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.
