Hey everybody, we're back with another episode of the Tomocast! For this episode, I'm joined by Andres Cerrato and Rio McCarthy to talk about our Toy Fair 2014 coverage. We discuss some of the better things to come out of the...
So here's that thing where we record our voices and splice it together with energetic music. It's called the Tomocast and this is its 35th episode. After being absent for so long, we figured it made sense to find out what you...
It's been so long since we've recorded a Tomocast that we've decided to open the show up to you guys. Send us your questions that will be answered by Rio, Jonathan, Kristina and myself and we'll answer them. The more interesting and bizarre, the better. I'm talking about "pondering the existence of Cthulhu" bizarre. I want some head-scratchers people! We record Wednesday evening, so be sure to have them in by then.
[Last chance! We record in a couple of hours, so get those questions in.]
Wow, that took a while, huh? Well, when you combine a company that suddenly decides to drop a majority of the podcasts they host and the rigors of day-to-day life, sometimes it takes a bit of time to get things rolling again. Thankfully, things have been sorted and the Tomo-faithful should be getting our voices blasted into their ears again! Unfortunately, this comes at the price of losing the old Tomocast RSS feed, so no iTunes for now. Give it a couple of episodes and we'll have that bad boy up again! Feel free to ask any questions in the comments.
Anyway, back from the distant time that was late-January, I bring you our Dragon Ball Z episode. Highly anticipated by the folks involved, it was a ton of fun to record. Chris Pranger, Rio McCarthy and Andres Cerrato brought their A-game as we discussed one of, if not the most popular shonen franchises ever made. You can download the episode here, use our RSS feed or hit the jump to stream it, as well as read the show notes. Enjoy!
It's finally that time folks. After all the hype on (and off) the air, Tomocast will finally be hitting up Akira Toriyama's animated classic, Dragon Ball Z. We'll of course be talking about the series that was and still is such a big hit both in Japan and the States. Dragon Ball and GT will also be mentioned, but expect a lot of blond hair and muscle talk. As is the usual for these things, we need questions, so please ask away!
Note that we're currently having a problem with our host, so previous episodes are currently unavilable. As soon as things are worked out, we'll have this and all of our old episode back up and running!
It has definitely been one helluva year in the toy collecting community and at Tomopop. A lot of changes have occurred, but the one thing that has been consistent is our drive to bring you the best in toy news and entertainment. It has been my absolute pleasure to host Tomocast during 2011, made that much more enjoyable by having some of the best folks on the internet as guests. I've brought many of these people back to talk about the best and worst things of 2011 and what they're looking forward to in 2012.

That's right folks, we finally got another episode up! Rio McCarthey, Andres Cerrato and Chris Pranger joined me to talk about the perilous world of licensed toys. We had a good time recounting some of the worst pieces of plastic that we got our hands on and, on occasion, the nicer toys that we got. The pictures in the gallery are some of the toys that we brought up on air, so you can suffer along with us!

Sorry for the delay folks, but it's time yet again for Tomocast to caress the inside of your ears. Using the seductive voices of Rio McCarthy, Andres Cerrato and Chris Pranger, we're going to talk about licensed toys and the movies/shows they come from. We're bound to get rowdy with this one, especially if my memories of the old Star Trek: The Next Generation toys comes back at the right moment.
As usual, we'll need your questions, so go ahead and hit us up!
This is one of those episodes that I've been waiting to do for a while. I love the Macross franchise, what with the typically excellent music, dramatic stories, sexy ladies and sexier planes. So for this episode, I got associate editor Andres Cerrato, Japanator associate editor Hiroko Yamamura and MAHQ's Chris Guanche together to talk about the series as a whole, along with the toys, music, planes, etc.

Tonight I'm joined by Tomopop associate editor Andres Cerrato, Japanator associate editor Hiroko Yamamura and Chris Guanche of Mecha & Anime Headquarters fame to talk about the seminal Macross series. We'll talk about the sexy robots, the pretty animus and about how much I love Minmei. Seriously, I even named my car after her.
As per the usual, we're going to need some questions, so go ahead and drop some in the comments!
Welcome to the 31st episode of the Tomocast, where legendary actors are pitted against each other in the comments. Don't worry,it makes sense in the context of the episode. This time around, we have a listener questions episode, where we solicited your queries and answered them for as long as we possibly could. I was joined by head honcho Brian Szabelski and newcomers Jackie Zysk and Natalie Kipper.
As usual, you can download the episode here, subscribe (and rate!) on iTunes or listen to it after the jump. Enjoy!
It's the time again folks. Like a scantily clad lady of the night, I'm soliciting questions from the Tomo-masses for another episode. The topic? There is none! Go ahead and ask anything you want. From the color of our socks to the shows we watch or the games we play, the field is pretty much open.
As for guests, I've got editor-in-chief Brian Szebelski as well as newcomers Jackie Zysk and Natalie Kipper. Be sure to give them a warm Tomocast welcome! We're recording Monday evening, so you have until then to ask your questions. Best one gets a prize!
[REMINDER: We're recording tonight! Get your last minute questions in.]
Disney and Pixar's animated classic Toy Story has earned many accolades in the time since it's release 16 years ago. All of those rewards pale in comparison to the ultimate prize: the one and only Tomocast commentary. You too can share in Toy Story's glory and listen as Kristina Pino, Rio McCarthy, Chris Pranger and I watch this fantastic film and crack wise. Trust me, after you've seen Revoltech Woody's antics, there's no way you'll be able to watch this movie and not giggle through half of it.
