    Both Tomarts & Lee's are still being published.
    Infrequently, but i still see them in my comic book store from time to time.
    Check out mag racks at barnes & noble.
    They used to carry them.

    There's this Japanese magazine called Televi Kun (TV Boy), it often includes exclusive toys/figures in the package. The text is in Japanese though, but the pics are pretty good.

    I agree! Toyfare and Wizard both were good reads.

    They were for a long time, until the last few years, then every issue was just a repetitive Top X or Best of List, many of which were poorly done. I still miss the Twisted Toyfare Theater. Funny, but this must be the first series of positive posts I've read about Toyfare in these boards. Most kind of deride them :p
