Toy Fair 2011 Official Images From Hasbro

By Adam May — Saturday, February 12, 2011

The official Toy Fair presentation images from Hasbro have been added to our Image Bank as we work through our "on the scene shots". Some figures like Bastilla Shan were not on display, so the official image is the only way to see her. Also note that Barris Offee will have a plastic cloak, not the soft goods version shown. (The aesthetic did not quite match the look Hasbro desired.)

Toy Fair: Best In Show

By Mike — Thursday, February 17, 2011

Another cold, wintery Toy Fair is behind us, and while we understand the reasons behind having it in New York in February, there has to be some workaround where we aren't under a blizzard warning every year and don't have to explain to our spouses or significant others why Valentine's Day for a toy geek actually falls the next Saturday after Toy Fair. But we digress.
