Plenty of people know I’m a toy fiend. I’ve collected a fair number of them over the years — everything from Godzilla to Futurama to The Muppets to Puppet Master — and I am always looking out for exciting new product.

Continuing my coverage of Toy Fair 2010 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, this photo gallery journeys deeper into what I discovered when I attended this year’s convention on Monday. As always, there was plenty of visual stimulation to be found at Toy Fair.

View Part 1 of my coverage here.

They also have more easily storable dragons and dinosaurs.

From things great in size to small...these tiny Hexbugs are powered by pager batteries and can move pretty quickly.

I don't like creepy crawlies, but these electronic critters from Hexbug, which are sensitive to sound or motion, are intriguing.

...and figures that can be taken apart limb my limb
and reassembled in this character creator.

The Ben 10 franchise, also handled by Bandai, has the same clever idea.

Having your own character creation laboratory gives you thousands upon thousands of possibilities for new characters. It's like being Dr. Frankenstein without the dirty work.

Rock gods also get immortalized in statue form,
including Jimmy Page and Roger Daltrey,
who are part of the KnuckleBonz collection.
