Toy Fair is upon us again, and I find myself asking the same question. Why do I continue to choose NYCC over Toy Fair? Every year I also tell myself to get my act together because I have the resources to make both happen. In the meantime, for those of us who can’t attend, there are plenty of others out there sharing their experiences. Our go to for all the current Toy Fair happenings is always @cobrashowjoes on twitter. We seem to be on the same brain waves as these guys, so it’s always fun watching them share their experience. Expect to see a lot from them. We will try and share as much as possible but our main focus will be NECA’s reveals. They are one of our favorite toy makers and crush it every year. Judging from their Twitter feed, it seems this year could be extra special. (more…)
Hasbro have officially revealed several new figures at their Fan Expo Canada panel. We will start with Star Wars first. Most of the figures were already revealed at SDCC and other places. That didn’t mean there wasn’t anything totally new. Dryden Vos from Solo movie will be joining the Black Series. He wont be like any other Black Series figure though, his scars will change depending on the temperature of the room.
New figures on the Vintage Collection front include: Captain Phasma, with Darth Revan, Elite Praetorian Guard, Enfys Nest, Imperial Stormtrooper also shown.
They also talked about the Black Series Archive line, talking about who is being re-issued for Wave 1. That wave will come with Boba Fett, Bossk, IG-88, and Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) (more…)
