JOSH and I were showing RARE RANKIN/BASS clips during WIZARD WORLD and handing out tons of Promo cards! We even borrowed the ELF GIRL's hat. We enjoyed meeting and greeting all the GREAT RANKIN/BASS fans and brought many RARE things to sell as well. I have some left overs that I am listing on EBAY under seller ANIMAGIC1 and MISER BROS! I also have some DVD left overs that you can e-mail me at Rickgoldsc@aol.com about including WILLY McBEAN & HIS MAGIC MACHINE (re-mastered with the trailer) and a DVD with RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER (With the original GE COMMERCIALS and ending) that also has THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY with commercials and bumpers + HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS Bank Bumpers! GREAT fun to watch during the Holidays! (AND even in AUGUST!)

NOEL NEILL was also at WIZARD WORLD and as it turns out IS a... RANKIN/BASS fan! TV's LOIS LANE from the classic TV Series SUPERMAN with GEORGE REEVES! I brought her my book and she began to tell me the history of the RUDOLPH & SANTA 'ANIMAGIC' figures. Turns out she took a look at them before the con opened and read up on the history. She told me the BUMBLE was her favorite character and we brought her over a large BUMBLE courtesy of TIME & SPACE TOYS! NOEL was GREAT company and even came over and visited with SANTA at our booth! What a SUPER Lady! We Love NOEL! She is definitely a CHRISTMAS NOEL!

RANKIN/BASS and MODELS? YES! TIME & SPACE TOYS had the BEST booth at this year's WIZARD WORLD CONVENTION in CHICAGO! We had the original ANIMAGIC Production figures of RUDOLPH & SANTA, Beautiful Models Lela (Portraying a character from STARGATE on one side of the booth) and Laura (Portraying a RANKIN/BASS Girl Elf), SANTA CLAUS (Tom Frederick) and RARE clips on TV with all kinds of RANKIN/BASS merchandise! It was GREAT! SANTA was even interviewed (As was I) for a CHICAGO area TV Show that will air closer to CHRISTMAS. KEVIN and www.timeandspacetoys.com are taking a similar event to PENNSYLVANIA this December! You won't want to miss it if you live near there! Also, in about a month or so, NECA is issueing a new line of YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS Action figures and Products! YES...the HEAT & SNOW MISERS will be available again! They used the sculpts from the GREAT line that PACIFIC PALISADES did about four years ago for SUNCOAST, SAM GOODY, etc. These are some of the BEST RANKIN/BASS figures to be released! You will be able to order from TIME & SPACE TOYS!
After more than 40 years, SANTA & RUDOLPH from TV's RANKIN/BASS TV Special RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER make a public appearance THANKS to KEVIN KREISS www.timeandspacetoys.com ! They were beautifully restored by SEAMUS and MARK at www.screen-novelties.com ! I can't even tell which side of SANTA's mustache was missing anymore...they matched it so perfectly! RUDOLPH has a perfect bulb nose that is fully functional and they made a nice diorama base for the figures. There is talk of doing exact replicas for the collector's market...STAY TUNED for NEWS on that as well! Many more pictures from WIZARD WORLD to come this week!
