I picked up the rest of these yesterday (except for space ghost)-- and immediately regretted opening some of them up-- Im not a scale nazi- but it inexcusable for how they released 3-3/4 Jerry-- hes almost as large as yogi-- and bigger than the 6" Spot that comes with Hong Kong Phooey-- he should have been just an accessory with Tom-

I mean imagine Yakky Doodle or Pixie and Dixie or Blabber, and to a lesser scale-- Ricochet Rabbit, Boo Boo and Bobalou-- the same size as their partners/protaginists--- I mean Jazzwares could have developed a two pack format with a Big 3-3/4 and a small character-- Fred with Pebbles, Rosie with Elroy, Yogi with Boo-Boo, Dino with Bamm Bamm, Tom with Jerry and Tuffy and some other character--

I was disappointed in Hong Kong Phooey as well (the half closed eyes and the non Karate Chop poses), and the fact that Huckleberry is a Giant at that scale--

I mean this could be the ultimate HB line-- but it looks like I am going to have to display them all in different locations so all these size issues dont take away from the fact that I have the characters themselves in Figure form.

I think I really would have preferred the offerings in the way that you are suggesting based on the very few figures I've seen so far.

Which is a shame because my son has really liked their Sonic offerings and based on those alone I had thought we'd get a truly comprehensive line that stood well together en masse.

Oh well.

Glad I'm not nearly a completist with this line.

The 6-pack 2" line is very much in scale with each other. At least the Jetson's pack is. Plus they are small which saves space. I plan on collecting as many of the 6-packs that come out.

I haven't seen Jetsons pack, but I did see the Tom and Jerry pack at TRU the other day. Unfortunately, the figures were way out of scale with each other. Jerry and Tyke were way too big in comparison to Tom and Spike.

This line has a lot of potential; it's too bad the scale is all over the place.

Still no 6-inch figures around here. In fact, still nothing beyond Fred, Dino and Rosie.

That sucks. Have seen a lot of restocking of all of them around here. Fairly easy to find except SG.

Same here, except you can include Rosie the Robot in that exception.

First of all, is that a Star Trek TMP bridge?

And second, Do we know if Space Ghost is only going to be 6"? I am so hoping for a 3 3/4 version. Paint, articulation, cheap plastic, I don't care. I just hope to get small scale version.

I've passed on all of these I've seen, but I want that Space Ghost. Wish I could find him.

Yes it is the TMP bridge . Blip fits right in.

I haven't heard of any plans of them doing him in 3 3/4 scale.

Saw 6 inch Tom and Fred Flintstone at TRU today. Did not pick them up, but the 6 inch Tom fits really well next to the 3 inch Jerry. TRU had pegs for Captain Caveman & Secret Squirrel figs, but there were none to buy. The other pegs were split Yogi/T&J and Flintstones/Jetsons, which I had not noticed before.

I had not thought of that. I might pick them up now. Thanks!

Captain Caveman and Secret Squirrel are the best yet.

There are some really strange/random/bad articulation choices on these. I'm hoping once Vonner gets there that changes in the upcoming figures/waves.
