Equipment: A Visit to Well Played Toys from Toy Fair 2020

Some of you may recall from last year, my frantic search throughout the Javits convention center trying to find the company that was producing Lost in Space toys. In a cruel twist of irony I was lost and unable to find my destination. After bad directions, non-functioning elevators and having to juggle appointments I finally found the Well Played Toys booth. I vowed that it would not happen again this year and it didn’t. On day one of Toy Fair I found the Well Played booth. Continue reading

Equipment: Mattel at Toy Fair 2020…Barbie, Hot Wheels, Jurassic World and He-Man!

I love the Monday breakfast with Mattel. It is more than just a booth tour, it is an event. The Mattel booth is not accessed by just everyone since it is tucked away on one of the upper floors. The only way to get past security is to have an appointment and I have to say I enjoy being on the list. This year I skipped the breakfast part so I could get into the showroom before my colleagues. It didn’t go exactly as planned since I ran into someone I knew just inside the door. By the time we were done chatting the room began to fill. Continue reading

Equipment: Diamond Select Toys at Toy Fair 2020

We do a fair amount of reviews throughout year for the fine folks over at Diamond Select Toys so it is always great to see what new things will soon be available. I did notice that there were a larger number of statues and busts in the booth this year. I’m not sure if it was my imagination or that there really were more since Diamond acquired Gentle Giant. Not talking bad about them, it was just an observation. The statues and busts are highly detailed and are beautiful. Continue reading

Equipment: A View from The Coop at Toy Fair 2020

Toy Fair would not be complete without a stop at The Coop. I still remember the first time I stopped at their booth. After just a short chat I knew they were my kind of people. Aside from the wonderful crew behind the scenes, The Coop has an amazing line of products. Each year they add new and unique items to their lineup which is a good thing for everyone. This year I was introduced to the line, Handmade by Robots. These vinyl figures are a unique take on the collectible vinyl figure trend. Continue reading

Equipment: Bloodshot Action Figure from McFarlane Toys-Review

I have to admit I don’t know much about the character of Bloodshot. All I really know is that Bloodshot is part of the pantheon of heroes belonging to Valiant Comics and the first of these characters to get their own motion picture. Speaking of Valiant Comics, you may not have heard of the company but it was started by Jim Shooter (from Marvel) back in 1989. The company and characters have loyal fans and they have waited a long time for these characters to be shown some love.

Equipment: Hasbro at Toy Fair 2020

It should come as no surprise that the hot ticket invite at Toy Fair has to be Hasbro showroom. Just prior to Toy Fair 2020 Hasbro renewed their arrangement with Disney which should keep us in Marvel Legends and Star Wars toys for the foreseeable future. I was happy when I heard the news but I was happier about the return of my childhood favorite, G.I. Joe. The Joe team will be 6 inches tall, joining the popular Black Series scale. Continue reading
