Hey friends, so I am here once more with another redirect over to “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” website because the fine folks over at the Toy Insider recently held their annual “Holiday Of Play” event. I used to feature that event coverage here on PiercingMetal but with so much of the products being for a younger set, I’ve moved it onto “The Chronicles” which you can peruse in full by clicking HERE.

LEGO Reveals: Star Wars “AT-ST” Raider from “The Mandalorian”

Just a few short days ago, the Disney+ Streaming Service launched and delivered the first episode of the highly anticipated series “The Mandalorian”. With such a series launch its logical to expert a wide array of toys and collectibles to speak of and while we’ve already seen the action figure of the “The Mandalorian” from Hasbro, its time to see what amounts to the first building set from the folks over at LEGO. Let’s take a look.

Hello again my friends and welcome to something awesome. Now, you might recall my mentioning that I’ve been in attendance at the Toy Insider’s events for the last few years and while we ran into them all at the annual Toy Fair, the last media happening was with their 2018 “Holiday Of Play” (documented HERE in case you missed it). Now that the summer was here it was time for their biggest soiree the “Sweet Suite” which was once again being held at Chelsea Piers #60. This marks my fourth straight Sweet Suite event and while the larger group of products I see will be featured on “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken”, all of the Pop Culture geek stuff will be presented here. Let’s take a look shall we. First up were a whole bunch of awesome cosplayers. I believe this crew referred to themselves as “The New York Avengers” and I don’t think that I need to name the heroes and villains represented here.
