New York Toy Fair 2012 Anticipation

As most of you toy lovers are aware of  next week is the New York Toy Fair, an event that is not open to the public. At that event a lot of companies reveal the new product that they have up to a certain point. The next point in the year is usually San Diego Comic Con.

Since my love for Marvel has diminished, (mostly because I burned myself out and the increase in price) my eyes gravitate this year to McFarlane Toys Halo line.

Walgreens Exclusive JFO for starters!

For once in my life I enjoy a toy property that my brother is also into.

Most of the Marvel Universe lineup has already been revealed here and here, What I expect at the toy Fair are actual photos of prototypes. And a few more announcements to top things off.

The Avengers line looks sucky. I heard that the articulation has been greatly reduced, and according to my inside source the G-Man, Loki will be short packed (I don't know if this is the 6 inch or 3.75 inch) and the toys will be release everywhere on Monday, February 27th 2012.

I know that Halo reach will start to disappear in favor of Halo 4 toys, so I expect to see the last of the Reach line which is sad because I really liked the design of the armor. But this will also ensure that I don't remain a fan way after Reach is done as a toy line. (That depends on the armor designs of Halo 4)

I'm also looking forward to the Halo Micro Ops stuff, if we get a miniature Noble Team I will be ecstatic!
I wonder if Series7 of Halo Reach will have an unhelmeted Emile and Noble 6 or a Thom for that matter. There was a Mark V [B] in his colors released early in the line but was never labeled as Thom.

Micro Ops 1

Micro Ops 2

Fans are still waiting the release of the Falcon and being an owner of the Warthog, I hope the price is in that range. ($30 dollars).

I expect more Marvel legends figures to be announced, at least another wave. And I'm sure Hasbro will have the G.I. Joe Retaliation and Transformers Prime figures out. But I'm not a big fan of those 2 lines. I can only collect 1 line at the time. maybe when my business gets of the ground and I'm a millionaire I will get into stuff like Hot Toys.

I would be surprised if Bandai tried to bring Gundam toys and model kits back to the states. Heaven knows they have tried.

Well that's it for now. Let me know what you guys are eagerly anticipating.

See ya in the toy isles!

New Stuff For "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" Cartoon

While watching the special features on the Avengers DVD's they announced new looks and new characters for the series, which is awesome!

I like the series and the way they tackle stories for the Marvel Universe. The Ultimates line of comics did the same thing, but somehow they got it wrong. These guys got it right.

Halo: New York Toy Fair 2012

Wow! I didn't expect much from McFarlane but I am impressed. Even though my toy heart was broken by the realization that Halo Reach ends with series 6 ( I expected an unhelmeted Emile and Noble Six? in Series 7) But as long as the scale of the new stuff sticks with Reach I'll be happy. If not I hope the quality control gets better.

Here's the stuff I'm excited for!

Super Hero Squad Online Review

If you haven't gotten my open invitation to the beta, and accepted it. You're missing out on being a Marvel Super Hero. Unlike DC's MMORPG you can play as Thor, or Spider-Man if you wanted to. But lets go into the review shall we.

Size Comparison - Halo Reach Video Series

I love the Halo Reach line of figures from McFarlane Toys. I don't know why I didn't jump on the bandwagon earlier.

But I've always gotten into toy lines after or near the end of their run. I don't know why, it just is.

Top 10 Halo Reach Figures!!!

To end the year of doom 2012, I'm making this list and checking it twice.

Sadly the most you will find in stores is series 6. All these figures are awesome. EVEN THE SABRE PILOT!!! (with his obnoxious eyebrows).

So here you go, from 10 to 1...


 10. Carter:

The leader of Noble Team and one of the coolest armor designs comes in at number 10. Not because he's the worst, but because it might be too obvious if he's number 1. I love the Commando armor, the blue color and the distinctive markings.
