Toy Fair 2014: K'NEX on Titanfall

With the release of the video game incoming, we thought it would be a great time to dive into the excellent range of construction sets K'NEX will be releasing. In my book, giant robots + aliens = awesome. Those are aliens, yea? When I see a guy with spider looking eyes, I just assume. No time to research during Toy Fair!!!!

One of the most highly anticipated video games of 2014, Titanfall™, is set to be transformed from onscreen play into the world of building sets with new licensed building toys by K’NEX. The new range will launch in the UK in autumn 2014, but visitors to the London Toy Fair gained an advanced sneak peek of the collection.

The K’NEX® Titanfall™ Building Sets come as a result of an agreement between Respawn Entertainment, creator of the game which is set to release on March 11, 2014, and K’NEX. The relationship combines the award-winning K’NEX® building system with the Titanfall World, bringing it from the digital screen to the construction aisle for the first time. With over 80 prestigious gaming awards earned before the game’s launch, Titanfall™ is full of exciting, explosive and thrilling action, and appeals to gamers of all ages. Titanfall™ will be available on Xbox 360®, Xbox One®, and PC.

We had two teams out there this year and both came across the K'NEX booth and shot up the Titanfall displays as best they could.  Kevin Stuart Flee of  H and K Photography UK nabbed these shots at UK Toy Fair...

Paul Fogarty, Managing Director of K’NEX UK comments:
“We’re delighted that the Titanfall™ Building Sets will be joining our collection, and that we are able to reveal a glimpse of them here at the London Toy Fair. The game pre-launch buzz is already generating a huge following and fans of all ages will be able to build the Titanfall Frontier in their own homes.

“As always our strong licensed portfolio continues to combine the open-ended creativity of K’NEX® with the characters that children love,” says Fogarty.

Sets in the collection by K’NEX will include popular characters such as Pilots, multiple Titans, Spectres and other key themes from the video game. Designed for builders ages 8+, the building sets will bring the fun of the game to life, and expand its appeal through a rewarding, age- appropriate K’NEX building experience.
