THE BIG SHOW - Welcome to Toy Fair 2011

Wow. So, I went to Toy Fair. My story is a blog entry in and of itself, but you're probably not here for pages of witty observation. The saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words... so let me tell by show.

Some initial pictures!





Now for the bread and butter of this site: Foam shooters and other fun projectile toys!

The Hasbro/Nerf Showroom: New NERF DART TAG, a teaser for the NERF VORTEX line, and Nerf apparel were in the Nerf portion, while I saw everything from RC to BEYBLADES, GI JOE, TRANSFORMERS, STAR WARS and more!)




Prime Time Toys: (POWERSTRIKE 48, QUICKFIRE 12)



Marshmallow Fun Company (MAZOOKA EXECUTIVE MARSHMALLOW SHOOTER)



and an honorable mention to TOOBERS AND ZOTS, while not a foam dart shooter/projectile brand, definitely have a product worth looking into if you have a lot of roleplaying/cosplay elements in your games. They're a construction set of foam pieces that interlock and wrap around together to make fun shapes like hats and swords and in one case, even wings :)



Also, some interesting roleplay/game type stuff at BACKYARD SAFARI/ZILLIONS I took a look there and have some ideas :)



RAZOR SCOOTERS (@RAZORUSA) - c'mon, they're action sport toys. I had a lot of fun with their stuff!



Someone new to me, MOBO CRUISERS. Basically I saw this and went, "OMG OMG A BIG WHEEL FOR ADULTS"





MOAR TOYS/ACTION FIGURES AND ASSORTED GEEKERY! MOAR MOAR MOAR!

LEGO (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN HARRY POTTER PHARAOH'S QUEST HERO FACTORY NINJAGO):



BANDAI (OMG BEN 10 POWER RANGERS AND THUNDERCATS)



DC COMICS (Figures! BATMAN SUPERMAN WONDER WOMAN GREEN LANTERN OMGOMGOMG)


SHOCKER TOYS (TICK ANIME ONE PIECE AWESOMESAUCE)



I have a soft spot in my heart for seeing "The Maxx"

NECA TOYS (GREMLINS FRIDAY THE 13TH NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET FREDDY IGGY POP PREDATOR)



GAMEHEADS (LEFT 4 DEAD PORTAL HALFLIFE(?) TEAM FORTRESS)



PANACHE PLACE (CRYSIS 2)
