I'm curious on everyone's thoughts. We've had (to my recollection) two of these non-toys/MOC-eggs already. The first being Wonder Woman's Jet, and the second is Invisible Kid.

I think they're a fun concept for MOC collectors but of course absolutely useless for openers (except for the primary lulz upon seeing it for the first time.

What are your thoughts? Also what else do you think they could make?

(How about a JLU exclusive invisible Martian Manhunter? :D )

There's already an invisible Martian Manhunter. And this one isn't intangible, so you can actually open it!

I think the whole "non-toy" empty blister is a good gag for a laugh. But after that first 30 sec or so of holding it in my hands, its over and I'm ultimately stuck with an empty package.

Since I'm an opener, its even more of a waste. I "get it", but if I had a choice, I wouldn't bother with it again.

I thought the Invisible Jet was stupid; a package with nothing it!

Invisible Kid is sort of a quick, "ha ha," seeing it, even if we knew it was coming, and it certainly doesn't hurt in this case, but ultimately, I'd like tangible items of these things and Mattel is silly enough to say that the 'invisible' items are not currently in the plans as they do not want to ruin the gag non-items (actually, they would say that they cannot discuss unannounced product or whatever, but I think most will get my point).

In the end, if it doesn't hurt the announced product, like the LoSH set, or if people want to pay for an empty package, then these things are fine by me.

It did seem silly that people paid several dollars for an empty Hot Wheels package. :P

Sorry dudes but I LOVED getting an invisible jet! Anything Wonder Woman related is Great seeing as most times an exclusive is not Wonder Woman related!
