MUReview has been literally bleeding gobs of Toy Fair 2015 Coverage and it might be getting a little unwieldy from the home page. I wanted to give everyone a place to get all of the goods in one place. We still have official press stuff to put up, it will all land here, and this post will be sticky for a little bit to make sure everyone gets a crack at what we have put together.
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….
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.
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.
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!
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!
