Today is the twelfth anniversary of MillionairePlayboy’s lauch, so I’m starting off reviewing the One:12 Dark Knight Batman.
One of my favorite sights at the 2015 Toy Fair was Mezco’s One:12 Batman, based on Frank Miller’s Dark Knight series. Low and behold my persistence paid off and I was gifted the black and white version for being a loyal supporter of Mezco’s (This was my 14th Toy Fair). I was so inspired by the great look they captured, I took it into the studio and had a great time playing with the lighting and what not. Click below for some more pics of this amazing piece, as well as an overview of Mezco’s Toy Fair offering this year.
It was on 03.03.03, twelve years ago, that we launched MillionairePlayboy.com. We’ve gone through some changes, we’ve covered 13 Toy Fairs, we’ve covered concerts and beauty pageants and been featured in The Washington Post and on G3TV. Stay tuned today as I add some new features, look back through some old ones, and celebrate how far we’ve come. Oh yeah, I’m photographing the BUSH concert tonight. Not too shabby.
I had a wonderful time checking out all the new sets at LEGO this year. I dug seeing the new Minecraft, Star Wars and Scooby Doo sets, as well as a couple new Lego Movie sets. We’re finally getting the double-decker couch! I’m also very excited about the Jurassic World sets coming out closer to the movie. Click below for a ton of pics.
Sweet! It’s playmobil time. I’ve been covering playmobil’s Toy Fair booth since 2001, and it’s typically my favorite appointment. There is some exciting surprises coming up, so stay tuned for word on those. In the meantime, let’s check out the new line-up for 2015, including the Super 4!

I have to admit, I came to Bandai mainly for their Big Hero 6 toys, but their Power Rangers Dino Charge display was one of my favorites at all of Toy Fair. Back in the day, each company would have elaborately decorated show rooms with actors, amazing displays, theatrical lighting, sometimes even mood music or occasional fog. Those days are gone. Everything is either in a classy glass case, or simply lined up on a shelf. Bandai knocked my socks off with their display. Click below for some of my favorite pics, and yeah, their Godzilla, Sprukits, and Big Hero 6 figures.
We had a great tour of DC Direct today, one of my favorite stops every year. Plenty of great figures and statues from the rich DC universe’s books, TV shows, and video games. We love the Cover Girls and Black & White Batmen, as well as all the super detailed Arkham figures. Check out my gallery below.
We visited Funko today at the 2015 NY Toy Fair. Funko is responsible for the Pop Vinyl and ReAction Figures that are very popular right now. I’m still working on all the captions and write-ups, but you gotta see these now. We were really impressed with the Karate Kid, Garbage Pail Kid, Dr. Who, and Big Trouble in Little China. I have over 100 photos below, check it out! And keep track of us on Twitter, @MillionairePB, and Instagram @AgeOwns for instant updates all weekend.
Monster Jam came back to the Washington Region this weekend. We had a blast watching Grave Digger, Stinger, Backwards Bob, Crushstation, Krazy Train, Spike, Megabite, and Aftershock tearing up the dirt in the Verizon Center. The format was a bit different this year, but we enjoyed it. New memories, and a whole batch of photos were gained. Click below for more.
