WATCH: Saxon’s Top Ten Toys of 2013 Video

January 7th, 2014 by Marc Comments

He’s a busy man, is our Saxon.  

Over the last twelve months he’s reviewed hundreds, millions… ok, around 60 toys, collectibles and items of memorabilia.  But which items did he love in particular?  Which items floated his metaphorical boat?  A metaphorical boat floating metaphorically in a metaphorical sea of awesomeness (Metaphorically speaking).  Well, you’re about to find out, as he’s only gone and put together a video counting down his top ten toys of 2013.  He’s good like that.  And just for sheer entertainment value he’s also thrown in his bottom five worst toys of the year, and as always they receive a gruesome punishment for their crimes against humanity. Well, not all humanity.  Some humanity.  Toy-collecting humanity.

Give the video a watch below and as always let us know what you thought, is there something he reviewed over the last 12 months which should have been included?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
