The bankruptcy and liquidation of "the world's biggest toy store," Toys 'R' Us, earlier this year has sent shockwaves through the toy industry. Many toys and smaller toy companies are left without a brick-and-mortar store presence. Is there a retailer that could rise to take the place of the fallen retail giant? Do you truly need a retail presence to launch a toy line? Panelists will take the temperature of the toy and collectibles industry and find the light in the darkness. They include Steven Anne (category manager, toys/licensing at Walgreens), Richard Gottlieb (principal and founder, Global Toy Group), James Zahn (The Rock Father, Toy Insider & Pop Insider) and Jason Labowitz (co-founder, Entertainment Earth and BifBangPow!). Moderated by Daniel Pickett (founder, Action Figure Insider).
