Welcome to Rebelscum's annual coverage of the International Toy Fair in New York City! Toy Fair is a chance for toy buyers and industry professionals to check out the product lines for the coming year from all the major (and minor) toy manufacturers. This is the year when STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS rolls into theaters and onto TV screens, and there will be no shortage of cool toys and collectibles representing the new animated direction our favorite hobby is taking!

Just like in previous years, we've sent a couple of our top men to the Big Apple, Dan Curto and D. Martin Myatt, to continue their tradition of bringing you the latest and greatest news from one of the industries biggest events. Be sure to come back all weekend long for more reports and photo galleries.

The Curto/Myatt dynamic duo will also be covering non-SW toy lines over at our sister-site Cool Toy Review. If you have any interest at all in toys that didn't come from a galaxy far, far away, that is a website you won't want to miss!

Poll
Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
