We have had already some big announcements from Mattel, HASBRO, and Playmates. There were more but these are the 3 I care about so that is what I care to listen to. The last half of 2014 and 1st half of 2015 will be a real wallet-draining time period for me, but I am alright with it based on what I have seen so far.
Mattel and the WWE have teamed up for some amazing toys and the newest WWE cast member Sting joined Hulk Hogan and Daniel Bryan at the SDCC panel to announce their toyline. It looks like we’re going to be getting some new Ultimate Warrior Figures as well. Here are some pictures from SDCC courtesy of Toynewsi.com
Hasbro announced another Spider-Man Marvel Legends wave featuring some unique figures. I guess because of movie licensing issue we may never see a Fantastic Four Wave. But they did redeem their (in my eyes) failing 3.75″ line by giving us a Jim Lee Beast, Sandman, and Bishop. They are also putting out a great 2 waves of 6″ Legends figures such as Odin, Captain Marvel, White Iron Fist, and so many more to count. Here is a video from Marvelousnews.com and some pics.
Finally my favorite announcements came from Playmates at SDCC reguarding TMNT and all things Turtle!
