Toy Fair 2014 Part 1: Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, My Little Pony in a mustache and Play-Doh heat up Hasbro

I believe that is the Collector, played by Benicio Del Toro in the movie.

The Zoe Saldana likeness is not very good, otherwise these look like fine toys.

Apparently there is also a Spider-Man movie coming out. Lots of Electro themed toys. And Spiderman shooting things.

Child appropriate Hulk.

While everyone crowded around Star Wars, I checked out the Potato head line, where, for the first of about 20,000 instances, I encountered morphed “chibi” versions of well known superheroes. These are small figures of well known Marvel heroes as Potato Heads.

I forget what this line was called, but basically it was all removable parts of heroes that you could assemble into your own bootleg characters.

Attending press couldn’t wait to dip into the bucket of parts. I tried not to touch ANYTHING at Toy Fair since that’s a surefire way to get the flu. So far so good, knock wood.

Larger key art for Potato Head Spidey.

The Black Cat was part of one line, swapped out with Spider-Girl in play-sets. I think this is the first Spider-Girl action figure.

    1) The mix-and-match Marvel transporter malfunction toys:

    2) Star Wars Rebels:
    Female Mandalorian named Sabine. (Me, I thought it would have been cool if Jango Fett, and by cloning Boba, had been female. Which would have made the clone troopers female…)

    3) Oh, yeah, girls love the Secret Agent meme! My nieces took their Barbies, mixed it with my Big Jim command center airplane, and concocted a Charlie’s Angels story! It’s not too surprising… you get to be someone else, you are expert in martial arts and all sorts of other brainy things, you get to manipulate bad guys, you have a secret nobody else knows about…

    Disney, why didn’t you make a Gallagher Girls movie? (Elevator pitch: a snooty private girls school is actually a training academy for female secret agents.) At least Lionsgate is making “Heist Society”. (Go google “Ally Carter”.)
