We’re a little behind on our Requests for this third round and we’ve had a few requests where none of the IAT staffwriters were proficient on the subject matter. Today’s request, Dark Tower, is one of those requests. So, we turned to reader Dayraven for the in’s and out’s .
No, I’m not dead. Moving on… I’ve been thinking about toy prices lately. Price is something important to all of us, but it’s not something we all agree on. I’ve been looking over some of the IAT crew’s recent purchases in regards to this season’s newest movie toys and wondering why they spend
I get tired of picking on Mattel so much. There are a lot of toy companies out there, and I’m sure they are doing a lot of things wrong. But, I don’t hear about the mistakes they are making every week. Their spokesperson doesn’t personally post on a message board designed by
I’m a little ashamed to be mentioning this so late. I’m generally fairly observant, so when I miss something obvious, it annoys me. Luckily, no one here at IAT noticed it right away either. What I’m talking about is the Toy Fair coverage of the Mattel booth. Specifically, the Trigon C&C. Anyone else

“So here’s a question for all my readers. Why can’t some fans accept new ideas and concepts in their favorite properties? I’ve been noticing this more and more lately in a few different industries, but the last couple days, it’s the MOTU community that has drawn my ire. Among many a MOTU fan,
“Why are Moss Man’s ears fuzzy,” was the cry of many a teary-eyed MOTU Fan on the .Org and at the Facebook page last week. Me? I don’t really care either way. I know how the industry works in regards to prototypes and my subscription was submitted months ago. Some version of Moss
Waiting, waiting, waiting is all I seem to be doing lately. I ordered a case of DCUC11 from Matty on December 23rd. I realized when I ordered them that it was too close to Christmas to expect them anytime soon. To Matty’s credit, they had them ready for shipment rather quickly, but UPS
Originally, my plan had been to take off until next week, but I’ve been drawn back early by the news from Mattel yesterday. For those who are unaware, many collectors have been having problems with their Goddess figures. I have. In fact, all the ones that came to IAT last week were
