This year at Toy Fair, Jazwares surprised the heck out of us! Every Toy Fair prior to 2017, Jazwares has had tons of great stuff to share for litlgeeks. Stuff for much younger toy lovers, but this year the big kids got some love! Now…here is where I let you down. I don’t have any pictures to show you. But I assure you, Jazwares showed off an incredible Assassin’s Creed action figure that will feature full articulation. It looks amazing, highly detailed, and I expect / hope that in around 3 and 3/4 scale, Jazwares will cover some incredible AC characters, Ezio, Altair, Desmond…I’m maybe speculating a little, but stay tuned for more Jazwares / Assassin’s Creed news as it becomes available.
Schleich always puts on a great show at any Toy Fair. They have beautiful, highly detailed pieces that are great for kids and collectors alike. This year’s Marvel and DC offerings are stunning, and all must have!
Spin Master has been on our watch list for a while. Usually it’s for our adorable litlbuddies over at litlgeeks, but today, we are here to talk about one of the coolest toys we’ve seen since we first saw it in 2016. In 2017, we got a full demo of it, we were able to record it, and it’s even more cool today than it was last year. I’m talking about the Spin Master, Star Wars BB-8 Hero Droid! Since we first saw it, it’s had a few updates, the controller is different, it is now RF instead of IR, and the biggest difference is, we have a solid (ish) release date and a price! $249, around August of this year! I can’t say anything that the video isn’t already saying, so click play! Then, scroll down and look at the pretty pictures!
Playmobil made huge waves at this years Toy Fair with their first ever entertainment licensed Playmobil sets. By now most everyone has heard, Playmobil will be releasing a line of amazing Ghostbusters toys, as well as a line of How to Train Your Dragon toys! Put that together with all of their other amazing toys, boats, Romans, Egyptian Pyramids, camping sets, grab and go play sets. Playmobil wins at play in 2017!
Tomy is taking over the world, one Pokemon at a time. This year, Tomy has gone to great lengths to expand the Pokemon line just massively. Adding to their portfolio, they are bringing Lightseekers to market in the fall of this year. One of the most innovative Toys-To-Life packages we’ve ever seen! Let’s have a look at all the great stuff coming from Tomy this year!
