Toy Industry News

The NPD Group report that toy sales within the UK dropped by 2.8% in 2017 pointing at Brexit, under-performing licenses and issues around counterfeit toys as the primary causes. Total revenues for the year are reported as being £3.4 billion meaning that despite the decline the UK is still positioned as the largest market in Europe with three years of growth between 2014 and 2016.

Natasha Crookes, director of public affairs and communications for the BTHA stated that "the increasing breadth and depth of counterfeit toys is a real concern, with over £400 million worth of sales being lost to the industry, as well as the cost to companies from the theft of innovative design".

When asked to comment on the growing UK Collectable market Ms Crookes commented that they were "an unstoppable force within the industry". Figures show that the sector grew by 17%, dominated by Fingerlings, with the category now making up 9% of the overall value and 19% of all units sold. Frederique Tutt, global toy analyst for the NPD Group added that they "have seen significant year on year growth" in Collectables.

Doll play-sets, pre-school figures and action figures also all saw strong 2017 sales so it was not all doom and gloom outside of the collectable sector.

Toy Industry News

Well its been over a week since the British Toy Fair 2008 took place and what a toy fair it was. As we previously reported, Transformers won the best film license of 2007, the Movie Legends was the number 1 selling Action Figure within the UK, and a lot of new and some previously unseen items were displayed at the event. Now, with a big thanks to Minion, we can bring you information on exactly what was shown off at the event by Hasbro UK. Photos were not allowed at the event, so you'll have to wait for the US toy fair for those to be leaked out, but here's the good stuff.

Transformers Animated

Bulkhead was shown in three sizes. Deluxe, Voyager and Leader class. The leader size had a large jetpack with four wing blades coming out.

Optimus Prime was also shown in the same three sizes.

The voyager scale Megatron was on display along with what was probably the leader class, due to its size, helicopter version which had a cannon on the underneath of the cockpit. Minion asked the Hasbro representative who is was and she confirmed it was Megatron. It reminded him of the Miles Mayhem chopper in MASK.

Transformers Animated Fast Action Battlers were on display, though the line has officially bene renamed, only Minion can not recall exactly what to. They now have electronics and sounds as well as the pull back action and pop-out features. Three figures were on display, though Bumblebee is the only one he can recall at this time.

Jazz was also shown off in vehicle mode looking very sweet and G1 like (colour wise).

Other Animated figures were also on display, but nothing else was new as was the packaging.

Transformers Movie

Hasbro confirmed that the Transformers Movie line will run, within the UK, up to the launch of Transformers Animated, at which point it will be phased out. The Robot Heroes Optimus Prime / Bonecrusher 2-pack was part of the display.

Transformers Universe Classics AKA Classics 2.0

Sunstreaker, Prowl, Onslaught and Powerglide were all on display.

Powerglide was fully coloured and was pretty big, comparable to Jetfire. Not enough red for Minion's tastes as they made a lot of use of silver on his colouring.

Onslaught was much chunker than expected, the SWAT APC mode looked much better in person than the official images.

Sunstreaker had been over-handled by the end of the weekend and had fallen to pieces (it was a prototype being displayed).

Prowl looked great

Robot Heroes

Blitzwing and Galvatron were on display, as were a few others. They all looked great and continue the tradition of these collectable figures

Marvel Transformers

The Marvel Transformers were also on display, the first three figures being Hulk, Venom and Iron Man. Much smaller than the metamorphs and comparable to the Star Wars Transformers. Venom turns into a jeep/APC, Hulk a Tank and Iron Man a jet. They all looked pretty cool

We'd like to thank Minion for his report and hope you enjoy this awesome report of the 2008 British Toy Fair. We'd like to thank you in advance for linking to this article rather than copying its contents

Toy Industry News The British Toy and Hobby Association has announced today, that the floor space for Toy Fair 2007 has fully sold out, with the last place being filled this morning, eaxctly nine weeks before the show opens. The British Toy fair is a trade only event, at which Hasbro will no doubt be showing off the Transformers Classic figures, the Movie preview toys and, perhaps, the movie line itself. However as previous B.T.Fs have shown, the UK release plans
that the Hasbro sales representives mention at the show do not always pan out. At previous event certain Alternator released and plans were made to retailers which never saw the light of day.
