  2. Let's hope this series really takes off and Netflix renews it for a second season. Then they'll be able to do more awesome toy lines.

  3. Hopefully they'll also be sure to include the Atari, IntelliVision, and ColecoVision.

    1. Hopefully not. Video games have been covered enough in all kinds of media. Bring on the actual toys.

  6. I hope 60's and 70's toys are covered as well, perhaps even the 50's... Marx, Remco, Deluxe Reading would all be of interest!

  13. I believe this will be like an 8-episode season 1 and if the numbers are correct, we will get a season 2. So let's hope the numbers are high enough. This show does have a lot of potential. And I want to see it until every toyline and company is properly represented.
