Every year Target puts out an aisle of under $10 “stocking stuffer” type gifts and toys.   In the last few years they have also been getting some exclusives.  Most stores have done their resets now so we know what is available for 2012.  We knew there would be a 4″ “holiday” Batman figure, a sort…

Many Target stores have reset their flex area from “Back To School” to their new Halloween set up.  That means new toys and sometimes even exclusives.  There are several new collectibles in the display that toy fans might be interested in this year. Mattel has repainted one of their 4″ Dark Knight Rises Batman figures…

Just a reminder that today, Sunday May 27th is the street date for both Mattel’s ‘Dark Knight Rises line (as well as their Batman Power Attack line) and Hasbro’s The Amazing Spider-Man lines. Not all retailers have paid attention to the street date. Many TRU stores started putting product out earlier this week, while some…

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few weeks it’s been hard to miss the massive displays for “the Avengers” products in the big box retailers.  But I thought it might be fun for our international readers to see some of these displays too.   I really like the light up feature…

20120205-0039201.jpg I’ve known for a while that there is a shady “collector” that has been buying stuff at my local Target, opening it and returning it with different figures. They have been laying low for awhile. I hadn’t seen their handy work for about a month when he had returned a ‘Real Steel’ figure in a…

It’s Green Lantern week!   Sunday May 1st is the release date for Mattel’s Green Lantern movie product.  From what I have seen and what I have read some stores were more ready than others.Target seems to have been the least prepaired.  We’ll have more spotlights on the new GL products this week on AFi….

This is AFi’s first post-Toy Fair Q&A.  ToyGuru did an amazing job answering fans’ questions at the Mattel collector press event at Toy Fair last month, but there are always a few lingering questions.  That’s where you come in!
