NY Toy Fair 2017 - Top 5 Things We Expect To See
RAC - Monday, January 30, 2017

With less than three weeks to go until Toy Fair, RAC and ExVee have been thinking about what we could see there. So, in the first of three articles going from most to least likely to be shown, we'll look at things we hope to be covering the weekend of the 18th of February. Keep reading to see our picks!

5. Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Bludgeon

Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Bludgeon Render - will we see the finished toy at NY Toy Fair 2017?

We all know he's coming. We've seen the renders and we've seen Blastwave, the new Autobot "prepaint" in the Combiner Force line. But we've not seen a real toy of RID Bludgeon yet, and we're very much looking forward to it. Based off his G1 Pretender shell with influences from the Revenge Of The Fallen Voyager-class toy, Bludgeon is shaping up to be one of the best-looking versions of the character from any universe.

4. Titans Return Wave Four

We've had this wave start to filter out overseas (ExVee's got the Deluxes!), and even seen a Hasbro-sanctioned review from superfan Ben Yee in the final issue of the Transformers Collector's Club newsletter, but Titans Return Wave 4 hasn't even been solicited with any domestic sellers as of this writing. With less than three weeks left to Toy Fair, it stands to reason it will be fully covered there. Pretty much everything in the wave is known, but there's still a few parts that we could stand more and better looks at before it launches.

3. The Robots In Disguise Large Combiners

The Team Bee Combiner Shown In Robots In Disguise Promotional Images. Will We See The Actual Toy At Toy Fair New York 2017?

They've been featured in ads overseas, but so far we haven't seen the actual large-scale combiners that Robots In Disguise has in store for us. Looking to be four part figures with one figure forming the legs, one for each arm, and one the body, we've got Team Bee squaring off with what looks very much to be the RID version of Menasor. We want to see more of that!

2. More of Titans Return Titan Class Trypticon

So far, we've seen a leg. One grayscale leg. It's hoped that we'll at least see an entire grayscale body this time through. Might we get as far as color? We'll see, but I have reason to doubt that we'll see a production-quality version this early (see tomorrow's Toy Fair article for more thoughts on that). But we can't imagine that Trypticon won't be represented in some way.

1. Transformers: The Last Knight Product Line, Premier Edition And Otherwise.

Transformers: The Last Knight Premier Edition Deluxe Barricade is just one of many #TF5 toys we hope to see at New York Toy Fair 2017

For one thing, I'm increasingly certain the Premier Edition is the name for the entire Generations-style line and I want to find out if I'm right. But regardless, we'll get more details on that at Toy Fair along with more - we imagine much more - of Transformers: The Last Knight. What will the rest of the line look like? What characters will we get? There's a lot of questions left to answer about the toyline for the fifth live-action Transformers movie. We've ranked this at the top because, while Generations and RID might both excite us more on a personal level, The Last Knight is where we're most likely to get surprises. And we love surprises at Toy Fair!

Business Insider reports that the letter sent to all ToysRUs employees explaining the company's current state and laying out their lack of severance has set a timetable for the closing of stores and warehouses. Though only some states have reported in, it seems that target date for the end of ToysRUs is May 14 in states ranging from Wisconsin to Hawaii. Keep reading for more details.
Ellia Kassoff of the company Strategic Marks has announced that the company's plan to revive Kay Bee Toys - once Toys R Us' largest competitor in the toy field - have been accelerated in the wake of TRU's impending closing. Kassoff seems extremely optimistic about the potential for a revived KB to take TRU's place in representing roughly 20% of all toy sales in the United States. Keep reading for more information!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid. They got a million toys at Toys R us that I can play with. I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid.

I don’t wanna grow up, cause maybe if I did, I couldn’t be a Toys R Us kid. More games, more toys, oh boy! I wanna be a Toys R Us kid!
