Toy Fair 2017 – Mattel’s Showroom

This morning at Toy Fair, Mattel hosted a breakfast and opened up their showroom to the press. While I got a preview of Mattel’s collector’s product yesterday, today I had the chance to see the rest of their prouct offerings. Here’s a few products that particularly stood out.

One of the coolest things was the Justice League Batmobile. So cool in fact that I recorded the demo. Watch it below.

 

Beyond the Batmobile, other products of note was a Hot Wheels race track that married the Hot Wheels property with Mega Construx bricks – a brilliant idea that really allows for awesome racetrack adventures to be built. This was a seriously awesome display.

The Barbie section also had a few really cool items – the first being a display that showed the diversity that Barbie offers today between skin tones and body types. But perhaps my favorite item here were a trio of Barbies, previously in the Seattle Art Museum, wearing reproduction Yves Saint Laurent outfits. These were super cool and gorgeous one of a kind items.

There was much more of interest including Fast and Furious toys, Monster High, Imaginext and so much more. See it all in the gallery below.

Toy Fair 2017 – Mattel

Mattel hosted a special collector’s event at toy fair this evening, showcasing their latest Halo, WWE, DC Multiverse, DC Superhero Girls, Minecraft and Teen Titans product.

Of particularly interest was new product from the upcoming Wonder Woman film with both the action figures (with build-an-Ares) and Wonder Woman dolls on display. The Wonder Woman figures look fantastic.

See them, and everything else from the Collector’s showcase, in the gallery below.
