Toy-Ventures Issue 8 Sneak Peek

Toy-Ventures Issue 8 Sneak Peek

Hello All,

I’m happy to share a sneak preview of Toy-Ventures magazine issue 8. Due in October, this issue will showcase the new direction for the magazine but will also retain the flavour you’ve come to expect from TV.

Toy-Ventures Issue 8 will contain the most vintage toy articles we’ve ever attempted, covering genres from the 1960s to the 1980s, like Military toys, Monsters, unproduced prototypes, Anime, Science Fiction, Knock-Offs, and Halloween costumes.

Our Mego Planet of the Apes coverage continues, as does Steve Stovall’s (3DSuperJoes) incredibly well-researched look at Hasbro’s Super Joe. Also returning to issue 8 is toy historian Tony Roberts (Analog Toys) with another fantastic look behind the curtain at the creation of a legendary Palitoy collectible.

New voices to Toy-Ventures this month include Heath Smith, Raymond Castile, Chance Priest, Dave Keymount and George Spigot, sharing their vast knowledge on unique subjects that I can’t wait to reveal.

As for the pre-order/subscriber prize for this issue, Chris Franklin has cooked up something magical and insane.
