Hello and welcome back to the coverage from the American International Toy Fair for 2015. I am picking up from where I left off with some more images from our very first visit to the Hasbro Showroom. Let’s go.
In my previous post, I had just begun sharing the images of the soon to come “Transformers” line of toys and I ALWAYS loved these. I’m not personally collecting them at this point in life but I still think they rock and somewhere in one of my many boxes in storage are a few dozen of the original line of toys. As Optimus Prime would say “Let’s Roll Out” and enjoy the new Hasbro Toys goodies.

We are officially full throttle with our coverage of the American International Toy Fair for 2015 and this next post is a very special one to be including for you at long last. This chapter finds us exploring the Hasbro Toys showroom which is actually offsite of the Javits Center and closer to Times Square and this would be our outlets very first time exploring the showroom.
After checking in, the attending press are led to an auditorium, lecture hall sort of space to get the low down from Hasbro Toys company reps who specialize in each and every product line. The stuff that interests me most based on the coverage we do is of course “Star Wars”, “Marvel Comics” and the “Transformers” properties. Thought tweeting, Facebooking and yes even Instagramming is welcome from the showroom, you are not permitted to record or photograph any of the presentation. Trust me it was super interesting.
After the presentation, the publicity team leads you downstairs to the showroom and its here where its a world of wonder. Everything is set up into sections with “Transformers” on one part and the “Marvel Legends” items and the like in another. I don’t think I need to explain which properties are which so let’s let the images do the talking. Enjoy. I’ll chime in if necessary.

While I had set up some great appointments for some of the companies at this years Toy Fair, I wasn’t able to get everything that I wanted to do locked in and one such company was the Bandai folks. They make a lot of the cool Godzilla and Power Rangers stuff among other things so I really wanted to explore their line. Their schedule was locked in solid so I walked around their space as they had windows with what appeared to be all of the offerings for the new season. That would have to do so here we go take a look.

Hello again. Based on the overall number of different product lines that DC Direct was offering up, I wanted to break their part of the 2015 Toy Fair presentations into two parts. This makes it easier to visually digest and I think that you will agree with me here. So let’s get back to the wonderful items that will soon be taking your hard earned dollars from you. I’ll start off with their “Superman: The Man Of Steel” and “Wonder Woman: The Art Of War” statues which are pretty bad ass.

Continuing our series of posts from the 2015 Toy Fair, I am happy to present to you the findings in the DC Direct booth. They had a wonderful assortment of action figures, busts, statues, props and even some plush items that I think many fans of these characters will enjoy for years to come. There’s a lot of photos here and I will only be “speaking” lightly so check it out.
