Attending The Columbus Toy Fair on March 22

This March 22, I will be attending the Columbus Toy Fair at the Ohio Expo Center at the Lausche Building (717 E. 17th Ave. Columbus, Ohio 43211).  I will be displaying both the cardboard Millennium Falcon and some new builds as well.  Stop by if you can!  Hope to see you there!  BTW, here's a little taste of some of the new models below.
