Used to love that magazine. Twisted Mego Theater was the best.

Re: Toy Fare Magazine

I loved Toy Fare. Was a reader from the start until the internet news outpaced the monthly publication times. Never understood their love of mini mates and space ghost though.

Wonder if there is a correlation between that and Zach Oats(?) working at Toyfare and moving to Diamond Selects.

Maybe! I assume they were getting shut out from the bigs and started working with the smaller collector networks. It just kind of sucked because we never got that stuff in Canada.

I miss that magazine and it's partner magazine: Wizard. I still have a stack of my old toyfairs and wizard magazines. I was actually thinking about how I miss reading them a month back. I'll check the podcast out.

Re: Toy Fare Magazine

Who remembers Lees toy review magazine? I bought those on a regular basis. It’s hard to believe there was a time before the internet existed
