Toy Fair is upon us again, and I find myself asking the same question. Why do I continue to choose NYCC over Toy Fair? Every year I also tell myself to get my act together because I have the resources to make both happen. In the meantime, for those of us who can’t attend, there are plenty of others out there sharing their experiences. Our go to for all the current Toy Fair happenings is always @cobrashowjoes on twitter. We seem to be on the same brain waves as these guys, so it’s always fun watching them share their experience. Expect to see a lot from them. We will try and share as much as possible but our main focus will be NECA’s reveals. They are one of our favorite toy makers and crush it every year. Judging from their Twitter feed, it seems this year could be extra special. (more…)
Everyone knew Warner Brothers was looking for a new home for their DC toy license once Mattel was done with it. It was announced a few weeks back that some of the DC licenses were heading over to Spin Master. Most of those were role playing and other games. At the time, no one knew where the action figures were headed, but we do now. No one, me included, saw McFarlane toys swinging for the fences and coming out on top. (more…)

If you were looking to snag the DC Batgirl & Nightwing Vinimate 2-Pack on Free Comic Book Day May 5th, you’re going to be out of luck. Due to shipping delays, Diamond Select Toys will not be delivering the 2-Pack to stores for sale until May 30th. Because of this delay, Diamond is letting retailers increase, decrease or delete their order entirely until May 7th. They are also giving a little extra discount for those who keep their orders as they are or actually increase them. This means in the long run there could be more or less out in the wild when the dust settles. I have a feeling most stores will be decreasing their orders, as the hopes were to sell them with the increased crowds. When ever they do make it to you LCS they should run you around $19.99 (more…)
So I got a delivery notification for the final Legion of Collectors box and naturally went to YouTube to check out Funko’s video. Well I guess they were still worn out from ECCC and haven’t got around to it year. In the meantime I went to eBay to check listing to see what was in the box. I am hoping they get a video posted soon because it looks like they went all out with their finale box. The items themselves might be ‘meh’ but the value is for sure there with the amount of stuff you get. Check it all out below if you’re curious. Like stated earlier, this is the last subscription box for Legion of Collectors as they move them to retailer exclusives. (more…)
