Toy Fair 2013 – Day 2 Recap – LEGO, Mattel, Bandai, Playmates, Diamond Select

We’re in the middle of Day 3 of Toy Fair pictures, but let’s turn the clock back a few hours and see what we unveiled during the hour of the wolf (sorry, a Song of Ice and Fire reference there….). Yesterday, our big galleries were for three of the biggest companies at the show – LEGO, Mattel, and Bandai, plus some Playmates and Diamond Select Toys thrown in.

From LEGO, we saw new Galaxy Force, new Lord of the Rings, more Star Wars, and the debut of The Lone Ranger. We also saw DUPLO, Creator, Castle, City, and lots more.

From Mattel, we saw Batman and DC (including the crazy 1960’s Adam West Batman inspired toys), WWE, Masters of the Universe with the awesome Castle Greyskull, and Disney, and on the doll side, we saw Barbie and Monster High. Throw in Watchmen and Max Steel, plus more, and you got a buffet of pictures to look at.

From Bandai, it’s Power Rangers, Ben 10, Pac-Man and more. From Playmates, we saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And from Diamond Select Toys, a whole host of Minimates and other cool stuff, including a Mr. Fusion prop from the Back to the Future movies.

The props from Captain America and Thor were AWESOME! I wish I had unlimited funds so I could bring some home.
