Toy Fair is coming! Have a transforming girl robot.on February 7, 2011 at 11:01 am
It’s that time again! And same as last year, the Transformers Wiki is sending me and another fellow over to Times Square in New York this weekend for Hasbro’s Toy Fair 2011 Collectors Event, where we’ll be learning about G.I. Joe, Transformers, Marvel, Star Wars, and all sorts of other things. But, really, we’ll be there for the Transformers. Coming with me this year is Matthew Karpowich, otherwise known as “Monzo” on the Internet. He’s our dude who sets up this stuff, and was the guy who netted us this opportunity for the first time last year, so he’s more than earned his right to attend. Plus he’s got a mind like a steel trap. I won’t even have to pay attention.
Because Toy Fair stuff is gearing up, USA Today gives us a look at the first Transformers Prime toy, Deluxe Class Arcee! Woooooo! Man, I wasn’t sure if they were going to be able to pull these off, especially Arcee, but they really seem to have done it. I mean, I was trusting Hasbro/Tomy to be able to do so, I guess, since, well, they managed to succeed at engineering Animated-style toys, but it’s hard to truly believe until you see it.
So here we are.
UPDATE: Oh, hey, and UGO has Starscream.
UPDATE 2: And IGN has Bumblebee.
UPDATE 3: And Ain’t it Cool News has a Prime/Megs/kids giftset.
