This is my first experience at Toy Fair with Shocker Toys. And, I can tell you already this is one of my favorite companies this year. Shocker Toys was founded in 2000 by Geoff Beckett Jr. The company has since been incorporated and Geoff remains its CEO. I had the opportunity to meet with Geoff at Toy Fair and found him to be a very approachable, incredibly cool man who is very passionate about his products and extremely interested in fan input. I have but compliments for both the people and the products of Shocker Toys. Here is the rundown of their products shown at Toy Fair.
