Wishlist 2022: The Black Series

If there is one that is certain in toy collecting, it’s that it never ends.

I thought that it would be a fun exercise to make out a wishlist of new toys that I am hoping will be at the very least officially announced in the next 12 months. And come 2023, I can revisit this list and see how many or little items actually came true!

So this time around as a primer for the final list of my favorites from 2021, I thought I’d take a look at the other end of the spectrum and go over the top 10 disappointing toys that I got in the past year.
