New York Toy Fair 2015
We are getting in reports on New York Toy Fair from various internet sources plus we have a reporter at the show. (No not me, I had planned to attend but the weather stopped me from going). One of the items our reporter saw was a pirate ship from Blue Box with new pirates. The photo above is of one of the Blue Box pirates and part of the ship. We will be posting and will have pictures of some of these new items later today.
Expeditionary Force update
A collector over on the French site contacted Expeditionary Force to ask when would the Thracian figures would be out and got this response
“The next range to be release is 60mm WW2 German, American and Free French (American-supplied battalions but with Kepi or Adrienne helmets).”
The big surprise is that EF is also doing WWII French. This will not be hard as all they have to do is make separate heads with either the kepi or Adrienne helmet. It will be interesting to see the response to the French figures.
