Before this most recent ToyMan show, it was advertised there would be some new vendors and vendors who were newer to the show. I met some folks who I hadn't seen before (and bought some new cool goodies) so that was indeed true and made for quite a fun time meeting new people and seeing old friends! When I walked into the show I first saw my good buddy Spike of Lost in Space Toys and Collectibles. I also saw the always friendly Tom from Alliance Comics, Toys, & Games. I proceeded further onto the show floor (which was stuffed as always with awesome things to peruse) and saw Vince of VK Toys at his table. He had a bunch of great comics and toys. I met the good folks behind Back in Time Comics & Toys who had a great copy of, "New Avengers," #40, the 2nd printing which features the Skrull Queen Veranke's first appearance (and cover appearance). Give it a look:
Then I went over and chatted with my awesome friend John Chaffee of Bigfoot Comics and Collectibles. I also saw my good chum Tim Metzger selling comics. I made the acquaintance of the owners from Retro Resale and enjoyed looking through all the great comics they had brought to the show. In the upstairs area, I saw the talented Lindsay Hornsby of Mega Giganto--she always has the most fun comics/stickers/pins/so forth! I met author Jacqueline James and checked out her books as well. Back downstairs, I saw Toys of Our Youth and then Konnor Tate and Co. of Tatertot Comics and Collectibles had a table set up and I got a stellar deal on the first appearance of Madame Web and the first appearance of Damian as Batman. Observe:
This ToyMan show was a fantastic way to kick off my favorite month of the year, October. The sheer amount of toys, Funko products, die-cast cars, magazines, comics, and other neat stuff was astounding as it is anytime I come to show! I would undoubtedly recommend coming to the next ToyMan show on November 13th, with all the details available via the show's website digital flyer.
