“Each week, we challenge fans to build and submit their best Toy Box creations, so I’m excited to have the chance to see some of our biggest competitors create in real-time,” said John Blackburn, Vice President and General Manager, Avalanche Software. “To date, we have received hundreds of thousands of submissions and nearly 13 million Toy Boxes have been downloaded, which is a testament to our talented fans, including our Toy Box Summit guests whose creations inspire so many other fans to join in the fun.
