However it may seem to us collectors and web site staff, Toy Fair doesn't exist to excite collectors about toys, it's there for toy manufacturers to hook up with toy distributors to get shelf space for toys each year. But not all manufacturers rely on distributors for sales, such as eFX and Sideshow Collectibles, and in this economy where every dollar counts some companies choose to excite collectors by making announcements during Toy Fair without actually taking the trip to New York. Sideshow Collectibles and Gentle Giant released a lot of information on new products this past week, and Star Wars Action News previews these items for you.
Also this week, we discuss the dearth of Yarnas that seem to be clogging many pegs, none more so than in Times Square in New York. Plus new Toys R Us and Target exclusives are showing up. We run these down.
With a UK Collecting Report, a Vintage Figure review, and your voicemails, it's all this week on Star Wars Action News!
