i hope it's not more than $10

Agreed. I'll pick up some for the kids but otherwise I'm probably passing on these.

I believe these are planned to fit within the $9.99 category same as Microfighters, the small City Starter Sets, Chima Legend Beasts, etcetera. Anywho, the designs feel like taking the comic book realm of Super Heroes and dragging it through the goofy animated realm of Wacky Racers. Definitely great for kids however the overly cartoony appearance and expressions (not to mention each sports the short legs used for children characters) make the minifigures awkward replacements for the fuller more detailed editions. For example, the Green Goblin here is okay but a little oddball compared to the former included in the pricy Juniors set.

Clearly aimed at younger kids. This is good. They become fans at a young age and graduate to the "adult" sets.

Overall these are pretty good. As mentioned (2) minifigs per set is a plus, but definitely geared towards a younger lego fan. I think I like the Hulk car the best.

The Chinese knock offs will have a hay day with these.

So they come with small and regular size legs in the box?

No they come with the "kid" legs he was saying he swapped them out with reg. adult legs.

These don't strike me as something that would have a "hard" street date...

Well they are not available on Amazon, Lego.com, The Lego Store, or even in stores until March 1.

Some people are scalping them on ebay for $20-$25 when they are going to retail for $9.99 so just wondering how he really got his.

In the past TRU in-store & Lego store (& sometimes Walmart in-store) seem to be the most popular for early releases...

I bought 5 out of 6 at Barnes & Noble yesterday. Built Captain America vs. Red Skull while watching Captain America with the kids. Easy, cute, and the kids really like them. Probably not a must have for AFOL, but I bought them "for the kids", so who knows.

In theory, yes, LEGO is aimed at kids. As far as investment is concerned, you need to put your money in sets that are not just for kids. After all, whether it's parents or AFOL, the adults are the ones buying.

It's like they produced the whole line for the figures to be the same height as The Penguin.

I like them with the normal legs...
