(November 20, 2013)

(July 18, 2013)

(June 14, 2013)
I’ll be honest with you. When I was kid I did not have a ton of Legos. I received a large box of Legos from a friend of my Dad’s which were his own son’s. I loved them.

This week at the International Toy Fair in New York City the new Star Wars Toys arrived. It wasn’t the full onslaught of products we here at Mania are used to seeing. In fact, it may have been the smallest amount of toys this Toy Maniac has seen in years

Toy Maniac: GI Joe Retaliation Blues by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Toy Maniac
(June 01, 2012)

(May 25, 2012)
The San Diego Comic Con is only 47 days away. If you haven’t booked your hotel yet you had better get on it. If you didn’t buy tickets yet, well you’re not going. No Comic Con for you, sorry. However you aren’t completely shut out of all the Nerdva
