It was VERY strange how it was handled at Toy Fair this year. Almost every single company with a license was told they could not show it.

Mattel had Movie Masters, but we couldn't take pictures... even though WB had released images of all the figures on display. NONE of the kids line was on display.

Lego also had their sets on display but photos weren't allowed.

Mezco, Kotobukiya, Funko, NECA all have MOS licenses but were NOT allowed to show ANYTHING. Koto had their MOS statue in the back room, but couldn't show it. Mezco had to ask buyers to buy in on their MOC products by showing them black silhouettes. Funko had also shown theirs the week prior in USA Toyday, but couldn't display them.

Jakks has a 31" Superman from MOS... that they were allowed to display.

I don't get it. We've seen the costume. It's on the poster. We've seen Superman and Zod in the trailer. What's the big secret?
