Dude...

...snorer is as snorer does. Or something.

Those gold Titanium TIE Fighters are going for $100-150 on the 'bay right now.

where to go

Nice story Josh,

whats your thoughts on toy fairs to come? was it just missing a bit this year or is there a trend you're noticing over the last 4 years? Any other similar exhibitions to look out for in the future that compare or is NYTF the one to check out? have you ever been to japan, china or korea?

Toy Fair

Well, I'll continue to go to toy fair as long as they invite me. I think future toy fairs will be scaled down a bit until the economy gets stronger. I hope there will be more japanese toys there, but Unfortunately I think theres not the mass market for them. There will always be star wars and Power Rangers though!

I'm actually in Tokyo right now, toy shopping and having a blast. Never been to china or korea though...

tokyo

nice one, i just got back from a 3 day visit to tokyo in early feb. i just had to go, was nowhere near my actual destination of canada (visiting friends for xmas) but just threw it into the plans! spent a lot of time in dept stores where the sheer size of the 'cool' toy section was about the size of the whole toys r us store here in west australia! spun me right out but i was there for the markets. heard there were all sorts of used toys for sale market style but couldnt really find what i was after. learnt a lot though - take heaps of US dollars or yen (not all credit cards work!), learn some japanese coz no one speaks english, get good maps and know where you wanna go, dont get lost on subways and get where you wanna get early coz theyre not open 24/7!!

cool place - was raining the whole time i was there tho - but really cool. I will be prepared next time and there will be a next time! Have a great time and keep living the dream while you can!

Thanks for collectionDX! your collection is inspirational to say the least..
