Toy Fair 2019 – DC Collectibles – Figures

Finally for DC Collectibles, we come to their action figures.  Various assortments will be available this year, including DC Essentials featuring comic book styling of your favorite heroes and villians; DC Artists’ Alley, which contains vinyl figures of heroes and villians designed by top artists. But my favorite is the DC The Animated Series line which creates new figures of characters based on the designs and styles of the Bruce Timm designed animated shows.  I loved “Batman the Animated Series” and “Justice League/Justice League International”.  These designs have a special spot in my heart.  I love these.

Toy Fair 2019 – Hasbro – Power Rangers

When word came out that Hasbro had bought the Power Rangers line from Saban, you could hear the collective gasp on the Internet.  This was a big move for Hasbro.  And they are fully committed to bring a diverse set of toy lines for the Power Rangers fans. Bringing over an unseen-in-the-US series of Super Sentai, the popular Go-Busters, as “Beast Morphers” was heralded as a fantastic move.  And now we are seeing how Hasbro will support the show with toys. Fans of other Power Rangers teams need not fear, though, because the Lightning Collection will bring in characters across

Toy Fair 2019 – Hasbro Marvel – Toy Biz Retro

Oh, wow, toy collectors from the 80’s and 90’s will definitely remember the name “Toy Biz”.  These were the entry way to Marvel toys for so many of us, with their bright bold packaging and unique figure stylings.  I usually saved my money for Transformers, but I was known to bring home a Toy Biz or two in my day. Well, that day has returned, because Hasbro is bringing back Toy Biz packaging and figure look this year.  These are stunning.  These look like they stepped out of the past and into our collections.  I’m impressed, Hasbro.  Pictures by Steve
