NY Toy Fair 2016: DC Collectibles Video Tour – Batman, Suicide Squad, DC Icons, and more

As mentioned before, my microphone began to have some issues during the last leg of this event, which led ultimately to its demise. Please excuse any scratchy audio, I did my best to make it tolerable when I could, and I can promise that this problem will not happen again.

Jim Fletcher takes us on our annual tour of the DC Collectibles booth with the usual laughs and silly nonsense that you have come to expect from us. In this first video, we look at the newest statues from DC Direct, including the amazingly lifelike statues from the new “Suicide Squad” film, including Harley Quinn, The Joker, Deadshot, Killer Croc, Kitana, and Captain Boomerang. We also see the new statues for “Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice”, with Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.

Additionally, check out the new statues and figures from DC TV, including Flash, Arrow and Supergirl. Stay tuned until the end to see the new prop replica of Captain Cold’s freeze gun, which we try to test and see if it really works.

In our second video, we see the great new line for the Harley Quinn comic series, which hardcore fans will certainly love. Also for the hardcore DC fans, the continuation of their DC Icons figures, which features new version of the John Stewart Green Lantern, Static, Firestorm, Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman, The Joker from “The Killing Joke”, Cameron Stewart style Batgirl and her motorcycle, a deluxe version of Cyborg and the enormous Darkseid figure. Plus, the new accessory packs for this line that are good enough that even casual fans might want to invest in these.

Lastly, the newest figures from the hit video game, “Batman: Arkham Knight”, which Jim assures is far from over yet, and now includes Oracle, Poison Ivy, vacation Joker, Harley Quinn and Batgirl.

Finally, in our last video, we spotlight all of the new offerings from the “Batman: The Animated Series” line, which includes a new version of the Batmobile, Christmas Joker, Harley Quinn, a five-pack with the ladies of DC animated (Livewire, Batgirl, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy), The Demon, Ras Al Ghul and his daughter Talia Ghul, the Ventriloquist, Batman Beyond, Frank Miller style Batman, Carrie Kelly Robin and Mutant Leader, Harvey Bullock, and more.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Mezco Toyz booth tour – One:12 Collective, Marvel, DC, Mortal Kombat – VIDEO

Mezco Toyz may have just set a new standard in excellence when it comes to six-inch action figures, and when you see this video with their new One:12 Collective line, you might say the same.

We already covered Mezco extensively at their pre-Toy Fair press event, so if you want to see much more details about all of their figures, especially the One:12 Collective, you should check out our post here, which also features all of these toys out in the open and not behind glass.

At NY Toy Fair, the company debuted their first big 1/12 scale vehicle (excluding the Lawmaster motorcycle), the Batmobile from “Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice”. This was teased before the event, but seeing it in person is something else. We also see their six-inch figures from Marvel, DC, Star Trek, and a few other licenses.

We also learn more about what is next for this growing line of figures, and I expect very big things from Mezco as the year goes on.

Our second video with them takes a look at some of their other figures, including items from Mortal Kombat, Gigantor, Beetlejuice, Batman Returns, Hellraiser, Child’s Play, and their Living Dead dolls.

NY Toy Fair 2016: DC Multiverse figures – VIDEO

As part of the Matty Collector event at NY Toy Fair 2016, Mattel showed off their next line of DC Multiverse figures. Included in this new wave is the Mutant Leader and armored Batman from Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns”, The Joker, a Doomsday Superman hybrid that I do not know the name of at this time (but feel free to let me know in the comments), figures based on the TV show versions of Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl, and a massive spoiler in the way of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor from “Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice” with no hair and in prison clothes. So, anyone complaining about Lex having hair in the film can STFU now. The build-a-figure in this line will be the giant Doomsday figure seen here.

Also on the way but previously shown are more from “The Dark Knight Returns” including Batman, Superman, and one of Batman’s soldiers.

NY Toy Fair 2016: LEGO DC Comics & Star Wars Sets – VIDEO

LEGO is the original leader in brick construction sets, and the amount of licenses they have under their umbrella continues to grow at NY Toy Fair 2016.

This year, we were able to take a look at several of their licenses, including their DC Comics sets above. New sets from “Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice” join their collection, along with micro sets of famous DC characters in tiny cars that will be great for collectors of all ages.

In part two, we take a look at their newest Star Wars sets, which includes new construction sets from the original trilogy, Disney XD’s “Rebels”, and the newest show in the franchise, “The Freemaker Adventures”. There are some great items in this line, including some huge vehicles and sets. Not seen at this event was their massive set for the Battle of Hoth from “Empire Strikes Back”, which has to be seen to be believed.

Also shown (but not caught on video due to timing) were new sets from Captain America: Civil War, the upcoming Angry Birds movie, a new series of blind bag mini-figures, and more from their Nexo Knights and Ninjago series.

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.

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: 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.
