The PopCult Toybox

toy-fair-2018-saturday-morningWelcome to the part of our Toy Fair coverage where we provide you with links to the best on-site coverage of the annual International Toy Fair in New York from all over the internet.

Mattel opened their booth early for major media outlets, and Cnet has a photo essay, while Reuters has video that also includes Hasbro.

Playmobil expands their licensed offerings and almost every company will stick a dinosaur into one of their toy lines to try to cash in on the Jurassic World movie coming out this year (Mattel holds the toy license for that). You can read Playmobil’s press release over at 14U.

Fansided rounds up all the news that Hasbro released in the days leading up to Toy Fair, including the wearable Infinity Gauntlet and the Deluxe co-pilot Chewbacca, which is really just a Fur-real Friend that stands upright.

Bloody Disgusting has extensive photos of NECA’s new action figure of Tim Curry as Pennywise, from the 1990 TV mini-series of Stephen King’s IT.

The next wave of McFarlane Toys Stranger Things Action Figures can be seen at Entertainment Weekly.

Also at Entertainment Weekly you will find a slideshow with photos of all the toys based on Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Finally, Toys R Us offers up a page of their sale on 2018 Toy of the Year award winners.

Check PopCult all weekend long for more updates, links, photos, videos and stories from The 2018 International Toy Fair in New York.
