Toy Fair 2015

Toy Fair 2015 was not very fun to be pretty honest with you. There wasn't that much there as far as new stuff coming out. I am probably pretty biased because I cared mostly about the comic aspect of things. So, Toy Fair 2015 was at the Jacob Javits center in NYC which is where it is always held to my knowledge. The Jacob Javits center also holds New York Comic Con and is not only huge, but also clean and beautiful. It is a trade professionals only convention so you need some type of credentials to get a badge. Honestly, I feel like comic con's are more fun than Toy Fair. There are a lot more smaller booths that have products that you've never heard of. Plus like I said, I really only care about comic stuff.

So - my favorite booth there was probably Funko, I received a catalog of their 2015 releases. I'll tell you some of my favorites. They are sold separately, I'm just listing them together because they were listed together in the catalog.

- Harry Potter Set (Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Albus Dumbledore, Rubeus Hagrid, Lord Voldemort, & Serverus Snape)

- American Horror Story: Freak Show (Twisty, Elsa Mars & Ma Petite*, Pepper, Tattler Twins)
* Elsa Mars & Ma Petite will be sold together as a set

- The Flash CW (The Flash, Captain Cold)

- Arrow CW (The Hood, Oliver Queen, Deathstroke, Black Canary)

- Once Upon A Time (Emma Swan, Regina, Rumpelstiltskin, Prince Charming, Snow White, Hook)

- Orange is the New Black (Piper Chapman, Alex Vause, "Red", Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren, George "Pornstache" Mendez

Meanwhile, DC revealed a Reverse Flash ring. If you watch The Flash then you know what I mean. Harrison Wells is all evil and plugs his evil ring into another flash symbol that opens to a capsule with the evil Reverse Flash suit. There are also some other figures announced as well as a few new "Arrow" characters announced.

Another cool thing that was announced at Toy Fair was Game of Thrones Monopoly. You know what I think would be cool though? Game of Thrones Trivial Pursuit or DC Comics Trivial Pursuit, because I'm pretty sure there's already a Marvel Universe Trivial Pursuit.
