I found a full case of the 4"-ish line at a TRU. It had 12 pieces and all were Yogi, Tom, and Jerry.

the case of 12 I saw at my local TRU yesterday was Fred, Dino, and Rosie.

Great, assortments are sent out in split cases.

I'm not planning on being a completist with this line, but I don't want regional disparity in shipping making me miss the figures I do want....

I'll probably just get Rosie (and Blue Falcon and Dynomutt -- when they get around to them if they look good).

Well -- I will probably get Rosie, Dino-- and Hong Kong Phooey-- and of course Secret Squirrel)

From the pics- I am really disappointed in what this line could have been..

Found the 3 inch stuff at TRU today. The sculpts look great but the paint is atrocious! I couldn't find one Fred that didn't have black scuff marks all over his face. I'm going to have to find more of these to determine if I want them or not. Between the paint and the fact that, just like the Adventure Time line, the scale is all over the place I definitely won't be a completest in this line.

They are far from perfect, the execution is questionable, but I can't stop playing with them.

Still answer me this Jazwares....why the hell is the top of Huckelberry Hounds removable?

I was wondering that myself. Really doesn't help the aesthetics to have this weird line across the forehead.
On my way home from work yesterday I decided to stop by another TRU and found a Fred and Dino with much better paint aps. I had some coupons so I picked them up for $2 each. I have to say that I love them. I didn't want to but I do. All I've seen are Fred, Dino, and Rosie but they said they might have the 6 inch stuff today. I'm planning on getting Space Ghost but I might need the others too.

Space Ghost, Blue Falcon & Dyno-Mutt, Captain Caveman, Hong Kong Phooey, and Quick Draw McGraw (preferably as El Kabong) are my "Must Have" short list.

Everything above and beyond those is just gravy on the cake!

Looking forward to finding Rosie for my robot collection. I'm pretty happy with the Space Ghost I have--the one from a few years back that came with the "Coast-To-Coast" desk, chair and coffee mug -- but I'm a sucker for the character so if it's well done, I'm probably in for that figure, too. Always assuming I can even find them; no more eBay for me.

Rosie- is only one per case of 12 -- just so people are aware-- Mine had the Dino, Fred, and Rosie case- (next to the new Looney Toons Show PVCs) I left Fred-- I think he looks just as horrible in person as he did in your guy's pictures..

Where are these located in TRU? I couldn't find them today.

Are they only available at TRU?

In the aisle with Adventure Time, Ben-10 (I think), The new Batman line, etc.

Really? We must have gotten a lot of cases then because Rosie was plentiful at the one TRU I found them at.

Picked up Space Ghost today and I really like him. My big issue is that he has articulated wrists so he can use one hand to hit the buttons on his gauntlet but the rest of the arm articulation doesn't allow his arms to make that pose! Definitely has more articulation than the old version but still falls short of DCUC or ML.

Overall the line is really fun so far. I think I would have preferred them to reserve the 6 inch line for more realistic characters like any of their superheroes and Johnny Quest types and save the 3 inch line for the more cartoonish characters like the what we have seen so far.

Cardbacks don't really show anything except some generic stock art of the entire HB roster.

No bios, no histories, no copy.

Its just a nicely shaped card with the stock art back and the figures in a band along the bottom.

Very disappointed in the packaging to say the least.
