Breaking: Toy Fair Dallas and Toy Fair New York 2021 Are Postponed

the toy association logo

The Statement:
While the trajectory of this October’s Toy Fair Dallas has long been known to our exhibitors and the buying community given ongoing pandemic developments in Texas, the postponement of that show to 2021 now meets the news that The Toy Association has elected to also postpone Toy Fair New York 2021.

Due to the current state of the pandemic and restrictive guidelines in place both in Texas and in states where our guests originate, our partners at the Dallas Market Center (DMC), site of the annual Toy Fair Dallas, have told us that they are unable to meet the unique needs of our fall marketplace, with its preview showrooms and crowds moving from floor to floor. The Association remains committed to the next Toy Fair Dallas show at the DMC in October of 2021.

PiercingMetal’s Heading To Toy Fair 2020

Good morning my dedicated readers, I am here nice and early to announce that for the next four days, the PiercingMetal Media Command HQ will be a mobile unit and exploring the always amazing Toy Fair which will be taking place at the Javits Center from Saturday to Tuesday.

This years event will mark PiercingMetal’s 10th annual visit to the trade show as a part of the press and comes in advance of our own 15th anniversary so I feel there is much cause for celebration. I’ve scheduled quite a few appointments and am looking forward to seeing what the folks at Mezco Toyz, Super7, DC Direct, Diamond Select, McFarlane Toys, NECA and Funko have in store for us. You’re going to want to tune into our Official Facebook, Instagram YouTube and Twitter to see all of the awesome as fast as we do.

As usual with this annual alert, the means to comment on the post has been turned “off” and instead we encourage you to leave your topical notions on the individual posts when they go live. They’ll be going online as soon as we can attend to them. Let us play……

Exploring Toy Fair 2019: LEGO (Part 2)

Welcome back my friends, I am here once more with the continuing exploration of the 2019 Toy Fair. This chapter is the second from the LEGO Press Preview and I’ve already pointed out that this is slightly different from the other appointments I make during the show. As before I will mostly let the images do the talking since there is no way that this readership are going to draw a blank when they see these characters. Let’s go.

Exploring Toy Fair 2019: LEGO (Part 1)

Continuing along with the exploration of the 2019 Toy Fair, I’m sharing the sights and scenes that were observed during the LEGO Press Preview. This event is a little different from the conventional appointments and takes place at the Javits BEFORE the show floor opens. That makes it my very first mission of the massive event and you even get a sweet special badge to wear.

This would be my second year being invited into this preview so after I got a little coffee into the system (since this began at 7AM), I was ready to share a bunch of images with you. I won’t be talking all that much since these licenses pretty much speak for themselves and they had so many of them. Let’s begin.

Exploring Toy Fair 2019: Bandai

Continuing along with the exploration of the 2019 Toy Fair, I am now giving you the inside peak of the Bandai booth. In the past, we’ve never actually done into the booth of the company and instead shared the visuals about their products from the windows around their pavilion. It worked to an extent but now we are heading inside to see what is coming down the pike from them. I was pretty excited about a number of the items since the mighty Godzilla was among them and would be the first stop on my visit to their booth.

Among the figures presented were a number of 8″ or so sized figures which I can easily see myself purchasing a complete set of. They only had Godzilla, King Ghidorah and King Ceasar for display but aren’t they cool.
