Toy-Fair-2016

For wrasslemaniacs, there’s Wrestlemania. For gamers, there’s E3. For horribly-spoiled little children who deserve a swift kick up the nethers that will bring their tantrum back down to Earth, there’s Christmas. All fantastic annual events, a yearly extravaganza of a single passion. But what about toy lovers? Does Christmas even count, when you’re dead certain that grandma bought you a can of deodorant for that day (BASED ON A TRUE AND HORRIFYING STORY)?

Well sit back chum, because there is one place on this planet that hosts more plastic than a Hollywood surgery on a Saturday. I’m talking about Toy Fair of course, a Valhalla for action figure enthusiasts and collectors from all walks of life. Toy Fair 2016 was held last week, bringing in the distributors and making me thankful that I wasn’t anywhere near the event because I’d have set a land speed record for the quickest personal bankruptcy in history.

Here’s a look at all the cool toys that were on the showfloor:

Transformers

Hasbro’s flagship robots in disguise has recently been making waves thanks to the superb Combiner Wars range of figures which can be merged to form fanboy wet dreams. And for the next phase in the Generations series, they’re bring back one of the biggest Transformers of all time: Fortress Maximus:

But he won’t be alone, as Hasbro also revealed:

  • Blurr with Titanmaster Hyperfire
  • Scourge with Titanmaster Fracas
  • Mindwipe with Titanmaster Vorath
  • Chromedome with Titanmaster Stylor

A Platinum Edition set of Cyclonus, Scourge and a Sweep that reuses certain Generations molds:

And a new set of Transformers based on the Robots in Disguise cartoon that includes Warrior-class figures such as Windblade, Scorponok and Power Surge Optimus Prime:

Square Enix Play Arts Kai

Sure, you can have a perfect sixth-scale replica of Ben Affleck’s Batman. Or you can wonder if your coffee has been spiked when you see the Play Arts Kai range that takes an Elseworlds approach to some of the most recognisable heroes around and runs wild with it. Here’s what the Square Enix toy arm had on show:

Hasbro Star Wars

BUDDADDDAAAAHDAAADAAHHADDDAH! You can’t have a Toy Fair without moichendisin’. And with Star Wars Rebels and The Force Awakens cleaning up at the box office, there’s plenty of Star Wars merch on the way. Hey, somebody has to pay that $4 billion bill to George Lucas. Also, there’s a major spoiler in the gallery below, if you’re avidly watching Rebels. Don’t click yo.

DC

Right, enough of Disney-owned characters. Time for some Warner Bros. properties next. Besides the DC content listed above, the Distinguished Competition had plenty of other toys on display. My personal favourite? The Harley Quinn figures based on designs by one of the best artists in the industry today, Amanda Connor:

Harley Quinn

DC Animated

Designer Series

DC Icons

DC Cinematic Universe

DCU (1) DCU (2)

And that’s it for now! I’ve pretty much just scraped the surface of the Toy Fair iceberg so far. There’s a  ton more still to see, but doing so is hazardous to your financial health at this point.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    If not for being incredibly poor, I’d line the walls of Fort Pillow with these.

    Although why Star Wars doesn’t have a new figurine of its best character I can’t understand.

    • Hera or Ahsoka?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

  • Captain JJ ‘saurus

    All I want is a Red figurine from Transistor.
    That is all.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      You want a red figurine? Run, Rince!

      • I am here!

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        Mwahahaa

  • Hammersteyn

    Bring back He-Man!

    • MattyCollector is actually busy with a new series of Masters of the Universe. Your wish has been granted.

      • Hammersteyn

        Yes!… I mean my one friend is interested

    • HairyEwok

      With the awesome yet disturbing song as a play button on the figurine…..
