Behind the Plastic – Saturday, JULY 22
6-7pm ROOM 1A
Behind the Plastic: From Concept to Collectibleâ What are the steps to making an action figure? This panel of toy professionals discusses the process of how your favorite characters go from an idea on paper to a toy in your hot little hands. Preproduction, design, and manufacturing are part of the process, but what does that entail? How does a character get chosen? Why do they pick a particular version of a character? What materials do they use? Ask any burning question youâve ever had about the action figure business and be a fly on the wall as some of the top names in the industry sit down together, as they do only once a year at this event, and talk toys. Moderator- Julius Marx from Action Figure Times
