Toy Collecting in the Modern Age: The High Price of Having Fun

Are mass-market collector toys dying? The price of raw materials and costs of the production process continue to skyrocket. Action figures that were $7.99 five years ago are now in stores for over $20. At that price can you still be a "completist?" Is Kickstarter the better way to go for an up-and-coming toy company to get figures in the hands of collectors? Are toy collectors prepared for the onslaught of all of the new Star Wars figures that will come from the new movies? A panel of toy industry insiders and collectors examine just what is going on today and where it's all going in the future. Moderator Daniel Pickett (ActionFigureInsider.com, host of Geek Shall Inherit podcast) is joined by industry experts Justin Donaldson (collector, director, The Tournament of Nerds), Jason Lenzi (co-founder, Bif Bang Pow!), Scott Neitlich (director of play, Jakks Pacific, collector), and David Vonner (senior designer/product manager Spin Master).
