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!)

Toyark Toy Fair 2015

Toy Fair 2015 is right around the corner. In just a few weeks Toyark.com, TFW2005.com, Tokunation.com and all of our Network sites, will be bombarding you with thousands and thousands of photos live from the show floor. This is the yearly event that will set up the rest of the years worth of products. You’ll see more reveals at Toy Fair then just about any other event (with San Diego Comic-Con being the only event to rival it).

This year should be especially interesting. We have some major event movies coming this year. There’s no doubt that both Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: the Force Awakens will have a big impact on reveals. Hasbro won’t be publicly showing any The Force Awakens toys, but that may not stop others from showing off a goody or two. These two licenses won’t be the only big reveals. Companies like Hasbro, Mattel, NECA, Mezco, Square Enix, Diamond Select Toys, Funko and more are set to have a bigger presence than ever.

After the jump, I list ten things I’m looking forward to seeing or finding out at the show. Join in on the discussion and let us know what you are looking forward to seeing.

Toy Fair 2014 Logo Small

Now that we’ve had time to digest the excitement and craziness that is Toy Fair, we want to hear what you all liked and didn’t like. What companies or products hit it out of the park? Was there a company, line or product that didn’t quite hit the mark? What was the most surprising bit of news from the event for you? If you missed any of our coverage, you can check out Every Toy Fair Link from our entire network by Clicking Here.

For me, there were a few different companies that really came out swinging. NECA, Diamond Select Toys, LEGO, and Playmates revealed some of the best new items at the show. Capo Toys’ Street Fighter Figures, and Bif Bang Pow’s lineup were some of the biggest pleasant surprises. These guys all look to be gearing up for a great 2014.

Read on to check out my thoughts, and be sure to join in on the discussion to let us know what you liked and didn’t like.

Barlowe Ggripptogg 15

During Toy Fair 2014, The Four Horsemen hosted Toypocalypse 4: FanEXtasy at Toy Tokyo in NYC. On display were figures from Gothitropolis, Mythic Legions, Outer Space Men, and Power Lords (among others). To celebrate the event, they released a cool limited edition GGRIPPTOGG figure from Power Lords. The color scheme was based on original concept art by Power Lords creator Wayne Barlowe, who was also in attendance. We missed Barlowe at the show, we were frazzled and beat after a long day at Hasbro, but he did sign the figures throughout the event. Luckily we were able to grab one of the exclusives and we’ve done up a nice gallery of the figure. Check out the shots after the break.

Keep an eye on Power Lords Return and Toyark for when additional units of this exclusive will go live on the Four Horsemen’s website.
