It's voting time again for Toy of the Year. With new categories added, and a who's who of toy manufacturer and licenses, who's your pick to win? Two of my favorite new categories which was sorely needed was Action Figure of the Year and Collectible of the Year. For the Action Figure category it is great to see such a diversified pool of nominees. As expected, Hasbro and Mattel, long time action figure pioneers and innovators are on the list. For collectibles, I have to believe that Funko LLC is the company to beat with their Dorbz and Pop! line.
Another returning component of the Toy of the Year awards is the ability for us the fans, the people to vote on our favorite toys. You can cast your vote at www.toyawards.org. What are some of your favorites in each category?
