Marvel baby plushies, now with the Silver Surfer and his tiny surf board. Is that what it's called? I'm not sure Galactus ever gave it a name. "I've built you a magic surf board, now go find me planets to eat."

Shame that Underground Toys only showed already out Doctor Who products like the Pandorica Wave of figures (Fez!Doc is perhaps the most glorious thing I have ever seen, I hope we get a series 6 doctor figure that uses the same headsculpt, just fez-less. As much as I like the standard 11 sculpt, it'd be nice to have a simley eleven figure!), and kept their new stuff like the plushies range and the early series 6 5" waves behind closed doors.

My favourite thing from Toy Fair has to be the Halo Combat Evolved Master Chief figure from McFarlane, as I loved the original 'chunky' Master Chief spartan armour. I'll definitely pick up their Halo 10th Anniversary 'Evolution of Master Chief' three-set they're going to do later this year to display with my Reach Legendary edition statue and other halo goodies! =D
