Hasbro, Toy Fair 2015 Presentation 1pM Times Center. Front row center, lots of leg room.
Hasbro greeted it’s friends into the Times Center on 41st and 8th in NYC today. The entry hall was all decked out with fun signage for Nerf, and encouraging folks to create their own play experience. Sounds like a theme….
Once checked in, guests were treated to tubs of Nerf darts and some create your own super hero Mr. Potato head jars. I’ll be leaving with ¾ of both an Iron Man and Hulk Potato, one for each kid, so, thanks Hasbro!
Quickly, guests were ushered into the presentation room #HasbroToyFair on screen. It’s worth noting, outside of the presentation room was the biggest freaking Furby I have ever seen, decked out like Chewbacca…you know, the Wookie? We got to see him rolled back stage, maybe he will be part of the presentation?
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Justin from Hunter PR for having MUReview to the show. In seats for MUReview, myself DJ and my photographer / expert note taking assistant, Theresa. On to the show though, let’s see what we’ve got!
This is the 8th annual Hasbro Preview event…I’ve been around for like 4 of them…that’s pretty neat! So you are all aware, we can’t take pictures. Everything should be on the floor though, so that works. We were asked to be polite about getting shots…that’s pretty cool, I think they were paying attention to the shenanigans last year! (Note, it’s funny how they asked, specifically meant pretty much just one person, and that one person was still a d1ck about it).
Marvel first by Adam Biel and Dwight Stahl! Marvel first! Marvel First! Dude’s in a Captain America T-Shirt…can’t be a bad guy.
Marvel’s entertainment slate this year, Age of Ultron, Ant Man, Avengers Assemble, Web warriors, Guardians of the Galaxy (Cartoon late 2015). For the first time ever we will see some Marvel Play-Doh, an Avengers Monopoly game? Neat!
Avengers first, Age of Ultron, kids stuff first…

Why’s it called that? Because they want to hit 500 characters. The first year will have 70 figures over 3 waves of a blind bagged 2-inch figure set. The deco is solid enough, and it does not appear that there is articulation, but characters of note on the slide, Cap, Ghost Rider, Iron Man, Hulk, Doctor Octopus, Punisher. Look for the line to start hitting in Summer of 2015.

Dates on some of the Legends stuff and Infinite was a little tricky and I apologize. There were dates on some slides, but not all, and almost never mentioned out loud, and slides were fast and furious.
Maybe, you should go have a look at the gallery for now to see what all this amazing stuff looks like in person. We will be back tomorrow and Monday bringing you the conclusion of Hasbro event coverage as well as an amazing amount from the show floor at Toy Fair. Thank you to Hasbro for having us, for the great event, for the awesome goodie bag, and for what is promised in 2015. It is going to be a very very good year!
