Once again, another freaking post from me looking ahead at what is coming and why you should care. This time I’m looking to the fall. You know–that time of the year for the start of school, football, the World Series, Halloween, the presidential election, Thanksgiving (Morten’s Aften), and Christmas. All great pop culture events to get excited about.
I’ll tell you what I think fwoosher’s should be looking forward to this fall.
3. ThreeA Toys. That’s right–ThreeA is topping my list. They’ve been teasing us loyal followers with pics of Action Portable Adventure Kartel Figures Tommy and Shadow. This summer they even went so far as to offer a Tracky JC in a surprise and impossible-to-buy (Indy and CB will suffer) drop. We know that Fighting JC is rumored for an upcoming drop, and we can only hope for more Zombs!
4. The Hobbit. Oh hell yes. Just… yes. From the movie, to action figures, to LEGO sets, this fall will be dominated by another edition of Peter Jackson’s epic storytelling in a new adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth adventures.
5. Mattel. You know, I’ve personally lost track of what is coming from them this year. I have my DC Universe Club Infinite Earths subscription and I just get whatever comes to me. But no matter what is coming or what’s for sale, we can guarantee that there will be plenty of internet drama to keep discussions going.
As always, I love the fall! There is much to look forward to: gatherings, food, holiday spirit, and toys. Lots and lots of toys.
