Fisher-Price pulled one of their classic moves and released a series of DC Super Friends Imaginext redecos with no preamble whatsoever. I personally love this. Knowing about upcoming action figures a year in advance is nice. It lets you budget your purchases, it lets the anticipation and excitement build before the release date, and it lets you know that the toy companies are hearing your suggestions. I prefer this route for the majority of my collecting interests. But the fact that you usually don't hear about new Imaginext until they are on the shelves is thrilling in its own way. I can't tell you how many times I ran off in a spur-of-the-moment hunting tizzy because some random new figure showed up on eBay in Iowa or something. Before all the internet toy news sites really got into the groove, these hunting blitzes were a regular occurrence for me. So essentially Imaginext hits me on two nostalgic notes, toys of my youth and toy hunting in the nineties. I love these guys. Let's check out Catwoman below!
This outfit amuses me because it looks so much like Bane in Batman the Animated Series.
This Catwoman came with a purple version of her Cat-cycle. The previous release was black.
Time for some Group Pics!
Here she is with the purple blind bag version and the standard black-suited release.
