How cool would it be to meet some of the people behind the Metal Earth models? I’d love to do it. Unfortunately, I don’t live anywhere near New York. But if you do, and you happen to be going to the New York Comic Con… then you should drop by and visit with them! They might even have some of the new Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker models (on Friday, at the earliest). And if you were ever wanting to get your hands on a MEGA Artoo model, a little birdie has told me that there is a remote chance that you might want to find a way to get there and see them.
The photos above are from previous events (including the New York Toy Fair), and the photo at the top of this article even features the founder and creator of Fascinations, Inc (the company that brings us Metal Earth models). So that gives you an idea of what you might find there, but it will be a different setup, and probably a different set of people. You can find them at booth 1879, just behind/beside booth 1744, on Show Floor Level 3 of the Javits Convention Center (I wonder if they will have a few copies of the model of the building they are in for sale while they are there!). If you use the directory, they’ll be listed as Fascinations, Inc, not Metal Earth. Here’s a digital version of the map identifying where they will be at:
If you do manage to drop by and visit with them, tell them that CodeWookiee sent you. It’s not going to get you anything, I just want you to say hi for me!
