About
Brian Szabelski is Tomopop's Editor-in-Chief, stuck with an ever-growing collection of figures and toys. When he's not posting on Tomopop, he can usually be found working on any number of projects (some of which will be revealed in good time) or hunting down older figures he doesn't own but wants.

Born and raised in Detroit, he currently lives in northwest Ohio. He enjoys a number of things, including taiko drum playing, food, friends, watching movies, food, writing fiction and playing Team Fortress 2. He also longs for the day a Tomopup figure is available ... among two dozen others he'd like.

You can currently follow him on Twitter at @brianszabelski.
