Mattel Mashes Up DC & Thomas The Tank Engine


Mattel is bringing some exclusive figures to this year’s San Diego Comic Con. And while rare exclusives are nothing new, this may be one of the most bizarre, silly (and kind of cool) ones yet.

Mattel is combining Thomas The Tank Engine with several famous DC faces exclusively for San Diego Comic Con, including Batman Joker & Harley, as you can see in featured pic. Here is the official press release from Mattel:

"Thomas & Friends™ Super Friends MinisThe world’s favorite engines meet the world’s greatest super heroes as Thomas & Friends™ collide with DC Super Friends™ for a mighty mashup! The engines who keep the Island of Sodor running now have heroic new makeovers as MINIS with designs based on the heroes seen in DC Comics.This exclusive San Diego Comic-Con pack features five fantastic MINIS mashups, including: Exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con: Diesel as the Dark Knight version of Batman! Thomas/Superman Spencer/Cyborg D10/The Joker Millie/Harley QuinnBest of all, it includes a premium, exclusive-to-San Diego Comic-Con package complete with a new comic story revealing the origin of the Thomas& Friends/DC Super Friends mashup and dynamic light-up action! It’s the perfect introduction to the Thomas & Friends/DC Super Friends MINIS."

I would want several of these, but sadly I’m not going to San Diego Comic Con this year, and certainly not willing to pay the ridiculously high prices these will almost certainly be selling for on Ebay…
