Toy fare: Marvel Enterprises, that "global character-based entertainment licensing company," has announced it's consolidating its toy licenses with Russ Berrie and Company for the plush and gift categories. Expect a glut of Spider-Man plush toys for the holidays, followed by Fantastic Four, Thor, Iron Man, Silver Surfer, Namor and others. Okay, I admit I want to see the plush versions of Silver Surfer and Namor.
