Today on GeekFest Rants join us as Carlos reviews his collection of not so old Battlestar Galactica Hasbro Titanium ships.  He goes over all these fantastic looking ships from the groundbreaking Sci-Fi Channel series.  This also includes a few classic 1978 style ships that were part of this line. 

Then we'll take a trip to an imaginary Geek Mall.  What if we could put together a mall filled with just all the nerdy, geeky stores we love?  Well, here is your chance.  It's a genre fan's dream come true.  Too bad it's just a dream.

Today on GeekFest Rants join Carlos and special guest author, Andrew E.C. Gaska, as they look at the history of toxic fandom with events like Gamergate and Comicsgate.  Then Carlos returns to cover the Rebel Force Radio controversy with the conclusion of these 3 part investigative reports. 

The great, late Stan Lee said it best "The world may change and evolve, but the one thing that will never change is the way that we tell our stories of heroism. Stories have room for everyone, regardless of their race, gender, religion, or color of their skin. The only things we don't have room for are hatred, intolerance, and bigotry. That man next to you, he's your brother. That woman over there, she's your sister...Excelsior!"

Today on GeekFest Rants, Carlos dips into comics and posters.  First off, he reviews the recent Planet of the Apes Visionaries graphic novel.  This highly anticipated volume gives all Apes fans an alternate visual look at the classic story from from the perspective of one of the film's original screenwriters and Twilight Zone legend, Rod Serling.

 Happy Halloween kids! This week we have a SUPER AWESOME episode of the show ahead of us. Let's start with the small stuff first. We lead off with a new song from ship DJ Iceberg Thirteen and then move onto a little talk about AMC's hit show, Fear The Walking Dead and then it's At The Movies where we talk about a GREAT movie I saw called Sicario. It was dope.

Then it's on to the Main Event which is sure to be a classic bit of Toys R Us Report History.  We went Ghost Hunting At The Haunted Toys R Us in Sunnyvale California. Watch this bit from Real People to learn more..

It's all in the episode though. So you can hear it there but it's also fun to watch. Basically it's all haunted up and me an my boy Iceberg Thirteen went down there to see what's what. I'm not a big believer in this sort of thing but we've came up with a recorded that might change my mind! You have to hear it. It's pretty creepy. 

Look dudes, this is going to be something people talk about for years. You wanna be part of that right? Like all cutting edge and in the know as far as what people talk about right?
