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

FIANLY I could get near Star Wars where the big  news is STAR WARS COMMAND, essentially a LINE OF STAR WARS TOY SOLDIERS. As in a big bag of storm troopers or whatever. I would totally love to trip over these late at night as I went to the toilet.

The other big big Star Wars news, leading into the new movie, is Star Wars Rebels, a new cartoon airing on Disney XD this fall. It’s set between episodes III and IV and follows a ragtag gang of rebels—the crew of the space ship Ghost—who fight the Empire. The main bad guy is called The Inquisitor, above. Greg Weisman is involved so that’s promising.

This new line focuses on extreme HAIR for the ponies.

Here is the best pony of all, one wearing a mustache mask, even though mustaches are so 2013.

I repeat, MY LITTLE PONY IN A MUSTACHE MASK. And high heels!

    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”.)
