I picked up Rosie yesterday for $2 and change after using that TRU $5 Coupon. I am hopefully that we will see more Jetsons, but if not... I paid $2 and change for Rosie :)

Ruh Ro! I hit another another TRU today to see if I could find something new and all they had was the Fred/Dino/Rosie case on the pegs. This won't bother me until a case with George Jetson comes out and my area only gets a case with Yogi in it.

So far I have only seen the following.

3 Inch:
Fred
Dino
Yogi
Tom
Jerry
Rosie

6 Inch

Space Ghost
Hong Kong Phooey
Huckleberry Hound

2 Inch boxed sets
Jetsons
Tom & Jerry

Based on preorder info on other sites and the cardbacks it looks like there are also 6 inch versions of Fred and Tom that have action features and 3 inch Secret Squirrel and Capt. Caveman that should show up soon but I haven't seen anyone who has found these yet.

For those who have the 6" Space Ghost, how does he measure up with 6" lines like DCUC and ML?

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.

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..

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


I wonder if that means there are no specific case assortments-- because at mine it was 6 Freds, 5 Dinos and 1 Rosie. At another it was 6 Dinos 5 Freds and a Rosie

And I have seen them on endcaps next to video game figures as well..

Secret Squirrel is the one I want, but I don't think he's out yet.

Saw some of these yesterday. Man these are the worst painted non quality controlled figs ever. The articulation also looks terrible. Such a shame, i have desperately wanted a HB and Looney Tunes collection my whole life. I guess i have to look to the upcoming xplus pricey figs for such a HB collection. Also saw the TMNT classic figures like 20 sets, non had decent paint or good quality control to even justify buying a set. I guess this is what we can expect from jazwares and playmates, they are no NECA or Mezco for sure (which have also dropped in quality). If all these toy companies want to charge premium prices, they need to also step up quality.

That's surprising about the Turtles. I've seen them plenty of places now as well, but haven't seen a figure that was really "bad". Its one of the newer lines that I think is an example of a well put together line.

I agree with you on the HB figures though. QC is all over the place on those figures, even the ones coming out of the same case.

Picked up the Jetson's 6-pack and it's awesome. Price is steep for 2" figures but it covers all the main guys and I FINALLY have decent figures for my collection. Looking forward to Flintstones, Huck, Top Cat, Quickdraw if they make it to 2" as well.

So the new Jazwares Hanna-Barbera figures have finally started to hit the market. At two scales, 3 inches and 6, it seems like the 6 inch Space Ghost is the most popular. That's owed no doubt to his great design and classic cartoons.

But has Jazwares done the Ghost justice?

Thanks for the Space Ghost review. Interesting. He seems to suffer from the same issues as the 3-inch figures, so it's just an across the license issue with these.

I would love to see a customizer slice into his biceps and make a cut joint there. If I find two of these, it might be a project that I might try.

My TRU in Orlando had the 4 inch figures... Overall sculpt is extremely accurate and has great proportions...but the articulation is where this line careens hardcore off the tracks. They look clunky and odd with all the garish joints...completely unsightly. The paint apps were fairly atrocious on all figures as well. Nice effort Jazzwares, but ultimately a swing and a miss.
