Justice League Unlimited
Two weeks ago I showed you the plans for JLU going forward. But since then, Mattel has issued a statement on it, basically saying the same thing.
Due to overwhelming support from the fans, Mattel and Target are teaming up to bring an all new Collector’s Line to store shelves starting this August!
16 brand new figures along with collector requested repaints and reissues will be available in singles, 3-packs and 6 packs. Figures will be out in two waves. Each wave will consist of two 6-packs, two 3 packs and five single carded figures, some with brand new accessories. This line will be sold exclusively at Target stores starting Aug 1, 2008. At this time the line will be an in store exclusive only.
Wave 1 will be revealed at New York Comic Con in April and Wave 2 will be shown at Comic Con San Diego in July.
There may be a few other JLU surprises this year as well. But fans will just have to wait for the summer conventions to find out what!
We are pleased so show the first 6-pack for Wave 1: Attack from Apokolips featuring Superman, Darkseid, Mr. Miracle, Lashina, Mantis and Forager.
Along with these figures, we are excited to announce that the line will also include several major MIA characters including The Question!
