This it folks, the end of formal Toy Fair 2015 coverage, everything I was able to capture live with my own eyes and ears, ends here. I assure you, I have saved the absolute best for last. Last year at Toy Fair, I missed my time with Zach from Diamond Select Toys and I was honestly really upset about that. Zach is one of the most passionate, knowledgeable and outright awesome people in the world of toys. He is a credit to all that Diamond Select has achieved and I really look forward to every chance I get to meet up with him and talk shop…or well, listen shop anyway! Diamond Select Toys had a ton to offer this year at toy fair, but specifically for the little ones, we are going to focus on their great Ninja Turtle and SpongeBob Squarepants Minimates!
Spongebob Squarepants, you know, the little sponge that got a fresh new movie just a few weeks ago? He’s getting his own Minimates assortment in March and 2-packs will retail for $9.99. Included in the assortment:
- SpongeBob with Sandy
- Patrick with Squidward
- Mr. Krabs with Perch Perkins
- Rare, one-per-case box set of Grandpappy Redbeard with an orange Perch Perkins!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
I hope you were all paying attention when MUReview brought you reviews of each character in the blind bagged first series of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Minimates. They are epic. Wave 2 is coming, more bust banks are coming… we even have a review of a pizza cutter waiting for the Toy Fair dust to settle so we can share it with you!
