Toyfare #153

Another issue of Toyfare, another Aquaman appearance!

In the newest issue (#153, out today), there's this small piece on the upcoming "Retro-Action" line, which features both Aquaman and Black Manta. Toyfare surmises Aquaman is just "happy to be here", which is probably right on the money.

Speaking of money, this line is exclusive to Toys "R" Us, which for me most likely means I'll have to buy these on eBay. The closest TRU is about a 30 min. drive from my house, and there's just no way I'm going to get lucky enough to find either Aquaman or Manta on the very rare trips I'm able to make over there.

In any case, these are sweet dolls...er, action figures!

They are TRU and online exclusive, meaning places like Big Bad Toy Store, Entertainment Earth and others are carrying them. So you should be safe from eBay prices.

They thing is that these retailers, even TRU, are selling them for 19.99 or higher.

Rob, I have two ToysRUses (?) right around where I live. I'll keep my eyes peeled for them. When are they supposed to go on sale? I didn't know these were appearing; these and those MEGO types that are also supposed to be coming to TRU are gonna keep me going there once a week once the ETA has been established....!

Chunky-Oh, cool. I'll skip endless trips to TRU then!

Russell--These are the Mego-ish ones we've seen previously. The date is "Spring", whatever that officially means.

The first wave: GL, Sinestro, Lex Luthor, and Superman are out now. I saw them tonight. They do look cool, but for $20 I'm going to have to pass unfortunately.

I ordered mine from BigBadToyStore.com and have already gotten my first wave, Supes, Luthor, GL and Sinestro and they're a lot of fun! A couple minor gripes, but overall, retro delightful! I'm digging the scale design on Aquaman! Very Underoos!

Any news about the upcoming waves? Robin, Wonder Woman, Flash...?
