Toy Fair 2015: Half Moon Bay's Doctor Who, Muppets, DC Comics & Star Wars Merch

I hate to break this to you...but I've looked around your house...your work station....your car....you don't have enough stuff. Seriously. You say you would die for the 11th Doctor, and yet I do not see decorative satchels hanging from your closet doors or Dalek mugs in your cupboards. You constantly extol the virtues of The Batman, and yet I barely see three bat symbol emblazoned items within your reach. To put it bluntly, you are a poor geek...and we have some work to do. Half Moon Bay to the rescue! UK Toy Fair is now in high gear and we'll kick things off with the STUFF of legend, ready to fill the empty gaps in your life and shout to the world..."HEY...I'm a dork. Come at me....but not in the face..."

This roundup of merchandise needs little explanation, though we will point out our favorites. Note the Superman Shower Curtain with a little face-shaped window allowing you to smile at the strangers in your bathroom while you scrub up, removing all doubt that you are, indeed, super powered. Note the Batman satchel with the 80's style logo and Japanese writing under. Someday, someone will explain to me why anything with Japanese lettering on it is instantly cooler looking. We'll also point out the wide range of DC Comics Superman and Batman items utilizing styling from Batman's 66 TV show, and comic books from the birth of each character and the 80's! Usually, I've noticed these styles get used one at a time, like last year when everyone licensed 66 Batman. It's very cool to see a range of products with the characters from different eras available at the same time.


Over at Jedi News, you'll find a full listing of all the new Star Wars items on display. Here's a sampling...

We've only just begun!! Keep watching Idle Hands for your up to the minute Toy Fair fix!
