It was my first time attending the New York Toy Fair, otherwise officially known as the American International Toy Fair now in its 111th incarnation this week, and while I'll be parsing out some of my specific experiences at different booths and events as soon as I'm able, I simply couldn't keep the toy goodness to myself and had to share this tantalizing assortment of images.
While the Toy Fair is something of a version of heaven for a collecting-inclined person like myself, it's not without its more purgatorial aspects since you can't directly buy what you're seeing unless you're making orders. But maybe that's wise considering what the alternative would have done to my bank account. Shuffle through these, wade around, and I'll be back soon to give some of my reactions to individual products and companies here on Bleeding Cool.
