litladventures:  Universal 2017 Toy and Lifestyle Collections

litladventures: Universal 2017 Toy and Lifestyle Collections

MUReview and the litlgeeks are lucky folks!  Thanks to our friends at fanboyfactor.com, we heard about this great event that Universal was putting on the day before Toy Fair 2017 in NYC.  We reached out to our friends at Universal and made arrangements to get to the event so that we could share it with all of you! 

Universal showed off a ton of great stuff from the upcoming Despicable Me 3, a bunch of great new Trolls movie merchandise, some outfits and pieces from the upcoming Mummy reboot, Fast and the Furious merchandise, and our favorite here at MUReview, VOLTRON!  There were tons of great activities for the litlgeeks, and we got some pictures and info to share with you for all of it.  First, check out the video for the fun the litlgeeks had there!

Despciable Me 3

Despicable Me 3 comes out in 2017.  It looks to be hilarious, and it is very well supported with toys and products for kids to carry the movie play experience into their house after they see it, or before!  From interactive Minion toys, to dancing and singing figure stand toys, and even a great Minion on a Hoverboard by WowWee!  There is also an outstanding collection of games coming for Despicable Me in 2017 as well as clothing, bags…and nail coloring…?  We are even getting a mystery box for Despicable Me 3! We are going to get more details tomorrow and some more hands on, but for now, check out the great images.  

 

Trolls

The litlgeeks are crazy about Trolls, and thankfully the toy line is going to continue to grow in 2017, new playsets, new Troll dolls, figures with hair that pulls out super long for miles (not actual miles…may vary).  Looks like we are also getting an adorable new larger format Poppy, more plush, Hasbro is doing a great job with this toy line and I’m sure we will have even more to show you after their event tomorrow!  For now, let’s see what the litlgeeks and MUReview saw.

 

Voltron

Dreamworks and Netflix have taken the Voltron brand and exploded it into the stratosphere with an absolutely amazing reboot of the show and Playmates has kicked in with stunning toys, many of which, we have already reviewed here.  Tomorrow, we hope to see new Voltron stuff, including…die cast!  Nothing new was shown at this event, but it was still great to gaze upon it and talk to the fine folks at Dreamworks.  They are very excited about the show, and “just getting started”.

 

The Fast and the Furious

The Fast and the Furious will grow it’s brand with great, fashionable clothing. Mattel is bringing F&tF cars, a massive line, and we even got a great demo of a remote control drifting, rocket firing car.  That’s in the video above!

 

The Mummy

The Mummy is coming up with a full reboot.   It looks like Funko is coming to the table with Pop!s.  Also on display, clothing and props from the film.

 

Spirit Riding Free

A new show from Dreamworks has some solid plastic in front of it.  Horses, dolls, it all looks fantastic!

 

Thank you again for inviting us down to this wonderful event Universal!  We had a blast, we learned a lot, and we are eager to hit the show floor at Toy Fair to see even more of these great brands and products up close.

litlgeeks Go To New York Comic-Con 2016

The litlgeeks love going to NYCC, this is their 3rd year going and they have more and more fun every time.  This year they made special stops at Diamond Select Toys, Uncle Milton, Marvel and DC Collectibles.  Unfortunately, thanks to the noise of the show floor and the iPhone 7’s lack of ability to work with a mic properly, we were unable to get as much video as we wanted, but they still had a wonderful trip and are thrilled to share it with you!

MUReview and litlgeeks were delighted to run into Uncle Milton at NYCC 2016.  We’ve been friends with them since our first toy fairs, and their products just keep getting better and better.

Shown at the show were updates for Force Awakens to their wall light light saber line (Rey’s saber), a Sith version of their fantastic Holocron, a beautiful new Death Star Galaxy projector (seriously, very premium product here!), and the very much can’t wait to play with it Death Star Electronics lab!

NYCC 2016: Hasbro – Twas The Night Before Party

Hasbro throws a fantastic party.  Tonight was absolutely no different.  The good folks at Litzky PR set the scene with a great venue, great location, beautiful decorations and welcoming smiles.  The rest was the product talking, and talk it did!  Hasbro was showing off some fantastic product lines, Star Wars, Marvel, Yokai Watch, Trolls, Transformers, Nerf.  It was all there, it was all fantastic, and I do not wish to keep it from you any longer….
