I hope nobody missed our Toy Fair coverage of the DC Collectibles booth. In the off chance you did, you can just click that link and go check it out. It’s full of great information and tons of pictures of all that DC Collectibles has coming in 2016. However, I’m admittedly an amateur photographer, so when companies send me proshot stuff, it’s in everyone’s best interest that I share it with you. Check out these awesome shots of what’s coming from DC Collectibles in 2016!
I can’t believe I made it…my last official Toy Fair Show Floor Report post. Since last Saturday, MUReview.net and litlgeeks.com have published over 60 posts, it may not seem like much, but to us, I think it’s more than we’ve ever done related to any single convention. When you put up 60 posts, and you save your favorite for last, it wears on you, because you just want to get that last one so you can talk about the favorite new things that you saw, but now, I’m finally here. DC Collectibles invited us down to their booth at Toy Fair on Monday to come see all of the amazing products that were given the pro-shot treatment just before the show. It was at the booth that we were introduced to Jim Fletcher who gave us a fantastic walk through of all that DC Collectibles will bring out in 2016. It’s always exciting and interesting to talk to someone who is passionate about what they get to work with and Mr. Fletcher showed that in spades, so I would like to thank Jim for the walk through and Sara for setting us up with DC Collectibles for our first time at Toy Fair, it was absolutely memorable, and now… I get to share it with you.
I’m almost at the end of Toy Fair 2016 coverage at MUReview.net. Almost at the end, and I’m saving my two favorite stops for last. This one, and one more. Mezco has brought Marvel and more DC to their One:12 Collective line…and it sucks that I have to write an article about it because there are legitimately very few words for how gorgeous these figures are. That’s not to say that I’m not going to give you something to read here, or good pictures to look at. The good folks at Mezco, Pierre, Drake, they took me into the booth, made me feel like family that they see once or twice a year, loaded me up with catalogs for the kids to look at…though in hindsight, they have some pretty scary stuff at Mezco and that might make me a bad parent, but I digress. Mezco has some brilliant stuff coming to market in 2016, Mez-its of all different flavors, Hellraiser statues, figures, fuzzy dice, the Chucky line continues, we are finally gonna get a crack at Bugs Bunny, and Gigantor has never looked so good or quite so gigantic. Thank you to the wonderful folks at Mezco, it’s always great to see you and I don’t think I’ve ever been quite so excited to share with the MUReview audience, the goodies they will have thanks to Mezco in 2016!
Just before Toy Fair 2016, Patch, maker of really awesome games, became PlayMonster. My head spins at the logistics behind changing a company name and having business cards ready during Toy Fair crunch, but they pulled it off and I love the new name! Patch is a company we hadn’t heard of before Toy Fair 2015. It wasn’t until they pulled us into their booth and had us sign up because we got caught in a promo video being shot, that we discovered Stinky Pig. It was all on the rails from there. The litlgeeks reviewed and loved Stinky Pig when Patch sent it to us, and Patch had since come out with some awesome games, namely one of the holiday hits of 2015, Chrono Bomb. Now, as PlayMonster, the company is poised to deliver an INCREDIBLE and massive portfolio of games to fans waiting for something fun to play! A very big thank you to Sally, the Publicity Monster for PlayMonster…best job title ever! Now, if you want to hear a little bit about everything we saw, read on, but if you just want to look at the pictures, scroll way down to the gallery!
It’s a little crazy that this is the first time MUReview has been around to the McFarlane booth at Toy Fair “officially”. We’ve gone through in years past, brought you some photos, loved all the toys, but we never got the walk through treatment. This year, I’m thrilled that we did because there is so much great stuff to show you and talk about. The fine folks at McFarlane were so nice to us, gave us so much great info, and even some toys to build and share! Thanks so much to McFarlane and Courtney for taking the time to walk us through, 2016 is going to be a fantastic year for McFarlane. A little celebrity fun to note. Todd McFarlane…he’s kind of a big deal, has the same last name as the name of the to…ohhhhhh McFarlane! He was walking around the booth and taking to some folks on video…but he was totally right next to me! That’s excitement!
Jakks Pacific makes titanic toys in the most awesome fashion. Their licenses are strongly supported with just…epic sized plastic. Huge Vaders, Kylo’s, monsterous Ninja Turtles. This year at Toy Fair, Jakks Pacific welcomed MUReview and litlgeeks into their booth to show us just how big things will get for them in 2016…hint…massive!
