All right, I have to admit I’m slacking off a bit here. Today’s photo essay is nothing but toys we saw almost two weeks ago at ToyLanta. Next week I hope to bring you some short videos, and tomorrow the plan is to show off the dioramas and custom figures, but today it’s all about the toys.
I’m talking reallly cool toys, like Aaron Luck’s 3-D printed miniature Adventure Team vehicles (seen right) and thousands of other cool action figures, dolls, robots and other cool things.
Face it, this is just pure, dirty, dirty toy porn.
Many of these pics were taken when we snuck in a little early to shoot photos of the dealers setting up, so if some displays seem a little disheveled, it’s because they’re a work in progress. I was still skittish about being in crowded rooms, so once the general public came in, I made myself scarce. Hopefully we’ll be back to normal enough next year for me to feel comfortable in crowds, but we’re not there yet.
I also made the sad discovery that the videos I shot on the final morning of ToyLanta, before we hit the road, did not come out in any usuable form. I will be posting about a couple of the folks I intended to spotlight in those in the coming weeks.
I’ll probably still be posting ToyLanta photos and video through next week, so I hope nobody’s sick of this stuff yet. We’ve been back more than a week, but it takes a long time to decompress from your first extended trip in over two years and we’re still finding our footing. Today is all about the toys, so dig in…
That is our trip to ToyLanta’s dealer’s rooms for today. Play nice and I may revisit this topic again next week, along with any video that I’m able to salvage and some other cool photos from the trip. Tomorrow we’ll look at custom figures and dioramas.
