AwesomeToyBlog’s Top 10 Toys of Toy Fair 2014

tf14 tnI’ve been back in the AwesomeToyBlog HQ for a few days now and I’ve been thinking about the thousands of new toys I saw over the past week. The below list captures many of my favorites, I did try to have some variety here so it’s not my 10 favorite things from Hasbro. Also these items are not presented in order…I’d be hard pressed to single out my absolute favorite new item. Enjoy.

  1. Star Wars Black Series 6″ Figures – Jabba?  Speederbiker? Chewbacca?  Darth Vader?  Near perfection. I saw these figures 3 times over the course of the show and each time I was blown away by them. I’m not a huge fan of the 6″ scale, but you win this time Hasbro. You win – these are amazing.
  2. Bandai Sprukits – When I went to the Bandai booth my PR contact suggested I check these out – and I’m grateful I did (Thanks Sarah!).  I thought these model kits which build an articulated action figure were super cool.
  3. S. H. Figuarts Mario. I had already pre-ordered the figure and accessory kits before I went to toy fair, but the huge booth display really sold me on the figure.
  4. Buffy Pop! Vinyl Figures – Years ago when Pop! vinyls were just rolling, in one of my emails with Funko I asked when I could expect Buffy Pop! vinyls. I guess the answer should have been 2014. Well worth the wait.
  5. NECA’s Quarter Scale Arkham Batman – Totally gorgeous. NECA knocked him out of the park. I’ve been waffling on the quarter scale Batmen so far…this is the one that got me.
  6. Playmobil’s ‘Rock Climbers with Mountain Animals’ set – As an occasional rock climber, the moment I saw this set I had to have it. To top it off, this set includes a family of marmots. Marmots!
  7. Kill Bill figures from Diamond Select Toys. – When I saw Adam16bit on Sunday of Toy Fair he told me how cool these were, and when I saw the figures on Monday, I realized how right he was. These look great! Since photography wasn’t allowed, you’ll just have to take my word for it.
  8. Twilight Zone Vintage-esque figures – Presented in the ‘Kenner’ style, but with a screen-accurate black and white twist. These looked great…and I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a sucker for black & white figures from shows that were shown in black & white.
  9. Kotobukiya’s Avengers ArtFx+ Statues – I was excited when these were teased at the 2013 Toy Fair. I thought the prototypes at SDCC looked great. Seeing the team assembled at Toy Fair 2014 was perfect. I’ll be making shelf space for these.
  10. Shockwave vinyl figure from Loyal Subjects – It’s a little cute Shockwave! What’s not to love?
