Expanding a League
A Closer look at upcoming Justice League Unlimited
At Comic Con 2006 last July we got a sneak peek at many of the upcoming 07 waves of JLU figures from Mattel. This year is a significant expansion of the line and gives us several DC characters that have never before seen "plastic." Even though images of the new figures leaked a couple of weeks before the con, and some fans expressed feeling a bit "let down" that there were no other reveals (and in fact a few characters that leaked were not even displayed) it must be remembered that this year has been the most significant expansion of the line so far.
Several of these 3-packs are now in stores. Some are just starting to trickle in. A few are still on the horizon. Toy Fair 07 only showed only the tail end of 07 product. It was recently revealed that there is a new Target 6-pack coming this summer that will give us two new characters including the much requested Gorilla Grodd figure. Also it was announced this week that the Ray/Shayera 3-pack will finally be made available in the form of the summer con exclusive.
I know I’ve been promising this feature for a while! Sorry it took so long, but hey look at all the pretty new pictures!
