Justice League Unlimited Papercraft Kids Meal Toys at Arby's. Awesome or Terrible Idea?

A few days ago, I received the following text message from my wife.
The most ridiculous, time consuming, frustrating kids meal toy ever!!!! Way to go Arby's!!!
She was talking about Arby's Justice League Unlimited head-bobbing papercraft toys (Series 2!). They actually look really cool, but if anyone has any experience with papercraft, you probably know the amount of time and work that goes into assembling the little fragile pieces of art. And if you have any experience with children, you probably know how impatient they can get when it comes to tearing open their kids meal toy so they can play with it before eating one bite of their food.

Lots of tape needed. He's also pretty huge (6-8").
It's an odd combination (even odder when they threw in head-bobbing). I think it's super cool, and so does my daughter... but at the time I'm sure it was a disaster.

Check out the whole series (and series 1) after the jump. Now I want them all.
