NY Toy Fair 2016: Mattel’s WWE Figures – Elite, Zombies, Basic – VIDEO

One of the lines that I collect with a rabid fever is Mattel’s WWE line. The company has had the license since 2009 and their figures continue to be solid. At NY Toy Fair 2016, there was not much new to show unfortunately, as most of the prototypes on display were of figures that were already out or about to come out. However, there were a few surprises that made me very happy.

Aside from the new elites and basic figures, we also got our first chance to see the Defining Moments exclusive Chris Jericho, as well as a new classic style Sting with an American jacket. The coolest item had to be the world debut of their WWE Zombies line, which includes John Cena, Triple H, Paige, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and The Undertaker in an undead style.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Playmobil booth tour – VIDEO

Playmobil always has one of the biggest booths and the most stuff to take photos or video of, and this year was no exception. What they lack in licenses like Lego has, Playmobil has been a trusted brand for just as long with their line of fantasy and their versions of everyday life that capture kids imaginations. Space travel, pirates, princesses, jungles, zoos, and everything in between (even a Porsche dealership) – Playmobil has it all.

The new key item for the company this year is their NHL line, which features 17 actual pro Hockey teams from the NHL. Two-packs of figures will be available, along with a giant hockey rink and other items to complete this line. Playmobil will also continue their blind bag line of mystery figures with an all-female wave later this year.

NY Toy Fair 2016: HEROCROSS Justice League & TMNT figures – VIDEO

Herocross figurations have been a strong line for the Japanese company, with figures from Star Wars, Aliens, Predator, and Robocop already selling well. At NY Toy Fair 2016, the company showed off their newest series, which includes mini-stylized versions of figures for the upcoming “Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice” film and signature version of DC Comics favorites with over 20 points of articulation, accessories, and other unique features that make this a very cool line.

Also debuting were Herocross versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which might become my very first Herocross toys that I own once they are released.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Quantum Mechanix – Firefly, Star Trek, DC, Supernatural – VIDEO

Quantum Mechanix has been under our radar for too long, and NY Toy Fair 2016 was the perfect place to get to know this great company.

Take a look at some of their newest offerings, including new replicas of famous ships from nerdom including the Keaton era Batwing, Star Trek ships, and The Milano from “Guardians of the Galaxy”. QmX also showed off their 12-inch Firefly Malcolm Reynolds figure, as well as Spock and Captain Kirk, plus their Q figures from DC Comics that I now need to have on my desk.

Fans of Supernatural can now look forward to statues of Sam and Dean Winchester from this company, and hopefully much more if these sell well (so you saltgunners, hunters, and wayward sons need to jump on these). There is plenty more to see so check out the video get the 411 from Quantum Mechanix.

I apologize for the random part of this video that has no audio and is only b-roll (which is thankfully very short). As I learned, banging out 48 videos in five days can lead to some mistakes, and luckily this was the only one I made that I could have prevented. My apologies for that, but I hope you enjoy the rest of the video.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Titans Vinyls – X-Files, Doctor Who, Cartoon Network – VIDEO

We are big fans of Titans Merchandise and their vinyl figures, and are always excited to see what new licenses they will bring to NY Toy Fair 2016. This year was no disappointment, as we get to see a sneak preview of their newest lines from The X-Files, Hannibal, Edward Scissorhands, and the continuation of their Doctor Who and Mass Effect lines.

The big news for me is their Cartoon Network line, which has the ability to access 25 years worth of toons that can become toys. The first series will include Johnny Bravo, Dexter’s Laboratory, Regular Show, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, and the Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy to name a few. We also learn about some of their exclusives that are already out, as well as what might be on the way.

NY Toy Fair 2016: NECA booth tour – Aliens, Predator, DC, Marvel, Terminator, and more – VIDEO

NECA had so much stuff at NY Toy Fair 2016 that I spent over 45 minutes just filming all of their stuff, and had to break it up into four different videos to highlight everything the best way possible. Let’s dive in and get this biggie started!

Our first video is purely about their next figures from their awesome “Aliens” and “Predator” series. Both lines are going strong this year, and their dioramas in the booth continue to be some of the best in the entire event. The seventh Alien series will happen this year along with the 15th Predator wave, which continues to take inspiration from the old Kenner line. “Alien 3” will also get some love this year, so take a look at some of my favorite figures that keep getting better.

In this video, we take a look at the new 1/4 scale 18-inch figures from the Marvel and DC licenses, including versions of Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk from “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, Batman and Superman from the upcoming “Batman VS Superman” film, Harley Quinn from the “Arkham Knight” video game, and a new version of Christian Bale’s Batman in this scale.

NECA has been doing a great job with their 1/6 scale figures as well, as we see in this video that shows some of their other offerings in this size. The Terminator line continues with a new version of Arnold from the first film, the revival of the Rocky figures (which will get new packages and a few new things this year), more figures from Pacific Rim (which may be coming to a close with no sequel in sights), and a surprise figure – Donatello from the 1990’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie! This figure might be one of the best things that was in their booth and went viral during the event, so see it from all angles here.

Finally, more TV & film franchises with figures from Quentin Tarantino’s “Hateful Eight” film, Starz “Ash VS Evil Dead” series, and a few others. The big hit here was the figures from “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures”, which will come with a paper diorama version of their phone booth. Another showstopper was their “Weird Al” Yankovic figure, which comes with two head sculpts and his accordion.

This video also shows off their new life-sized figures of Slimer, Batman, Arkham Knight, Freddy Fazbear, and a mini-version of the Staypuft Marshmallow Man, which buyers can add to their storefront or put in their home to scare away robbers. I hope they do a giant version of Robocop next!

NY Toy Fair 2016: Mezco “One:12 Collective” Spotlight – VIDEOS

A week before NY Toy Fair 2016, Mezco held a super-secret event for members of the media in their fortress of solitude (AKA Long Island City) to show off most of their newest releases. You can check out a walk-through of the event with Pierre from Mezco at this link here, but if you are like me, you have a huge interest in their spectacular One:12 Collective line, so this trio of videos specifically takes an extended look at their enormous 2016 line-up.

Kicking things off is their new DC figures, which includes figures based on the upcoming “Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice” film, as well as stylized comic book versions of Superman, Green Arrow, Flash, Reverse Flash, and Shazam. An additional note in regards to mech-suit Batman, the prototype here was not functioning, but the eyes will light up in the final product.

As if the DC stuff was not cool enough, Mezco will also be creating Marvel figures. This video shows off their two Captain America figures, two Punisher figures, and three Daredevil figures.

Lastly, here are there new figures from the original Star Trek series, which features Captain Kirk, Spock, and Lt. Sulu. Also seen in this video is Space Ghost, two versions of Universal Monsters Frankenstein’s monster, and Judge Dredd’s motorcycle, the Lawmaster.

Unfortunately, there was an issue with the music when the video uploaded, and I prefer not to take videos down once they are online, so this footage has no background music in it. That might mean more of you like it because of the lack of my stock music, so leave a comment and let me know.

Mezco will be unveiling a few more goodies at NY Toy Fair next week, so stay tuned for that very soon.

DC will see three new figures from the upcoming Batman VS Superman film, as well as stylized comic versions of Superman, The Flash, Reverse Flash, Green Arrow, and Shazam.
