TOY FAIR 2007
« on: December 27, 2006, 08:42 PM »
So, is 2007's Toy Fair going to be really good?  Or are all of the figures going to leak the week before making Toy Fair a bit redundant?

I'm hoping to see most, if not all of the the McQuarrie figs.  That's what I'm most excited about this year. I'm also wondering about some video game tie-in stuff that Hasbro was talking about for 07.  I'm wondering if that's happening in the fall...only time will tell!

Any thoughts?

Hasbro keeps implying stuff in Q&A's that will be let loose at Toy Fair, so you never know really...  Last year's TF wasn't stellar though so part of me figures we'll see clearer shots of all of it online first, and that what they have at TF is going to be minimal in general.

Any time to see new figures is great. It can't get here fast enough. I look forward to the vintage figures and the next couple of waves the most. Complete surprises are always good too.

VOTC III or whatever we are calling it is what I am looking forward to most.

And any other OT stuff we have not seen by then as well.

I really hope, though, that the Hasbro reps who set up the display booth take a little more time to pose the figures in a flattering way.  Sometimes it seems like they choose the worst possible way to display these!

I wouldn't count on it...  TF usually gets the schlubs, not the people who actually give a poo on the matter.  At least that's how it's been in recent years anyway.

Maybe somebody can convince them that they will sell more if they are displayed better.  Maybe it would be good for a Q & A question.  I know the VTSC Sand Person went from 2 Stars to 4 Stars after a little work with the outfit.

I am looking forward to the Wave 3 of Vintage, (Crossing fingers for a SA Snowtrooper). I also want to see the next 2 wave after Yavin at TF 2007.

I'm halfway expecting more "humor" from Hasbro on that one.

I think Hasbro realized they took a lot of flak for that stunt last year and even they should be smart enough not to pull that again.  Hopefully.  ::)

Wasn't that a Comic Con thing, where fans would be, I don't think they would waste their limited humor on buyers from Wal Mart, Target etc.  The five or six guys covering the show from various websites or magazines probably won't even rate an acknowledgement at something geared towards retailers.

I hope Hasbro reveals a surprise playset.   Not gonna happen, but I can hope.   :D

I wonder how much we will see this year at Toy Fair.  I'd love to see a surprise wave of figures that we never thought we'd get.  Maybe a battle pack or two of Cantina aliens or harder to find Jedi.  I'd love that.
