It's the last Back of the Box of 2014! Let's see how December - and the year - is wrapping up with a look back at the holiday week that was on Toybox.


Despite everyone being far too merry to browse the interwebs over Christmas, it's actually been a remarkable week for the site - one of the best on record even with major slumps on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. In all, as of yesterday the site is on 764k US Monthly people, a phenomenal effort and a high the site hasn't seen since October. An amazing Christmas present from you guys to me, and once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Even with the holidays and a reduced schedule (one which carries on until January 5th - there'll only be 3 posts a day, like on weekends, instead of 5.) the site has had some interesting things to see. From an amazing fan-made trailer mashing up virtually every live action superhero kicking off the week, to a swish new Darth Vader toy bring the week to a close, as well as debating the merits of remastering old TV shows and a look back at the coolest toys to come out this year. Here's the Christmas week that was on Toybox.
