Pod 186: Fun and Games with Toy Polloi

We're getting our new year off to a great start with Toy Polloi! An expert on vintage toys, Dave is better known by his social media moniker Toy Polloi. His YouTube channel is closing in on 50,000 subscribers and includes videos on Star Wars toys, He-Man toys, Action Man toys... and toys from multiple Gerry Anderson series! In this episode, Dave explains why he prefers Space: 1999 to Thunderbirds and why he thinks Terrahawks is worth watching if you haven't checked it out before. Plus, Terry Adlam is back in the studio for more New Year's hijinks, shenanigans, and tomfoolery!

Playing Officer Orrin in Gerry Anderson's last live action series 'Space Precinct' clearly wasn't enough to put Richard off the worlds of Gerry Anderson!

As well as co-hosting the Gerry Anderson Podcast and the almost-monthly Facebook, Twitch, Periscope and Youtube broadcast, FabLive, Richard has also taken parts in the audio series 'Terrahawks' and the pilot minisode for the forthcoming 'Gerry Anderson's Firestorm'.
