2015 marks the fifth straight year that PiercingMetal has been one of the attending media representatives reporting on the wonderful finds at the Toy Fair and sharing it all with our readership. This years event was the 112th and was again being held at the cavernous Javits Center. I would again be joined by my stalwart comrade in arms, Mr. Skeleton Pete (who will have many postings of his own on his site) and as done in some previous reports, I will begin my coverage of this incredible event by presenting the winners of the esteemed TOTY for 2015 (that’s “Toy Of The Year” if you didn’t see the title for some reason). My narrative will be light here so I can let the images do the talking. Enjoy.
As you will notice by many of the winning items below, Lego was the clear victor and had risen above the competition across a number of categories. There are a lot of educational items and things for the little ones which will def appeal to those readers with smaller children coming up first.

Greetings my Metal fiends, I just wanted to take a moment of your time and let you know that I had once again attended the PDN Photoplus Expo that takes place over at the Javits Center every October. Since our full integration of the site into WordPress back in June you’re now able to enjoy our NY Comic Con and Toy Fair coverage right here as opposed to heading to a side blog under the same domain. With the Photoplus adventures, I am going to leave the larger narrative over on my PiercingKen.com site and just send you there from this traffic sign of a post. PiercingKen.com hit its fourth anniversary a half a year ago and I’ve been trying to up its game as a bountiful lifestyle website and bring you all sorts of awesome that falls outside of my Metal scope here. Click the image below to be brought to the PDN Photoplus Expo story.
Please know that I’ve disabled the means to comment on this posting since its only a traffic sign to the other domain. You are more than welcome to leave them on the posts they best apply to on that site. Thanks for listening and now its time to get back to the Metal.

Welcome back my friends and here we go with Part 3 of our Day One coverage of the 2014 NY Comic Con. I’ll skip any dancing around with any pre-thoughts and just get down to business. My last chapter for Day One begins with what I observed at the Bandai pavilion and as you see they were putting the Red Power Ranger to good use while he was here and not out saving the universe. Thanks Red Ranger, I will indeed take a flyer from you. Let’s get to to work.
The Bandai pavilion had you being put to task to try and win some prizes. I didn’t try myself since I had so many other visuals to focus on today. They had lots of action figures around for fans to secure.
Here’s one of the Metal Legions that I see at shows all the time. I was officially spotted at NY Comic Con. Maybe I should bring along some CD’s next time for those who manage to locate me in the myriads of people out there.

Hey gang, welcome back to our explorations into the NY Comic Con for 2014; This is our second chapter from the Day One stuff that I observed and as you might expect I am loving the chance to bring it all to your attention. As mentioned in the previous posting, there are a few more than fifty images this time based on my wanting to keep Day One to three chapters. Continuing along here are the photos that the beautiful Cosplayer Jessica Nigri was selling and signing for her fans.

Hey there my readers, we have arrived at that time of the year again and I am speaking of nothing less than the ever expanding and ever fantastic NY Comic Con. For four days this massive event was going to take over the Jacob Javits Center on the West Side of the Big Apple and this year would expand its reach for what they were calling “The Super Week”. This extended presentation would feature special appearances and events outside the normal confines of time at the four days at the Javits but my heavy duty concert calendar for this week was going to keep me from doing all but one of their broadcast events. I’ll speak about that later. The Official Press badge along with the other passes for the Con are decorated with images from “The Walking Dead” and this has been the case for a couple of years now. Time to work that media magic so here we go.
You might remember that last year was the 75th Anniversary of Superman, and this year we would be doing the same sort of hoopla for the Dark Knight himself, the one and only Batman. One of the side sections of the Javits had a massive bat emblem on its wall that could be seen from far away and in this Hall of Justice (for lack of a better term) were representations of many of the Batman costumes that had been portrayed in film over the years. I made sure to snap a shot of each one of them for your viewing pleasure.
