io9 was at Hasbro's Toy Fair showroom yesterday, getting an exclusive first look at the toymaker's upcoming Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Marvel, and Transformers lines. And no, the life-size Bumblebee in the lobby sadly won't be hitting shelves anytime soon.
What's big for Hasbro? A whole slew of Iron Man 2 toys, a new Vintage line of Star Wars figures to commemorate the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, a remodeled Cobra H.I.S.S. tank, and the release of the Transformers: War For Cybertron video game. io9 was on the scene yesterday, checking out all this resplendence in plastic.
The crown jewel of the Iron Man 2 line is the remote-controlled Iron Man armor. It can walk, talk, shoot repulsors, charm the pants off of models, and scare the bejeezus out of your cat.
Tony Starch, the Invincible Iron Mash.
Armani suit + one of these detachable suction-powered arc reactors = easiest Tony Stark Halloween costume ever.
No Iron Man toy line would be complete without a helmet. This one flips open.
Mickey Rourke as Whiplash.
Iron Man Operation (liver transplant not included).
The Iron Man repulsor.
A 19" light-up, talking Galactus, for all your planet-consuming needs.
An RC flying Millennium Falcon. Again, another toy that will put your cat into conniptions.
I'm not going to lie - this Firefighter Droid action figure was my favorite toy of the show.
Team-up your Cloud Car Driver with C-3PO for an adventure of mildly thrilling proportions.
General Grievous' rotating lightsaber.
Mandalorians are so in this season.
I take it back, the Star Tours action figure set might have been my fave of the day.
The giant AT-AT walker for the ESB 30th anniversary.
The RC Hailfire droid.
The electronic Boba Fett helmet.
Bounty hunter Dengar and a very dapper Han Solo. Note the Vintage Boba Fett mailaway.
The remodeled Cobra H.I.S.S. tank.
Snake Eyes and his dog Timber.
