Ever wanted to go to Toy
Fair? Thinking of the glitz and the glamor of as yet unreleased toys? Well, this
week Marjorie and Arnie bring you a special video podcast, reporting on all that
goes on behind the doors at Toy Fair. Walking you through every step of their two
day Toy Fair tour, you will get to see the Toy Fair floor, what's inside the private
Hasbro and Gentle Giant showrooms, and exactly how cool that upcoming Hasbro AT-TE
is in full motion video...

Giant has opened up orders for the exclusive Holographic
Darth Maul Light-Up Mini Bust
. This is NOT a raffle, this is first come first order, opened to Premier Guild
members first, for one week, then to everyone if quantities remain. You must be logged
in to see this available. They only have an allotment of 1000, so don't wait if you
are thinking about this one!
Posted by Chuck | February 27, 2008 at 08:27 AM EDT |
Only a few left! That's right, with these on sale,
where most places are selling them for retail, Yoda
sabers will be gone very
soon! Don't wait and pay more when you can get them
Also, still less than retail is the Luke
ROTJ V.2 LE Lightsaber
. This is the last lightsaber Master
Replicas will do. It is quite fitting though...MR
started with the Luke ROTJ LE and they finished with
the Luke ROTJ V.2 LE. The first Luke is selling for
three times the retail price when they were originally
for sale, and that lightsaber only had 10 seconds of
screen time. This one is on Luke's belt through out
the entire movie, as well on the emperor's chair.
There is no telling how much more than retail this one
will be in just one year, not to mention five years.

out the latest creations from our pals at ACPin
Hoth Display - Due to the great feedback on the first MOC
that I've done for the LEGO store at Bridgewater Mall in New Jersey, I've been asked
to build a new one to replace it. The theme this time is Hoth which many will recognize
as a composite of previous scenes that I've done and this will be on for the next
month or two.
Indiana Jones Tank -
Since it's very unlikely that the tank would be done for the Indiana Jones sets,
I tried to do my version of it based from pics that I found in the book From Star
Wars To Indiana Jones. It's also on display at the LEGO store.
