I know that the Little People line was mentioned in one of the other FP DC threads, but figured I'd start one of it's own since the line is no longer exclusive to Target/FP web-store. They're being stocked at Walmart now, anybody seen them anywhere else? Anything new?

I got my friends' son the smaller Batcave set for the Wheelies for Christmas, and he's obsessed with it. His grandparents also got him the Green Lantern Wheelie, so now onto Superman, Batgirl, and Wonder Woman...

I don't collect these toys, but I always check them out when I go to the store. If I had kids, they would have these toys.

If you are a "serious collector" you need to make sure you check the paint apps very carefully with these figures.

There is often bleeding of one color onto another.

Wonder Woman has the added problem of the Gold paint coming from a bad batch and turning green in the package.

I haven't seen it on any of the figures at Walmart and TRU now that they have picked up the sets, but my local Targets are littered with badly painted WW figure sets.

I bought the 3 2packs and have the figures sitting on my dresser as a nice little novelty. I doubt I will be buying the Batcave unless I can find one on a nice killer sale or clearance. Robin would be nice, but I don't need the playset.

Love them. My 14th month old has them and I play with these with him constantly.. He is partial to the Joker. He sleeps with it some nights....

I saw the 3-packs for the first time yesterday and it was tough passing on Batman and Batgirl. Neat little DC representatives!

This line is no longer a Target exclusive.

Walmart has added them to their aisles post-reset and TRU added them to their shelves just after Christmas.

Prices are consistent with Target's (TRU is actually a bit cheaper on this line surprisingly ex: $29.99 for the Batcave vs. $32.99 at Target) but paint apps are all over the place on the figures.

Take that with a grain of salt-- I can still see it. :mrgreen:

Personally I would just tell my kids to use their imagination and fly wonder woman around the room all by herself.. (or find some way to draw some flying chalk lines around her)

I remember when my daughter was that age and she loved the little people. My son is 3 but he's not that into the crap load of little people my brother gave. I would have loved to get him the DC stuff but it'll just sit there.

I remember when Little People were little! :P These look more like Weeble Wobbles to me.

Oh, and I saw the three packs at Walmart last night too.

I always hate it when Mattel confuses invisible with intangible. So I'm glad kids are actually getting a toy instead of empty packaging.

I remember when they were called "Super Juniors!!!" I take it, it's not politically correct to call them that anymore. :wink:

By the way, I still have this comic!

I have no interest in this line, but I'm buying that WW jet. I'll bet I can modify it for other figures. Even if I can't, it's still a cool display piece.
