Holy Mountain Toy Vault: Toy Hunting In Chicago / Toy de Jour 

HOLY MOUNTAIN TOY VAULT

My sweet spot for toys is definitely kaiju and Shogun Warriors with a healthy love for all things Japanese.  That specific predilection aside, I do have a profound love for the toys of the '80s as that was my childhood years steeped in He-Man, Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and G.I. Joes.  If your personal sweet spot for toys is the 80's into the early 90's then this is absolutely the spot for you.  Toy De Jour is filled with a wonderfully eclectic collection with a concentration on the '80s containing not only the names I mentioned previously but all the deep cuts you know and love if you are truly a child of the '80s.  Last time we were in Chicago my man Joel and I stopped in to interview the owner and buy some toys, you can watch that interview in the video attached to this post.  Also a big shout out to Toy De Jour for turning us on to the killer Galaxxor figure line!
