Feast Your Eyes on Our Humongous New York Comic Con 2014 Toy Gallery

The cosplay and the movie stars get a lot of the love when the New York Comic Con rolls into the Jacob Javitz Center but the toy barrage doesn’t get as much attention. And that’s a shame, because if you’re a toy enthusiast the event can feel like the best museum on the planet with thousands of prototypes, new products and existing toys on display behind glass to tantalize and torture because no matter how much you beg, vendors will never let you take them all home.

In the included gallery, there are 250 pictures of some of NYCC’s coolest toys. It would be impossible for me to pick a favorite, but I can tell you that both the Killer Clowns from Outer Space figs and the Chucky figs look scary as hell, Mezco‘s Batman figures are as awesome up close as they look in these pics, and NECA Toys impressed with their 1:6 scale Danny Devito Penguin, their Burt Ward Robin and the rest of their sizable case.

I can also tell you that McFarlane‘s Walking Dead line is taking a great leap forward with the upcoming RV playset and the 10″ deluxe Rick Grimes figure that I was unfortunately unable to get a good picture of since I found myself by the McFarlane booth when it was swarmed by fans who wanted to get a look at Todd McFarlane himself, who was making an appearance.

The QMx booth also drew some crowds, but I’m pretty sure that that was all about the astonishing film scale (1:124) replica of Serenity from the film of the same name and Firefly. Luckily, we got some super up-close shots of the $7,495 “toy” and a look inside its interiors, which feature miniature versions of the Firefly cast. We’ve also got some great pics of QMx’s other Firefly products, which are damn shiny.

Enough words, check out the pics!
