Toy Fair 2010: New Tyr coming from Mattel

The MattyCollector Facebook page posted a new image taken from Today's Toy Fair in New York. Among the figures coming soon (don't know when "soon" is) will be a new Tyr figure. Mattel is remaking and reissuing the figures that came out in the 1984-85 "Super Powers" line. Among all the other cool figures, Tyr is in the lower left corner next to new Obsidian, Zatanna, and Ultra-Humanite.



 


For reference, here's the original Tyr figure from the Super Powers line.

Did you notice the other figure from the 30th Century? :)

Just behind Hourman.

It's the arm-becomes-a-weapon conceit that makes this appealing to 8-year-old fanboys of all ages. (No put-down there, really, I'm mentally about 12 a lot of the time. {grin})

Still, I'm really tired of Tyr. (Is it pronounced "tier" or "tire"?) He was two-dimensional in the comics, and is still that way in, well, three dimensions.

Crikey, this is at least his third figure already.

I'd never before considered that the Ultra-Humanite might still be alive in the 30th Century...

What with the relative size of the Ultra-Humanite? Whose body did he inhabit this time, Detective Chimp?
