September News

Labor day has come and gone, we would like to thank everyone that visited the store this past weekend. Between the store and the mail order a normally  slow weekend turned out to be quite busy. The summer is winding down but the good news is the Chicago Toy Soldier show is just around the corner. This is the biggest toy soldier show in the world, for one week I will be living, breathing and playing with toy soldiers! The summer ending also means the NFL Season has begun and for soccer fans the English Premier League is under way.

     Our next road trip will be the National Capital Show Sept. 13th. Then We will be taking off for the “Windy City” on Sept. 23rd. This month brings us some great releases from King and Country as well as some new sets from Toy Soldiers of San Diego. We also have heard rumors of a new Vietnam playset as well as some new WWII Pacific sets form Austin Miniatures. In the store we just picked up a nice pile of Dwarven Forge Master Maze set along with a pile of Reaper, Foundry and other wargame figures & accessories. Also included was some handmade terrain, die cast 1//100 scale aircraft and more.
     Some of this will be on sale in the shop, added to our website or listed on ebay. Email with any questions. We also picked up the 21st Century Collection and we are in the process of sorting it out. I should have some listed on our site later today under 21st Century Toys.
