I was among the legion who did not make the cut to enter the LEGO booth for Toy Fair this year. Last year's media event was awesome. Like 140 people were invited. The LEGO staff were all friendly and engaging. It was a great set-up. I didn't meet a person who wasn't thrilled. This year, from what I heard from the people who attended, it wasn't quite so positive of an experience. Hopefully all this success isn't going to their heads!

So the only photos I can share are from the window on the outside of their walled-off booth. And there wasn't a whole lot there. A few of the larger sets are remakes of previous sets. The mini ships were cool, though.

At a different booth we found a selection of LEGO LED flashlights. They were featured in last year's review as well. There were a few new reveals, including Ackbar and Chewbacca. I still haven't seen the 3PO at retail...

Last year I was super excited about LEGO - probably the best stuff I saw at Toy Fair. This year... not so much. I really wish I could have seen their full Star Wars slate. Perhaps next year... is not affiliated with Lucasfilm Ltd. or any of its licensees... damn them to hell. Can't they see a golden opportunity when they see it? Buy us, you fools! You already own our souls and all our money... buy US!!!
