Toy Fair 2017: Character Group Stretch Figures for Disney, DC Comics and Doctor Who

Everything old is new again!! Toy Fair 2017 will echo that promise, as Toy Fairs have for years. You can bet anything that triggers a fond memory from the populace at large will always be considered for a re-vamp, re-imagining or just a straight up re-release! With the recent return of Stretch Armstrong (what ever happened to the movie??!!), we can assume toy companies began looking into our beloved stretch-technology to see if there might be a way to improve on the design so that, perhaps, 10 years from now, the modern stretch toys won't disintegrate in our hands (RIP Vacman. I lovded youuu). Now Character Group is showing off a mini army of 7 inch stretching heroes to wrap around the hearts of a new generation. M@ Hawkins brings us the eye candy...


On tap for 2017 are:

Disney Toy Story and The Incredibles Stretch Figures featuring Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Mr. Incredible. There was a note among the toys seizing a perfect opportunity to remind us that Toy Story 4 is due out June 21, 2019 and The Incredibles 2 is set for release June 15, 2018!

DC Comics' Justice League joins the elongated battle with Batman, Superman and Flash joining the fight. Batman even gets an upgrade into a 10 inch body!

Finally, we've got Scooby-Doo, a license that has done very well for Character in the states, though I wish Toys R Us would fully embrace the line and bring over all those bad guys!! M@ wasn't able to shoot the Scooby display at the tail end of the stretch figures lineup, but from the minimal peek we get, you can clearly see there are other characters beyond Scooby on the way.

As we mentioned, Character has been getting their Scooby product into Toys R Us stores in the states for some time now, so we might expect these stretch figures to see some love across the pond as well! Fingers crossed.
