LIVE from Toylanta 2017 (formerly Joelanta and the Great Atlanta Toy Convention), Phantom Troublemaker hosts an all-new Toy Stories panel!

Everyone has a toy story.

Join Phantom Troublemaker and a selection of special guests as they share reminiscences about the playthings they grew up with. The topic this year was “How We Play” - the panelists discussed how they played with the toys of their youth. Did we follow the cartoons and comics or create our own stories? Outside or inside? Did we mix toy lines or keep them separate?

Listen in as Phantom, Rad Ranger, Ryan Cadaver, Award-Winning author Bobby Nash, and Revolution SF’s Gary Mitchel tell you how they mixed brands, told stories, and waged miniature wars!
