NY Toy Fair 2012 – NECA

NY Toy Fair 2012 – NECA

I feel like I already wrote this so I apologize.

MUReview got a walk through of the NECA booth yesterday.  We saw a ton of great stuff from Bioshock Infinite prop pieces to a full line of highly anticipated Hunger Games product.

Nothing thrilled MUReview more though, than the HeroClix Galactic Guardians line that is coming in April of 2012.  We’ve waited a long time to get on board with HeroClix, but I think this is finally it.  A line that features Galactus, the Annihilators, and Nova Prime! Sign us up!  Marry that with what they showed us in a HeroClix iPad app!! (The pad is the game board!!!), we’re all in!

Check out the images below for tons of fun!

NY Toy Fair 2012 – Lego

NY Toy Fair 2012 – Lego

Ashley at Lego was kind enough to give us a nice walk through of the Lego Booth at Toy Fair 2012.  We got a nice close look at all of their Marvel stuff and also had a good amount of time to check out Star Wars and Lord of The Rings products for 2012. 

Some of the highlights, Lego planets in the Star Wars line, a Hobbit game, and of course all the hot new Avengers Lego sets.  All sets retail between about 12 and 80 bucks.  What I really like, is all those confidential markings on the boxes…makes me feel like we got away with something ;).

Check out the gallery below, there is a TON to be excited about!


NYToy Fair 2012 – Mattel

NYToy Fair 2012 – Mattel

We know MUReview to be a long time reporter of all things Marvel and Hasbro, but there are other things out there for sure…like Mattel, and DC.

Mattel was kind enough to book an appointment with us for a booth walk through at NY Toy Fair 2012.  It was there that we learned we missed the boat pretty hard core by not getting to the Matty Collector event.  We didn’t really know what it was, heard about it only in whispers, and color us rookies, we will get there for you next year.  We learned that really, that event is going to show off what we all want to see.  Hardcore DC collector stuff, Voltron …and I really can’t even get past Voltron.

However, at the booth walk through we saw a few interesting things, namely their new Apptivity line up of toys, but head on over to http://www.geekdadlife.com to check out details on Apptivity because that stuff really belongs there.

Check out below for our images of the Mattel booth as well as the press photos we were provided.

Please accept my apologies for not getting to the collector event for you this year, won’t happen again!
