Once again I say “WELCOME GEEKS” and I say this with a smile and not an insult because I am one of you. As you know, I am finishing up the coverage of the 2017 NY Comic Con and we are on Day Four’s second installment. There isn’t much else I can add to that so let’s just make sure that you have seen the posts that came before (and if you didn’t please click on THIS LINK to open everything related to this event on a new page). I’m going to start off this chapter with a visual of the James Gunn Pop figure. I am a very casual collector of these and generally buy only the musician ones that I love (despite missing out on the KISS ones believe it or not). Apparently this was an exclusive to the convention figure and was going for a pretty penny almost immediately. Kudos to anyone who had gotten one and then turned a nice profit.

Welcome back my friends to the Convention Coverage that doesn’t end. Well, at least it seems to be the case because there are just so many photos to share with you all that I like to be as thorough as possible. If you’ve been following this series of posts then you already know what we are up to but those who we’ve only met during the convention and are joining us for the first time you have arrived at the expansive in-depth visual coverage of the 2016 NY Comic Con. I’ve finished with the first two days of the events and we are now up to “Day Three” with this first chapter. Newbies are encouraged to click on THIS LINK first since it will bring you a rundown of all the chapters that have been posted before this one. There is no rush in catching up at all. Here we go with our first “50” images and this incredible Moon Knight cosplay.

Hello there readers and welcome to another post from my comprehensive exploration of the 2016 American International Toy Fair. I think this narrative marks my 8th or 9th post about the massive event at Javits Center but with so much to explore and share I have to do this properly. I’m up to the Funko stuff which I love to death. Let’s get started.
The Funko pavilion is always a massive space at Toy Fair and such a space needs a guardian. I can think of no one better than this larger than life Hulkbuster Armor Iron Man. There is also a giant Batman but we’ve presented him here on the site a number of times already and now its someone else’s turn.
I’m not going to speak much during this post as much as I will chime in as the various lines come past us. Most readers know the characters being shown so I don’t need to repeat. These smaller figurines are known as “Dorbz” and they are adorable. Oh I see the play on words now. Clever.

It’s time to get Kawai as Funko presents Babymetal as a part of their “Pop! Rocks” collection. Check out the official statement from the company and a photo of the soon to be released figures.
Pop! Rocks now includes pop metal from Japan! The incredibly popular Babymetal trio – comprised of Su-metal, Yuimetal, and Moametal – mixes elements of heavy metal with pop sensibilities! Don’t be fooled by their sweet appearance!
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I love, love, love the Funko Pop figures and am still kicking myself for missing all of the KISS ones that came out a couple of years ago. I didn’t realize that they were limited runs but now that I know I am definitely grabbing myself a set of these Babymetal ones and I don’t care what you think about this group because I really get a kick out of it. Now let’s just add about how awesome these Funko Pop! figures are as well, because they just are. I know so many people who are buying these and I see a ton of them at Toy Fair when I go exploring that convention. These editions are def worth adding to your collection and even more so if you are rallying behind Babymetal and the Fox God. What do you think of these? Will you buy them? I wonder if they will make some for Ghost. That would be insane. Before we go please check out some additional product photos of these three awesome Pop! Rocks creations.

Welcome back my dear readers and toy minded collectors, I am once again back on your monitor presenting the findings from the 2014 Toy Fair and with this fourth chapter will be continuing along in the wonderful NECA booth with a few more visuals of their awesome “Pacific Rim” action figures. Take a look. With much of this being straightforward I will not be chiming in all that much. Enjoy.
