The other day I picked up a free issue of ToyFare. My local shop had a small collection of them and decided to hand them out. This particular issue was from October 2006. I only picked up one or two issues of Toy Fair years and years ago. I thought it was pretty good and my friends always raved about it. I may have been in a different place in my mind at the time. I was dumb back then.
For those who are not familiar, ToyFare was a monthly magazine brought to you by the same people that brought you Wizard Magazine. ToyFare brought the latest and greatest news in the world of collectibles and/or action figures. It had a good run from the late nineties until it fizzled in 2011. What made ToyFare really special were all the hilarious features that they did. Now, I only took a couple of pages from this issue to show, because I don’t know how much of a grey area I am entering, but the book always had (at least the issues I read) several of these gem in them. Fucking hilarious.
If you ever find some back issues of ToyFare, they are worthy of a pickup – at a reasonable cost of course. You wouldn’t pay more than 50 cents for a National Geographic …… would you??!?
