Almost twenty years ago, Jurassic Park arrived in theaters, and ushered in a new age of cutting-edge CGI (and less-than-cutting-edge in films that weren’t as good), along with that sweet line of Kenner figures with scary sculpts, creepy pop-out flesh “wounds” and less-interesting human figures that didn’t look anything like Sam Neill or Jeff Goldblum.

Now with plans for Jurassic Park 4 under way, it’s time for new toys – and Hasbro will be bringing them to us. Read More...

Hasbro is celebrating "The Rise of Darth Vader" with its new line of "Star Wars" toys at Toy Fair complete with the transforming Anakin Skywalker to Darth Vader action figure, which sees the Jedi change into his role as the sinister Sith lord as you assemble parts of Vader's suit onto the poor, heartbroken Hayden Christensen. Also, get a look at the lightsaber that swaps colors when the Dark Side takes you over, and see what's coming up in the amazing "Star Wars Black" series in video tour of Hasbro's booth below!

At Toy Fair, Hasbro had blocky KRE-O Kirk, Spock, Scotty, and others from "Star Trek Into Darkness" on hand, including villain THE SPECIALIST? They showed off blocky version of the aforementioned characters from the upcoming flick. One of the most intriguing bits of info we got from these killer KRE-O's - aside from the lovely, glowy, effervescent LIGHTTECH on some of the vehicles - is the inclusion of Borg in the new line! Does that mean, the baddies are somehow assimilating themselves into J.J. Abrams' film? Find out in our video tour of the KRE-O booth below!

For decades, Star Wars action figures have held steady at 3 ¾ inches. But now, the just-announced Star Wars Black line will finally bring the Jedi and the Dark Side in scale with your six-inch toys.

WORLDS ARE COLLIDING.

Announced in USA Today, the new line will consist of eight figures, tentatively priced at $19.99 apiece, that will premiere later this year. The first wave of four figures is currently scheduled for early-to-mid August, and will include Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing pilot suit, R2-D2, Darth Maul and an “Imperial Sandtrooper” (we’re pretty sure they meant “Stormtrooper”).

When one little girl noticed that there were only 5 female characters in the game "Guess Who?", and 19 males, she did what any 6-year-old would do -- fire off a letter to Hasbro.

Here's the letter in full, via Jezebel:

"Dear Hasbro,

My name is R______. I am six years old. I think it's not fair to only have 5 girls in Guess Who and 19 boys. It is not only boys who are important, girls are important too. If grown ups get into thinking that girls are not important they won't give little girls much care.

Also if girls want to be a girl in Guess Who they'll always lose against a boy, and it will be harder for them to win. I am cross about that and if you don't fix it soon, my mum could throw Guess Who out.

My mum typed this message but I told her what to say."

OK folks, take this one with a grain of plastic for the time being. Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve heard that Disney acquired Lucasfilm for roughly $4 billion last week and Marvel for around the same price a few years prior. Well, we have it on good authority that serious discussions are happening at the highest levels of both Disney and Hasbro to fold the largest toy and game company on the planet into the Mouse.

From what we’re told, these are still just discussions at this point, but serious enough that something could be announced at any time and create ripples throughout the entertainment industry. The Lucasfilm acquisition has been reported as taking as few as 6 months to complete. On the other hand, Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger has until 2015 on his current contract, and he waited about 3 years in between the acquisitions of Marvel and Lucasfilm, so we may be without firm news on this for some time.
