I had really wanted to attend ToyConNJ this weekened, but car problems prevented me from doing so. So here is this week’s exhibit. We’re more than half way through the Dimensions for Children (DFC) figures now! Next up is Richie’s dog Dollar.
Sorry for the lack of new exhibits, I will be posting one shortly. Before I do, I wanted to post about my attending my local convention, Albany Comic Con! It’s funny, I went all the way to San Juan and came back empty-handed, but today I got two bags full of comic books and a really nice Casper item for the Mercheum! I also made some valuable contacts, got to promote this website, and caught up with an old friend. Overall, a really great day.
We interrupt our DFC figure exhibit posting for an important announcement! The Harvey Mercheum has received its first guest exhibit contribution, and it is a great one! Richie Rich Yahoo Group member Duff generously sent in excellent photos of the Richie Rich Video Set by JA-RU Inc. Of all the rack toys JA-RU made for Harvey, I believe this to be the hardest one to find. WorthPoint shows one sold on eBay in 2011, but that is the only reference to it I can find. I have a very battered screen with one of the two rolls in it, and am posting photos of it as well, making this the most ambitious exhibit to date! I will be posting more JA-RU rack toys in the future.
