* * * TOP COLLECTIBLE TOY COMPANIES ANNOUNCED * * *
The Boston Area Toy Collectors Club (BATCC) is proud to announce the much anticipated list of the “2014 Top Collectible Toy Companies” in the world based on the national (USA) voting of its active toy collecting audience base.
The chosen firms will be saluted on Friday evening, October 17, 2014 at ‘The Lantana’ in Randolph, MA, (minutes south of Boston, MA USA,) at the invitation only “BATCC’s 14th Annual National Collectible Toy Event”.
Anniversaries being celebrated at this gala will include the 75th of DC Comics’ BATMAN (1939); honored with the 50th of the Ford Mustang (1964), the Ian Fleming/James Bond contracted “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” for NBC TV, MARVEL Comics’ Black Widow, and Hassenfeld Brothers’ (HASBRO) G.I. Joe.
This unique in the nation event has world wide attendance, open equally to all BATCC Members and their families alongside toy collecting non-members, cos-play contestants, retailers, members of the media, toy industry executives/personnel, and more who requested to be on the BATCC’s Official Invitation Mailing List. With a full dinner service and more planned, prompt invite responses/confirmations to the BATCC are required. A limited number of Invitations are still available. (See below.)
The top 20 collectible toy Firms voted in for 2014 are:
(In Alphabetical Order)
CAPTAIN ACTION ENTERPRISES,LLC
DARK HORSE COMICS
DIAMOND SELECT TOYS
FIGURES TOY COMPANY
Mezco Toyz LLC
ROUND 2 Corp.
SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES / HOT TOYS
TONNER Doll Company, Inc.
This year the starting list of nominated toy firms stood at a new, over 40 count high. Many factors lead first to nomination status, then to final voting by collectors. Factors include, but are not limited to, companies with better product exposure, better year long toy company dialogue, and more.
The not-for-profit BATCC, now in its 18th year, first started as a regional organization, then expanded due to toy collector enthusiasm across the USA and abroad. This continuing enthusiasm alone has driven the BATCC to first place rankings on both the GOOGLE and Yahoo search engines. Its newer presence on Facebook is currently growing fastest from Mexico to the tip of South America and throughout Europe.
The BATCC absorbs all localized costs associated with the inventorying, storage, display needs and event photography. Independent of the BATCC Anniversary Displays, all top chosen toy company displays are based on actual toy company submissions/directives.
To obtain an advance invitation, for your prompt response in turn, the BATCC needs your complete mailing address.
