As I mentioned in the last Major Spoilers Podcast, Mattel JLU toys will only be available at Target stores nationwide. This sucks for me, but great news for everyone else.

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 features Superman, Darkseid (both offered previously), Mr. Miracle, Forager, Lashina, and Mantis.

  1. My favorite JLU character has to be Vigilante, there’s just something about the styling. I was able to pick him up in a 3-pack along with Obsidian & Braniac (YAWN). I just hope that Target gets their act together, as I’ve missed out on some of their exclusive box sets of late. That Gorilla Grod 6-pack was in and out of my area Targets before I had a chance to get out there. If anything Mattel realizes that these characters are highly collectible, as the secondary market really drives the price … and people still pay for them.

    I know in your podcast you said that you didn’t like how Mattel reuses a lot of the torsos for the characters, but that doesn’t really bother me all that much. It was also reported that there might be more characters from the Timm-verse … I would love me a Batman Beyond JLU styled figure.
