Gaming tends to take over things. We get video games moulding movies, video games infesting Facebook. At Toy Fair 2010, I expected to see gaming infecting and influencing toys. I did. But I also saw so many other delightful things.


If people were apprehensive about Bioshock sequels, how about Bioshock statues/toys/figures? For true believers and sceptics, here are some pics and a video I shot at Toy Fair 2010 of NECA's Bioshock line.


NECA, statue/toy-maker for grown-ups is continuing to expand its Gears of War line. At Toy Fair 2010, the company showed its next three figures. Name them all. We've got a priest and a, uh... help me out, Gears fans.

For five or so years the people at the Marshmallow Fun Company have been making increasingly-sophisticated weaponry that shoots Marshmallows. For 24 hours since Toy Fair, I've been trying to recover from what happened at the end of this video.


The Master Chief posing at Toy Fair was made up of about 500,000 Mega Bloks, a representative for the company behind the Lego-like toys told me yesterday. Behind him was Iron Man. Behind that, new Halo Mega Bloks toys.


The Fast Finger keyboard was made for people, mainly children, who are not yet comfortable with the QWERTY layout of most keyboards. It's also made for people who'd love to use just one button to type TTYL, L8R or BRB.


In a corner of Toy Fair 2010, Neca had a booth stuffed with gaming figures. One of the line's highlights is the Street Fighter IV series, some released, some upcoming, captured here in video.


Straight from the floor of Toy Fair 2010 here in New York City are the first hints of Halo Reach's toy line from the McFarlane toy company including dummy action figure boxes. Prototype Reach Warthog also included. Expected release: third quarter.
