Toy Fair 2012: Avengers Cologne


Oh yes. You definitely read that right. JADS International has debuted a set of cologne scents for the Avengers and made the debut at Toy Fair 2012 in New York.

As seen above in the banner:
“Patriot Cologne, inspired by Captain America, pays homage to the confident, stand-up-to-bullies, hard-working average Joe in everyman. The cologne features hints of green lime and white pepper with finishes of dry oak wood, sandalwood and tequila.”

Read on for more of the heroic scents unveiled.

Toy Fair 2012: Mattel’s Voltron

The Voltron display was about as disappointing as the Thundercats display from Bandai. Mattel had the 5 lions from the MattyCollector.com Voltron Force subscription on display. Nothing from the new Voltron Force series was displayed aside from placards promoting the show.

Continue after the jump for a few shots of the subscription lions and pilots.

Toy Fair 2012: Playmates TMNT

Playmates has put together a surprisingly nice showing for their long time Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license. They had a basic line of figures that matches up to the new forthcoming animated series from Nickelodeon, the new owners of the franchise. They also had a collector’s line that seemed very well received. To top it all off, Playmates had a massive new sewer playset that will be a sure hit for any kids whose parents can afford it.

Toy Fair 2012: Bandai Thundercats (or lack thereof)

In a truly bizarre move, Bandai chose not to show anything new for their Thundercats line. Everything on display is either currently out at retail or soon will be and was already known. The only item I hadn’t seen before was a set of super deformed thundercats characters (pictured above). From what I can tell, though, that set is already out at retail priced at about US$27.99. Considering last year’s show was a huge debut for the line with lots of new items for this line, this is extremely disappointing.

The image in banner hails from ASMzine.com. They have a full gallery of the Thundercats display here.

Thanks to the GI Joe club, some better photos of the SDCC 2012 GIJoe/Transformers exclusive Shockwave HISS tank have surfaces revealing many of the accessories that will be coming alongside the custom vehicle. Good luck getting your hands on one of these, collectors. It is not going to be easy.
It appears the set will include the following:
HISS tank with custom Shockwave cannon turret
Destro
Constructicon colored BAT
Suitcase of cash
2 guns for Destro
2 contructicon colored weapons for the BAT
3 Energon cubes and cart to move them

Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro Media pre-show event Marvel Legends


Image from MarvelousNews.com.

Toy Fair kicked off over the weekend a day early with a media event put on by Hasbro. This gave the company a chance to present their plans for the next year or so for all of their product lines. There was so much information in the presentation that we have broken it down into smaller chunks. Here is an update on the state of the Marvel Legends line and its glorious return to retail.

Toy Fair 2012: Mattel’s MOTU Classics announcements


Mattel actually posted most of their Toy Fair 2012 news right on MattyCollector.com. This made things a little easier to transcribe for those of us giving you the armchair coverage treatment.

The big announcements were essentially the additions of Spikor and Frosta to the Club Eternia Subscription, a Snake-man troop builder 2-pack and Geoff Johns’ 30th Anniversary character, Sir Laser Lot.
Read on after the jump for more info, pictures and the ‘updated’ schedule.
