Welcome back to the presentations from the 2017 American International Toy Fair. I’m continuing on from where I left off with my DC Collectibles visuals. This was a fantastic appointment during our exploration and if you love the great heroes of the DC Comics Multiverse, you are going to be spending some money. Here we go.
I’ll pick up with the remaining images from the “DC Designer Series” of action figures. These are all based on the art of Ant Lucia and his “DC Comics Bombshells” series. Awesome stuff but you can see that for yourself.
As I’ve previously noted, this year’s American International Toy Fair was an awesome adventure and from the look at all of the photos that were snapped, I am going to have posts for a couple of weeks to work into the context of all of our other narratives. With this post I am beginning the visuals from our appointment at the DC Collectibles booth. Let’s go.
I love the DC Collectibles booth because they set it up so nice and neat for an easier visual digestion. I secured photos of each of the groupings and let’s begin with the “Icons” series of collectible action figures.
As we’ve noted a couple of days ago, the PiercingMetal website was once again exploring the American International Toy Fair, or very simply Toy Fair. Now it’s time to begin loading in all of the amazing companies that we stopped by to see and share their offerings. Let’s begin the journey with the folks at Dark Horse who over the years have impressed us time and time again. Here we go.
While I am not the biggest gamer, I have heard about the “Witcher” game and it looks great. These exquisite statues are representative of their license for it. I need to start playing the game and perhaps even becoming a statue collector since I like some of these.
I’ve been attending Toy Fair for a few years now as a member of the press and it’s been great sharing the latest and greatest action figure and science fiction or super-hero related movie properties with you on the website. If you are somehow just joining us as a reader of the posts, you might want to check out some of the historical coverages via THIS LINK. It’s been a blast. Now the other day a notice arrived informing the press about the nominations for the 2017 Toy Of The Year and all the categories that are making it up this year. I cast my vote and what I am here to tell you in this narrative is that you as a consumer can also use your voting power and help select the very best from the companies that have been nominated. How cool is that. Check out the categories and the nominees – The voting link will be in my closing thoughts.
