Veteran designers and art directors discuss the toy making process, concepting, pitching, problem solving, packaging, and more.

AFI has gathered a diverse grouping of panelists including Jose Alvarez (senior designer, Jakks Pacific), Bill Beneke (senior project designer, Mattel), Jim Fletcher (creative director, creative services at DC Entertainment), Jean St. Jean (co-owner, head sculptor, designer at Creatureplica), Jason Langston (staff designer at Mattel), Jerry Macaluso (supervising art director, Pop Culture Shock Collectibles), and Brock Otterback (creative director, toys/collectibles, Mondo). Hosted by Daniel Pickett (ActionFigureInsider, Geek Shall Inherit Podcast).
