Posted on 02-19-2014 at 06:24 PM by Tony_Bacala under Toy Fair
Toy-Fair-2014-Transformers-014 Toy Fair 2014 is over, but we still have a little more for ya. At the show we try to get the pics up to you as quick as possible so we can talk about the stuff in real time. That means we don't get to mull through our photos and pick out the best, give them a little extra processing love. So, today we present Toy Fair 2014 Redux - Transformers Edition. Attached to this story you will find some of the best shots we took. There is no rhyme or reason, and this post doesn't fully cover all the important things seen at Toy Fair. Just a selection of good photos based on how the shot came out (for the most part). Read on to check the pics. Enjoy!
