I went to our 1st day of ToyCon yesterday to check the highlights and also our set up, I got busy at home contacting the band performers, preparing the guest list, update the site, answer hundreds of inquiries via email and Facebook and many more. The 1st day is a big teaser of all the goodies of ToyCon, I didn’t expected that the Batsuit will be there at the Warner Bros booth, GI JOE Retaliation movie exhibit are a big shrine for joe figures, lots of gaming centers and also big discounts from our merchants. I don’t have money with me yesterday and I spotted some cool toys for my 2 year old son, I was about to grab that Little People figure, but I forgot to go back there after doing a photo coverage.
