Flippin' through Previews - April '12

It's time once again to thumb through the toy section of this month's Previews, and see what goodies we can uncover. Scheduled to start shipping in June.

The only thing in the DC Direct area is the resolicit of the Just-Us League of Stupid Heroes on page 148.

IDW has lots of GI Joe comics, starting on page 156 and going through 158, and the Transformers books are on 163.

There's a collection of Strawberry Shortcake comics on page 236. Hey, we promised the items we told you about would be related to toys, not related to toys you like.

Transfans should go to page 377, to take a look at the Grimlock T-shirt.

DST's Universal Select toys will be back this Halloween, featuring the Metaluna Mutant and the Phantom of the Opera. Page 382 holds the proof!

Some good Minimates on page 384: there's a box set based on The Expendables, and series 1 of the Walking Dead figures (based on the comic, not the show). Wait, where's Carl? He's not in the house!

Minimates Series 47 is all X-Men, and all '80s. Relive past glories on page 386.

Page 387 reveals the next Marvel Select figure: Storm. She's even got a 1-in-3 variant with different hair. No, not a mohawk.

Mattel's DC All-Stars Series 2 is listed on page 391. But is this the revamped lineup, or the old one?

Hasbro's GI Joe Retaliation toys are listed on page 395, but there's almost no information and (obviously) no pictures. Useful!

Page 397 shows Mezco's Mars Attacks figure and plush.

Page 398 promos Amazing Spider-Man, again with no info or pictures.

Star Wars toys are listed on 398/399.

Page 399 also has the new TMNT Retro Collection.
