Sotheby's is delighted to announce a sale of the celebrated collection of toy boats, soldiers, motorcycles and classic board games lovingly gathered over nearly four decades by legendary collector Malcolm Forbes and his sons.

The auction will also include 19th century and American paintings depicting the joys of childhood and, together, the collection is estimated to bring $3/5 million. For the next several months, most of the Collection will remain on view at The Forbes Galleries on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan where it has been installed for the past 25 years, before moving to Sotheby's York Avenue headquarters for exhibition and sale on 17 December 2010.

The 16th year of Fan Expo Canada saw over 60,000 people crowd into the north building of the Toronto Convention Centre over three days (August 27th to the 29th). This event combines five conventions into one: Comics, Horror, Sci Fi, Gaming and Anime. Fans got a chance to meet their favourite celebrities and pop culture heroes, rub elbows with well known comic book artists and writers, sample upcoming video games, attend workshops and panels, and spend, spend, spend in the retail area that was 600 vendors strong.
