Toy Fair 2013

Every Year the New York Toy Fair always reveals a few cool treats for us horror nerds.  This year was definitely no exception with Mcfarlane Toys, Neca, Mezco, and Diamond Select all showing horror themed goodies. 

Every year websites host 1000's of photos from the event.  For those who'd rather not dig through all of the Star Wars, Masters of the Universe, and Lego stuff I decided to pull the best (in this blogger's humble opinion) offerings that are coming this year.
First up, lets take a look at what Mcfarlane's limited blu-ray case for the third season of The Walking Dead. AMC's show sort of splits genre fans, it seems like it's either a love it or hate it sort of deal.  Either way, there's no denying the coolness of this blu-ray case.  Each row has decapitated undead-heads which can be moved around to your liking, then all you have to do is fill it up with water and turn on the included led light and you can re-create your own Governor themed room.  Mcfarlane is also continuing the Walking Dead Television and comic themed lines this year with more 3 3/4th scale figures.  Nothing nearly as neat as that case though, sadly.

Next up Diamond Select is continuing their Universal Monster line with a new Creature from the Black Lagoon sculpt along with a rendition of Frankenstein's monster from the Son of Frankenstein film.  Both look great, I'll certainly be adding these to my collection.  I also except to hear some more news from them shortly as they usually have a few more figures in their lines.



Lastly we've got Neca and Mezco.  Neca promised us more Jason Voorhees this year, sadly his presence was a bit absent from their showroom.  Hopefully this will be rectified come Comic Con.  They did show a handful of Alien and Predator themed action figures which look excellent.

Though Mezco dropped the Cinema of Fear line a few years back they recently picked up the rights to the Universal Monsters brand releasing a stylized Frankenstein in 2012, this year they will continue that line with the Mummy and the Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Neca mentioned that the showroom only featured items for the first few months of 2013 so I'm sure this year will have a lot more in store!
