One of my favorite stops along the Toy Fair trail each year is the Dark Horse booth. I get to see Aub, who is so clearly passionate about what is going on at Dark Horse, and I get to see all the amazing toys that Dark Horse has coming for the year. This year, the focus is on a few key properties, Game of Thrones (amazing stuff!) The Witcher (detailed …so detailed), Halo, Outlander, and Peanuts. Let’s have a look at what they were showing off! As a side note…thank goodness for my wife for writing stuff down because it pains me to admit, but by the time we got to Dark Horse… I may have been a little bit punchy from the long day!
Game of Thrones
For 2016 we will get a new wave of finely, highly detailed figures featuring Oberon Martell, Ygrette, Varys, and the Nights King. We also got a look at some stunningly beautiful dragon egg book ends, and a nifty little lit 3d glass cube featuring the Iron Throne.
Dark Horse has been churning out incredibly detailed Halo ships for a little while now. This year, they add to their roster with the Covenant Banshee, Phaeton and UNSC Prowler. Also newly displayed, but not entirely done being painted, the UNSC Spirit of Fire.
Dark Horse is incredibly excited about The Witcher property, what with a mega hit game in The Witcher 3 and a movie on the way, it’d be crazy not to be. Dark Horse and Gentle Giant are bringing their A game to show off the characters here. We get Eredin, Ciri, Geralt, Yennefer, Triss, a wall sculpt and a nifty button / magnet set.
Outlander is entering it’s second season on Starz and Dark Horse is supporting with some swanky memorabilia, drink ware, bookmarks, patches, magnets, a journal! Get your Outlander drink on, watch an episode, you call it fun, we call it Saturday.
Dark Horse has the Peanuts rights back and they are thrilled to celebrate with some great flocked and colorful Snoopies in a mid-size format, as well as a ton of amazingly decorated and beautifully colored blind bag Snoopies.
Korra and Aang
Nickelodeon is getting the Dark Horse business with amazing statuettes of Korra and Aang! Gorgeous!
Plants Vs. Zombies
Who doesn’t want a PvZ deck of playing cards? A fool…only a fool. Everyone else should want a deck of PvZ playing cards, because Pea Shooters rule!
Thanks again to Aub and Dark Horse for having us down this year, we hope you are all as excited to get hands on this awesome product as we are!
