Dark Horse makes comics, but they make some mean toys too. They have thrown their full weight behind some exceptional Game of Thrones pieces, they are also supporting some of the video game industry’s strongest titles, like The Witcher, Zelda, Mass Effect, and Halo. Their booth is persistently one to not miss at Toy Fair, so we didn’t and we are psyched to be able to share it with you!
Game of Thrones Check out the Hodor Door Stop. Just…just freaking look. It is all the things you’ve ever wanted. If it wasn’t, you can also grab an incredible Jon Snow bust, beautiful figures, magnets, and a Three-Eyed Raven Snow Globe!
The Witcher Dark Horse is touching all of the beautiful main characters right up through the most recent expansion. The highlight for me is the bust, who has an exceptional level of detail present on his playing cards…let that sink in.
Halo Halo vehicles abound here, they are all stunning, the bigger the get, the more they cost, but they are worth every dime.
Zelda This beautiful Zelda statue will come out this year to show support for the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. I can’t wait for the game, I can’t wait for the statue.
The wonderful folks at Bif Bang Pow! graciously invited MUReview down to their booth at Toy Fair to show us all of their awesome stuff. We very much enjoyed, and were incredibly thankful for the water…because we very…I very much needed it!
Pin Mates Pin Mates are an incredible throw-back to the toys of yester-year. Simple, but incredibly well designed, and artistically mesmerizing, these little finger puppet sized figures pack a big, high gloss punch. Bif Bang Pow! has done an excellent job of packing a ton of great detail and flash into each Pin Mate. Mates feature licenses from quite a few great lines, Marvel, DC, Star Trek. This year, the line will grow and grow, each Mate is numbered, and vehicles too!
Tiki Tiki and Push Puppets Tiki Tiki, stackable Marvel themed awesomeness. Push Puppets, another awesome throw-back. Push Puppets featuring Marvel and DC Heroes are sure to delight.

Chair Capes Because, why shouldn’t your chair be as super as you are? The patent for these awesome chair-cessories was granted this year, so expect the line to blow up!
MUReview was lucky enough to get our first ever walk through of the Bluefin booth from our friend Jared. While we’ve looked on in awe for many years, Jared brought us up close and personal to all the fine wares that Bluefin has to offer, and they are fine. Thank you Bluefin for the walk through, thank you for the chance to see and hear about all of the incredible stuff you have coming out in 2017 and beyond….and also…Iron Mans for days!!!
Marvel Bluefin puts the Marvel collectible world on notice with a full size, hyper-detailed Doctor Strange. If you’ve got $10,000, yer in! Their Iron Man collectibles are stunning, metal, lights, pose-able, beautiful. We also get samurai editions of Spidey and Iron Man. You’ll want for nothing here.
DC Batman, Joker, Harley, more Joker, more Batman, so many accessories!!
Star Wars Some of the nicest model kits for Star Wars I’ve ever seen are from Bluefin. Don’t forget samurai figures, and R2-D2 and C-3PO are great compliments to one another, or, so I’ve been told.
Movies Tyler Durden, Bruce Lee, Fight Club anyone?!
Games The Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat game here is strong. Reptile folks…Reptile.
Anime I want to say I don’t know much about Anime, but Voltron, Power Rangers, Gundam, I know plenty about the first two, and enough about the later to make Bluefin a very dangerous place for my wallet to know about. Add Dragon Ball fun to the mix and you can’t lose here.
Sports Wrestlers, boxers, Mike Tyson, Hulk Hogan, beautiful sculpts, incredible details. Must own!
Transformers Autobot Drift folks, he can’t transform, but if looks could kill, you’d be DEAD!
MUReview went down to the McFarlane booth at Toy Fair this year, and we met one of the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable folks that McFarlane or any company could have offered, Christopher H. Incredible energy, incredible depth of knowledge about his products. It was really cool to be able to talk to someone on this level about the great stuff McFarlane had to offer. That’s why you are here, right? You want to hear about what McFarlane had to offer? You are right to want to hear about it, because it was all good, and you’ll want it all.

Construction Sets The most exciting part of our tour was undoubtedly the Construction Sets section. McFarlane will feature sets from some incredible licenses this year, more Five Nights at Freddies, Steven Universe, SOUTH PARK!! THE FRACTURED BUT WHOLE!! Featuring incredible build mechanics, detailed figures, all at an affordable price point, keep your eyes out for these to hit shelves soon.

Borderlands 2 Borderlands has an incredible cult following and these figures will make fans of the game, and casual fans alike, collectors!
Destiny You can’t take three steps without running into a gamer that loves Destiny. McFarlane will be bringing us a figure for each class…and look at that gun!
Gears of War
Mass Effect Not sure if you heard, but Mass Effect gets a new game this year. …This year! Sam Sheppard won’t be making an appearance, but McFarlane will be giving the business to some of the main characters.
Titan Fall 2
Spawn We’re at McFarlane, gotta have Spawn. Another year, more chains. These are always stunning figures and display pieces.
The Walking Dead It’s the year of Negan. Check out that stunning display piece. Carl gets an action figure, Glenn gets an action figure! Negan gets an action figure! Lucille…she’s a bat, but you can buy her too, now with more bloody!
NFL NFL figures are what drew me into McFarlane so long ago. They were my first “adult” collection. I had every figure, including chase variants up through, I think series 14. Since I sold my original collection for storage space and financial reasons, McFarlane has made me pay in regret with year after year of astonishing figure. I’ve kept my Giants, and last year, added Odell Beckham to the bunch. This year, we get some more really beautiful figures, and McFarlane is going to go with the solid colored uniforms to boot! (Neon Green Seahawks!)
I don’t want to toot my own horn, but we here at MUReview kinda already blew things out with Mezco at their pre-Toy Fair event. You should definitely click that link and read up, tons of great info, exceptional figures. For the Toy Fair show floor, at Mezco, we don’t have any visual updates to add, though we still took tons of pictures and you can check them out in uncategorized “hey this is what the Mezco booth looked like” fashion below. For now, I do want to take a moment to relay something i found to be vitally important. One:12 figures will continue to get variants. No one was making a peep as to what variants….but the promise and the hope is all I need. Also important, review of the One:12 Flash within the next 3 weeks!
