Could it be Action League-ish? Imaginext-y?

WBCP also announced that Fisher Price will be taking on the Super Friends license to create toys for a younger audience.

Not exactly sure how this is news (not making a slam on you, CJF28, it's all on WBCP) unless it actually means that they're going to out-and-out use the Hanna-Barbera series as a basis for the toys as they've been using the name "Super Friends" on every Fisher-Price DC toy line they've done to date except for the Krypto line.

Maybe they'll bring back the original Super Friends line of toys, the line before the name was co-opted for all of the other toy lines they had since.

I doubt that we will see any form of "new" line being introduced under this banner.

I believe that we will see an expansion of the Imaginext brand to include more of the DC roster as well as a sub group of offerings tied into the upcoming Man of Steel movie.

I would also imagine that we will see new offerings in the Hero World group (the newest issue of Previews has a listing for a case packout that supposedly includes the Robin figure) either in the basic form, the new VoiceComm format, or some new evolution of that brand.

And, personally, I'd love it if they offered more figures in the Little People line as well.

Anything beyond that would surprise me.

Yeah, more toys named after me!

Can't help noticing that Cyborg is prominently featured.
