THE SECRET JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED FIGURE
An ACTION FIGURE INSIDER EXCLUSIVE!
By Julius Marx
In the world of action figures there have been several special edition "holiday gift" figures. These hard to find figures are sometimes sent to press and retailers as a way to say "thank you" for promoting and supporting a line. Sometimes the figures are simple repaints. Sometimes the are an existing figure with a little Santa hat glued on. Sometimes it is a figure with a special holiday message written on it. Palisades Toys have been the most prolific at creating some of these mouth watering practically unobtainable figures, but other companies such as Sideshow have also done special holiday thank you figures in their history. Over the years there have been many exclusive, impossible action figures, toys and cars. The most notorious maybe the Ken Lilly Kermit/Miss Piggy wedding gift set given only to people attending his wedding and a few select others. Figures like these often times make the collectors crazy and some begin a quest to complete their collection price be damned!
Now Mattel comes along with a figure so secret and most likely so unobtainable that it will drive many fans to drink a little more egg nog this season… and well into the new year.
