NY COMIC CON Latest Toys Debut at NYCC
We went to NYCC 2016, and we had a blast! Here are some highlights of our day there! I wish we had more to show you, but a majority of our day was navigating crowds, waiting in lines, and chasing a curious and happy three year old!
You will find some awesome footage of upcoming toys from DC Superhero Girls Lego sets and Mattel Action Figures, as well as, Walmart Exclusive Action Figures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as their favorite WWE Wrestlers - Leonardo as John Cena, Michelangelo as Macho Man Randy Savage, Donatello as The Undertaker, and Raphael as Sting (Sting unveiled these amazing figures at the Hammerstein Ballroom panel). We had the pleasure of also viewing these babies up close at the Nickelodeon booth. They are pretty large in size, I would say about 13” or so (I really could be wrong about the size!), and will be $19.99 and sold only at Walmart - I think they are worth the price! You have WWE Hall of Famers collaborating with TMNT - it’s really a win-win situation.
Blitzway is releasing these amazing Ghostbusters sixth scale figures featuring the original Ghostbusters (ya know, from the real version!) - these figures are absolutely beautiful, so detailed, and just really made me all happy inside! The Ghostbusters figures should debut early They are also releasing the new Fight Club figures as well, but I didn’t get to see them. BOO!
Also, we spied on some awesome Mighty Morphin Power Rangers exclusives that were up for sale at NYCC, but when we got to the booth to purchase the absolutely stunning Megazord for our nephew, it was already sold out. Boo!
We also checked out the amazing art installation of massive pieces of art depicting Wonder Woman through the lens of many different artists, we viewed Classic Wonder Woman to very modern depictions of this beauteous Super-heroine. LOVE! The new movie is also coming out soon, and the trailer was awesome! There’s a snippet of footage in our video, too!
At the Hallmark booth there were so many cute Itty Bittys, but my favorite was Rainbow Brite collection — holy cow — I really love Rainbow Brite, and I am smitten over the He-Man and Jem ornaments - they are definitely gracing my Christmas tree this year! The Scooby Doo and Peanuts Itty Bittys we adorable. I asked a Hallmark rep if there were any new Cubeez in the works, and I was told, “Not yet, but they will be soon.” As ambiguous at that sounds, I am hopeful, because we love our Cubeez! However, too offset that claim, at my local Hallmark store, the owner said there hasn’t been mention of a new Cubeez line in a year - who do I trust? NYCC Hallmark Booth rep for a $1000, Alex.
