UnderScoopFire is a website dedicated to children of the 80’s and it also offers up one of my favorite weekly podcasts. Last week, the USF crew was talking about the upcoming Village Gate Toy Show in Rochester, New York and I asked Howie Decker if he’d mind sending along some photos of the show. Well, much to my surprise, he nearly choked my email provider with a ton of great pictures. Check it out…
“Hashtag” the UnderScoopFire crew: Googs, Howie & son Charlie, Corey, Chad E Young, Joe, and Tank.
(Remember Tank? We did a collector profile on him a while back.)
The Village Gate Toy Show looks like an amazing event with plenty of vintage toys for all kinds of collectors…
A sea of Transformers, old and new.
Vintage Star Wars box art is so iconic. It’s always great to see a shelf of these boxes.
I probably would have dropped a bundle at this M.A.S.K. table.
Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain always bring back a flood of memories.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen Sectaurs in a glass case before.
G.I. Joe was well-represented.
The box art on those Super powers toys gets better with age.
Garbage Pail Kids and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — two of my favorite things.
This toy show even had cosplayers. Corey made some new friends.
Real-life Dreadnok sighting! (That was JD’s joke from the General Geekery podcast, so please send all hate mail to him directly).
Tank added these toys to his collection.
A HUGE thanks to Googs, Howie, Corey, Joe, and Tank, of the UnderScoopFire team, for allowing me to share their photos here. Now, head over to underscoopfire.com and listen to the podcast about their visit to the toy show. Are you scoopin’ it!?!
