Maisto Hits Broadway – The 2008 New York Licensing Show

maisto attended the 2008 licensing show last week held in the javitz center. here’s a question for you – ever been in ny during the summertime? here is another – ever been in ny during the summertime during record high temperatures? last one – ever been in ny during the summertime during record high temperatures attending a trade show in a convention center where the a/c is not functioning up to snuff?

ok – now that that is out of my system, and my fluids have been replenished, here are some photos of the show-floor

actually, the show is kind of cool (if you skip the first paragraph of this post), with the entertainment companies doing it up big time in order to entice the press and folks like us into thinking they own the rights to the next blockbuster. that’s what they want us to think, who knows? is this monster mutt the next big thing?

we know t-f is pretty damn big – hell hasbro doesn’t even call itself a toy company – they are an “entertainment company”…

batman is always a fave at this show, especially when he is made out of lego…

i am pretty sure my kid would have been (more) upset with me (than usual) if i had not captured this awesome display – with sbsp on the massive monitor…

another hasbro property – this time from the upcoming g.i. joe movie…

and last but not least – ecto-1 from ghostbusters

that’s it from ny – i need an ice tea!
