    He was a great action figure reviewer, did some amazing videos like "Action Figure Evolution" and was an all-around great guy.

    Oh man, if it's the same guy that I'm remembering, he also did some custom figures back in the day - if so, then I bought from him a Marvel Legends styled custom Hemingway that was based on the unreleased Generation X toybiz figure. Sad to hear! RIP

    This makes me sad. I liked his sense of humor as well as his accent and just watched his x-men wave vids. I also really enjoyed his "crazy ankle rocker pivot that I loooove", "widest stance with both feet flat on the ground", and his turnaround comparisons of figures. RIP Glenn.

    Edit: looks like he was very active on Facebook and YouTube right up to the end. Unexpected indeed:/. Makes you think about the days we take for granted.

    Nice to see collectors rallying around Glenn. We will continue to like and enjoy action figures -- as he would want us to.

    Man, this was shitty news to start the day with. Even worse when it turned out to be true.

    Glenn's videos were always the first ones I watched when I got home from work. Didn't really matter what he was reviewing or opening or whatever, I just loved his videos. He's also probably the most quotable reviewer there was.

    It's gonna take me a long time to get used to not seeing a new video from him...

    Damn. This sucks. He was one of the few good Marvel Legends reviewers that I liked because he knew his stuff. Thoughts go out to his family.

    What?! I'm shocked by the news! He's one of the better toy reviews that I enjoy watching!

    Rest in Peace, Glenn :(

    I had been subscribed to him for almost a year, and he actually help me write down a list of Marvel figures I want to buy. I loved his videos and his sense of humor. "It is a plane, is it a bird, well it sure as hell isn't superman just what the **** is it?!" Was one of my favorites.

    It really sucks that he's gone. I'm going to miss him saying "MMM bye" at the end of each video.

    On the same day he hit 100,000 subscribers no less :( 

    I only just started watching him this past year but I loved his enthusiasm and charisma. He will be missed. RIP.

    I loved his sense of humor and was very impressed with his customizing skills. He was my go to ML reviewer.

    I really liked the dude. Sad indeed.

    I've had some of his Star Wars figure videos pop up in my suggested watch list. I enjoyed them, and his action figure evolution videos. I am sorry to see him go so young. RIP
