Each year my coverage of companies on the show floor of the New York Toy Fair gets longer and longer. In this article I’ll be focusing on some of the companies producing the hottest figures and statues on the market today. There’s a lot to cover so let’s not waste time and dive right in!

Square Enix Ltd. Creates some of the hottest games and some of the most stylized figures I have seen from these properties. Take a look below at their amazing products with some Kingdom Hearts figures.
Good Smile Company
Another company that has gotten larger over the last few years at Toy Fair, Good Smile Company is a Japanese manufacturer of vinyl figures, large scale figures, and statues. Figures are based on anime, manga, and video games as well as licensed content such as DC, Disney, Overwatch, Zelda, Marvel, Harry Potter, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to name a few.
Outside the show floor they had a huge display of figures from all their product linies.
Enesco, an American company specializing in the sales and distribution of giftware, was again at the New York Toy Fair showing off their line of collectible figures. Most of their products can be found in specialty card and gift retailers, home décor boutiques, as well as mass-market chains and online retailers. They have a display of products from almost all Disney animated movies as well as some DC statues included in the mix.
Another line on display was Miss Mindy’s ‘Cartoon Folk Art’ which features handcrafted sculptures of both original IP and licensed figures. Her amazing Vinyl Toys just drew me in and I felt the need to share these products with you.
Miss Mindy was also at the booth on Sunday and her bubbly personality was refreshing.
Thanks of course go out to all the companies above for welcoming Hi-Def Ninja into their booths and showing us their newest offerings!
