After deciding that X Plus USA's mildly expensive Hanna-Barbera figurines just weren't for me, I began to wonder if we'd ever see proper figures of these characters again. And then I learned that Jazwares was doing a line. And that it was supposedly already hitting retail in places.
The news that Jazwares has done their own Hanna-Barbera line will surprise many and baffle some. Most fans, however, will be pleased to get articulate representations of some very underrepresented characters like Hong Kong Phooey and Huckleberry Hound as well as icons like Yogi Bear and Tom & Jerry.
So far we've seen Hong Kong Phooey (comes with Spot), Huckleberry Hound, and Space Ghost (comes with Blip) for the 6-inch assortment as well as Fred Flintstone, Dino, Rosie (Jetsons), Tom, Jerry, and Yogi Bear for the 4-inch assortment. These are all hitting retail now. Secret Squirrel and Captain Caveman will supposedly be joining them as well at some point, although photos aren't currently available. Personally, I'm hoping that Jazwares will tackle the Herculoids at some point as well as Dick Dastardly and Muttley (hehehe). Speaking of dogs, I'm guessing Scooby won't be on the menu because we haven't seen him thus far and I believe that he still has his own toy line. Also here's to hoping that Jazwares will give us some Grape Ape.
