Toy Fair--Get Your Wallets Ready

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard about the recent Toy Fair in New York. And if you have been living under a rock, you're probably the sort of invertebrate creature that wouldn't really care about such mammalian endeavors, unless you're Patrick Star. Patrick Star might care about the small plastic distractions we call action figures. But I digress....

Anyway, Toy Fair is a time for manufacturers to show off what they've got planned for the new year. If you really haven't heard about this, check it out at sites such as www.cooltoyreview.com.

In a nutshell....why do people say that? what nutshell? I'm not eating nuts right now, in fact I seldom do, especially the kind you have to crack yourself....uh...anyway in a nutshell, here's my take on the upcoming year:

AT-TE---whoa! Gotta have that.

Star Wars in general: gotta love the vehicles, we'll see about the rest...burned out lately.

DC Universe: I'm completely geeking out over this stuff. Especially the 3 3/4" DC line!

Indiana Jones: I love Indy, but I can already see the massive clearance section at Wal-Mart. This will be the overkill toy of the year that fights everything else for shelf space. It happens every summer with at least one toy line. (think Spidey.)

That's enough for now. Gotta get to work on that second job to pay for this stuff.
