I learned this the hard way today when I showed up at TRU at 10:30am.  The stores will now operate at reduced hours from 11am to 7pm.

Obviously it is due to the corona virus concerns and likely that they don't expect many people or families will be coming out to buy toys during this period.  The manager told me that this decision was told to him this morning, so the website may not have been updated yet to reflect this.
UPDATE: I have spoken with the organizer personally, and as per their Facebook page, the toy show is still a GO!  There are approximately 50-60 tables as of yesterday. Due to current COVID-19 situation, it would be nice for those people visiting the show that you practice safe hygiene (wash/sanitize hands frenquently, don't shake hands, etc.),...and if you see an item you are interested in, that you consult the vendor prior to touching/handling an item from their table. Please respect the vendor's decision to limit handling of items.  My understanding is there will be some hand sanitizer on hand provided by the hotel. I will have some at my table and I may ask my regulars to sanitize their hands prior to handling items on my table.  This is to make sure your experience and my experience are as safe as possible.  Also, if you feel sick in anyway, please stay home.  Let's have a safe and fun toy show.

02 Mar 2020 - The next HasLab project

The next HasLab looks like it will NOT be Star Wars, which is a shame (but not surprising, I'm sure Hasbro wasn't going to do any work on Star Wars in case they didn't renew their licensing deal with Disney at a lower royalty rate).

Instead Haslab will be Marvel Legends of some kind... see here at the hint:

My guess would be a full 6-inch scale Galactus or Sentinel.

21 Feb 2020 - Talking ToyFair 2020

The big weekend is here... let's get ready to see what Hasbro has to unleash on SW collectors at ToyFair.

This first one is a nice surprise, the continuation of the retro vintage figure line with a nice Snowspeeder Luke!

Good news... Hasbro and Disney are staying put and sticking with each other.  Hopefully Hasbro forced Disney to lower the licensing fees that they charge them (given the total debacle of the sequel trilogy and the mountains of unsold SW toys, Hasbro sure had a strong case).
