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.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Power Rangers figures, Megazords & Props – VIDEO

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: Four Horseman’s Mythic Legion figures – VIDEO

Eric Treadaway of Four Horsemen Studios gave us the scoop on the latest “Mythic Legions” figures, which might be one of the most anticipated lines from an indy toy maker in quite some time. Coming off the heels of a highly-successful kickstarter campaign, the Four Horsemen have been hard at work creating the second series of this line, which became one of my favorite toys from the entire Toy Fair 2016 event.

This interview discusses the plans for the second wave, as well as their deluxe trolls figures, and how you can get your hands on these glorious toys. Quite simply, they are the perfect fantasy line that collectors have wanted for ages and our nerdly prayers have finally been answered.

NY Toy Fair 2016: HALO figures, Megabloks & Roleplay/ RC toys from Mattel – VIDEO

At the Matty Collector press event, Mattel debuted their latest steps in the HALO franchise, which now goes beyond Megabloks and into action figure territory.

2016 marks the end of the license from McFarlane Toys, and the beginning of Mattel taking control of the Xbox’s biggest FPS game. Check out the new gun replicas, action figures, and plenty of new Megablok sets. Also joining the line are a pair of remote control vehicles that were not available to play with at the event, but certainly look like a lot of fun.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Mattel’s Kubros – Star Trek, HALO, Destiny – VIDEO

During NY Toy Fair 2016, Mattel revealed that Megabloks were not the only construction set they were producing, and have now added Kubros into their line-up.

Kubros are part of the Megabloks family and are stylized (Minecraft style, in fact) building sets so that you can create a block style character of some of your favorite pop-culture icons. Two waves been scheduled so far, with each one having six figures in the wave, including the T-800, Hellboy, He-Man, Skeletor, Spock, and characters from Destiny, HALO, Minions, and Assassin’s Creed to name a few.

Please excuse my scratchy audio here, my microphone was beginning to die at this point and started to have issues on this day.

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.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Mattel’s Suicide Squad figures

At the Matty Collector event during NY Toy Fair 2016, Mattel unveiled their anticipated action figures for the upcoming “Suicide Squad” movie. This lineup includes two 12-inch figures (with limited articulation) of an unmasked Deadshot and Joker, along with the first wave of six-inch action figures that include Katana, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot (with alternate Will Smith head), The Joker, and a gas mask wearing Batman.

Noticeably absent from this presentation was Harley Quinn, whose only representation in figure form that we have seen thus far was at DC Direct as a statue. Not sure why Mattel is keeping their Harley under wraps, but I am sure we will see her in the second wave of this line, along with the rest of the team.

NYToy Fair 2016: Monster High Dolls from Mattel – VIDEO

A doll line that I have some curiousity about is Mattel’s Monster High series, which takes your average fashion doll and spooks it up a bit. Mattel unveiled a bunch of new products for this line during NY Toy Fair 2016, and here is your chance to get a closer look at these scary cool series.

Take a look at the latest Monster High dolls, the new Monster High minis (more affordable at 2.99 a figure), and their new 12-inch fashion dolls for $25 each.

NY Toy Fair 2016: SH Figuarts Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures

SH Figuarts has been doing tremendous things with their line of figures, hitting up big anime properties along with some others like the new Freddy Mercury of their Michael Jackson figures. At NY Toy Fair 2016, the company debuted their new figures based on the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. Highly articulated and resembling their cartoon counterparts, SH Figuarts TMNT line is going to turn a lot of heads and attract many new buyers to the line, and I hope it continues next year with the addition of April O’Neil and some bad guys (who wouldn’t want a Shredder as part of this series?).
