2013 Toy Fair Pics: ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Thor 2′ and More Preview Their New Lines
Hasbro’s 2013 Fan Media Day at the American International Toy Fair offered first looks at some of the upcoming toy lines for movies like ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘ and ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘ to name a few. Just to give you a little taste of what to expect from the coming year (and even into next), we compiled a photo gallery of everything we got to see.
One of our favorites comes from the ‘Star Wars’ universe — an Anakin Skywalker action figure with speech and light-up blue light saber. What’s awesome about this guy (shown at the top of the gallery below) is that once you dress him up in his Darth Vader gear (spoiler alert: Anakin Skywalker eventually becomes Darth Vader), his voice changes to that iconic Vader breathing and his saber turns red. A Hasbro rep revealed that they came upon this concept after they screened ‘Star Wars’ for a group of kids and asked them about their experience. A lot of them said they were interested in Anakin’s Vader transformation, and thus, this awesome toy was born.
But even for those none-’Star Wars’ fans, we’ve got preview photos of the upcoming toy lines for ‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Thor 2,’ ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ and even one of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ figures, Rocket Raccoon. Check out all the photos below and let us know what you’re most excited about in the comments.
