Exploring Toy Fair 2016: Dark Horse and Factory Entertainment

Coming ‘atcha with a double dose of companies in this Toy Fair 2016 installment as I give a quick bunch of visuals from two other fine vendors with Dark Horse and Factory Entertainment.

You already know of Dark Horse from their incredible comics line but some folks didn’t know that they also had toys and statues and other assorted collectible. Can you imagine that? Fortunately my wanderings through Toy Fair let me put that stuff right in front of you so have your wallets ready.  These first statues are from the game “Witcher”.  I didn’t know much about it coming in but shall be looking more into it to be with the program.

Now onto some things from the “Game Of Thrones”.  This mug below is the King of the White Walkers and he is not nice at all.  Well, the statue is nice but you know that isn’t what I meant.

Some starships from the Halo game series are always a popular draw at the Dark Horse booth.

They’ve also secured a “Peanuts” license and will be issuing these Snoopy figures in blind boxes.  You do know what the blind boxes are by now I hope as I’ve discussed them quite a few times by this point in the postings.

Sorry for the back and forth but this was how the cabinets were presented.  More awesome “Game Of Thrones” coolness.

That’s all I have from Dark Horse for this years event and most of this stuff should be available by Fall for your holiday purchasing power.  Now onto the Factory Entertainment folks.

I always make it a point to see what is coming out from Factory Entertainment. They have a lot of great properties licensed and these include some Justice League figurines along with Marvel.    I don’t think I have to name a lot of these characters for you at this point considering what kind of stuff is written about in our comic book and film posts.

This massive monolith of the Justice League is based on an Alex Ross design and will be fully painted once its made available.  It looked beautiful even in its unpainted form and will run a whopping $800 to own.  These are always in a limited production run so there aren’t a whole lot of them.

Sorry for some of the glare from the glass cases.  We did as best as possible and it was not too easy.  I loved those DC Women above, especially the Harley Quinn and would not mind a set of these Avengers below now that I think of it.

The Justice League monolith piece is a follow up to one that featured The Avengers and you can see the final painted product below.  It is magnificent.  Mag-Nif-Icent.  Who wants to buy me one?  Anyone?  Hello?  Hmmmm.

We are all bricks in the wall and while that is an entirely different premise, take a look at the massive wall that the Men of the Watch maintain.  This was super cool and something i think any “Game Of Thrones” fan might enjoy.

These weapons were pretty awesome as well.  They are made from a soft material and they have sound chips in them that react to the action taken.  The sword hitting the shield is a clang and I thought that they were a lot of fun.  They are perfect for the cosplayer in you or one that you might know who needs such an implement.

That’s all I have for now, but judging by the amount of photos from a few more companies that I see in this folder for the event, there are a few more postings left to do.
