MARSHAM TOY HOUR - Ep 13 - Jon-Paul Kaiser

This week, Gary and Tyler travel via Skype to the glorious UK, to talk with one of the pioneers of the UK custom scene Jon Paul Kaiser. More a conversation than interview, the guys talk toys, leaks and sneak peaks, how JPK got his start, and a brief lesson on the history of whaling art! Plus, we announce our winner from our Horrible Adorables contest.

UPDATE/DISCLAIMER: Gavriel here, this is the only episode of Marsham Toy Hour that will be posted here on Tenacious Ninja, simply to point out that Discordia Culture Shop and Designer Toy Summit are both mentioned in this podcast and my wife Starr Mignon and I are the minds behind both.

I will also take the time to respond to something mentioned in this episode that we are glad they brought up: Designer Toy Summit has a restriction on mass-produced corporate toys. We had to exclude certain items in order to keep everyday convention toy vendors out of this event. Otherwise it would cease to be a Designer Toy convention. That is the only reason for this rule.

EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE ARE: Customs based on mass-produced toys, items an artist had their hand in such as anything by Kozik, and items licensed and made in limited editions of less that 1000 such as Super7 Star Wars items. We feel these criteria will please the toy artist community greatly and are  pleased to provide them with a properly biased-in-their-favor environment to sell their wonderful creations.
