Toy Fair 2013 [CLOSED]

Hey all,

I'm at the Toy Fair. Got the rare blue Chop Chop and a small poster. I'm going to give the Chop Chop to my friend's son. I got into an argument last week with her, so hopefully this will help. At first the lady told me they didn't have the Chop Chop, but she later explained they weren't announcing that they were giving it away and she told me to hide it in my bag. Not sure why, but anyway I have one. The poster is of Swap Force and it's pretty cool. They also have statues of the three Swap Force characters. I took pictures of them and Roller Brawl / Countdown. I'll try to upload pictures later.

My signature is like this because no matter what I put in it apparently it always violates website policy. Hopefully this is ok............................

So... they explained that they weren't announcing it yet, asked you to keep it secret, was kind enough to give you one anyway and you went and posted about it on an internet message board? smilie

No no, they said they were keeping it quiet about giving the figure away, and they gave it out to everybody that asked. They just didn't want the people there to get worked up about it I guess.

There isn't a stage, it's just an open floor conference with booths and showrooms. I believe that the public isn't allowed in and you have to have some sort of business affiliation or website/press credentials.

one would assume they would be posting some sort of new information from the toy fair though? i see information from other booths popping up on the net, is there just nothing new from skylanders there?

Nothing new from Skylanders. The rep told me that the new Portal works on the old games, so I guess that's new information? Nothing huge though.

My next door neighbor is at Toy Fair right now (manufacturers rep). I am going to text him right now to tell him to stop by the Activision booth and ask about the blue chop chop..... and be persistent. I hope he gets one.

I'm afraid you'd be out of luck regardless of what his friend does. Depending on what they do with these sorts of promos, they're probably limiting them 1 per person without being able to purchase (or otherwise obtain) a second.

Nice that you got to go. My Dad almost got to go:

Quote: henryszuch

My Dad is going to toy fair. I had no idea. We live in CT and he ends up doing work things there a lot (he is an advertiser). I had no idea until I brought up the skylanders monoply and told him that it was found there. He said he was going. I asked him to go to the skylander booth but before I could go into details, he said something. He wasn't going to the actual toy fair. He was going to meet with a company that is associted with it. He wasn't going to the actual toyfair but a meeting for one of his clients, and apperatly there are meetings that are part of the toyfair. He wasn't going to the booths. . I was so close.



Edit: He said he will try and see if he can get in. Cross your fingers. If I get a toy fair variant (it will be my first rare variant) I will die!

OK, I can finally see some texture and detail on Wash Buckler. Seems my fears of him being too smooth were simply a result of not having good enough photos. I'm actually starting to get a little excited. (now they just need to fix those other 3 SWAPpers, which are a mess right now - no wonder they aren't pushing them yet)

Thanks for the kind words. It's my first DSLR camera, and I only had a week to figure it out before NYTF.

*Facepalm* That texture isn't on the figure, it's on one of those big statues that are used for display. The figure is exactly the same as the one we have seen...

Don't try so hard to be rude, especially when your going to get things wrong.

There certainly is texture on the wash buckler figure.

yes, I saw the texture on the big figure, so took a closer look at the actual figure and was finally able to make out some texture of Buckler's tentacles which is somethig I have been hoping for.

mm you make a good point, i didnt see that myself, but there is a scaley*ish* texture to the top side of the tentacles smilie looks promising, also shows that hes more of a final figure while the other ones (like stink bomb) is more of a working prototype
