As much as we at Gnerd love the Javits center, we can't always make it to the various geek conventions that grace it's hallowed halls. So here's a round-up of Toy Fair 2008 photos from various sites around the net; each photo links back to the original sources, so if you see something you like, there's more where that came from. The above Obi Wan maquette is by Gentle Giant, via good ol' Rebelscum. Interesting how cartoon Obi Wan looks a bit like both Ewan McGregor and Alec Guinness. Or maybe I'm seeing things.
Marvel, Heroes, Smallville, Star Trek, Star Wars, and Indy after the jump...
The Smallvillve Justice League! I don't know about Clark's face sculpt, but they do look neat as a set. Though I hope they can hold their cowls in their hands, they look kind of sad lying on the ground like that.
A Gul Dukat Minimate?! My birthday wish came true! If your'e a trek fan hit the picture link, this is just the tip of the Figures.com iceberg.
Some Kingdom of the Crystal Skull figures, including Shia LeBouf in action figure form - he has truly arrived.
This is line is called Mighty Muggs, and they're pretty much everything I look for in a toy. Cute, simple, sharp, and hilarious. How fun would it be to stage a Hulk vs Thing battle with these guys? Heads will roll! The Star Wars line is equally brilliant...
I hear some people like this "Heroes" show. Tons more at Distant Creations, hit the photo link to check them out.
I guess I'm the only geek around who doesn't lose it over movie icons rendered in lego form, so here you go. Lego Indy.
These Star Wars guys have custom faces, and a lot more character than Indy. This Anakin is from the upcoming AT-TE Walker set....
A Plo Koon figure from the Republic Gunship set. Wasn't this guy supposed to be the new Boba Fett? Maybe he'll have his day in the Clone Wars cartoons.
