Toywatch: Mattel's action figures coming Real Soon Now

At long last, it looks like the action figures based on the Legion animated show (as opposed to the Justice League episode) might actually be coming out soon. Action Figure Insider has a look at a packaging concept (not necessarily the final product), along with some discussion by the locals:

One might infer that the first wave of figures would be Lightning Lad, Bouncing Boy, Brainiac 5, and of course, Superman. Interestingly, Lightning Lad has two "attack modes" - "spinning blade attack" (!?!) and "flight ring attack". It looks like the flight ring might be attached to his back somehow, and pulling a string attached to the flight ring makes his attack modes work? The figure itself looks nice from the photo, but we'll have to wait to see how it looks in person.

I suspect we'll see the previews of the figures this summer in San Diego.
