Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro's G.I. Joe: Retaliation Toys

Last year, Hasbro released, what has become, the "ultimate" Snake Eyes figure and it scored rather high on our Top Ten Toys List. Now, the forces of Cobra have thrown their hat in the ring with Snake Eyes' polar opposite (color-wise at least): Tomisaburo (Tommy) Arashikage a.k.a. Storm Shadow! The 30th anniversary Joe line has been a standout and we find ourselves searching the pegs at any and all stores we happen to be in that carry them. Why would we suddenly be so into G.I. Joe when we're also collecting about a million other toy lines? Because of figures like this one! Read on as we review a ninja who wears white but can still kill undetected.

Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro's Marvel Legends

The Marvel Legends reviews just keep coming, and today we're taking a look at the catalyst for the upcoming Avengers vs. X-Men crossover: Hope Summers! The time-traveling mutant savior is easily the hardest to acquire figure from Hasbro's ML Wave 1. Sure, this is partly due to her being a short-packed female figure, but it is also a testament to just how popular she has become with fans of her Marvel Comics character and the importance that's being emphasized on her character as of late. For all intents and purposes, this red-haired mutant will be the new home of the Phoenix Force; but sadly, this Hope Summers figures may have more in common with Mr. Fantastic than Jean Grey.

Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro's Marvel Legends

This spring has been Ghost Rider's time to shine with a frivolous lawsuit, a film full of Nicolas Cage-fueled insanity, and now a new figure in the first wave of Hasbro's re-launch of Marvel Legends! While the regular figure in this line is the blue-flamed Danny Ketch, we're taking a look at the variant version. Much like or review of Steve Rogers, this figure has a different paintjob than the regular Ghost Rider. He's got orange flames, a skull that looks like a Cheeto after the powder is licked off, and is orange-hued to be our own favorite Spirit of Vengeance: Johnny Blaze!

Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro's Marvel Legends Figures

As our Marvel Legends reviews roll on, Marvel Comics' favorite patriot Steve Rogers gets the spotlight! Hasbro's first wave of re-launched Marvel Legends has the Marvel Holy Trinity of Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America-- in a sense. When Steve Rogers worked his way back through time, or being dead, or whatever, he let Bucky keep the mantle of Captain America and forged on as a super soldier while using his own name and running the world's security forces. This new figure was one of our most anticipated from the new line-up but we only found the variant version on the pegs. In fact, it seems that the variant cases have been far more plentiful at retail thus far. Did this black-suited version live up to our red, white, and blue hopes and dreams? Read on to find out!

Hell, it's enough to drive us to drink! Speakin' of drinkin', read on for our full review of Tony Stark's alter ego!

A packaging mock-up for the upcoming Clue Elimination shown at Toy Fair 2012

Of all the games I was expecting to see from Hasbro at this year's Toy Fair, a dart shooting version of Clue was not among them. Color me surprised, but also color me impressed. Clue Elimination draws more inspiration from the free-form live-action game of Assassin than it does from traditional Clue, but Clue Elimination also looks quite fun.

Hasbro's Nerf line includes traditional sports balls, foam dart and disc guns, and also the Super Soaker brand, but all of them managed to receive impressive updates at this year's Toy Fair. The focus of these new products' features were either ways to play at night or ways to make blasters larger and more powerful. Either way, I can't wait to get my hands on them.

Before "The Amazing Spider-Man" swings into theaters this July, Hasbro will be making sure the toy aisles are loaded with all manner of plaything based on the film! During Toy Fair 2012, Hasbro got permission to show the 6" version of the Lizard in all his green-hued glory during their Media Event! Not relegated to only a figure, we were also treated to other toys in the line sporting his wicked visage, including a mask that can make anyone look like an unstable scientist who let their obsessions drive them over the edge! Like the current Spider-man toy line, Hasbro has directed most of this one towards the kiddos, but there are still some pieces that adults will want to grab.
