Diamond Select Toys makes incredible action figures, whether it’s MiniMates, Marvel Select, or even any of their other awesome movie properties. Zach from DST let me in on a few things coming, a few things out and we are forever grateful to him.
First up, we got a look at some Select Re-Issues, as far as I’m concerned, no matter where I go I don’t see enough Select on the shelf. Look for the Green Goblin / Norm Obsorne and Ghost Rider in Fall of 2013. Also shown in artist mock up and not hard plastic , a Classic Era Silver Surfer! (silver underpants and all!). This vintage rendition of Norin Radd will look great next to my Select Thanos and Lady Death…and Watcher…and Mephisto!!

Codee is a product we featured on our sister site GeekDadLife after last years toy fair. The response to Codee was crazy ranging from fervent excitement to me getting berated because I didn’t know where people could buy it. GeekDadLife is now mostly defunct but I would be doing you and the Internet a disservice if I didn’t put this in front of you again.
Allow me to introduce you to Romo. An I device controlled, iPhone cradling treaded robot that you can train, explore with, emote with and share. Check out the official details HERE.
Romo is a set of treads at the base with a cradle for your iPhone. Once inserted your iPhone takes the face of Romo, by default a blue funny little smiling guy. Using an iPad or other device you can control Romo’s movements at a max speed of up to 3 feet per second. Romo is your eyes and you can tilt him (your iPhone or iPod touch) 15 degrees forward or 45 back.
Uncle Milton is the toy maker that brought us the Jedi Force power test set that you can find at Toys R Us now. Their toys are both intriguing and educational, seeking to engage children on play and intellectual levels.
Uncle Milton brings us some really interesting Marvel branded goodies for 2013 featuring Spider-Man, the Hulk and Iron Man. No coincidences, some of the greatest minds in the Marvel Universe can bring to the table some of the most learnable toys.
MegaBloks made time for MUReview.net and we thank them truly. Their appointment schedule was well booked but they managed to sneak us in and introduce us to a ton of properties upcoming from this year. As a parent and a fan of many of the licenses they bring to the table, I’m very excited.
Toy Fair brings so much to the table, so many innovative new ideas. It also brings some awful ideas, and it’s fun to pass those by and just wonder, but we aren’t here to talk about what we didn’t like. We are here to talk about and share with you what we loved.
