Inside the Toy Box: Issue Seven


Inside the Toy Box sums up the past week’s toy news, top sellers, trends, pre-orders and any other great happenings in the world of toys and pop culture.

A lot of interesting stuff went up for pre-order and came of the truck this week.  I was also sent a list of a few items that will no longer be in production much longer.  EPVII Hot-Wheels Elite also went up too.  Word from Mattel is that these will most likely be allocated so get in line.  They are not due to ship for a whole year so you have time to save up.  I have a feeling these will be one and done.  Anyway, check out the list below and make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get all the latest updates in NYCC Exclusives.  

Hot Topic will have an FREE Batman comic for Batman Day.  All you have to do is buy some Batman swag online this Saturday 9/27.  While there take advantage of some sales.  20% off Tees GETSOME  (ends 9/27), 20% off site HEYAUTUMN (9/28-10/7).  Hot Topic is also the exclusive retailer of the new popular POP! Tees.
