Iron Man 3 3'75 inch figures have been found in the wild:

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. I can't believe the Iron Man 2 line look way better than this (the first wave of those had horrific paint jobs to boot).

Also there's a rumor that TCW like of Star Wars figures will be phased out.

http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/conte ... &sid=11298

This information comes from two sources. First, the original rumor began at starwars-figuren.com. One of the people who post in that forum also posted a translation of it in English in BanthaSkull.com's forums. Special thanks to Chris Swanski at BanthaSkull.com for piecing this all together for me.

Trooper31 posted these tidbits:

“It seems that TCW is being cancelled after the upcoming Maul wave.”

“VolkerC also mentioned that Class I and II might get the axe as well.”

It’s based largely on Volker’s report which is the fifth post down here (and it’s in German):

I spoke German in a previous life. This is what he says about TCW:

“Die Clone Wars linie wird wohl eingestellt”

It’s 50% cognates and I think it means “The Clone Wars line will be entirely discontinued.”


I'm not surprised. I haven't seen a new Clone Wars figure in a year and a half since Hasbro made the switch.

TFW2005 Coverage Of Hasbro New York Toy Fair 2013 Investor Event

Hello and welcome to another TFW2005 event coverage! You are joining with us on our coverage Of Hasbro New York Toy Fair 2013 Investor Event.

First of all… the highlights:

Transformers Construct-Bots
Rebranding Transformers: Prime as Transformers: Beast Hunters
Wowsers! Beast Hunters Optimus Prime CGI Revealed
Beast Hunters Merchandise; Shoes, Bags, T-Shirts and more
Upcoming Transformers Kre-O
Transformers: Beast Hunters Bot Shots announced

AND...
Brand New Transformers TV Series Revealed


EDIT: Hey Zechs, unrelated to TF but...

New IP within My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (Rumored “Equestria Girls???”)

That brief review of what happened in 2012 was followed by what’s heading our way by John A. Frascotti; Global Chief Marketing Officer, Hasbro.

Whoa! Mr. Frascotti acknowledged “Bronies”; thanked them for being great fans. My Little Pony TV Movie announced. He also mentioned that there will be a New IP for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. This new IP is for Older Girls; Teenage and above. The name of the IP will be revealed at a special “Pink Carpet Event” at San Diego Comic Con 2013. My best guess is that this is the rumored “Equestria Girls” trademark.


The new TV series is for the Chinese market only.

Toy Fair 2013: PAC-MAN And The Ghostly Adventures From Bandai Toys

NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. and Bandai America Incorporated have joined to bring one of the most recognizable video game characters* to toy shelves this fall. A new animated series in 3D CGI animation will debut on September 7, 2013 on the Disney XD network. The toys, based on the series, will debut at the American International Toy Fair, Feb. 10 -13 at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and will be available at retail stores this fall.


Highlights in the Pac-Man toy line by Bandai are:

Pac-Panic Battle Spinners™ Action Figures -- 2 in 1 Action Figure plus Battle Spinner! Transform these awesome action figures into ultimate battling spinners! Battle with your friends in the fight for good vs. evil, just like in the animated series. And take your Pac-Panic Battle Spinners into the Pac-Panic Battle Arena (sold separately) for ultimate battling action!

Talk'n Chomp'n Pac -- Bring Pac-Man to life with this 12" Talk'n Chomp'n Feature Plush. With his signature "waka waka" chomping action, you never know what he is going to say! Watch Pac's mouth move from slow to super-fast chomping action with over 25 signature phrases and wacky sounds from the show. Time for Pac Power!

Gooage Spewing Gigantic Pac -- Gross goo & ghost eyeballs spewing action just like on the show! Drop the goo in, press down on Pac's head and check out the goo spewing action! With Gooage Spewing Gigantic Pac-Man the "grossly" adventures never end.


Image

Holy cow... is the cartoon going to be dark? Looks like Pac-Man will be spitting out those ghosts's guts after he eats them. In the game they just kind of disappear with their eyes going back to base, but this looks more visceral...

Toy Fair 13 TMNT stuff

Below are a few quoted snippets from the article.

Rising From The Sewer In All-New Ways, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Are Ready For Ninja Action

Action Figures
New waves of Basic Action Figures will be introduced throughout the year, including Leatherhead, Baxter Stockman, Cockroach Terminator, as well as Stealth Tech Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo

Deluxe Action Figures
With the ability to fling out projectiles to take out the enemy, the Flingers Deluxe Action Figures come fully equipped and ready for battle! Kids simply load the different projectiles into the backpacks of each figure, roll the figures across a hard surface and watch as the contents of their backpacks launch!

Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are always ready for a battle against Shredder and the evil Foot Clan, and now the Turtles can be thrown into the battle with the Throw N' Battle Deluxe Figures. Decked out in their night ninja outfits, the Throw N' Battle Turtles start out in stealth mode with their legs and arms folded behind their head. Give them a toss into the battle and they spring to their feet, unleash their weapons and are ready to take out Shredder and the Foot!

Classic Collection
The Classic Collection Action Figures reflect the look of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the 80's TV show.

Ooze Segment
Get ready for ultimate Ooze action with the Mutagen Ooze Action Figures! Outfitted in their Ooze Bustin' gear, the Turtles have discovered a way to safely handle the Ooze (the mysterious substance that transformed the Turtles from pets to ninjas) and fling it back at the Kraang and the many mutants.

Cruise the Ooze with the Mutagen Ooze Sewer Cruiser, a fast-floating wet ski, complete with its own slick defense system - a cooler contraption to diffuse the Ooze and ice any Kraang in pursuit.

Turtle-ize the skies with the Mutagen Ooze Drop Copter, an airborne assault helicopter, complete with twin tubs to diffuse the Ooze on the Foot Clan. Fast spinning propeller blades and a real working winch help the Turtles race to the rescue and get out of danger quickly.

Remote Control Vehicles
Drive the Turtles into their next battle with the Ninja Control Shellraiser, a full function, remote control vehicle.

Turtle Vehicles
As seen in the hit TV show, the Patrol Buggies are individually customized and ready for action! Two assortments are available; Leo and Donnie's Patrol Buggy and Mikey and Raph's Patrol Buggy.
All four vehicles can also snap together to become the ULTIMATE MEGA PATROL BUGGY! The Patrol Buggies are compatible with most of the Turtles basic action figures (sold separately).

It's triple turbo terror as the Kraang launch an aerial alien assault with the Hover Drone.

From the streets to the sewers of NYC, the Ninja AT3 vehicle is equipped to handle any terrain as the Turtles seek out and battle against the evil Foot!

Playsets
A classic theme for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and re-established in the new Nickelodeon CG-animated series, Playmates Toys has combined the compact look and feel of a pizza box with a fully featured playset in the new Anchovy Alley Pop-Up Pizza Playset.

Role Play
Now the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are available at your finger tips with the Turtle-Comm!

The transformation into a hero-in-a-half shell is not complete without having the authentic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell!

Kids can immediately transform themselves into their favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle with the Ninja Turtles Deluxe Mask Assortment!
