    Toy Fair 2013: Friends, Games, and More
    Hot Bionicle NewsSaturday, February 16th, 2013 at 8:59am by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    Today on the Toy Fair front we have an interesting variety - Friends, Board Games, and the LEGO Booth. An odd combination, to be sure, but there's still some cool stuff to be seen. To check out what was on display, read on!

    Friends

    Winter Sets

    It may have taken a bit to gain the recognition it deserved, but clearly Friends is here to stay. The winter wave of sets has a wide variety, from the adorable animal polybags to a magic show. Other sets include a karate class, soccer practice, rock concert, and pool. They keep the trend of bright, vibrant colors going too, making all the sets look very exciting.

    Upcoming Sets

    There's a lot more great sets coming up, including more animal polybags, a high school, advent calendar, and my personal favorite, the party boat. I'm sure a lot of people will be looking to pick up these sets once they hit store shelves.

    Toy of the Year Awards

    We reported a little while ago about LEGO bringing in quite a few awards during Toy Fair. They were proudly on display for all to see. Congrats!

    Games

    I'm not going to go into each game individually, but you can see all the images above. I really like what they're doing with the licensed Batman, Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings games - those microfigs are awesome. The Chima and Ninjago games have some nice printing on the figs as well. I feel that these little guys are helping to open up a whole new scale for builders.

    Booth

    Toy Fair 2013 Booth 01 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 02 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 11 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 03 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 04 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 05 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 06 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 07 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 08 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 09 Toy Fair 2013 Booth 10

    LEGO had quite a large booth on display. The highlights were a couple large sculptures from Friends and Chima that definitely caught the eye, especially in the early-morning sun. My favorite part was the hedgehog. Many companies that have enclosed booths don't let you see anything, but LEGO had quite a few display cases to show off some of the already-released sets from this year. It was a pretty nice touch.

    Another batch of coverage in the books. I think there's only going to be one more, so I hope you're ready for Toy Fair to wrap. Keep checking back to see it and all the latest LEGO news, here on BZPower!
