All that glitters isn't necessarily gold -- sometimes it's vinyl, and vinyl molded into designer figures of Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Fans can thank Funko for such glittery (and more chrome-like) goodness, as the toymaker revealed new Hikari figures based on the characters at Toy Fair 2014.
Toy Fair 2014
Compared to the many comic book conventions we cover throughout the year, I don't usually leave Toy Fair with much by way of swag. Since it's a trade show for businesspeople and journalists and not open to the public, most of the merchandise is for display only. Still, I did manage to get my hands on one special giveaway: Underwear. For my iPhone.
Classic "Super Powers" style characters and packaging were on display next to a
On top of showing off a full array of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vinyl toys, Kidrobot had a variety of toy designs -- including for Labbits -- based on DC Comics heroes and villains on display at Toy Fair 2014.
It's the stuff every supervillain-in-training dreams of: A six-legged remote-controlled spider robot that can fire 25 foam darts in rapid succession (although I guess superheroes-in-training probably dream of it too). Say hello to the upcoming NERF Combat Creatrues Attacknid, the future of pretend warfare.
Playmates did a thorough job of building its "World of Springfield" toy line to include scores of regular cast members from The Simpsons from 1999 to 2004, but one potential aspect of the line went unfulfilled for years... until now. Just in time for the show's 25th anniversary, fans will be able to collect action figures of The Simpsons celebrity guest stars in their four-fingered Matt Groening-style glory.
Considering how impressive its Figma and Nendoroid action figures have been over the past several years, I was surprised to hear that Toy Fair 2014 was Good Smile Company's first year at the show with a proper booth. The booth certainly didn't show the toymaker's freshman status, and was full of recent hits like GSC's popular Samus from Metroid Figma and Sonic the Hedgehog Nendoroid, plus a few all new reveals. Get a load of Ghost in the Shell's Major Motoko Kusanagi Figma, The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker Link Nendoroid, a massive titan statue from Attack on Titan, and more after the jump.
DC Collectibles debuted official product images of its Toy Fair 2014 lineup a few days back, but there's still nothing quite like seeing the freshest prototypes and finished action figures, status and other items in the wild. You've already seen the proper product breakdown, so let's get straight to the photos, shall we? Check out much of what was on display at the DC Collectibles booth this year, after the jump.
Saban's localization of Toei's Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, Power Rangers Super Megaforce, finally kicked off on Nickelodeon this past weekend, and Bandai was celebrating the premiere in a big way at Toy Fair 2014. The core component of the line, of course, is Ranger Keys -- the tiny totems of every Power Ranger's abilities that the Super Megaforce crew use to transform into any Ranger from history -- but the team's default pirate-themed gear was also prominently displayed. Classic Mighty Morphin reissues were also on display, including the Legendary Dragonzord and Titanus the Carrierzord. You can see all of the upcoming action figures, Zords, roleplay/costume toys and of course Ranger Keys, after the cut.
