Jakks Pacific makes titanic toys in the most awesome fashion. Their licenses are strongly supported with just…epic sized plastic. Huge Vaders, Kylo’s, monsterous Ninja Turtles. This year at Toy Fair, Jakks Pacific welcomed MUReview and litlgeeks into their booth to show us just how big things will get for them in 2016…hint…massive!
Funko is a must visit at any convention or Toy Fair. It’s the law, I didn’t make it up, I’ve just been following it since I’ve been going to conventions and it’s worked out for me pretty well so far. Funko consistently shows off amazing and adorable Pops. In years past though, they have exploded far and beyond that original bread and butter. We now have Dorbz, Mopees, plush, houseware, minis, and so much more.
It was a blustery cold Sunday afternoon in New York City for the Toy Fair 2016 Mattel Collector event. An event normally held at the Javitz Center (Toy Fair central location) during pre-or post show hours. This year though, Mattel invited it’s press based fans off site for a few drinks and some appetizers. Now…normally off site activities are quite thrilling, and I won’t say that this one wasn’t…but man oh man was the weather not cooperating, it was COLD!
For the first year ever in the history of MUReview.net, we are thrilled to bring you coverage of the Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Collector event from the Toy Fair 2015 show floor!! This invite only booth walk through gave collectors / press an incredible up close and personal look at all of the absolutely amazing Turtles coming to market in 2015. I for one, cannot wait to get my hands on almost all of what we saw! Thanks to Playmates for having us down, emphatic thanks to Playmates for the jaw dropping parting gift, Mutated Karai!! I went home Saturday night a super hero to my 4 year old! And now…FEAST YOUR EYES!!
One of the first places we hit at Toy Fair was the Spin Master booth. We showed up there at about 9:01AM and asked for an appointment, because we had never met Spin Master before. To our glee and surprise, we found that Spin Master was available at 10:30, and we could come back…so we did! Most of what we saw can be found HERE. However, because our house is a Paw Patrol house, Paw Patrol gets it’s own post. Our two little guys watch the show on repeat for hours and hours. I say this to you without exaggeration.
