Happy Valentine’s day, y’all! Thanks to an influx of nasal steroids, antibiotics and green tea we’re finally on the mend. Really, coach, we’re ready to go back in. Honest!

For some reason we got a shitload of press releases yesterday while we were out at Toy Fair. So we’re going to skip the link blogging and just roll with the NEWS. Fair. Balanced. Hard-hitting. The way you like it. So much is going on, and we know you don’t want to miss one minute of the fun.

We also have a ton of photos from Toy Fair, including Neca, Sideshow and the kind of things only The Beat would be interesting in. Believe me, some of it is good! But we’re going to have to post it on Thursday because THERE IS JUST TOO MUCH GOING ON HERE TODAY! IT’S OUTTA CONTROL!
