For 10 bucks, owners get a couple of compact, Little People-like entities in a typical Battle Pack, both entombed in a mysterious substance that’s dissolved in water.

Once released, the little fellows look like sequential-art stars, including Batman, Joker, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Hawkman, Lex Luthor, Gorilla Grodd and the Penguin. Their heads can pop off to trade with others, but I’m not really seeing the play potential here.

One character is revealed on the packaging, while the other is kept secret in a bid to add to the collectibility factor. I’m guessing it won’t  $10 is a ton of money to spend for the Squatz experience.
