Over the last few days, we've taken a look at the latest Toy Fair offerings from Hasbro and LEGO. Today, we hit the floors around New York's Javits Center and perused the panoply of playthings on display. Here's an overview of the upcoming collectibles you may covet out of niftiness and/or sheer weirdness.
First off, here are some of the Toy Fair premieres from DC Direct. Here's the Jim Lee reinvention of the Parademon.
SThe New 52 Superman wearing his trunk-less costume.
SThe New 52 Wonder Woman.
SA Grifter maquette for your mantlepiece.
SThe Ame-Comi Harley Quinn statue, whose likeness is destined for an uncomfortable Halloween costume.
SAme-Comi Arisia, the strangest of Green Lantern's girlfriends.
SAme-Comi Brainiac, who is giving me flashbacks to Anjelica Huston in Captain EO.
SThe Before Watchmen Comedian statue, which depicts J.G. Jones' artwork.
SThe Before Watchmen Rorschach statue, which depicts Lee Bermejo's designs.
SAnd here are some Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Minimates from Diamond Direct. Appreciating the M.O.D.O.K. love.
SThe Brood versus Wolverine Minimate collection, which is pure 1980s Chris Claremont throwback.
S The Walking Dead minimate collection.
SNECA's Hunger Games action figures, which are understandable...
S The Hunger Games coffee mug, which is disturbingly milquetoast...
SAnd Hunger Games flip-flops, which are absolutely baffling.
SAnd when you put on those Hunger Games flip-flops, this Gremlins puppet begins creeping into your blind spot and massaging your toes.
SAnd speaking of tender touches, this E.T. light-up hand was made for caressing your loved ones' cheeks while they sleep.
S"Happy birthday, kids. You all got drunk E.T. action figures."
S"Except for you, son. This counts for both Christmas and birthday."
SNECA's reproduction Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device.
SSelect copies of Season 2 of The Walking Dead will come in this lovely decapitated zombie case.
SThis wasn't a toy, but I enjoyed how Kotobukiya used a frozen Han as a spokesman for their Star Wars ice cube trays.
SWe had a rundown of the new LEGO sets at Toy Fair yesterday, but this tableau of Legolas with a bisected Aragorn raised new questions.
SAnother shot of the Helm's Deep play set.
SIn August, LEGO is releasing some Jabba-themed play sets. We have the Sarlacc Pit...
S...and Jabba's Palace.
SThere's no Max Rebo figure, so no " Lapti Nek." Unacceptable.
SAnd here are some other LEGO Star Wars sets hitting stores throughout 2012, including the Darth Maul advent calendar. He's not celebrating Life Day, which means he's the same religion as Artoo.
