Walking in my local TRU today I spotted a new Beast Boy figure. Soft rubbery type figure and when you squeeze him he "farts". Checked out the packaging and its part of the "Blasters" line and made by Mattel???
There is also a blurb about a new 6pack of mini figures shown on the box's back.

When did this happen and what else can we expect to see?

There was a 6 pack of mini figs out in the past year or so, the 5 heroes and Silky the worm. Not sure who made it.

Mattel getting Teen Titans Go would be great because it would open up the characters to Imaginext if not already available.

I wonder if having Cyborg in both TTG and JL Action had anything to do with this.

My local TRU had blind bags from the same series listed on the AFI home page. It had Dark Robin, an animal version of Beast Boy, Speedy, and I think Blackfire. There may have been one or two more.

Front page news on this. Yes, Mattel has the license. Yes, the products you saw are from Mattel. No, the product I was thinking of is not and from too long ago.

I saw blind bag Teen Titans figures at two TRU locations the last two days. My son bought a couple today. He got Robin and Speedy. They are pretty cool.

I'm curious to see what else Mattel has planned for this license.

I bought two of the 3 packs at TRU tonight. Robin, Starfire, Blackfire and Beast Boy, Raven, Speedy. Also saw a box of the blind bags but held off on those. I'm hoping the blind bags have identifying codes to them for someone to post.

Too bad Mattel won't do anything worthwhile for Teen Titans.... like a legitimate 6" figure line compatible with DCUC. We just have to settle for the few characters we got back then. :(

Not sure this license has anything to do with including the characters in the DCSH, DCUC, etc lines. Considering we got several Titans, Doom Patrol and other related characters, in DCUC and we are getting Wonder Girl in the Walmart Wonder Woman sub line, I think the characters are available. If you look at DCSH and DCUC as a starting point, what Titans characters do you think we still need in that scale / style?

As for Teen Titans Go, I'm more interested to see if Mattel adds product comparable to Target's Justice League 6" line or DC Super Hero Girls.

Saw the new Mattel TTG set in Smyths and think they look poor compared to the old Jazwares set. I didn't like much of the Jazwares stuff but the mini TTG figures really captured the personalities of the TTG versions of the characters. They were just tiny 'statue' figures but really look fantastic.

Saw some TTG blind bags at K-Mart yesterday but they were Jazwares not Mattel. Are the ones you guys finding actual Mattel TTG figures?

Yeah, the set I saw in Smyths last week was Mattel. It's the 5 TTG characters with Silkie. Like some of the ones pictured in this article.

Why is Mattel always a year or two behind ? Seriously going with the Mashers concept now ? Mattel went from getting more of my money every week then my wife did, to only getting money from me when their products go 70 % off or higher like the last wave of Multiverse $5 each. It is honestly kind of sad at this point.

Yes. The figures I am referencing are most definitely Mattel product.

The new 3 packs are paired with single, blind-bagged figures ala Mighty Minis. They stand a bit wider and taller, but the packaging and play style are exactly the same.

As such, I bought a set of blind bagged figures at Walmart yesterday (TRU also had them but they were charging more for them naturally). The figures are coded, but the code is embossed into the foil wrapper rather than being printed on like the Mighty Minis are. It makes it a bit harder to decode, but it is there.

Here they are for those that are interested:
01 Raven
02 Speedy
03 Blackfire
04 Jinx
05 Robin (all red costume)
06 Beast Boy (gorilla form)
07 Cyborg
08 Starfire

The Starfire, Blackfire, Raven, and Speedy are exactly the same in the 3 packs and bagged. For $9.99 you can skip those characters bags and end up with a Beast Boy (human form) and Robin (Red and Green costume), or, like I needed to do to put the list together [your welcome everyone :wink: ], end up with a few extras.

I haven't seen the 6pack ( https://www.amazon.com/Teen-Titans-Mini ... +titans+go ) in stores yet, but looking at it on Amazon each character has a unique facial expression and they all come with accessories which they don't get in the blind bags or in the 3packs.

I missed that post, Ben... would've saved me a lot of time, LOL...

Found them today and you aren't kidding about those codes being hard to read. Funny thing is that you get them out in natural light and they're really easy to read.

Was nice that Speedy got his quiver but why no bow?...

One thing I notice digging though that particular box, the characters seem to be packed together. Like 4 or 5 of the same one stacked up then 4 or 5 of the next one, so whatever you do, don't just grab a couple of packs and head to the registers, make sure the codes are different on the bags.
