The selection includes:
Femme Fatales Superman: The Animated Series S...

Let the video games begin: NECA brought a plethora of video game-released collectibles to Toy Fair, in addition to its usual assortment. This included NES decos for some of its previously released figures.
Highlights included an awesome NES Godzilla, Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm characters, LBP Sackboys, and so much more.
I recently spoke with Zach over at Diamond Select Toys to answer some questions that I'm sure many of you have been wondering about since seeing the company's spectacular Toy Fair display. In the process, I also received better images of the Femme Fatales Cassie Hack and Batgirl (classic Batman tv series) statue.
Here's what I learned:
The Ghostbusters Select figures will each come with a piece of a rooftop diorama. The other accessories are thus far unconfirmed. When asked, Zach also stated that "individual one-scene ghosts are not the focus of the line, not sure we'll see a lot of those."
DST hasn't announced plans to make Ghostbusters prop replicas.
The white Cthulhu vinyl bank is apparently a glow-in-the-dark item (which should be really awesome!). There are currently no release details.
DST will not be making any action figures or Minimates for either Batman: The Animated Series or Justice League Unlimited. The company will only be making busts, statues, banks, bottle openers and cookie jars.
While I'm a little disappointed that we might not see a lot ghosts in the Ghostbusters Select line, the rooftop diorama (from the confrontation with Gozer) sounds like an awesome extra. Likewise, the idea of a glow-in-the-dark Cthulhu vinyl bank sounds great.
I'm also happy to see Cassie Hack up close. I wasn't aware of the character until recently, but the comic seems to have an interesting concept and the Femme Fantales Cassie Hack looks fantastic. Likewise, the Yvonne Craig Batgirl statue also looks cool (and she will be getting a bust as well).
Funko is set to re-release many of its popular older Pop!s, starting with Slave Leia (and the previously announced Jedi Luke).
The decision was said to be made in regards to the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. The re-released figures will come in new packaging (to differentiate itself from the originals). Interestingly, it looks like the packaging layout itself was re-used (including the figure number), but it's now just in a black deco (with a silver box at the bottom).
This series has been dubbed, "Star Wars Vaulted," presumably as a reference to Disney's practice of discontinuing the sale of its films to maintain their value. At any rate, it's a great opportunity if you missed one of these figures the figure time around and don't want to overpay on the aftermarket. Hopefully we'll see it with some of the other franchises in the future.
Besides the massive amount of photos that were taken at Funko's Toy Fair booth, we also have the photos from Funko's press packet. Given the sheer volume of photos, I'm going to omit anything previously covered on Tomopop as well as a lot of the items that were on display at the booth.
There are Legacy Firefly figures, Blizzard and Frozen Mystery Minis, etc, but everything tends to get buried by Pop!s (especially because I'm less sure what's new with the Pop! line). As such, the Pop! line will be featured separately (however, we did have room for the Pocket Pop!s).
The selection includes a lot a Legacy Rocketeer, Inside Out Mystery Minis (and Fabrikations), some absolutely gross Garbage Pail Kids stuff (seriously, how was I into this as a kid?), and more.
My favorite out of the lot is probably the Blizzard Mystery Minis. While I'm not a huge Blizzard fan, it's an absolutely great-looking set with only two figures that I don't care about (an incredible ratio!). However, I'm also strangely excited for some of the Inside Out stuff.
It's hard to summarize what a delight it was to look over DST's NY Toy Fair 2015 booth for the first time. Just when you thought you were impressed or excited, there was something that almost blew that out of the water.
The selection included 6-inch Ghostbusters figures, Batman: The Animated Series busts and full statues, Nightmare Before Christmas items galore, a MS Doctor Strange, Justice League Unlimited, and more.
Iron Man 3 had a veritable smorgasbord of armors, which of course means plenty of fodder for Hot Toys' 1/6-scale line of Iron Man figures. Sideshow has recently uploaded a video of the Mark XXXVIII (38 to you non-Romans) arm...
