Thanks for the explanation, Dave, and for the mild rebuking, Colman. 

But can someone explain this?

For the record, Dave was on site at Toy Fair. I'm leaving it at that until I can take care of the issue as best as possible. When I have a concise answer, I'll post it.

Because from that, it sounds like Dave was at Toy Fair.  But from what Dave said, he never went to Toy Fair at all, because of the snow and the car and the bus and the sick and all of these things.

So. . .  what's the deal?

I did try to explain that as I mentioned here:

It turns out Dave did manage to make it out to Toy Fair on Monday despite still being sick (which caused him to miss Sunday).  Because his plans initially involved meeting with the various companies on Sunday, they wouldn't allow him to make appointments on the Monday when he arrived. 

So his illness and the weather kept him away on Sunday, but he did manage to get out there Monday.  But it was all for naught as he couldn't speak directly with anyone and any pictures he did get of Sideshow and MR product he didn't feel were worth uploading.

I can't believe how many of the crap sites got coverage. Yakface, JediTempleArchives, YodasNews.... They might as well have not gone since Rebelscum got the best coverage. Yes, I said it. RS has the hookups and they are able to get the best pics earliest. Nobody even came close this year.

And GalacticHunter... What the hell happened to that site? They update so infrequently now. Pawlus isn't on top of the game anymore. And their forums suck too.

And with that, I will end with one last thing...

Wait, Commander Cody is "Durge?"  The same guy from RS?

Oh well according to Dave Myatt's article at RS it sounds like Hasbro was none to friendly to the internet sites at Toy Fair.  Although their main reason for going is to get retailers to buy their products but still.
