Four Horsemen on The Corps, Dinosaurs Too?

ToysVia Source Horsemen's forums: New 4H sculpted figures: The CORPS from Lanard. Lanard has been a famous supplier of plays-with toys for ages, with not-quite-My Little Pony figures and their infamous The Corps line - which may now be longer running than G.I. Joe. They're also behind last year's Kong and the surprisingly gorgeous just-released Rampage movie toy lines at Walmart stores in the USA.

Last year in the UK, they also released Jurassic Clash, a line that doesn't look all that far removed from the various Chap Mei/Animal Planet/Dino Quest toys we see. I haven't seen these in the USA yet, but if I do I'll buy some. The prices in the UK aren't terrible, so if you can't find a cheaper alternative they may be worth getting online or on vacation.

Toy Fair 2018: Hasbro and Mattel Begins

Toy FairThe coverage begins! There are so many things (and so many meetings!) that I have to be a buyer by day and blogger by night. As always, we get up what we can .

Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Generations Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Generations

We've got Generations Power of the Primes! Terrorcons and Predacons. More Prime Masters. And a few things you've seen... and notes about the 2019 line. Yes, already.

Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Cyberverse Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Cyberverse

New - Cyberverse! These Transformers bring back Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Windblade, Shockwave, Starscream, and a new Shadowstriker. This is neat - lots of action features to be had here.

Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Studio Series Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Studio Series

New - Studio Series! New sculpts, new toys, and some new-to-toy characters are coming along with redone versions of classic movie characters.

You can actually order some of these right now at Hasbro.com. When they're gone, this is it until August.

Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Bumblebee Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Bumblebee

This is just a display of Bumblebee movie toys - new movie toys were not on display for the press.

Toy Fair 2018 - Mattel - Jurassic World Toy Fair 2018 - Mattel - Jurassic World

This may be the most interesting new thing of the year, given the diverse sizes and broad offering. Next year it might be Hasbro's Power Rangers toy launch.

Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Bumblebee Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Bumblebee

We have some Marvel stuff, but not a ton.

Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Mighty Muggs Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Mighty Muggs

Toy Fair 2018: More Mattel and Funko

Toy FairThe coverage continues! More Funko and Mattel - and we've still got a bit more to share tomorrow. Also newcomer Wicked Duals.

Toy Fair 2018 - Wicked Duals Toy Fair 2018 - Wicked Duals

Wicked Duals are low-cost RPG miniatures-slash-army men. Original fantasy and sci-fi designs join horror concepts to deliver something really cool. I don't know where or when you can get them yet, but the idea is awesome. Price points are expected to be cheap - $10 or under for the largest set.

Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Robots in Disguise Toy Fair 2018 - Hasbro - Transformers Robots in Disguise

Mega Construx from Mattel has a new Halo set and some more carded figures. Hellboy. Turtles. It's neato.

Toy Fair 2018 - Mattel - Tomb Raider Toy Fair 2018 - Mattel - Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider from Mattel has a new Barbie doll.

Toy Fair 2018 - Funko - Pop! Vinyl Toy Fair 2018 - Funko - Pop! Vinyl

Toy Fair 2018: Super7

Toy FairThe coverage ends today! I had to go to bed, so we put off the final Super7 galleries to today. Tucked away in an enchanted grotto in an increasingly expanded Toy Fair in Javits Center, we saw more booths in the basement than ever before.

Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - Keshi Surprise Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - Keshi Surprise

Keshi Surprise branding will supplant M.U.S.C.L.E. this year. You'll see more multi-color/glow/glitter figures in blind boxes, rather than the flesh-toned 3-packs of previous years. (Both should continue.) No new Mega Man or Kinnikuman were shown.

Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - Transformers Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - Transformers

Transformers shows up with Keshi Surprise, shirts, glasses, pins, and even nifty big collector figures with clear chests showing their innards. Neato!

Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - Universal Monsters Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - Universal Monsters

Universal Monsters tugs at the heartstrings! Soapies are new bubble-blowing figures that are a nod to the Soakies of old. ReAction Figures you should recognize as 1980s-style 5-jointed 3 3/4-inch action figures. Candy buckets are great for trick-or-treating. They're leaning well into the classic collectibles here, so be sure to give these a look. It's a pretty good and diverse selection of this kind of stuff.

Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - Masters of the Universe Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - Masters of the Universe

Masters of the Universe continues, but you've seen a lot of this at previous shows - it's still coming and spectacular. New entries include ReAction Figures like Scare Glow and Orko, not to mention She-Ra Keshi Surprise.

Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - ReAction Figures Toy Fair 2018 - Super7 - ReAction Figures

ReAction Figures expand this year, with Planet of the Apes and its first two sequels getting even more figures. Also: Universal Monsters, Masters of the Universe, The Great Garloo, King Diamond, The Worst series 2, and oh so much more.

New Zoids Coming to Japan

ZoidsZoids WildIf you're a long-time reader (and have seen the top of this page) you know we love Zoids here. Tomy announced a new toy line and anime for Zoids Wild. A lot of links are out there, and you'll want to see:

Demonstration of Tomy's new line of Zoids toys [RAW VIDEO]
Announcements, products, slide shows (scroll to bottom for toys, thanks Philip!)
More Toy pictures
Toys in motion video
Anime announcement, commentary from The Allspark

At this time there is no known US release, but we're hoping. Last we heard a few years ago Hasbro has the rights to make (or not make) Zoids toys for the American market. When Kotobukiya started doing theirs, this is what supposedly cooled the ability for proper US distribution of those kits. I have no idea what Tomy will do for this one but I'm excited.
