Action figures spotted in Toyfare

This month's issue of Toyfare (#140) has a small article spotlighting the upcoming 4-pack of Legionnaires: Brainiac 5, Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, and Saturn Girl, all in the animated version from the Superman and Justice League Unlimited series. Sorry for the cellphone picture (click to enlarge).
A famous person once said that three is a crowd and four is company, just like the famous TV show. Hmmm. Doesn't sound right to us either, but that hasn't stopped Mattel from unleashing fan-friendly 4-packs in the JLU animated style starring the Legion of Super-Heroes and the Marvel Family. Later this year you'll be able to buy Brainiac 5, Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, and Saturn Girl in one easy package along with Black Adam, Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel (called Shazam!), and the Wizard in another easy package, both on mattycollector.com this year.

These look awesome! Cannot wait! (yes, I'm a forty year old looking forward to toys.)

So? I'm a 45 year old looking for toys! Gotta have these. I hope they sell well enough that we get a whole bunch of DCUC Legion figures.

These are cool, although I'm a little disappointed they aren't from the Legion's animated series. Wouldn't it be cool if DC Direct released three Smallville Legion figs to complement their existing line from that show?
