The 2013 American International Toy Fair may have come to a close, its figures once more locked away and the promotional banners all carted off, but that doesn’t mean you’ve lost your chance to get an early peek at some of the figures and games looming on the horizon.

Leaked photos of the main cast of “Man of Steel” condensed into action-figure form stole much of the show’s attention, but other prominent 2013 film releases, such as “Iron Man 3″ and “Star Trek Into Darkness” offered a sense of what will be occupying the shelves of toy stores and comic-book shops nationwide.

Featuring an Angry Bird play set (you can fling the birds with your own two hands!) as well as the tallest transformable Transformer on record, the offerings on display were big, bold and unique.
