    Toy Fair News Roundup and Post-Mortem

    The 2015 New York Toy Fair has come and gone and I figured it would be a good idea to link to all the news in one place for anything anyone may have missed.

    Toy Fair Entrance

    All in all, I think it was a successful first time for Toys N Bricks but I definitely learned a lot about how to make the most of it and have a good long punch-list of things to remember for next year, particularly the fact that most large exhibitors require scheduling of appointments ahead of time, before the exhibition.

    For anything anyone might have missed, here are links to all the coverage articles I posted over the past week, broken out into appropriate sub-categories:

    Licensed LEGO Themes

    The licensed themes covered in the LEGO booth included Star Wars, Jurassic World, Scooby Doo, Marvel Superheroes, and DC Superheroes.

    Original LEGO Themes

    The original themes covered in the LEGO booth included Elves, Mixels, Creator, Friends, and City. Unfortunately I ran out of time to cover Ultra Agents, Binonicle, NinjaGo, or Legends of Chima.

    Clone/Other Brands

    In the clone/other category, I had the chance to check out forthcoming offerings from McFarlane Building Sets including a review of one “The Walking Dead” Collectible Figure.

    Hasbro had new products in the Kre-O range including the Kreon Battlechanger line and Kreon Warriors collectible figures – of which I received two two to review.

    I also got a chance to check out Pinblock, a new building system currently running a KickStarter campaign. I also posted a few pictures of creations I built thanks to some samples they were giving out.

    LEGO Mixels Toy Fair Report

    Along with the already-released series 4, both series 5 and 6 were on display at Toy Fair. The price for each packet remains $4.99, and Series 5 will see release in June with 6 following in October. I don’t know which names (already disclosed via Brickset after the London Toy Fair) go with which characters, neither do I know the tribe names.

    Three new Creator sets were unveiled at Toy Fair. Unfortunately I missed the price of the two larger sets, but they’re all slated to be released in August. Check them out in the forum!

    LEGO Friends Toy Fair Report

    Nine new products were on display, including this year’s Friends Advent Calendar, four “general” Friends sets, and four offerings in the “Pop Star” subtheme. All are slated for release in August 2015 save for the Advent Calendar, which I think will be available in September.

    LEGO City Toy Fair Report

    The offerings in the perennial City theme this year are subdivided into two exploration-based subthemes as well as one larger “City Square” set, similar to 2013’s “Town Square”.

    DC Superheroes Toy Fair Report

    There were two new DC Superheroes sets on display, but I only managed to get images of the larger of the two, 76035 “Jokerland”, which looks adequately hilarious! It’s basically a Joker-themed amusement park complete with murderous rides. Featuring eight minifigures, including Starfire and Beast Boy as well as Batman and Robin against the combined forces of The Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and The Penguin complete with thematic deathtraps for each villain, this is sure to be a huge hit with DC fans.
