NY Toy Fair 2020: GI Joe Classified – new 6 inch action figure line revealed

A new 6 inch scale action figure line for GI Joe was announced at New York Toy Fair; GI Joe Classified. This follows the popularity of Marvel Legends and Star Wars The Black Series lines of 6 inch scale figures. Starting in the 1960s as a 12 inch scale line of toys, the franchise pivoted in the 1980s to a 3 3/4 inch scale that it has largely stuck to until today. While other lines, including Marvel Universe and Star Wars, have experimented at the smaller scale, this is the first time the franchise is trying out the 6 inch scale for its main line, though there was an attempt at a 7 inch scale for Sigma 6 (2005-2007).

The line up for the first wave includes the following:
Duke
Scarlett
Roadblock
Snake Eyes (Hasbro Pulse Exclusive)

Attendees at the NYTF panel also received an exclusive poster promoting the line with character art of the first wave and beyond.

Toy Fair 2017: Tranformers Titans Return Trypticon

The centerpiece of Hasbro’s Titans Return display at this year’s Toy Fair was the newly revealed Titans Return Trypticon.
Trypticon won a fan poll last year for the next titan class Transformers figure against the likes of Scopronok and Omega Supreme. This was the first time the full prototype has been on display and lots of news surrounding it has come out.

  • Full Tilt, the smaller Transformer that came with the original Trypticon, is included.
  • Full Tilt has a Titan Master. The Titan Master’s name is Necro.
  • Necro appears to be based on Wipe Out, an obscure character that appeared with Trypticon at one point.
  • No Electronics (the choice was to include Full Tilt instead of electronics).
  • Base mode can connect to the other bases in the line.
  • Opening the mouth reveals a ‘throat’ which will funnel a Titan Master down to Trypticon’s chest compartment.

Unicron.com got a great video interview with Hasbro designer, John Warden.

Here are the official renders of the figure from Hasbro:

         



Toy Fair 2015: Transformers Combiner Wars Devastator

TF_CW_Scrapper

The biggest news out of Toy Fair for many was the official unveiling of Combiner Wars Devastator from Hasbro’s Transformers brand. 6 Voyager sized Constructicons will combine to form one giant sized Devastator. Each of the six figures rivals the original combined Devastator’s 9 inches of height, while the new combined form stands around 18 inches tall.

TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS COMBINER WARS CONSTRUCTICON DEVASTATOR
(Ages 8 & up/Approx. Retail Price: $149.99/Available: Fall 2015)
TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS COMBINER WARS figures form some of the largest TRANSFORMERS robots ever seen, and this one tops them all. This mega-pack unites all six of the CONSTRUCTICONS in one place. Each figure is rendered in incredible detail and features impressive conversion from robot to construction vehicle and back. But that’s just the beginning the six Voyager Scale figures combine to form the ultimate DECEPTICON weapon: the mighty CONSTRUCTICON DEVASTATOR, the largest TRANSFORMERS COMBINER robot figure!

Toy Fair 2015: MOTU Classics

MOTUC_AFP_Peek-a-blue_Banner

Toy Fair 2015 brings us the first year of Masters of the Universe Classics (MOTUC) without Scott ‘ToyGuru’ Neitlich at the helm. Little if any ado was made about the 2015 Club Eternia subscription being in its last year. Surprising considering the fanfare that Mattel put out during sign ups. Nothing out of the blue was announced aside from a new 200x (6 month) subscription. Probably the biggest news was the bonus item for the newly announced sub.

Mattel had its presentation and showed off most of what we saw was leaked a few days ago. ToyGuru claimed the leak was on purpose, but I don’t think anyone actually believed him. We got our first look at the full sized, fully painted prototype of Castle Grayskull, the first three figures in the new Filmation subscription and more. Join us after the jump for lots of information and pictures!
