Press Release August 24, 2015
* * * 2015 TOP COLLECTIBLE TOY COMPANIES ANNOUNCED * * *


The Boston Area Toy Collectors Club (BATCC) is proud to announce the much anticipated list of the “2015 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, September 25, 2015 at ‘The Lantana’ in Randolph, MA, (minutes south of Boston, MA USA,) at the invitation- only “BATCC’s 15th Annual National Collectible Toy Event”. 


The top 20 collectible toy firms voted in for 2015 are, in alphabetical order:

ALEXANDER DOLL CO.
CORGI (HORNBY)
DARK HORSE COMICS
DC COLLECTIBLES
DIAMOND SELECT TOYS
FUNKO
GREENLIGHT COLLECTIBLES
HASBRO
JAKKS PACIFIC
KOTOBUKIYA CO.
LEGO
MAISTO/BBURAGO (MAY CHEONG)
MATCHBOX (MATTEL)
McFARLANE TOYS
MEZCO TOYZ LLC
NECA
NJ CROCE CO.
ROUND 2 CORP. (JOHNNY LIGHTNING)
TONNER DOLL COMPANY, INC.
UNDERGROUND TOYS

Along with honoring the above 20 top-voted firms at this elegant, fun event, the BATCC will have special exhibits to celebrate the 75th anniversaries of DC Comics' 'The Flash' (1940) and 'The Joker' (1940); Gerry Anderson's UK launched 'THUNDERBIRDS' (1965); the 60th anniversary of the Bentley 'Silver Cloud' and 'S' series motor cars; and a special tribute exhibit to Boston's own, the late actor Leonard Nimoy (STAR TREK, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., etc.).

Speakers will include the noted toy designer and production sourcer, Vinnie Nauheimer, who left the then-top toy retailer in the USA to command a key position at Empire Toys (1976-1981), deciding  which creative toy properties (robots, figures,etc.) --then taking Japan by storm-- would have the same reaction in the USA.

Pending confirmation at press time, die cast collectible maverick, Tom Lowe, has been invited to publicly announce his re-launch of the highly popular Johnny Lightning brand that he originally put back on the map in the 1990's, stunning many.

The centerpiece Live Auction of MATCHBOX prototypes, donated directly from MATTEL, will be joined with a 1-of-only-200 handbuilt 1:43 scale, DUESENBERG "TWENTY GRAND" model, (valued at US$420.00), showcasing the highest level of rare craftsmanship from B&G Historic Line Models with EMC, in honor of our late Member and famous Jaguar motor car designer from England, George Frost. 

This unique-in-the-nation event has a world wide attendance, open equally to all BATCC Members with their families and friends alongside toy collecting non-members, retailers, members of the media, Toy Industry executives/personnel, Cos-play contestants, and more who request to be on the BATCC's 'Official Invitation' mailing List. With a full dinner service, giveaways, and more planned, prompt invite responses/confirmations to the BATCC are required. A limited number of invitations for active response are available on a first request, first confirmed basis. (See below for BATCC contact choices.)

The not-for-profit BATCC, now approaching its 19th year, is a donation and Member dues-paying organization that first started as a regional organization, then expanded due to toy collector enthusiasm across the USA and abroad. Currently, its audience is fastest growing from Mexico to the tip of South America and throughout Europe.

The BATCC has always given back to the community, with 'The Home for Little Wanderers' being its primary cause for well over a decade. Established in 1799, 'The Home' today has grown from its beginning mission of helping the abused and abandoned youth of Boston to today being a refuge of assistance,training, and more from birth to age 22.

To obtain your own Official Invitation, for your prompt response back to the BATCC in turn, the BATCC first needs your complete name and mailing address.
