Hanna-Barbera by Jazwares

Recommended Posts

So Jazwares has decided to put out a line of Hanna-Barbera figures. The figures are 3-4 inches tall, and fully poseable with multiple-points of articulation. Wave 1 consists of two from the The Flintstones (Fred & Dino), Yogi Bear, Rosie the Robot (from The Jetsons), and Tom & Jerry.

 

What I like:

 

The line itself is a great idea. Classic animated friends brought back to the toy aisles. Along with characters from the aforementioned Wave 1, the back package has two indications we'll see more. One being the logos, including the addition of Captain Caveman and Secret Squirrel, and the other being the picture seen on the back, with a host of HB characters (Quick Draw, Dyno-mutt, Jabber Jaws, Magilla Gorilla, Wally Gator, and many, many more).

 

The price is right as well. At the Toys R Us in Times Square, they ran for $7.99 each.

 

What I am neutral on:

 

The accessories didn't bowl me over, but I wasn't really interested in them for this reason. Fred comes with a BROWN Water Buffalo hat (and we all know it should have been BLUE). While the hat has a peg in it and Fred's head a hole for said peg, it just looks ridiculous. My Fred will not be wearing his hat. Yogi Bear has a picnic basket, and Dino a bone, and these are fine, but again, not why I wanted them.

 

What I dislike:

 

Jerry. I mentioned these figures were 3-4 inches high, but a 3-4 inch Jerry standing next to a 3-4 inch Tom does not work. Jerry should have been Tom's accessory, maybe half an inch high (or less). I passed on Jerry, and Tom for that matter, and, based on what was left on the shelf, it would seem many others felt the same way (Rosie was gone and I got the last Fred, with 1 Dino & Yogi left as well. The rest were all Tom & Jerry). Tom & Jerry should be redone and added to a future wave (heck, the same Tom is fine, just change the accessory to a little Jerry), and scale should be considered on all future figures (Pebbles, Bam Bam, Jabber Jaws, etc...).

 

Overall, I give them 4 out of 5 stars. As I said, I love this idea, and the line has potential, with so many great characters to choose from. Watch the scale and paint colors, and keep them coming! One final note for thought: How cool would it be if they made a Yogi's Ark for a display case for them!

Wow. I would have been happy if 6 people READ the review, but comments as well? Gives me a lot of hope for the line, or should I say lines? Two things:

 

1. Yes, I said lines. Hong Kong Phooey, Space Ghost & Huckleberry Hound are from the same company, but a different line. They are in the 8 to 12 inch range. Very cool looking, and great sculpts. I was tempted, and am still on the fence for these, but, for me, the problem is space. 50 3-4 inch figures (a guy can dream) is still much easier to display than 50 8-12 inch figures. The larger ones would virtually take up a whole display case, as opposed to one shelf for all the little guys.

 

2. Saw on the toy web sites (BBTS, etc...) that Secret Squirrel and Captain Caveman will be joining the smaller line in October. I believe larger ones will also be coming out then as well.

 

Jazwares, if you read this, you may want to update your site! Give us some information, and show us some pictures. I'm guessing Captain Caveman & Secret Squirrel are like a Wave 1.5, but who's making the cut in Wave 2 (Barney, Wally Gator, Scooby?), and when?

 

Thanks to who posted the pictures! You can actually see how goofy that hat looks on Fred, but I'm just happy we got a Fred! Maybe a bowling ball would have been better.

I will probably get a Hong Kong Phooey for my dad, I loved watching that with him when I was a kid.

 

I read a review for Space Ghost, the guy wrote that he had loose leg joints. I'll still get him, probably the best we are going to get. Would love a Birdman too.

Thanks for posting about these...i had never heard anything on them, and BAM, here they are!

 

went to TRU today...found a Fred (1 of 3 with decent paint apps). No dinos, one Yogi, several sets of Tom and Jerry on the pegs...empty pegs for 6in figures, and one for the smaller Captain Caveman...they even had a 15in Caveman plush on the shelf! Cool stuff! Again, more of a Flintstones fan as far as Hanna Barbara goes, but a cool line that i hope gets to keep on going!

 

I'll post some Fred pics soon!

Got Rosie & Tom (yep, I caved) at a Toys R Us in NJ for $6.99 each. Tom is perfect, but Rosie, while on moving wheels, is a bit tough to stand up on her own. I'll have to figure something out for that.

 

Looking forward to Captain Caveman and Secret Squirrel.

Very sweet guys, thanks for posting pics! I like the idea, I really like the design and the kind of randomness of it all, but I don't care for the size. Just seems a little small to me, but I guess I should see it in hand before making a final decision. Though I doubt I will get them besides Birdman and Fooey, I know Birdman is in 6" scale, but I wonder how big Fooey is.

He is about the same size as Fred and Dino
