We caught the announcements of the first Guardians of the Galaxy set and the CUUSOO Ghostbusters ECTO-1 as they hit the interwebs as Toy Fair kicked off. LEGO was kind enough to send official press releases and hi-res pics for those sets and more. Some highlights from LEGO:
THE LEGO MOVIE is currently the #1 movie in America and additionally, we announced a new set coming out in March, MetalBeard’s Sea Cow. This massive, highly detailed set will be sure to turn heads as when built, contains 2,741 pieces and even includes Emmet’s iconic double-decker couch.
The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm announced new LEGO Star Wars sets based on the upcoming Star Wars Rebels television series, launching this fall on the Disney channel. Additionally, the announcement coincides with the 15th anniversary of the LEGO Star Wars collection, the first licensed property ever to come to life in LEGO form.
This morning, the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set was unveiled for the first time. Be careful, your friends might start calling you after seeing that you have this set because of the realistic details included, like the paranormal detection equipment and proton packs!
The LEGO Group shared that they will have 3 sets based on the much anticipated movie, Guardians of the Galaxy coming out this summer. Right now we have only images and info for one of the LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy products, so please stay tuned for updates in the coming months.
Their Toy Fair event is just a couple days away (and sadly, weather may prevent me from making it this year), but Hasbro is still sharing high res photographs and product info on the Captain America: The Winter Soldier product line. Winter Soldier is the first ofthree Marvel tentpole movie releases this year, opening April 4.
We’ve now got nice clear pics of wave 2 of the Captain America Marvel Infinite Series 6-Inch Legends line (I’ll call it Cap Legends to save some stress on my keyboard) and the rest of the line, including the 3.75-inchers and role play. While most of the kid-oriented toys are of limited interest to me, I’m glad Hasbro has figured out how to leverage the Marvel movies to get us more 6-inch Legends. So far, so good!
We’ve had a couple of updates from Diamond Select Toys about their Thor: the Dark World products, but they’ve got a couple updates for the upcoming Captain America: the Winter Soldier movie. First, on the Marvel.com site, DST revealed an upcoming exclusive Winter Soldier, based on his comic book (vs. movie) look.
