We Took Pictures Of Everything At Toy Fair 2014 (Basically)

Toy Fair – two innocent words that simultaneously conjure up feelings of excitement and disappointment in a single moment. Excitement at all the wonderful new toys being announced; disappointment that you can’t take them home with you right away! This year’s fair was no exception – 2014 is going to be a great year for toys and collectibles. Take a look at just a small portion of what we saw at the big show this year. And by “small portion,” we mean, “97 photos.”

Man Repaints Catching Fire Katniss Barbie So It Looks Exactly Like Jennifer Lawrence

We posted the spectacular Noel Cruz’s work before. He has a knack for turning what are terribly disappointing depictions of actors’ doll counterparts and creating what could almost be a mirror image. His latest masterpiece? Jennifer Lawerence’s Katniss Everdeen. Check out a few more shots and find out how you can own it after the jump.

Jem’s Holograms Get New Collectible Dolls From Hasbro

When we first posted the new collectible Jem dolls from Hasbro and Integrity Toys, many (myself included) wondered when we’d see Shana, Aja, and Kimber. The wait is over, Series 2 features Jem’s Holograms in all their bright-haired glory! I am now hotly anticipating Series 3, which I can only guess will be the evil band and Jem adversaries, The Misfits. I wonder what Christy Marx, Jem creator and current DC Comics writer, thinks of the comeback?

Man Repaints Harry Potter, Twilight, LOTR Dolls To Spectacularly Realistic Effect

Have you ever been really excited to pick up an action figure or collectible doll only to look at the face and go, “meh?” (Except for that Tom Hiddleston/Loki doll, good god.) While the creators of these figures usually spend a lot of time coming up with something that looks similar to the actor who played the part, they’ve got nothing on Noel Cruz. He painstakingly repaints the faces of some already pricey dolls (Hot Toys, Tonner, etc.) to give them the realistic look we all wanted in the first place. If you like what you see, you can try and commission one from him but prepare yourself – 12 inch dolls start at $1000. He does a lot of pop-culture work but take a look at what he’s done with the characters from Harry Potter, Twilight, The Lord of the Rings, and more.

Can Jem and the Holograms Make A Truly Outrageous Comeback With New Dolls From Hasbro?

Jem, the larger, cooler Barbie. At least to me she was. That’s why I’m so excited for this news. Hasbro has made a deal with Integrity Toys for a modern day line of Jem and the Hologram dolls. “Inspired by the TRULY OUTRAGEOUS characters created by Hasbro over two decades ago and cherished by fans and collectors alike ever since, this nostalgic retro doll line is designed to pay homage to both the animated series and its original companion doll line, which was originally marketed from 1985 to 1987,” writes Integrity. Each doll will set you back $125 and they’ll start shipping next month. Take a look at Jerrica Benton, her alter-ego Jem, Synergy, and good ol’ purple-haired Rio (more to come down the road).
