Open Your Toys Cast - Episode 090: Toy Fair 2014!…

What’s up? It has been a long time, this time for real, for really reals. It’s been over 7 months. I know, it’s crazy. Baby McFavorite is now officially Toddler McFavorite. My collecting has been going strong. I’ve been lurking on boards and still listening to casts. Much to Mrs. McFavorite’s chagrin, I still haven’t done much selling, but that’s changing. I know, I sound like a broken record, but it’s true. I’ve sold almost 500 bucks worth of toys in last few days and mad more to come.

Enough of the old news, it’s time for the new news. That news is Toy Fair. Mrs. McFavorite wanted to bring the cast back and I thought there would be no better time than one of the two largest yearly milestones for news in our community. That’s right, they’re doing that again. While this year was a little lackluster, there were still some amazing reveals across the board. First Matty revealed Rio Blast. Being from New Mexico, cowboy themed toys always have held a special place for me, especially ones armed to the teeth. Something a lot of people had doubts about was Joe, but as promised at SDCC, Hasbro came with the goods for the 50th Anniversary. Especially this little snow-themed two-pack with two of my favorite vehicles and modern take on one of my favorite drivers of all time. Transformers brought the heat as usual, this time figuratively in the form of a Generations Leader Jetfire. Lastly, while seeing this made me this most happy, a certain gangster slug was the big reveal for Star Wars. Unfortunately with the rumor a version with dais and Salacious Crumb is planned for SDCC it looks like we might be headed for another Carbonitegate.

Please forgive us as we’re definitely a little rusty. I mixed up a few facts and missed at least one big reveal, but what can you expect with almost an 8 month hiatus. Hopefully this will mark a return to a bi-weekly show filled with toy goodness. We really missed everyone and we can’t wait to hear from you guys.

    OMG! You guys are back! Misses you guys so much! Totally misses Mrs. McFav’s trucker mouth haha Just kidding~

    Welcome back Mr. Slick McFav & Mrs. McFav! Woohoo, let’s celebrate! LoL
    Ten more episodes you will reach the big One Hundred!

    Hey Slick, I have to say it is addictive to sell toys at least for me. I dug out some of my old figures and profit greatly. I don’t think I can ever stop selling now that I had started… AND I don’t think I can ever stop buying either haha

    Mrs. McFav, good luck in passing series seven exam.

    From 2014 Toy Fair, I’m super excited about JetFire, Black Series 6″ Darth Vader and Luke.

    Keep up the good work guys :D
    Looking forward to the next.
    Please never leave us again!

    Cheers,

    Welcome back!! It’s so good to hear your voices and talking toys again. Im really glad all is well with the family. I have been back in the swing of things myself getting caught up on all the motuc figures I missed while I was out of work and picking up a sub this year for the first time to avoid the monthly disappointment it seemed like I was being delt. I also picked up the club Etheria sub so I’m ready to go. I gave up on the 3 3/4 Star Wars and am collecting only the 6 inch black series now. I really love them and being space is always an issue I had to give somewhere. Last and not least I’m about 9 figures away from completing the vintage motu line, it’s been super fun getting the figures I never had growing up and holding them in my hands for the first time. I can’t wait till the next episode,keep up the good work and thank you guys for all you do for the toy community.

    @AAA We will make it to 100 even if I kill Mrs. McFavorite, uh, I mean if it kills us. I am loving selling toys, just not all the dumb questions. That Black series Vader and Luke is gorgeous. ROTJ is really my “Star Wars”.

    @Vern I’ve see you crushing the MOTU(C) stuff on the book. It is always nice to write off a line, but I’m sure you’ll be back. Glad to see you collecting again. How are the girls?

    Thanks guys for the support…Slick
