Monster Jam at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore!

2016MJ_32

Monster Jam landed with a bang at Baltimore’s Royal Farms Arena this past weekend. We watched Zombie, Grave Digger, Max D, Scooby Doo, Monster Mutts Dalmation and Rottweiler, and NEA battle it out in head to head and freestyle competitions. There were a lot of changes to the Monster Jam format. Check out my write-up and huge gallery of awesome pics, below.

\IMG_7268

I have 300 pictures to show you from my two Mattel visits. The first event was just for collectables, featuring Suicide Squad and Batman vs Superman, as well as Halo and of course Masters of the Universe and Thundercats. Then the next day I visited the blogger breakfast where we got to see the items for smaller children, including the action figure 3D printer Thingmaker, Hot Wheels, Thomas, Monster High, and more.

Check back soon for my guided tour, but for the time being, check out my pics below.

Ash is back in the new show Ash vs Evil Dead. I love all the dioramas that the artists at NECA put together to help “make the sale” at Toy Fair each year. They always expertly capture the scene from the movies, but showcase the figures expertly. These figures will in stores in March!

2016 Toy Fair Report – Diamond Select Toys

IMG_6536

So many wonders to behold at the DST booth this year. My favorite is the opening Shakespeare bust from stately Wayne Manner. It even functions as a bank, to help you on your path to becoming a millionaire playboy. Once you pick this up, check out our plans to build your own batphone. Retailing at under $200, you’ll get your every Penny’s worth. Ok, I’m sorry.

Lots of cool new Back to the Future mini-mates are headed your way this year. Check out our gallery for pics of the 1950’s Western Marty, 1980’s track-suit Biff, 1950’s peeping tom George, and more. But we really liked these much larger, and slightly animated Vinimates. This Doc and Marty look fantastic, but also check out the X-Files, Aliens, Ghostbusters, and Predator ones as well. These are 4″ high, made of vinyl, and should cost you about $10 a pop.

Don’t stop there, keep reading and check out our gallery below.

We love Modarri in our house, check out the recent Podcast my son put together reviewing his favorite cars. They’re fun to drive with just one finger, but mixing and matching the pieces is half the fun. Wait till he gets a load of all the new sets they’re bring out this year! Click below for more.

2016 Toy Fair Report – DC Collectables

IMG_6342-001
The one showroom that reminds me of the glory days of Toy Fair (this is my 14th) is the DC Collectables offering. I love all the sculpts and accessories, and the depth of characters they represent. Of course the big star this year was Batman vs Superman and Suicide Squad. We looooove this Harley. They also had new figures from Batman the Animated Series, and Batman: Arkham Night.

Tons of glorious pics in our gallery below, check it out!

2016 Toy Fair Report – Spin Master

IMG_5079

Holy cow, the coolest thing we’ve seen at Toy Fair so far is this BB-8. It’s got a remote control, it does voice commands, it’ll even follow you around. It’s just around 16″, and it’ll retail under $200. We’re looking forward to the fall.

Spin Master had tons of fun new toys to show us including Spy Gear, Air Hogs and Tech Deck!

Mezco really wowed us with their One:12 Collective line last year. I loved their Dark Knight. This year they’ve taken it further with the Star Trek, DC, Marvel, and even classic Frankenstein’s monster.

I also loved the huge 24″ Gigantor figures. They’re poseable too! Click below to check out our whole gallery.

2016 Toy Fair Report – Funko

IMG_5167
There was quite a stir in the playmobil world as Funko announced licensed figures featuring the playmobil look and feel. I swung by the Funko booth to check it out. The Doc and Marty look great, still not sure about the sculpted heads on the Ninja Turtles. I loved the new POP figures introduced, and I heard a rumor there are more Garbage Pail Kids blind packs on the way! Click below for my gallery.
