We’re finishing off our Winter Wonder Fest 2013 coverage with my favorite part of the show. Sure it’s great seeing what new toys to expect from the big companies, but I really enjoy discovering what the incredibly talented individual artists have been working on.
While we were gawking at all the news from Toy Fair, Japan was in the midst of hosting Winter Wonder Festival. Luckily for us at IAT, Robert Baldwin braved the cold temperatures and large crowds to bring us the latest news from our favorite Japanese companies
As you can guess by the content here at IAT, I’m a little more keyed in on the Mattel reveals than other companies. While Digital River spoiled most of Mattel’s Toy Fair news (though I’ve heard some say it was done purposefully), the panel still proved important for the info
While convention season is pretty much over stateside, Japan had a big one up its sleeve with Tamashii Nations 2012! Bandai of Japan has been garnering a large portion of my collecting interest over the last couple years, and the 2013 reveals make it blatantly apparent
Another convention has come & gone and that means it’s time for a little Armchair Coverage here at IAT! I was away this weekend, but I came home & dived in to the news, taking some notes along the way. Some lines had big news while others seemingly forgot
Today’s our last day of WonderFest coverage. The big companies are out of the way, and now the spot light is on all the talented individuals who create their own amazing toys, garage kits, figure add-ons, and accessories. You’ll find a bit of everything in these last galleries.
It’s Day Two of our 2012 Summer Wonder Fest coverage! Today we’ll be featuring images from companies like Kotobukiya, Alter, Griffon, Medicos, and more! And perhaps even more exciting is that Robert has some answers to reader suggested questions posted on the forum!
As we were enjoying the afterglow/aftermath of SDCC 2012 a couple weeks ago, another important toy event was taking place half way around the world. Our man in Japan, Robert Baldwin, was there gathering the latest news, pictures, and even a few rumors from WonderFest!
The final part of our Armchair Coverage is always the most work: updating checklists! There are still some tweaks and touch-ups to do here and there, but each of the main checklists are updated with the latest info from San Diego Comic-Con. Here’s the skinny on what’s changed and what’s needed.
Today, Noisy and I are going to take a closer look at some of our favorite non-Mattel lines featured at San Diego Comic-Con. I’ve got some quick write-ups on Transformers, Star Wars, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, while Noisy will explore the Marvel Universe and Marvel Legends offerings!
We’re trying something a little different for SDCC Armchair Coverage this year! Instead of a single article, we’ve created an entire forum! Vault and I will be updating the forum with links all weekend, but we need your help! If you see something we missed, post it and let us know!
Tamashii Features is Bandai’s own personal toy show, showcasing the new projects and properties that they will be releasing in the following year. Our man in Japan, Robert Baldwin, took some time to check out all that Bandai had to offer. All I can say is
