First revealed at Toy Fair earlier this year, you unfortunately can’t actually buy Hasbro’s gigantic new Transformers Constructicons set yet. But there’s already a special edition version being teased for the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con.
The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen helped reinforce the idea that young women don’t have to wait for a knight in shining armour to come and rescue them; they can instead pick up a weapon and be the hero themselves. But instead of reaching for a bow and arrow, Nerf’s Rebelle line wants them to reach for its new Secret Shot that hides a four-shot blaster inside a useless, but arguably fashionable, accessory.
If the comic books and movies are any indication, the fact that anyone besides Thor can lift his mighty Mjölnir hammer is reason enough to feel pretty great about yourself. But if that just isn’t enough of an ego boost, Hasbro’s Power Hammer game will let you test your strength against some of the worst villains in the Marvel universe.
The ’80s were arguably one of the greatest decades in history to be a kid with an allowance burning a hole in your pocket, and a free afternoon to spend at a toy store. And decades later toy companies have realised that all those kids buying the wonderful toys from the ’80s are all grown up now with plenty of disposable income and a penchant for nostalgia.

Remember Skip-It, the toy kids shackled and spun around their ankles in an attempt to rack up the high score on its built-in counter? It’s back, and now packing some legitimate technology in the form of a kid-friendly wearable fitness tracker that remembers their high score, as well as other fitness-related metrics.
Once a year, toy companies from all over the world converge on New York to reveal what everyone will be fighting to buy their kids — or themselves — when the holidays roll around again. And once again we grabbed our cameras, put ourselves in the mind of a child (that was the easy part), and set out to find the most exciting new toys that will be hitting store shelves this year.
When the Transformers finally reached North America back in the ’80s, Devastator was the first set where multiple robots could join forces to assemble into an even larger figure. Except Devastator was never really that big, and while kids most didn’t care, it was a minor complaint that Hasbro has finally addressed with the new Generations Combiner Wars Devastator.
