Needless Essentials Presents The Top 10 Toys & Toy Lines of 2013!!

Here is our TOP TEN TOYS and Toy lines of 2013! What a year we had and there was some killer stuff that hit. We will have several pieces of criteria in place for both the toys and toy lines. For example, how big a hit was the line at retail? Was the line collector focused or kid focused?  These are important factors to consider. Also note you can have a toy/ figure hit the top ten without the line as a whole breaking into the top 10. #1 MP Soundwave from Hasbro Toys Yeah, we all knew this bad boy was going to be top dog this year and with good reason. This MP was a must have on everyones list AND he also came with 5 cassette tapes. Now he was an exclusive and normally we do not allow exclusives but since a major retailer had him and he was non con related, he made it in.  I mean come on, 5 cassette tapes was included, how could he not make the top spot! Soundwave was indeed a fan fav and he continues to be one of the most viewed topics on the site.   #2 G.I. Joe Retaliation Eaglehawk Helicopter From Hasbro Okay, this one might make a few people mad, especially when you see who comes in at number 3. For me, this was a dream release. Hasbro did not "copy" the original part for part but they actually made the new one better in several ways.  The engine covers pop down and the blades are very easy to put in AND they fold back. I know some fans had issues with the bottom "glass" not being there but I was okay with that. I like the updated machine guns inside the copter and the cockpit was sweet. This to me, was the perfect thank you gift from Hasbro to the fans. That is why this bird made the number 2 spot.   #3 Titan Class Metroplex from Hasbro Toys    What a glorious Transformer this one turned out to be. I must admit something....I have yet to get this one. It's not from trying it's just that I have yet to score one at retail. I know I could order one and I will but I do like the hunt. This my friends is one amazing piece and I have seen him up close. I hope to have one soon but till then welcome to number 3 Metroplex! This one made collectors and kids very happy! #4 Mattel Masters of the Universe Castle Grayskull    Who says playsets are dead? According to the rabid MOTU fans they said hell no and well here you go! This piece was 100% fan supported! In laymans terms, fans had to put their money where their mouth is. This piece would not have made it if fans did not commit to buying this item. Imagine if others would take that same approach. I do not collect MOTU but I sure admire what Mattel has done for the brand. I see more successful years ahead for the might Masters. #5 Hot Toys Loki   My word.....just look at that detail. This my friends is the cream of the crop for high end 12" figures. Hot Toys made a name for themselves for the high workmanship in their collectibles. If you have yet to experience the Hot Toy's phenomenon then start with Loki. What a glorious figure this one turned out to be! Hot Toys captured the Avengers villain perfectly but I do believe he sold out. Still, if you can find one snag it NOW! #6 G.I. Joe Night Viper What can I say about this near perfect figure that has not been said before? Whenever I see the guys behind this piece I plan to thank them in person. This was my favorite G.I. Joe figure of 2013!   #7  DC Collectibles The New 52: Darkseid Deluxe Action Figure   Have you seen this guy yet? This is one giant bad a$$ action figure! DC Collectibles went all in on this release and you can clearly see that in the detail. When this guy hit the shop, he sold out instantly and it took a few months to get him back in. In fact, everytime we get him he sells out. That tells you something right there; fans love big toys and when you get them with this much detail it turns into a big win for everyone. #8 NECA Pacific Rim 7" & 18" Figure (yeah it's a two for one deal)   You take a movie that deals with giant robots fighting giant monsters and you have an instant win with fans. NECA has done a remarkable job with this line and one of the flagship pieces is Gypsy Danger. The detail, articulation and playability makes this one hell of a figure. In fact we liked it so much we could not decide which version to go with. #9 Hasbro Star Wars 6" Boba Fett   This one continues to be a pain in the rear for many collectors. If you take a new size with a new direction and throw the Fett in the mix you will drive fans mad. This is the second release for Boba as the first one was a SDCC exclusive. Do not fret though, if you missed the SDCC version this one will do just fine. I was thrilled to get this figure and I love the line. As a fan of Marvel Legends it was only time before Hasbro added that size to Star Wars. As of now, Boba is a tough find but just know he is well worth the hunt. #10 LEGO Jaba Sail Barge   Please santa, bring this one to me....I promise I was good...well good sometimes so I hope that counts! Right now this bad boy is on my list and I will own it. I have the palace and you can't have the palace without the Barge. A good friend of mine got this and he had a blast building it. You should see that display....it will bring a tear to your eye. When I saw this piece in NY I was in awe. Hopefully I will have it soon.
