road, doing this crazy adventure through the world of toys! Follow me to New York Toy Fair to learn what I put into covering the event, follow me to Colorado and get a behind the scenes look at filming the series “From Plastic to Pixels,” and more! This Vlog will always be updated with new content as I travel to various places such as San Diego Comic Con and more! It’s a fun look at what happens behind the microphone and camera of Pixel Dan.

Toy Hunting with Pixel Dan is my Vlog series that follows me to toy shows, toy stores, and conventions in search for cool new pieces for my collection! One of my favorite things about toy hunting is just seeing all of the cool stuff that’s out there. Sometimes it’s rare, sometimes it was forgotten until I stumbled upon it. But it’s always fun, and I wanted to start capturing those experiences for others to enjoy with me!

I hope you enjoy these shows on The Pixel Dan Channel! I love to keep a good mixture of different types of toy related content on my channel, because it’s ALL fun to me and I enjoy sharing my passion with the world. Of course, you can still find normal toy reviews and more!

Help me out my sharing, subscribing to my channel, hitting the “Like” button on the videos you enjoy, and leaving me comments!

Thanks everyone! I appreciate you all!

Los Angeles, CA. (May 7, 2017)  – Fresh Monkey Fiction is proud to announce another Kickstarter campaign for their retro-inspired action figure line Amazing Heroes.

“Thanks to over 300 devoted backers, we funded Amazing Heroes Wave 1 on Kickstarter back in late 2015,” Bill Murphy of Fresh Monkey Fiction says. “We’re super excited to see Amazing Heroes return with another great lineup that includes even more popular heroes!”

The Amazing Heroes Wave 2 collection features a selection of creator owned characters: Mike Baron and Steve Rude’s Nexus, Mike Grell’s Jon Sable, a cosmic version of Michael Allred’s Madman, Dean Haspiel’s The Red Hook, Vito Delsante and Sean Izaakse’s Stray, Joe Staton and Nicola Cuti’s E-Man, Ray-Anthony Height’s Midnight Tiger and Mark Verheiden’s The American. This will be the first time many of them will become action figures.

Each retro-inspired Amazing Heroes figure stands 4.5″ tall and includes collector friendly interchangeable backer cards.

The Kickstarter campaign is currently live and runs through June 5th, 2017. You can support the Amazing Heroes Wave 2 Kickstarter campaign by going to

A Galaxy of Action Figure Savings – Star Wars Newspaper Ads Book on Kickstarter

The latest Star Wars toy book from Philip Reed is now up on Kickstarter! I’ve been a big fan of Philip’s Star Wars books so far, and this one looks to be another must-have!

A Galaxy of Action Figure Savings, a companion to last year’s Collect These Figures and Accessories, is a 96-page hardcover book loaded with newspaper ads, toy photos, commercial screenshots, and images of related marketing materials that I have managed to chase down. As with last year’s collection of newspaper ads, the advertisements featured in this book were captured digitally and edited in Photoshop.

Over two hundred images are packed within this book, giving all of us a closer look at Kenner’s Star Wars toys as they existed when new in stores. You can see the actual sale prices for the toys and follow along as Kenner’s Star Wars line fades at retail.

Animal Warriors of the Kingdom Series 1 Now Available on Kickstarter

Animal Warriors of the Kingdom, a new 4″ action figure line from Spero Studio, is now up on Kickstarter!

Spero Studio was founded by Jason Bienvenu and Brandon Gary, inspired by the 4″ scale toy lines of the mid 70’s, 80’s, & 90’s Spero focuses on bringing back the fun and joy from these eras with high quality products featuring modern articulation and accessories!

Figure design and control art was done by Jason Bienvenu, and beautifully sculpted by Jose Fernandez and Fabiano Carlos Coelho.

The figures will be created at the same factory as Boss Fight Studios with our good friend Alex Wu acting as liaison!

ANIMAL WARRIORS OF THE KINGDOM™ Series One: will consist of Ape, Canine, and Feline warriors, including the series’ main protagonist the albino ape Pale and his vile nemesis Baron Kah Lee. Each figure features 17 points of articulation as well as weapon accessories.

THE FIGURES: are 1:18 scale figures similar to G.I. Joe, Marvel Universe, H.A.C.K.S, Marauder Task Force, Dime Novel Legends, Eagle Force Returns, and Zombie Lab figures. The figures are sculpted and colored to be faithful to the comic book source material while remaining highly detailed and having great crossover potential for lines like those mentioned above and even Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Mythic Legions!

SERIES ONE WAVE ONE

FIGURE INCLUDES: 1 Figure, accessories and removable armor! Mix and match your figures weapons and gear to create unique army builders. Click here to check out the Kickstarter Campaign.
