With the summer blockbuster season fast approaching, The 2012 Time To Play Spring Showcase was held in NYC today and I caught a sneak peek at some of the hot new tie-in toys that are on the way. Among the highlights of what was showcased was the new line of various goodies from the Marvel Studios films The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man.

Lego had a big presence with their line of heroes, villains, and Helicarrier play sets ready to assemble from The Avengers. Some older favorites from Hasbro like the Hulk Smash fists, hero character masks, and mini Captain America Attack Shield will be back on shelves. Those items will be joined by new Spider-Man role play toys that include the iconic mask with glowing spider-sense eyes and Spidey glove web-shooters with authentic movie sound effects activated by wrist movement. There is even a real wall crawling remote controlled Spider-Man figure. Yes, it climbs up, down, and all around a smooth wall!
