Toy Fair 2017: McFarlane Construction Takes on Rick and Morty, South Park & Steven Universe

We're roaring along with Toy fair 2017 coverage and as we begin weaving in and out of the big shows, we are joined by more and more toy hunters collecting information and delivering images that will blow the top of your toy loving head off. Today, the hunter is M@ Hawkins and the prize is McFarlane's Construction Set lineup!

One observation before we dive into the eye candy; McFarlane launched their construction line with the notion that more detailed mini figures and accessories are what the construction toy aisle was lacking and approached their Walking Dead and Game of Thrones lines with that thinking. The Five Nights at Freddy's sets employed a more classic mini figure body, most likely in keeping with the style of the characters they are based on from the video game. As we move into 2017 product, it seems the more classic mini figure body is catching on, at least when cartoon characters are the focus. Only time will tell if McFarlane will continue using the more detailed, unposable mini figures for their sets based on human characters as they move forward.


Now let's check out what's on tap for 2017! Note that these images are prototypes and place holder images for what's to come.
