NY Toy Fair 2016: TMNT Megabloks – VIDEO

Mattel’s ever-expanding Megabloks line continues at NY Toy Fair 2016, as the company showed off many new sets and characters at their press event.

The massive Technodrome makes its debut in this video, and words do little to describe how spectacular this set is. Also joining the line are a bunch of mini-figures and vehicles, including the Turtle Van and April O’Neil, based on the hit cartoon. The surprise of the show was a black and white set based on the original Eastman & Laird comic, which makes for a shockingly good Megablok set.

NY Toy Fair 2016: ‘DC Super Hero Girls’ Dolls – VIDEO

Make way for the DC Super Hero Girls! Originally seen at NYCC 2015, Mattel made the formal unveiling at NY Toy Fair 2016 at their Matty Collector event, with additional items at their actual Mattel booth inside the Javits center.

Above are the dolls and action figures shown during the Matty Collector press event, which includes articulated versions of Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman and Batgirl, along with 12-inch dolls of those plus Bumblebee and Poison Ivy.

At the Mattel booth, we got a tour of the entire line, which also includes some roleplay items and an awesome playset for the action figures. This is a great looking line that I hope does well and expands into a very huge series. I am also very happy that 2016 seems to be the year that Mattel is making big leaps forward in recognizing their female fan base and making action figures that are truly for everyone.

Bandai was well represented at NY Toy Fair 2016, and unveiled a load of new items for their vast Power Rangers line, ranging from the new TV show, “Power Rangers Super Dino Charge”, to their “Power Rangers Legacy” line.

In this video, we learn about the action figures for the new TV show, as well as the Legacy figures. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to film the new Legacy figures, but I can tell you that they are light years beyond the movie figures that the company released last year and fans will be extremely happy with them. Additionally, we also see the new Thunder Megazord and each of the zords, as well as new communicators and morphers from the show.

Also shown was the Ninja Megazord, but photos were prohibited since they did not have it at the show, and instead had a placeholder which will not represent the final product.

In this video, we get a walk through of the new roleplaying items, weapons, and zords from the “Power Rangers Super Dino Charge” series. Learn about all the new things you can do with these toys, as well as how the zords will work, combine, and play, along with how the Dino Chargers will affect them.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Tamashii Nations Star Wars Samurai Figures – VIDEO

Tamashii Nation’s Star Wars figures have been turning heads, giving them the Samurai treatment that the movies were initially inspired from. George Lucas has cited Akira Kurosawa as a source for the look and feel of the original trilogy, and this line of figures has combined those two worlds into one highly-articulated line of toys.

This year, the company debuted a new Boba Fett and the Emperor’s Royal Guard, along with their Darth Vader and new types of Stormtroopers joining the fray. It’s hard not to fall in love with these figures, and it’s even harder not to spend all of your paychecks on them.
