NY Toy Fair 2016: Diamond Select booth tour – Batman, Ghostbusters, X-Files – VIDEO

Diamond Select is a booth with so many different properties, they always get at least two videos from us. This year at NY Toy Fair 2016, they had so much stuff we had to break it up into three.

Apologies for the scratchy audio here, my microphone was beginning to die here, so I have tweaked the audio as much as possible to make it easier on your ears.

Narrated by Zach Oat, this first video features toys, statues and other collectibles of Gotham, iZombie, The X-Files, TMNT minimates, action figures of The Muppets, and a variety of merchandise from Batman: The Animated Series.

In part two, we see more from DST, including their latest merchandise from The Justice League, Star Trek (including some new ships and figures like KHAAAAAANNN!!!!), and Ghostbusters.

And finally, the third video features the new statues from Marvel Comics, including the new female Thor and Lady Deadpool, plus Spiderman, Captain Marvel, The Incredible Hulk, and Deadpool. More Marvel Minimates are also coming on the way, with plenty of love for the X-Men and Spiderman. DST also showed off their new vinimates, larger-scale minimate figures in dramatic poses, with the first line including The X-Files, Ghostbusters, Nightmare before Christmas, Aliens and Predator.

Speaking of Aliens, check out the new minimates and vehicles from Aliens at the end of the video.

Not shown in the video (because photography of them was prohibited) were prototypes from Diamond’s upcoming Quentin Tarantino toy properties, including Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction.

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. Plus, check out the huge new Batwing which has to be seen to be believed!

NY Toy Fair 2016: McFarlane Toys video tour – The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Spawn

NY Toy Fair is almost at a close, and our massive video coverage continues as we look at the latest toys, statues, and construction sets from an original trendsetter in the high-end action figure world, McFarlane Toys!

The Toddfather himself, Todd McFarlane, gave us a walking tour of the booth. We get a glimpse at their new figures from Assassin’s Creed, The Walking Dead, NBA and NFL, and HALO line. Unfortunately, due to an issue with my microphone (AKA it’s eventual death during this event), a good portion of the interview was lost due to that snafu. This was the only section I was able to recover, so please excuse the occasional audio issue in this video.

With so many items from The Walking Dead, we had to give it a video all to itself. This highlight reel checks out their upcoming figures, statues and construction sets from the hit show on AMC, along with a new item from Fear the Walking Dead. Best of all, the Negan statue gets a spotlight and we get up close and personal with the Daryl Dixon statue, which is so new that it is not even painted yet and still has a long way to go before being finalized, according to Todd himself. Daryl has never looked better, and this is going to be tough to pass up for any serious TWD collector.

In this video, we get an overview of some of the awesome stuff in the public booth like their Game of Thrones construction sets as well as the latest Spawn statues, plus some secrets that were only accessible in the press area like their newest Game of Thrones and Five Nights at Freddy’s construction sets, their new anime line, and some additional Walking Dead products, including collectible mini-figures.

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: Banpresto Dragon Ball Z & One Piece statues – VIDEO

As part of Bandai’s booth at NY Toy Fair 2016, we got a tour of the latest offerings from Banpresto, who have brought Japanese statues and claw machine prizes into the American market with great success.

This year, Banpresto is bringing out their Manga Dimensions line, which will be starting with figures of Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta in Super Saiyan form, along with Naruto as part of the initial launch. Banpresto is also starting their Master Stars Piece line, where the top Japanese sculptors compete to have their version of famous anime characters become part of this tremendous line. They are also unveiling their World Collective Figure line, or WCF line, which includes Dragon Ball Z and One Piece mini-figurines that will ultimately include every character ever in those two shows.

There is plenty more to see in this video, so if you are a fan of DBZ, Naruto, or One Piece, you need to give this video a watch!

NY Toy Fair 2016: ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot figures & proton pack – VIDEO

Whether you like it or not, the reboot for “Ghostbusters” is on its way later this summer, and Mattel and Matty Collector are gearing up for what they hope to be a big hit with their toys. During the Matty Collector event, press got their first look at the new action figures of the four busters, along with a six-inch version of the Staypuft marshmallow man, a winged ghost monster named Mayhem, and the key villain in the film, Rowan, who looks a heck of a lot like the “no ghost” logo minus the red circle. Looks like we got some more plot info at this event along with a glimpse of the ladies in their jumpsuits and packs.

The following day, we got a tour of the Mattel booth which had a few other items from the film, including the mini-ghosts and most importantly – the new proton pack accessory! Not only do we get to see what the back of the pack looks like on the figures, we also see what kids (and some adults) might be wearing when they start pretending to be GB’s again! No word on whether we will see a classic style pack, but we can only hope that if this line does well enough, perhaps Mattel will consider a line of accessories for the original movie that is not a high-priced adult collectible.

NY Toy Fair 2016: IAMElemental Action Figures Series 2 with Julie Kerwin – VIDEO

During NY Toy Fair 2016, we caught up with Julie Kerwin, the mastermind behind the IAMElemental line of female action figures. Brought on by a desire to produce action figures that portrayed women in a positive light, Julie unleashed the first series last year and is now onto the second wave, with “Wisdom” being the core theme.

We spoke with Julie about the second series of these toys, the future of the line, the reasons for making them, and the reception they have had since day one.

The second wave will be seeing many improvements over their first line, with more detailed sculpting, and the elimination of blind bags and implementation of blister packs so you can see which figure you are getting before you buy it. More six-inch figures will be on the way as well, so expect news about that as we get closer to NYCC 2016.

Mattel is more than ready for DC’s summer blockbuster, “Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice”, and at Toy Fair 2016 showed off toys and dolls from the film.

As part of the six-inch line, we will see versions of the titular characters, along with Wonder Woman, Aqua Man, and two other versions of Batman – armored Batman, and the desert-style Batman. The film will also be getting the Barbie treatment, with Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman all getting dolls. Lastly, 12-inch figures with limited articulation will also be available of the DC trinity.

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.
