The 2013 International Toy Fair brought the Cool Toy Review team back to New York City to give you the complete rundown on all the major licensees of action figures and all-round cool toys. Just like last year, you can find all the Star Wars coverage on Rebelscum.


ACTIVISION

Activision / Skylanders Booth
One of the highlights of our day was getting to attend a sneak-peek showing of the upcoming Skylanders Swap Force video game, where we were able to get all of the key features and additional information for Activisions' latest video game, scheduled to see a release in Fall 2013.


BLUEFIN DISTRIBUTION

BRIDGE DIRECT

The Bridge Direct's The Hobbit Display
As our 2013 International Toy Fair coverage continues we head over to one of the show rooms we were most anxious to see, and we were not disappointed! Follow this link to check out the new figures in The Bridge Direct's Hobbit action figure collection and stay tuned for additional galleries showing off their other products. They confessed to us that they have the rights to produce figures from The Lord Of The Rings, and if The Hobbit continues to preform well, we will see the line continue past the new films to give us a much more expansive collection of Middle Earth toys! As you can guess, we are totally in love with this collection. Let us know what you think of this line of toys.


Introducing The Bridge Direct's Pinkie Cooper
As our 2013 International Toy Fair coverage continues, we take a peek at The Bridge Direct's next success story, to give you your first look at the Pinkie Cooper doll collection. This new line designed by Bratz creator Carter Bryant, is sure to be well received by both little girls and collectors.

We continue our 2013 International Toy Fair coverage with another gallery from The Bridge Direct showroom, which includes additional images showing off Pinkie Cooper's interchangeable hair (ears?) feature, as well as everything not yet shown of their other products.
