We’re cooking with gas now with the SDCC only two short days away and no, I am still NOT going to be in attendance.

Items like this awesome news about a lifesize Iron Man from “Avengers: Endgame”. Check it out.

Exploring The Toy Insider’s “Holiday Of Play” 2018

For the last couple of years I’ve been announcing that I had attended the “Holiday Of Play” which is the fine folks over at The Toy Insider’s annual holiday event. It’s smaller in scale than their also annual “Sweet Suite” but its at this event where they outline the absolute winners in their eyes in terms of the holiday gift guides. Generally, I end up covering the event over on “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” website since a lot of the stuff is for a younger audience and while I do feature a lot of “Toys & Collectibles” in our category for such things, the cutesy or cuddly dolls and accessories are better suited over there. This year it’s a little different based on The Toy Insider launching “The Pop Insider” which was discussed HERE. This website and occasional magazine will focus on many of the same things I write about so the items that fall into the regular space I keep will be shared in this post. It will be fun, I promise. Let’s go.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Isn’t this awesome? Holy mackerel what an imposing statue and one that I wish I was going to be able to see in person. Most of you already know we are not doing SDCC so if you get to this take some photos and load to Instagram. I’ll close up now by saying to check out some of the LEGO builder playsets that focused on the recent film which hits home video in the coming weeks. Some cool links are below for you to peruse. Until we meet again. Oh and before I go please enjoy the video clip that shows this great statue being built.
