I was reading a thread about the Superfriends line over on the DC Comics board and a guy claims he called Mattel's customer service and got some interesting news...He said the rep rattled off a list of characters from the assortments and listed both Cyborg and Hawkman as well as ROBIN and JOKER for November 07 release.


His name wouldn't have to be Joeb63 or something like that would it? If so he's a psychopath and nothing he says should be taken seriously. He has claimed to be on a first name basis with several Mattel reps and laid down some serous bull about the new figures planned before comic con. Needless to say it was all lies and exagggerations. He has been banned from both this forum and the HOJ and quite a few other sites if I remember correctly.

He is not a well man.

So does anyone have an official case breakdown on these guys? I know the first cases only contained Supes/Bats/Flash with fewer Flash than the other two. Are the new cases only containing GL/Lex/AM? or is it still S/B/F PLUS GL/Lex/AM? I know kids want B/S more but you would think they (DC/WB/Mattel) would want the other guys easy to find to get the kids "hooked" on them. I don't get it. Last night I saw multiple Batmen, Supermen, a few Flashes, 2 GLs, 1 Lex and 0 Aquaman. I like these much better than the Spidey and Friends stuff. Hope we get a Martian Manhunter down the road :D

1st case report given here was
3x Batman
2x Superman
1x Flash

I think it was from Vanilla Blue who got a case from I think BBTS.

As for Mars, with his prominent role on JL and now appearing on The Batman, I think he's likely at some point. Along with Robin.

I've been seeing Supermans and Batmans everywhere; Flash relatively frequently, though not as much. Have seen GL once (bought him) and Lex twice (bought both, once for me and once for another)....no sign of Aquaman yet.

Hopefully when new characters are added they won't be one per case, but it wouldn't surprise me. I really want that Hawkman, though! :D

I don't know if that poster on the DC boards is telling the truth, but I would think Robin & Joker would be highly likely for the line.

Other then them, I'll be ecstatic if both Wonder Woman & Martian Manhunter see the light of day for this line.

I just read over on DC's boards that Costco is carrying these in 3-packs.

Superman, Luthor & Flash
Batman, Lantern & Aquaman

If you're having trouble finding individual characters, that might be the way to go.

That's great news, although I already have Batman, Superman and Flash already on my shelf.

Has anyone purchased the Spiderman and friends figures. I wanted to see how Superfriends looks displayed vs. SAF?

This is great news. What kind of a store is "Costco"?
What about BJ's? I have one of those near by.

Oh wow kewl. Thanks. The Xmen look slightly bigger. I was debating whether or not to get SAF. I got to find that Beast figure first.

Costco is very similar to Sam's Club -- a big warehouse-type store that carries items in bulk, and requires a membership.

I've found and bought all of the Super Friends except for Aquaman...still haven't seen him anywhere. I keep checking TRU's website, but nothing since they ran out a few weeks back...

Anyway. Really love these. I hope they're doing well and we see a lot more of 'em!

I think the only possible problem is Mom / Grandpa walking into the toy isle and being presented with 4 different styles and scales of say Superman, not knowing which one to buy.

Justice League Unlimited
DCSuperHeroes
Superfriends
Man of Steel

etc.
