You should know the drill by now and if you don’t please click THIS POST because it wraps the whole group of adventures together for you. Yes my friends, PiercingMetal is exploring the American International Toy Fair and with this installment am finishing up the discoveries found at the LEGO pavilion.

Minifigs galore!  I love these and am tempted to start a collection.  There are a ton of them though.

Exploring Toy Fair 2018: LEGO (Part Two)

Before I begin, here is a quick question – Have you seen THIS POST yet because if you haven’t I’ve lined out that the PiercingMetal Media Outlet was again exploring the American International Toy Fair and that link will bring a run down of what has gone online before this narrative. If you’ve caught up we can continue along with the offerings from the LEGO brand who had an early morning press preview before the convention opened. If you didn’t see the first part click HERE so you can enjoy it in sequence. I will continue along with some of their “Star Wars” licensed items.

Exploring Toy Fair 2018: LEGO (Part One)

Hey there my friends, so as you can tell I am keeping the posts a coming from the recent adventures at the American International Toy Fair. Much like my coverage of the annual NY Comic Con, this one has a lot of chapters since we are shining light on many different companies. I lined this all out on THIS POST, so please use that as a handy guide if necessary. Today I’ll start sharing my findings from the LEGO pavilion and this visit would be my first time in a few years of doing so. Their booth is an explosion of activity and they set up the group media visit at 7AM on the Saturday morning of Toy Fair. I was excited to come in but boy oh boy did I need a cup of coffee. Let’s explore the assorted lines of awesome that they have this year.

That’s some terrific stuff for sure and what a nice variety of properties to inspire creativity in the minds of the young and older folks like myself. My favorites so far would fall along the lines of the DC and Marvel Superheroes. I am a big fan of the minifigs that they make and feel one can collect only those and run out of room in a short amount of time. I’ll stop with the LEGO brand here for the time being but don’t worry because I still have two more installments from this incredible company. For those curious, I did get my cup of coffee since they had set up a nice little spread of that and some bagels and danish. I was pretty exhausted since I spent most of yesterday at the LEGO Live event down at Basketball City and then had a crushing Metal show to attend. No rest for the wicked they always say. Stay tuned to the website for the next chapter and please follow along with our social networks to see more coolness from the event along with scores of other stuff. Just give some likes to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. See you next time around.

Exploring Toy Fair 2018: Mezco Toyz (Part Two)

Hey there my friends, so as lined out a few times already on THIS POST, The PiercingMetal Media Outlet is giving the American International Toy Fair the once over. Today I am back to share the rest of the stuff found at Mezco Toyz during their press preview and if you didn’t see the first chapter just click HERE so you can start off properly and see this the way you were supposed to.  This post is almost exclusively dedicated to their One:12 Collective line and I don’t think any self respecting geek needs a reminder of which figure is which.  Let’s go.

Exploring Toy Fair 2018: Mezco Toyz (Part One)

Hey friends, I am continuing along with my presentations that were discussed some days ago on THIS POST. Yes, the PiercingMetal Media Outlet is deeply involved at the American International Toy Fair which is an event that we have attended now for eight years. Today I am sharing one of my very favorite companies which is Mezco Toyz and I know you might recall that I’ve said that a few times already but what can you do. The Press Preview at Mezco Toyz used to take place in advance of the convention at their HQ but they moved and have less space for a whole group of media to be wandering around. Today we met up nice and early at their booth and I took a lot of photos. My favorite stuff from Mezco is the “Living Dead Dolls” and the “One:12 Collective” lines so let’s check them out.
