It is with cathartic pleasure that I announce that issue 11 of Toy-Ventures is at the press stage, I’m reviewing the first round draft right now.
While it is late, I prefer to think of it as “slow cooked,” and I feel it’s some of the best stuff we’ve ever put out. Tonka’s Steel Monsters is our main feature and that was daunting because I learned as I went. I had no foundation for this guide but I wanted it to be all encompassing.
Fortunately, I have a lot of awesome friends who hooked me up with former designers, shared their collection and their expertise. This truly was a group effort and I was just the foreman, sincerely grateful.
My regular contributors knocked it out of the park with an eclectic mix of stories, art and eye popping stuff. Also, we’ve got a new comer who delivered something absolutely special that I’ll talk about soon.
Anyway, I want to thank everyone for their patience, I hope you enjoy this one, it was daunting but so very fun and rewarding.
Onward and Upward!
