It has been cold and rainy in Saint Louis for days now. The temperature hovers in the high-30's to low 40's and it rains, rains, and rains some more. Thankfully, today the latest Toyman Show
occurred and it felt like a ray of sunlight on this dreary day. I think other people agreed as well as the show was absolutely packed. One reason it may have been so busy was there was a super-cool guest this time, Mr. Martin Kelbba known for appearing in a wide-range of flicks including the beloved, "Pirates of the Caribbean," movies.
I was able to speak with Mr. Klebba and he was very nice and eager to chat, listening to me ramble on about the first movie I ever saw him in ("Corky Romano,") and my hazy memories of when I would listen to him on the Howard Stern show years ago as a kid (against my parent's wishes who didn't think a young kid should hear the language it contained). I greatly enjoyed talking with Mr. Klebba and would encourage you to check out his Facebook page
, give him a holler on Twitter
, or to check-out a non-profit he is on the board of directors for and which does great work, The Coalition for Dwarf Advocacy
. It was awesome that he was at the Toyman Show and it serves as just another great example of the cool folk attendees can meet.
The latest Toyman show was jam-packed with vendors as always, selling everything from old die-cast cars, to Funko Pops, Lego, action figures, and comic-books. I enjoy showing-off what I acquire at the show in my posts to illustrate the variety of things on sale, but this time I actually only bought one thing, a super-cool, "Moon Knight," comic. I bought less as I am currently trying to make sure I have enough funds to buy presents for folk as the holiday's approach. By the time the next shows occurs December 9th I should have all that sorted and be ready to buy more though. Between continuously having stellar guests, tons of vendors, and being a great cost to attend if you asked me to rate my enjoyment at a Toyman show on a scale of 1-to-10 I would give it an 11!
