Toy Show Finds: Seeing Rarities

Yesterday I made the trip up to the Chicago area to attend the Kane County Toy & Doll Show. If you’ve never been to a toy show before, think of it as a Flea Market, but the only items being sold are toys and dolls. The show at the Kane County Fairgrounds happens twice a year, and is one of the larger shows I have ever been to. I hadn’t been able to go to this one in over a year, so I was pretty excited to head up there.

I think one of my favorite things about going to toy shows like this isn’t necessarily what I find to purchase, but more what I get to see. Sometimes these shows offer up an opportunity for you to get a good look at some toys that are considered rare, or are just so expensive you may never have a chance to actually own them. Case in point: one booth had a vintage MOTU Megator.

Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Series 1 12-Pack Figure Review

S.L.U.G. Zombies are a cool new series of mini figures from Jakks Pacific. I first started seeing reports of people finding these at Toys R Us stores, and immediately began the search locally. Unfortunately, my local Toys R Us still hasn’t begun carrying them for some reason.

Luckily Wheelor from the He-Man.org forums was nice enough to pick up this 12-pack so I could check them out! Thanks bud!

So click on through to check out the 12-Pack of the new S.L.U.G. Zombies mini figures!

The Video Game Years: 1977

RetrowareTV.com is the first website that I produced videos for exclusively, as they were huge supporters of my video game-themed action figure series From Pixels to Plastic. I’ve become great friends with the folks over there over the past 4 years, and was thrilled when they asked me to be part of their new project: The Video Game Years.

“The Video Game Years are here! The exclusive RetrowareTV.com show that examines the history, culture, and the oddities of video game history will have you learning, laughing, and scratching your head as we examine all that transpired in our favorite hobby’s past.”
