I'm debating this one. I went in 2016 but decided not to go this year because it was kind of overwhelming for me. Then I got contacted about appointments with some companies and kind of regretted not going.

We are just over a month out from NY International Toy Fair. JTA is all set and registered for Hasbro’s exclusive Fan Media/Entertainment Brand Event on Saturday, February 17th at the Times Center in New York City. Let us know what you hope they reveal in our comments! This should be a good one!

I got my Hasbro invite as well yesterday and RSVP'd. I also plan on doing Lego, Mattel, Mezco, Dark Horse, and McFarlane. Still waiting to hear back from some companies.

My other HDN colleague who will be there as well will be covering Funko, Entertainment Earth, Diamond, QMx, and maybe NECA, Good Smile Company, and Bluefin

Oh and now I have Lego too! The only sad thing about Lego this year is that they are only showing off products for the first half of the year up to June. Not that hey ever show convention exclusives but sometimes they may have sets for movies a bit later in the year

I wish I could go this year, but I have to work, and I can't really afford to use the PTO.  :(

It's a trade show. It's not invite only, but it's not open to the public.
