File this one under rumor, but I heard from a source within the toy industry this week that Mattel may be producing more of the rescue hero scale Dc SuperFriends. And furthermore, that Robin and Penguin may be on the slate. I guess Toy Fair will tell us in a few weeks, but until then, here are the Robin and Penguin Dc Super Friends designs.

Robin unpainted prototypes have been popping up on ebay, so he looks like a good bet. Target is stocking new repaints of Supes and Bats with Robin pictured on the back. Why they gave up on Hawkman and Cyborg is beyond me. This is an irritating line to collect.

Seeing these figure designs and all the other DC superfriends toys makes me wish I was a kid again. When I was little we had the Mego figures and they were awsome at the time, but now instead of playing with the figures I just collect. I wonder if, in the future, they will Dc figures that will come to life like that movie Toy Soldiers.

Wow, I love the design of both robin and The Penguin, they both look great!! I just love the Super-Friends! They are so cute! That Robin prototype looks pretty good so far. Hope to see more of it soon!

Mattel confirmed at NYCC yesterday that this line is still up and running. Robin was definitely confirmed and shown along with new versions of Batman, Superman, Flash and Aquaman.
There was no mention of Penguin.
Awhile back there were pictures of a Super Friends version of the Joker (NOT the Imaginext one) floating around. So far the only villain in the line is Lex Luthor. It would make sense to make a Penguin and a Joker.
Speaking of Imaginext...The Mattel guys didn't announce anything new with this line, but did say that the Batcave playset was a huge hit for them sales-wise. To me, this indicates that this is a line that has some legs and will probably be continued.
