Loads of cool stuff is on tap, as Diamond Select previews what fans can expect from the big return to NY Toy Fair.
It has been a while since we’ve seen a Toy Fair in NYC. Namely since Toy Fair 2020, when the show was more or less the final big event before the dark times of the pandemic took hold. BrutalGamer was there covering that show, and has a full slate of posts on it, if you’d like to take a trip down memory lane. That was then though, and this is now.
And since things have cooled and time has passed, the event will join a cadre of other shows in a return to action. As goes NYC’s premier Toy Fair, that means preview of some of the hottest stuff-to-come, with tons of cool toys and collectible items aimed at 2024.
Right there with the biggest names is Diamond Select, which has cemented a spot for itself with an ever-increasing portfolio of licenses. From the looks of the teasing press release that the company just shared today too, it’s seriously loaded.
Aside from all the Marvel and Star Wars stuff, fans can look for more AEW, more Muppets, and more Lord of the Rings in the new year. That’s in addition to the likes of Rebel Moon, G.I. Joe, House of the Dragon, and plenty more. Scroll down to see the official word on what you can look forward to seeing, when Toy Fair commences this coming weekend.
