Timing of the new licenses

There's been some question about the timing of the new releases. Polywen was at the San Diego ComicCon (and got one of the Green Lantern figs, lucky dude) and he got some indication from the people in the LEGO booth. He doesn't remember exactly who said it, but he said it comes down to existing licenses. DC has a current license with Fisher Price (as part of their TRIO Building System), and Marvel currently has a license for building block toys with Mega Bloks. The word is that the LEGO licenses will kick in when these existing licenses expire in January and May 2012, respectively.
