Nerd Lunch Episode 68: Failed movie toy lines

Nerd Lunch Podcast

This week we are joined by Kirk Howle from Schlock Treatment who follows his podcast colleague Doug from last week. Unfortunately, Jeeg was not able to join us so we called in 4th chair regular Shawn Robare to fill in. The topic this week is failed movie toy lines.

The Shadow figure

We talk about a few movie toy lines that work and why we think they work.  We then parlay that into some movie toy lines that failed and why we think they failed.  Movie toys we discuss involve Star Wars, The Lone Ranger, The Shadow, Dick Tracy and several more you probably didn’t even realize existed.

Get your fix for both movie and toy nostalgia with this week’s episode and download this episode from iTunes or listen to it on Feedburner.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. I am regular reader, how are you everybody? This piece of writing posted at this web site is in fact
    good.
