Needless Things Podcast 149 – Buddy Finethy from Toylanta
Phantom Troublemaker talks to the delightful Buddy Finethy, artist, designer, and one of the showrunners for Joelanta & The Great Atlanta Toy Convention!
Ever since receiving his first GI Joe figure in the early 70s, Buddy Finethy has had a passion not just for Joes, but for the art of toys. From following the Grateful Dead on tour to working with Hasbro to starting up the revered Joelanta convention, Buddy has had a heck of an interesting life!
