Toy Fair 2015: Diamond Select Toys

This it folks, the end of formal Toy Fair 2015 coverage, everything I was able to capture live with my own eyes and ears, ends here.  I assure you, I have saved the absolute best for last.  Last year at Toy Fair, I missed my time with Zach from Diamond Select Toys and I was honestly really upset about that.  Zach is one of the most passionate, knowledgeable and outright awesome people in the world of toys.  He is a credit to all that Diamond Select has achieved and I really look forward to every chance I get to meet up with him and talk shop…or well, listen shop anyway!  We have so much information for you, so many incredible reveals for you, so many release dates and prices, and …AND DOCTOR STRANGE!!  Let us begin….

 

Marvel

Chiefly important to MUReview.net, the Marvel stuff that Diamond Select Toys has going on, and there is so so much.  Unforutunately, my favorite of which is something my eyes did not get to behold, so I pillaged the DST Facebook feed for the image…but…coming soon from Diamond Select Toys under the Marvel banner:

Toy Fair 2015: Dark Horse

Toy Fair 2015: Dark Horse

Dark Horse brings it’s properties to life like few other companies out there.  Leading up to Toy Fair we were very happy to be able to share with you their upcoming Goon statue and Daenerys and Drogon statue.  Seeing them in person…just no comparison, not even close.  They are gorgeous, and so is everything else that Aub at Dark Horse was good enough to take a few minutes to talk to me about.

Game of Thrones

Since 2011 Dark Horse has been bringing it’s Game of Thrones game hard.  This year, Dark Horse will be adding to their incredible list of Game of Thrones display pieces, and (in)action figures!

  • Checking in at about 7-8 inches tall, the Dark Horse Game of Thrones figures are second to none.  While not articulated, the sculpts and paint are photo realistic and just staggering.  All figures are due out this year starting in April and continuing through the year.  Coming in this years line:
    • Brienne of Tarth
    • Little Finger
    • Tywin Lannister
    • Joffrey (let’s be honest he’s a Lannister) Baratheon
    • Hodor (with Bran)
  • Standing in a more statuesque scale for 2015, we are going to get a large Brienne of Tarth.   Brienne is massive, gorgeously sculpted and available in May for $225!
  • As mentioned and posted previously, this year will find us with a dandy of a Dragon and Pretty Lady statue.  Shipping in July for $424.99 get your pre-orders in now because this is a highly limited run!

 

Zelda

Droool…  Link standing, Ganon, these are already out…but not in my house, so I can still drool.  Coming this year though, Link in action pose and Scervo figure.  Both should be out this year but date is TBD.

 

Judge Dredd

Check out the beautiful Michael McMahon version of Judge Dredd, he’s coming, but we don’t know when or how much he’ll cost.

 

Legend of Korra

Dark Horse has a little something for everyone here.  For the serious collector the gorgeous memorial statue of Aang shipping in March for $149.99.

For everyone, the Naga plush doll, shipping also in March for around $35.  IT’S SO FLUFFY!

 

 

 

Halo

There are a ton of options to play Halo in the real world if you tire of your video game controller.  None are more incredibly detailed than the ships coming form Dark Horse in 2015.

Dark Horse is bringing out two UNSC ships and one Covenant ship.  All items are pending licensor approval at this point, but seriously…who isn’t going to approve this awesomeness?  The UNSC ships will be out in July, and the Covenant ship will be out in Fall of 2015, pricing is TBD.

 

Frank Frazetta

Frank Frazetta’s “The Death Dealer” donned the first three covers of Molly Hatchet’s albums, so when I saw that Dark Horse is bringing unique Death Dealer pieces to market I was more than a little stoked.  You can pick up the coaster set and playing cards now for $9.99 and $4.99 respectively.  If you want the snow globe you’ll have to wait till May and the Stein is coming in March for $19.99.

 

The Goon

Sculpted by Sean McNally, Eric Powell’s Goon statue comes out in Summer of 2015 for $150.  This is the fully painted version of the wildly successful Kickstarter campaign which was offered in faux-bronze.  It’s exceptional, and leaves only one question…when do we get Franky?

 

Criminal Macabre

Sculpted by William Paquet, 14 inches tall, this Cal statue will be a highly limited run (375) available in August 2015 for $149.99.  This is a hand painted piece and each one will come with a signed certificate of authenticity.  Not displayed at the show, but spoken of, the winged variant!

Toy Fair 2015: Mattel Collectors Event

Toy Fair 2015: Mattel Collectors Event

I am feeling very old.  I feel this way because Mattel makes incredible He-Man action figures.  I was alive before they started doing that.  They are still doing that, they have been doing that for over 30 years…I am well over 30 years.  The He-Man figures, they keep getting more and more amazing.  Me, things just keep falling apart.

Enough waxing poetic though, a very big and special thank you to Mattel for having MUReview at their Collector Event at Toy Fair 2015!  It was a last second request on my part and they were so awesomely accommodating!  We had a great time, saw incredible toys, got great pictures, and even got sent home with some lovely parting gifts (a giant He-Man Zodiac figure and an awesome Halo Mega Bloks kit!  Speaking of Mega Bloks, this is the first year that Mega and Mattel were on display in the same room at Toy Fair (since the acquisition by Mattel last year).  Let’s have a look at all that our eyes got to see!

DC Properties

The Mattel DC figure lines are an incredibly mature format and they are making some fantastic looking figures!

  • The Batman Classic TV Series action figure line…with Surfboards!  The line features favorites from the 66 series, Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, Batman, Batgirl, Robin and the Riddler!
  • OF COURSE!  There is also the classic Batmobile!!
  • YES!! The Batcave too!
  • Have a look at the pictures for the DC Comics 3.75 inch line.  The line is rapidly growing featuring all of the amazing DC characters you could want, Azreal, Nightwing, Dark Knight, Harley and the Joker, so so many more!
  • The Arkham City Batman Vs. Solomon Grundy playset is amazing!

 

He-Man

I mentioned before, I’m getting old?  Each and every figure displayed is un-freaking-believable.  Gorgeous artwork, amazing sculpts, if you aren’t collecting He-Man in 2015, you are absolutely missing out.

  • We get some Giant figures!  Man-At-Arms and Zodiac!!  Probably about 4-5 times the size of a normal He-Man figure.
  • I’m just gonna list off the figures displayed…check the images for the glory!
    • Lizard Man
    • Ninja Warrior
    • Huntara
    • Snake Men 2-pack featuring Snake Armor He-Man  and Battle Armor King Hsss (Indiana Jones would hate that!)
    • Spirit of Grayskull
    • Oo-Larr
    • Mutli-Packs
    • More Snake Men
    • The list goes on…the pictures are prettier than my words, so go look!

 

Hot Wheels

Hot Wheels just keeps going and growing and growing.  On display this year some awesome vehicles from Stare Wars and back to the future.  The Hot Wheels line will also be representing DC and Marvel Characters.

  • The clear highlight of the Hot Wheels display was a $100+ Delorean from Back to the Future.  Doors opened and closed, wheels flip, things were chaotic but I do believe that I heard someone mention that it was all metal!

 

Terminator

Amazing…on display was an amazing Terminator Mega Bloks bust with light up eyes for Terminator Genesys.  Also on display were Mega Bloks man vs. machine playsets that are going to be a ton of fun to build and play!

 

Halo

I mean, who doesn’t want Halo weapons?  On display, the Needler, Spartan pistol and tons of vehicle and playsets from Mega Bloks to build and enjoy in 2015!

 

 

Minions

Despicable Me introduced the world to Minions.  Now, it’s hard to remember a world without Minions.  Thanks to Mattel, we will have a world even more full of Minions with Mega Bloks Minions, the line features half a hundred little yellow lunatics!

 

 

 

 

Toy Fair 2015: ThinkGeek

Toy Fair 2015: ThinkGeek

For those of you living under a rock, or without an Internet connection, I am here to advise that ThinkGeek is amazing.  They bring incredible, fun and innovative original and licensed products to market year over year and have fun doing it.  They share that fun with you with every purchase…and with me…with all of my purchases….I write this post to you from a MacBook Pro taken out of a Dragon Skin Bag of Holding, purchased, you guessed it, exclusively at ThinkGeek.com!  Huge thanks to Steve for the booth walk through and for his patience in me being a scheduling moron.  Would you believe my professional title is Manager of Test Planning?  Sigh…  Let’s take a look at teh funs that ThinkGeek will be issuing in 2015 to keep you occupied in your house, at your desk, even in your car!

Walking Dead

Walking Dead  is on the tip of everyones tongue, and with brand spankin’ new, non-lethal Walking Dead weapons from ThinkGeek, you will be ready for zombie slaying in no time.  Each piece is highly detailed and would definitely make a great cosplay addition to whatever you happen to be sportin’.

  • Michonne’s Samurai with scabbard.
  • Daryl’s Crossbow (with firing sound) …(but not firing)
  • Merle’s knife hand.

 

Minecraft

As a father of a little guy who is on the cusp of Minecraftyness, I see new Minecraft ThinkGeek products and in tandem, in my minds eye, I see the reduction of my bank account.

  • Minecraft torches. You can hold em, or they angle for wall mounting…and yes, they light up.
  • Minecraft Diamond and Redstone ore cubes.  These also light up.  Yes, yes, I know what you are thinking.  You can light your room just like you can in Minecraft.  Pretty sure that’s what ThinkGeek was goin for here slick.

 

Star Wars

The amount of people at Toy Fair either talking about, but not showing, or showing, but not allowing photographs for Star Wars episode 7 product is enough to give me a chuckle.  It’s everyone, and everyone is tight lipped.  I guess it’s for the better.  God forbid we find out about the lightsaber musical triangle before it’s time.  I kid, I kid.  ThinkGeek has some awesome Star Wars stuff coming out, and already out.

  • You can go buy now, an R2-D2 USB Car Charger.  It’s 40 bucks, it’s awesome.
  • You can go buy soon, Star Wars table place settings (plate, silverware, placemate, napkin, napkin ring).
  • A Death Star Waffle Maker.  Let that sink in…A Death Star Waffle Maker.  (Coming soon).
  • Everything pictured, you can pretty much go buy today, and you should…so look at the pictures and go buy it all.

 

Back To The Future

Remember the April Fool’s gag Flux Capacitor that ThinkGeek advertised last April Fool’s day?   Well..it’s real now, you can go get it.  So do that.  You can use it as a USB charger in your car.

 

Mega Man

The picture says it all.  You can buy Mega Man’s hand cannon.  It has lights, sounds, it has single shot and charge shot.  I’m a big guy, and my hand fits no problem.  It’s $80 but out of stock.  ThinkGeek is expecting a restock sooner than later.

 

Battlestruct

One of my favorite surprises of the show.  Battlestruct, a modular (play) weapons system that allows you to build, configure, reconfigure weapons to any degree that your heart and wallet desire.  You can buy a starter kit that allows for an epic amount of configurations, and you can also buy individual weapon kits that allow for more and more options!

 

Games and More

ThinkGeek is giving us some really neat stuff that…for purposes of this post falls in a sort of “other” category. It’s not licensed, it’s not weaponized, but that doesn’t make it any less cool.

  • Brick Boy.  He’s a little boxy looking person thing with arms, legs a giant head, but connect pegs all over him.  You can load him up with Lego pieces for a build on experience that is unparalleled.
  • Along the lines of Brick Boy, with a build on mechanic, remote controlled build system wheels.  Each wheel has it’s own forward / backward control and you can add about as many wheels as you want to a creation for all sorts of fun!
  • The Hover Kraft game we brought to your eyeballs last Toy Fair has received some updates.  Lighting changes (from red to blue) and difficulty adjustment.  Other than that, it’s still every bit as awesome as it was last year!

 

Toy Fair 2015: Lego Booth

Toy Fair 2015: Lego Booth

Another Toy Fair first for MUReview.net, we found ourselves on the right side of the walls at the Lego Booth to check out Lego Star Wars, DC and Marvel upcoming products for 2015.  We also got an up-close look at Scooby-Doo sets too!  We would like to extend our undying gratitude to the team at Lego for having us down to the booth, we are honored and realize what a privilege it was, and we hope that you all enjoy what we have learned and photographed for you!

Star Wars

Lego Star Wars is reliable for being absolutely awesome.  What was most exciting here though was really what wasn’t shown.  Of course, Episode 7 sets.  nothing on display, only mentioned in whispers.  We did get to see a few upcoming sets, Naboo Star Fighter, Death Star Final Duel set, Imperial Assault Carrier and a Speeder set.  We also got a look at the buildable characters for Luke and Darth Vader which are very pleasing to the eye.  Otherwise the display was largely show casing released items.  We should hear more about Episode 7 sets as the long months up to the films release wear on.

DC

Lego has all the comic guns out, tons of characters are featured in sets in support of Justice League, and some neat new play mechanics are introduced.  Demoed live was a plastic stand that, when a figure is on it, and the stand is pressed, you can essentially fling / flip the figure flying through the air!  Many sets on display for DC are already released, but check out the Joker’s Funhhouse, coming in August!
