NY Toy Fair 2017

Never growing up certainly has its perks, and one of them is attending the spectacle of the NY Toy Fair. The show was evident that 2017 is going to be a fantastic year for collectibles. With licenses like Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Square Enix, Nintendo and more, there was much to see. Let’s check out some of the highlights of the show as we wrap up our visit to the year’s epic trade show.



DC stole the limelight of the show. Several vendors had DC products on display. Trying to sort through all of it was a challenge, but we’ve picked out some of the best items to look forward to.




Marvel had a strong showing at Toy Fair. Perhaps one of the most standout items on display were these figures from Neca. The Avengers: Civil War, Iron Man, and Doctor Strange ¼ scales were beautiful and finely detailed–and they’re still in development. They could be even more gorgeous when they release later this year. Decorating more of the Marvel Universe at the Toy Fair was a collection of Pop! figures from Funko.




Square Enix

Square Enix is partnering up with Play Arts to deliver some figures and plushes based on the Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and Kingdom Hearts franchises. However, they also had some Marvel figures to show off, including X-Men’s Magneto and Wolverine. Some of them are incomplete, but the amount of detail is promising, as show in the comparisons between FFVII’s Cloud & Barret and XV’s Cindy.




With the upcoming Alien: Covenant film premiering in the spring, we spotted some Alien figurines. Again, Neco had figures for display. But if that’s too dark for your Alien needs, there were some Pop! figures, too.





Nintendo Switch is right around the corner, and Pokemon is still hot from Go and Sun and Moon. Just Funky had plenty of glassware, tumblers, and assorted gear for casual use, including some Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild items. Tomy had Pokemon figures, including Eevees and legendaries from Sun and Moon and a My Friend Pikachu, which is reminiscent of Tickle Me Elmo. Good Smile had a collection of Fire Emblem and Zelda figures for show as well.


Star Wars

The force was in full effect at Tamashii Nations’ booth. Model kits and glossy figurines accompanied a set of samurai Star Wars. The “Meisho Movie Realization Art Gallery” by Takayuki Takeya was breathtaking. The refreshing takes on the franchise are available now.




It’s worth giving Lego their own corner. Their take-over of the show had a massive showing of various licenses. With the successful Lego Batman Movie, the company had lots to share. Additional Marvel and DC pieces were out, including some Guardians of the Galaxy sets. Star Wars was not to be missed here, too.
