Hopefully, with a sell-out that quick they'll offer a Lobo re-issue in a few months.


That would make me nervous. I'd rather see some other big guns first and then go back to Lobo.


I doubt they'd go straight back to Lobo. That's not how they do the MOTUC re-issues and it's not how they talk about re-issuing anything else when it comes up...

True. I think the biggest issue now is whether or not they planned anyone beyond Lobo or if they were taking a wait and see approach. We may be looking at 9 months to a year before another figure shows up.

Noooooooo! I want my JLU now! :wink:

Seriously, I hope we don't have to wait that long. I realize it takes months to get a figure to the marketplace, but I'm hoping that Mattel already has something in the planning stages.

Hey Scott/TG, Why can't all your products last 4 hours, that's the perfect amount of time for everyone to get what they want?

I guess they can give us an indication of what happens next during their SDCC panel/Q&A. Would be wonderful if they actually had the foresight to start sculpting another big character and could reveal the early stages of it in their slideshow presentation.

I really hope the next one isn't Destroyer Darkseid. He's better suited for a retail 3-pack with 2 parademons. I think he'd underperform as an online exclusive.

Good to see Lobo did well. Hopefully there is another "big guy" offered soon.

I doubt it. That would not be a good choice.

Just refreshed their page and..... LOBO IS SOLD OUT!!!!

Only took a little over 4 hours. That's a hell of a lot faster than any previous JLU exclusive. It better be good enough for Mattel to offer more in the future. Bring on Kalibak and S.T.R.I.P.E.!


Bring on Black Mass and Blockbuster! OK, I'm getting a little carried away.

Cantina Dan for the win. Glad most of my work department is already gone. I'd be getting some very strange looks for the laughter when I read that.

While I do hope everyone who missed him is able to pick him up, the sellout is GREAT news for the JLU line. Hopefully they'll view it like someone else said - when you make someone that the fans WANT (like Lobo or Marvel Family), and you make them RIGHT (like Lobo, UNlike Marvel Family) you will sell them.

Here's hoping for STRIPE next!
