A few days ago, the Toy Industry Association confirmed my press badge to attend the upcoming 2012 Toy Fair New York. The event will be celebrated at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, New York City.

I sent about four emails a few minutes ago, after checking the 2012 Toy Fair exhibitor list, to find out if they are showcasing any Blizzard Entertainment licensed products. This post will be updated whenever I get their individual replies. In the meantime, those who plan to attend the Toy Fair New York event should add these to the list:
- Mega Brands – Booth 753 (Mega Bloks, Warcraft/Starcraft)
- Insight Editions – Booth 5846 (Diablo III: Book of Cain)
- Cryptozoic Entertainment – Booth 4880 (WoW TCG)
