Exploring Toy Fair 2016: McFarlane Toys, Mythic Legions and IAmElemental

Hello and welcome back to another of our Toy Fair 2016 narratives. This one is rather special to me because it features not one, not two but three different awesome companies that I browsed at this years event. Let’s start with the stuff that I caught a glimpse of at the McFarlane Toys booth.

I’ve loved McFarlane Toys since they first started releasing the action figures that let you play out the adventures of Spawn and his various adversaries.  There is a box somewhere in my collections with a few of these early action figures but they are not mint on card at all.  I needed to open these things.  Check out the new Mini Spawn.  I gotta get myself one of these.

Though I am not much for collecting the statues that get released I do love looking at them.  For me its a space issue and that I don’t have the best way to present them to those visiting my domicile.  I know friends that have set aside small room and loaded them up with shelves to best showcase this kind of stuff and I highly recommend that this wonderful Medieval Spawn be added to the collection.

Here’s a beautiful miniature setting for the “Game Of Thrones” throne room.  You gotta love that tiny Iron Throne.

Todd and the boys have also been hard at work delivering a truly jarring collectible for the seasons of “The Walking Dead”.  Isn’t it time that your video collection when “HOLY CRAP!!!”.

This Negan character from “The Walking Dead” is a whole new level of SOB according to what friends who are up on the comic series tell me.  When he finally appears on the show it seems the game will change quite dramatically.  I can hardly wait.

That is all she wrote with the McFarlane Toys visiting this year.  I didn’t manage to get a photo with the main man as I have been doing over the past few years because he was either in meetings or doing some interviews.  As I’ve said this is a business event and the work must get done.  Now over to the Four Horsemen Studios “Mythic Legions” stuff.

I really find the stuff under the Mythic Legions line to be fantastic and for those who regularly enjoy the “Dungeons and Dragons” sort of premise then these are for you for sure.  Plenty of trolls, goblins and knights of the realms to defend and conquer any kingdom.  The point to make here is that when you collect something like this, you generally go all in and only collect these based on the higher price point.

Figures that are the regular sized ones of 6″ to 8″ will run you about $35-45 bucks apiece and since they are produced in a limited run you have to act fast or risk missing out and having an incomplete set.

Four Horsemen Studios also have these cool bird warriors from a place they called “Gothitropolis” and they caught my eye last year as well.  Take a look at the latest offerings from this line.  I would collect a set of these for sure and hope that one day we see a smaller sized ones to be used against the smaller GI Joe and Star Wars figures 🙂

That’s going to do it for Four Horsemen Studios.  Now let’s glance at the stuff from IAmElemental.  Another line of figures that I love.

IAmElemental are action figures designed for young women and based on the Elemental Of Power.  The first line was called “Courage” and now they will be releasing “Wisdom”.  There are some duplicated shots here as I was assembling since I felt one might be clearer.  No worries here.  Toy Fair begins to hypnotize me after a bunch of hours.

A collectible case to store your IAmElemental Warriors.  What’s more fun than bringing your figures with you?  Not much I think.

Everyone seems to be getting into the glassware these days and the tall pint glasses remind me of the ones I used to purchase with the Marvel Super-heroes on them.  Hopefully this will help expand their brand.

There are also books to go along with the characters to help educate the playtime and give more background in the creations.

That’s a nice poster isn’t it?  I think so.  It should adorn the wall of any young lady or actually anyone who finds these wonderful warriors of interest.

That’s going to bring me to the end of this particular chapter but the website links below will bring you to even more information about these companies and I cannot encourage you to look into them enough.   Each of these providers is bringing something new and awesome to the table and I think that you will love what is coming down the pike.  I’ll be back with more stuff soon so stay tuned and thanks for reading.
