NY Toy Fair 2017 part 2

Continuing where we left off from NY Toy Fair part 1, even going one day was enough to make you feel like you've seen everything. But there is so much more to Toy Fair that one day is never enough, but for your body it will be. Some booths you need an appointment, others you can just walk right in and just enjoy what's on display. For appointment only booths sometimes you don't get to take photos or videos of anything, just ask questions. Even the walk in booths you have to be wary of what you can or cannot post because that company may have a prototype out but not approval from the Licensor. Even when you are unable to post what's on display it is still amazing what you see there and ask questions before these hit the shelves.

First convention of the year and I am happy to say that it was the NY Toy Fair. Always great to start things off at a more business oriented convention but with the most amazing action figures that I’m sure we all will gladly go broke for. My only downside this year that I was only able to attend 1 day of Toy Fair and that was Saturday. This is one of those conventions that you need to attend as many days as possible, especially if you are doing press. One day just gives you a nice tour through maybe one floor, just because you have to stop and eat and of course because it ends around 6pm. Plus I’ve started to not care about attending cons the first thing in the morning just because I enjoy sleeping much more. Unless there is a panel or signing I really want to attend, I see no reason to lose sleep.

IMG's Worlds of Legends theme park coming soon

Entertainment Earth

As kid growing up summer vacation was the greatest time of the year second to Christmas. No school meant more time to hang out with friends and of course family trips. With places like Six Flags, Disney World, and Universal Studios there was plenty of places to visit which meant a lot of time spent in a car with your family members for hours on end. Each theme park offers a variety of rides and activities for the family in their own unique way; which made it hard at times to choose which theme park you wanted to visit that summer. Then of course you have to take into account the weather, which makes planning out your trip in advance even more difficult.

Review: Batman "ALMOST GOT IM"

As a child of the 90’s one of the best cartoons to watch at the time was Batman: The Animated Series. The writing was geared so all audiences young and old could appreciate it, the animation and art directions was stylized to give that heavy dark atmosphere perfect for the Dark Knight. Even now this series still hold and is one of the best Batman series out there. Why this trip down memory lane you ask? Well it seems the folks at CRYPTOZOIC are tapping into this nostalgia with their new game Batman: ALMOST GOT’ IM.

Review: Bulls&Bears Board Game

At the 2016 NY Toy Fair I had the absolute honor of interviewing the creator of the Bulls & Bears board game. Out of everything that was on this display at Toy Fair, it was this game the really stood out for me. This isn’t another Monopoly game copy; Bulls & Bears is a unique game that teaches you about the economy, investment, and managing your money. It’s a game that once you start things off, you slowly but surely get the hang of it. It especially helps if you or one of your friends is good with numbers; pen and paper are also handy to keep track of investment payouts, etc.

METALLOCUS is a 4 issue miniseries that takes place 100 years from tomorrow. Which is a great way to avoid your series actually reaching the year in question in real life and not have whatever future you depicted not come true; like the Marvel 2099 series or Back to the Future. It’s the age of cybernetics and DNA manipulation in a world that is divided by both concepts. In the Northern Hemisphere cybernetics is all the rage while in the Southern Hemisphere, it has been outlawed, but DNA manipulation is their trademark.

“WHATI.F.” is a one shot story about a being that can only exist if someone believes him to exist. Which is weird when you first hear it at first, because how can someone telling the story exist and not exist at the same time? This isn’t a supernatural ghost story; it’s a story of friendship, sorrow, and acceptance. This is a story that we can all relate at some point in our lives. A story of having someone in your life who makes you feel that it’s okay to be yourself and yet without that person in your life the world becomes a very lonely place.

Our story takes place in a quaint suburban neighborhood with our storyteller, Boy, preparing to say his good-byes. The entire story is basically his goodbye letter to the most important person in his life. It’s a very intimate look at the happiness and the sadness this character has been through. For a one shot it feels like you are getting more than you could hope for. We don’t know where Boy came from or how he came to exist in the first place, but we do know he has been trying to get people to notice him. He's been floating high in the rafters of clubs, above the crowds of people but no one seems to notice this elf like creature floating above them. That is until one special person decided to go up the rafters and say hi. Penelope Xylophone was her name and while it’s a very interesting last name, it’s one that she can’t seem to spell. And while Boy may be able to float in the sky, meeting someone who can’t spell their own last name amazed him!

“It’s a better name than Boy. We’ll have to fix that.”Penelope Xylophone

As time passed their friendship grew in ways Boy never could imagine. And in the greatest act of friendship Penelope finally gave Boy a name; Jackson Leviathan. It was the greatest gift he had ever received from anyone in his life. As life with Penelope went on, her life went on. She eventually got married and even had a kid. While Penelope still made Jackson exist, it was to the dismay of her husband. It is at this point in the story where Jackson felt his time was up and it was time to move on. At least until she needed him again. 

This was an incredible visual interpretation of a goodbye letter. From start to finish it was a incredibly gripping tale. It definitely hit the right points to get you invested in the characters; while wasn't too much information given, there was still enough to keep your attention. While it was a moment in time with memories spread throughout, the storytelling was just compelling.It does make you wish there was more story just to see how things go or just to see Jackson Leviathan's origin. Since Penelope has been the only one to make him exist, it makes one wonder if her child could do the same and what kind of days they would have together. 

The art style was very fitting and well done. It set the tone of the story perfectly. Almost rough pencils during the present day showing the sadness that Jackson Leviathan felt; clean pencils during the happy memories. It's a completely black & white comic with varying shades of gray; no color whatsoever. Which makes it work best since this is a sad good-bye letter. The cover art is really conveys the peacefulness of the story, just a lone figure walking off into the sunset with gorgeous colors.  

If you are a fan of short stories or are looking for something new and interesting, this one issue is worth picking up and adding to your collection.
