TOY FAIR 2014: Kidrobot DC Comics Labbits & Mini Figures

This year at Toy Fair, Kidrobot announced that the DC Comics universe would be added to their line of toys.  So far we've in love the with oversized Joker Labbit which has a flower dangling from its mouth.  As for the blind box mini Labbits, we saw Batman, Aquaman, Bane, Green Lantern, Red Hood, Flash, Superman, Swamp Thing, Hawk Man, and Cyborg.  Another line of mini figures of the popular DC characters will also be released and at Toy Fair Kidrobot previewed graphics of (Suicide Squad) Harley Tell Me More!
TOY FAIR 2014: DC Collectibles LI’L GOTHAM Figures

TOY FAIR 2014: DC Collectibles LI’L GOTHAM Figures

One of our favorite announcements pre-Toy Fair (but we previewed the figures there) is the line of figures based on Dustin Nguyen's Li'l Gotham.  Li'l Gotham has been one of my favorite comics to have debuted in 2013 and it's one of few that I've kept up to date with on a monthly basis.  Obviously the Harley Quinn figure is our favorite (she also comes with the most accessories, including an adorable mini Joker!), but the Joker and Robin figures are lovely as well.  The Batman is a little bit Tell Me More!

TOY FAIR 2014: Funko BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Pop Vinyl Figures

Funko previewed the upcoming line of Buffy the Vampire Slayer figures this week at Toy Fair.  At the show we saw completed versions of Buffy, vampire Spike, Angel and Willow.  Angel looks rather nondescript, but the other figures capture the likeness of the characters.  Upon looking through the Funko catalog, we also saw that Oz, a Gentleman, and a non-vampire version of Spike are also expected to debut.  Looks like Xander, Anya and Giles didn't make the cut in this wave, but it gives us hope Tell Me More!
