This news is only partially great.
Great that the Hawk set is shipping (3 new characters, 1 new cool variant costume).
Disappointing that Mattel is still producing the Eclipso pack after all the negative fan reaction to that set’s pack-out.
Come on Mattel, you say JLU is a fan line, but when the fans tell you straight up that a proposed product is NOT wanted, you really should listen.
I consider myself a huge JLU fan, but I have NO desire to spend 20 to 30 dollars for 1 new figure and a bunch of repaints.
We have asked before, if you must give us repaints, give us ones that matter. Batman from JL:Savage Time. Superman from JL:Hereafter. Superman from Batman Beyond’s The Call.
This ‘eclipsoed’ set of heroes is just more of the wasting of plastic that pervades sets like the Captain Atom, Galetea, Question, and Blackhawk 3 packs.
Its really simple. Maximize the new characters. Minimize the repeats. You get it right some times so when you get it wrong, its hard to understand why. And this Eclipso themed pack is just plain wrong.
