Yesterday I became aware that Toy Fair was moved from February to September this year which means for us collectors what have we got to look forward to this year? Before all the big events in the second half of the year.
I have heard that NECA will be holding a live stream next month from Twitter user @TurtleBatPhoto Which I am guessing will showcase a lot of their upcoming products we can definitely expect to see some TMNT Universal Monsters/Classic Monsters, Back To The Future and hopefully some Alien and Predator with some nice surprises thrown in as well.
I expect Hasbro will be doing a few live stream panels showing some new products and I know next Wednesday Hasbro is hosting an Indiana Jones live stream and I expect we’ll get some Marvel Legends, Star Wars & G.I. Joe Classified streams as well in the spring. I don’t doubt the likes of Mattel, Diamond Select Toys, Jada, Jazzwares, Mezco, and import companies will do similar things to fill the void before the second half of the year rolls around.
Toy companies more than likely knew the date change months ago and have plans in place for this spring before SDCC later this year.
