Winter Fever Toy Show

So today I attended the Winter Fever Toy Show in New Jersey. I was really looking forward to this as I have been itching to attend a show since the last one I went to way back in early October. I was even more excited given the fact that it was a Toy Show! 

I saw some recognizable people, some from Hollywood Heroes and others from AMC's Comic Book Men. I didn't buy a whole lot but really enjoyed looking at all the awesome vintage toys each vendor had.
Old Board Games and carded vintage Star Wars figures
Old school cars and trucks
I had fun digging through loads of stashes just like this one!
There was loads of vintage Star Wars goodies.
Great assortment in this case!
I liked scoping these random displays with all kinds of stuff.
Lego of course! The top section were all super cool customs! Check out Cheetara in the upper front row!
This guy had an awesome selection of carded vintage Star Wars.
Another shelf chock full or random goodness.
Some old school Megos.
This guy some really cool stuff including a Mego Batmobile mint in box, that I really wanted but ultimately passed on due to the price tag =(
A cool assortment of monster items.
There were tons of vendors at this show. I'll definitely be going back.
Lol, a Pee Wee's playset! I'm not ashamed to admit I loved this show as a kid. "If you hear the secret word, scream real loud!"

Phew, that was quite a bit of picture taking! Now onto my haul. I have recently made it my goal to streamline my collection. I resisted the temptation to buy all the stuff that I thought was cool just because it was cool and nostalgic (like vintage TMNT, Masters of the Universe, Thundercats and more!). I focused on buying items that fit into the collections I am currently working on.
Legos of course. Most of these are from series 2 which was a few series back. These guys go for a good few bucks on ebay and I snagged all of these for a pretty sweet deal.

I'm currently working on a loose set of vintage Star Wars, and I snagged these guys on the cheap! Ghost of Anikin, 1977 Obi Wan, 1977 Tusken Raider, and 1977 R2-D2. All original and complete!

So that does it for my recap of the Winter Fever Toy Show. It was well worth the 6 bucks for admission. I had a great time with my buddy looking back on some truly awesome toys. Now I'm off to my in-laws for some home made beef stew. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday!


  1. More like a great way to spend a Sunday! Nice vintage finds, they all look in good nick.

    1. I don't know what was better, the toys or the stew!

  2. I was there as well. It was a decent show. I kind of wish I bought a little more, but I felt like I had spent enough money so I stopped.
