Exploring The Toy Insider’s “Holiday Of Play” 2018

For the last couple of years I’ve been announcing that I had attended the “Holiday Of Play” which is the fine folks over at The Toy Insider’s annual holiday event. It’s smaller in scale than their also annual “Sweet Suite” but its at this event where they outline the absolute winners in their eyes in terms of the holiday gift guides. Generally, I end up covering the event over on “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” website since a lot of the stuff is for a younger audience and while I do feature a lot of “Toys & Collectibles” in our category for such things, the cutesy or cuddly dolls and accessories are better suited over there. This year it’s a little different based on The Toy Insider launching “The Pop Insider” which was discussed HERE. This website and occasional magazine will focus on many of the same things I write about so the items that fall into the regular space I keep will be shared in this post. It will be fun, I promise. Let’s go.

The folks at LEGO only brought a small selection of the picks for us to peruse and you can see Hogwart’s, some Star Wars stuff and some other coolness. I love the LEGO brand and am continually amazed by how creative their building sets get each and every year.

These are the Bucky O’Hare action figures from Boss Fight.  I loved them and remember the character that was created by Larry Hama and Michael Golden.

The Pop Insider table had a bunch of recent releases that they were doing a big giveaway with.  I hoped to win but alas did not.  Most of it would have become gifts but the Infinity Gauntlet was mine.  Oh well.

Will I snap for good or for not so much? Maybe the readers should take a poll LOL. Don’t worry, I would choose the right side for sure.
