Not to beat this one topic into the ground, but we are working round the clock (on this and other jobs), getting all the pics from UK Toy Fair 2015 edited and..well..this one is a quicky! We've got some new details on the toy lineups for Jurassic World and since those fans are the loudest, and the re-tweetiest...and ask very nicely, we are happy to dive in and get whatever we can. As is the way of our people, I will now shout SPOILER WARNING as there's a certain dino described with a very interesting talent...

which we gave you a taste of HERE). Actually actually..Hasbro hasn't started their marketing for Jurassic World at all...they are just leaking...from every boat they've got it seems. As the dinosaur images creep out across the globe, eagle eyed websites pick up the meager scraps and run with it, feeding a fandom that always seems insatiable...and is only really visible (to an outsider) when the news starts to fall like rain. That's when you realize how many Jurassic Park maniacs there are out there! It's the same with My Little Pony..and Power Rangers. That's got to be my favorite part of Toy Fair time...watching all these fans come out of the woodwork to eat up every ounce of coverage as fast as we can post it. ANYWAYYYS...let's check out some upcoming Avengers and Jurassic World toys, shall we? Yes, have some!

"SpruKits lets you build your favorite hero from the spru up. Build a highly detailed figure with true to life action hero movement and articulation without paint, glue or cutting. Experience the joy of building as you snap together and assemble the pieces to build your hero and have the pride that comes with being able to say "I built.” "
Let's kick things off with a lone Jurassic World Playskool toy that just dropped into my email. The Tyrannosaurus Rex features lights and sounds...and surely a chomping action or else why bother, right? It also comes with a little hipster handler ready to lead him around and teach him about all the indie bands no one knows about. Actually..he kinda looks like Heisenberg. Take that, you fun-ruining mommies. HEISENBERG GOT A NEW JOB!!
When Funko showed off an entire wave of Big Trouble in Little China Pop! Vinyl Figures, horror fans, action movie lovers, fantasy enthusiasts and general geekdom across the planet ...well..heads exploded. Today, we get word that Funko is adding to that anticipation with a whole wave of retro looking ReAction figures!
To recap, from the POP world we will see Jack Burton, Gracie Law, Lo Pan, Rain, Thunder and Lightning. Aw...no love for the Watcher!! These will be hitting next month.
