The End of Toys R Us

Today the sun finally sets on Toys R Us stores across the United States, as they close their doors for the final time.

It’s sad to say a final goodbye to the store that was such a huge influence in the lives of so many children who grew up to be collectors like us. Then you also realize that the next generations will not have that feeling of pure joy as they won’t be walking into a Toys R Us store in their lives.

Share with us your thoughts and feelings, both in the comments, and in our forum here

Larry Hama Action Figure Update

Fresh Monkey Fiction have sent out a new update regarding the Larry Hama Action Figure on Kickstarter.

From the update:

Hey Everyone!

We did a few minor touch ups to the Larry Hama paint master and had him displayed at Joe Con last weekend along with our Eagle Force Returns figures. Thanks to Justin Bell at GeneralsJoes for the images.

He’ll come back to us, then it’s off to the factory so they can work on the paint sample.

As always we’ll keep you updated as we move forward.

Thanks again everyone!

Bill
