Come prepared to interact with us and ask questions as we discuss the ever widening world of toys and collectables. We will start with some quick hitters like: Is there a difference between toys and collectables? What is it about them that keeps us coming back time and time again? Do you open them? Do you keep them packaged? Or, both? We will have an update concerning gender in toys quickly covering short packing, assortments, case numbers and peg warmers. In addition to looking at how exclusives impact this subject. We will then focus on audience interaction and requests to delve into the large murky pool that is the world of knock off's, fakes and reproductions. This being a varied and multilayered issue, we will start by breaking this large carbonite block into manageable chunks using Vintage Star Wars and other toy lines as a case study guide for this subject. We will start to close things out by pointing to what is currently on our hot/hit list and what we think may not only be cool but also be a good investment. Then we wrap things up by offering up some more tips and tricks to aid you in your collecting pursuits. And, last but not least, we will also mix in a few surprises along the way.
