Toy Fair 2009: Dante's Inferno, Gears Of War & MoreLuke Plunkett2/16/09 8:30amFiled to: ToysToy FairNewsfiguresMerchStreet FighterNECAMcFarlaneHaloTop421EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThe New York Toy Fair kicked off over the weekend. And video games being big business and all, there were loads of new gaming figures on show. Loads.DANTE'S INFERNO - First up, though (and these are all courtesy of Toy News International), we'll start with perhaps the most interesting figure of the weekend. Which is this one, to the left, giving us our first good look at the protagonist from EA's upcoming take on Dante's Inferno. Reminds me of Altair...if Altair had to give up the assassin business and get by selling his body. It's due sometime later in 2009 GEARS OF WAR 2 - Three new Gears of War 2 figures were on show: a Locust flamethrower, your trusty robot companion Jack and a Ticker. A surprisingly cute, buck-toothed Ticker. These guys (along with the Boomer, which wasn't pictured) will all be out later this year. GUITAR HERO - God knows who these are intended for. They're 3-inch cartoon figures for Guitar Hero, but look more like something you'd buy from a dollar store. Seriously, Activision, McFarlane, give up on this crap already. STREET FIGHTER - Now we're talking. The Akuma looks frightfully accurate, and the Guile, delightfully brutish, but this second wave - following up from the Ryu, Ken and Crimson Viper annouced earlier - is dominated by Chun-Li's thighs. Look at them! Kristin Kreuk, look at them!
