WWE was in full strength at NY Toy Fair 2014, as we got to see the latest action figures from Mattel during their special press event.
Wrestling fans can look forward to new figures of all their favorites, both current roster and classic legends, including The Undertaker, The Ultimate Warrior, Triple H, Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Randy Orton, Curtis Axel, Big E. Langston, The New Age Outlaws, Vickie Guerrero, Brock Lesnar, Fandango, all three members of The Shield, and many more. Plus, for the first time in the line, you can get Rob Van Dam as a Classic style figure, plus the leader of the Wyatt family, Bray Wyatt!
At NY Toy Fair 2014, we were allowed into the Matty Collector press event, a closed doors affair led by Scott Neitlich, AKA Toyguru!
Scott gave us a presentation running down all of the new items planned for the first half of 2014 for all of the big Mattel and Matty Collector lines, including MOTUC, DC (including their new Super Powers line), Batman, WWE, and Monster High. What awesome things will we be getting this year? Listen to the video to find out! Yes, I said listen, since this is a 30 minute shot of Scott’s face talking, so better to treat this as a podcast while watching it.
I also asked Scott (towards the end of the vid) what the plans are for Ghostbusters, since 2014 is the big 30th anniversary, and sadly, not much new is planned other than the GB’s with removable backpacks, but I am still going to hold out hope for a Proton Pack by the end of the year.
“WWE 2K15 will be the second WWE game released by Take-Two. The company purchased the rights from THQ in early 2013. They retained long-time series developer Yukes to handle WWE 2K14. While sales figures weren’t provided for 2K14, the game was apparently successful enough for Take-Two to justify continuing the franchise.
Unlike NBA 2K14, WWE 2K14 was only released on current-gen consoles. It seems likely that the 2K15 will be available on Xbox One and PS4 as well, though.”
Take-Two will finish off their 2014 fiscal year with “Complete Edition” re-releases of Civilization V and X-COM: Enemy Unknown arriving on February 4th and March 4th, respectively, as well as collaborations with Bethesda on Borderlands 2/Dishonored and Skyrim/BioShock Infinite bundles coming on February 11.
Are you sick of awful hosts at the Academy Awards, or worse, Billy Crystal? Do you demand change? Join the movement, and help the only group worth of hosting the most prestigious award show in the film industry take over for one night – The Muppets!
In this unique ad campaign leading into the release of their new film, The Muppets have created a new twitter to help them push towards hosting the 2012 edition of The Academy Awards. Can you imagine the possibilities if this became a reality? Danny Devito will finally find a woman his size in Miss Piggy, and can finally trade up from the far more porcine Rhea Perlman.
