Toy Tokyo and its Underground gallery have become a regular stop for me when I’m in NYC. The Four Horsemen have held their Toypocalypse events there the past two Toy Fairs, and now Mattel is using the venue to host a MOTU art show, with the benefits proceeding the Ronald McDonald House.
Toys, Masters of the Universe, and art? I’ll won’t miss it!
MOTU Art Show To Benefit Ronald McDonald House 10/10-10/24
If you’re going to be in New York in October, here’s your chance to own a piece of original MOTU art and do a good deed for Ronald McDonald House in New York!
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Masters of the Universe®, acclaimed gallery Toy Tokyo Underground in New York City will host a show of original art work created by top comic book and industry artists. Approximately 20 pieces will be available to the public during the two-week exhibit, with Mattel donating all of its proceeds directly to Ronald McDonald House, a program that provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.
To launch the show, there will be a public opening on Wednesday, October 10th, as well as a private celebrity event on Friday, October 12th. The public opening gives toy fans and collectors the chance to purchase the Temple of Darkness Sorceress® figure for $22, a full 24 hours before it’s available at New York Comic-Con! This special traveling figure features an all white/silver deco and opening wings, and includes the Zoar staff and a power orb holder. Better still, the first 500 visitors on opening night get a free art print!
Toy Tokyo Underground is located at 91 Second Avenue, Lower Level, New York, NY 10003, and the show runs from October 10th through October 24th.Gallery doors open at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 10th, so plan to be there early for your chance to own original MOTU art and benefit a great cause!
