So over the weekend as we reported earlier was the TIA Toy Fair in NYC. Upon deeper digging its better known as the Hasbro Toy Fair, as it seems to be put on by Hasbro. There isn’t much to report on merchandise, we’ve seen most of the new products from the few images posted Saturday. But I found a large archive on the Transformer Fan Site Seibertron.com who was attending the fair Saturday Night, and gladly took plenty of shots of the MLP display (seen above). The most notable of course is the picture directly below displaying a wedding scene between Princess Cadance and Shining Armor.
There are also better close ups of the figures we saw before, including glow in the dark Zecora, Nightmare Moon and the rest. Full image gallery (again thanks to Seibertron.com) after the page break.
Also note that the deal between Hasbro and Zynga Games is for Hasbro to produce toys based on Zynga’s games (Farmville, Mafia Wars, etc). The previous article I had found on the subject had mentioned Zynga producing games based on Hasbro’s board games (Monopoly, Battleshit, everything that belongs to Milton Bradley). According to the one article that I am reading, it makes no mention of this. So its safe to assume its their future goal to have Zynga produce the games for Facebook and other social media.
Unrelated to the toy fair but since we got a picture of the Alicorn in question, figured this would be a good place to drop this. Its a reply from Ms. Faust about Cadance and namely the fact she isn’t suppose to be an alicorn. On the plus side it seems this whole wedding story thing that is coming out does have Faust (and others who have parted from the show)’s finger in it.
Also unrelated to the toy fair, but related to MLP merchandise was this video someone shared with a bunch of us. Its “Twilight Sparkle Purse Set” where they’ve basically turned Twilight into a bimbo. It has a magic wand that you press and it sparkles and Twilight says things…things you wouldn’t image Twilight saying. (Example: I love having my hair brushed). Someone check the calendar, I think its the 1950s again.
