Ever wondered how Steven Blum became the voice of Tom from Toonami, and how the show managed to make a successful return to Cartoon Network? Find out how in this video.

In this clip, Steve talks about how he worked with Logic on “The Incredible True Story”.

During the “Everything Voice Acting” panel, a fan asked prolific voice actor Steven Blum about the differences between voicing Spike Speigel from “Cowboy Bebop” and Mugen from “Samurai Champloo”, which gave us some interesting info behind the shows. Then things got weird with Dante Basco and Steven’s girlfriend and fellow voice actor, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. Real weird.

Lastly, when a fan asked Steven Blum about an inspiring line to use in moments of need, he gave them his famous empowering monologue from a Toonami bumper, “Fall seven times, get up eight”.

NY Toy Fair 2016: LEGO DC Comics & Star Wars Sets – VIDEO

LEGO is the original leader in brick construction sets, and the amount of licenses they have under their umbrella continues to grow at NY Toy Fair 2016.

This year, we were able to take a look at several of their licenses, including their DC Comics sets above. New sets from “Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice” join their collection, along with micro sets of famous DC characters in tiny cars that will be great for collectors of all ages.

In part two, we take a look at their newest Star Wars sets, which includes new construction sets from the original trilogy, Disney XD’s “Rebels”, and the newest show in the franchise, “The Freemaker Adventures”. There are some great items in this line, including some huge vehicles and sets. Not seen at this event was their massive set for the Battle of Hoth from “Empire Strikes Back”, which has to be seen to be believed.

Also shown (but not caught on video due to timing) were new sets from Captain America: Civil War, the upcoming Angry Birds movie, a new series of blind bag mini-figures, and more from their Nexo Knights and Ninjago series.
