Toyark Toy Fair 2015

New forum member Marvelous (who had supplied some great info to our sister site TFW2005.com) attended Toy Fair in Germany. She was kind enough to give a bit of info from Nuremberg Toy Fair 2015. Here’s what she had to say:

Jurassic World
A few Dinosaurs were shown. They have fleshwounds like the JP1 toys. Also, there is a playset including the gate, fences but sadly no building like the JP1 version.
No D-Rex (Or what it´s called now)
Also no human figures.

No word on G.I. Joe, but they tried to dodge this question, so who knows.
M.A.S.K. will come back in the near future!
Star Wars EP7 Toys were on shelf, but to hot to talk about, since Disney ist very overprotective.

Marvel:
Titans (If I remember the name correctly, I mean those 5 POA 12 inch fuglys) Hulkbuster, can fit the Iron Man Mark 43 inside.
Playsets for the smaller AOU figures (2 Inch I guess)
Recent Legends Infinite series (Avengers Odin BAF, Spider-Man) but also a single Ant-Man from the rumored series. Looks good, also a 3,75 inch version with giant winged ant to ride on in Legends Infinite style packaging.

Star Wars will join the Mashers line

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were present, but only already known stuff, since Stadlebauer distributes the line in German-speaking regions.

NECA was there, but only a small rather disappointing booth with no new figures as far as I can tell.

Lego:
Scooby Doh
4 Sets
Haunted House
Mystery Machine
Tomb of the Mummy
Lighthouse
Every set comes with a hidden treasure and a monster, which when the mask is removed, reveils the disguised person inside.

Marvel Superheroes
Already known AOU Sets
Ant-Man “Final Battle” set with a big spoiler! Includes Scott Lang/Ant-Man, a giant winged ant, the movies foe (Not Yellowjacket, according to the set!) and surprisingly oversized Lego bricks, which looked really great compared to the ant and minifigs.

Simpsons
Minifig wave 2 teased, no minifigs/sets at the show

Minecraft
4 new Sets
Netherkeep with Ghast
Monster Spawner
Village
Hut in the snow

Jurassic World
Already leaked sets were shown. No D-Rex (Again *sigh*)

Star Wars
Tydirium shuttle
Death Star final battle

Hero Factory like action figures:
Luke Skywalker (Jedi)
Darth Vader
Jango Fett
Commander Cody
Clone Wars Obi-Wan
General Grieveous (really impressive and big!)

Star Wars The Force Awakens Logo

While not on display to general attendees, Hasbro did have some Star Wars: The Force Awakens items to show at London Toy Fair 2015. Jedi News is reporting that Hasbro held a special closed door, invitation only, presentation at the event. this was only open to very large retailers, with reporters being specifically barred from entry. Those who did attend were given a Star Wars: The Force Awakens tote bag.

Not much to go on here, I know, but at least we can hope that Hasbro may show off products sometime before San Diego Comic-Con, as they will not have The Force Awakens toys at NY Toy Fair in a few weeks.
