None. I found all of them fairly easily. Volcana was before I started collecting anyway so I do not count her plus I never really cared about the figure anyway. I've since sold half my collection but they were all pretty easy to find eventually.

I lack Volcana, the Key and a few much easier to find others.

Also, Hippolyta. Man, I just can't FIND her :lol: :| :( :cry:


If you want to make a custom Hippolyta, the recipe is easy albeit expensive, 3 and 3/4 giganta head with Tala body, cleverly painted and scuplt the head piece and viola, there's Hippolyta.

Volcana. I've found all of the released figures, excepting Volcana. At this point I think she's a lost cause, but if she is the last figure that I need I am sure she will become the figure I forever chase.

Though I no longer have any missing JLU, I remember when Atomic Skull & Volcana
eluded my grasp. What JLU figure still remains out of range for you today? :wink:


By out of range, do you mean "out of price range?" I have all the Matty stuff, most of the retail stuff, except for the stupid crap that never showed up here (6-packs) or disappeared damn fast (Aquaman) or the legendarily elusive (Volcana), and I have no interest in buying them at mental patient prices.

For the longest time it was Volcana (original, not translucent). So I was like:

She tasks me! She tasks me and I shall have her! I'll chase her 'round the moons of Nibia and 'round the Antares Maelstrom and 'round Perdition's flames before I give her up!

Then I saw translucent Volcana on ebay and I was like:

So I bought her. 8)

Black Hawk (yeah... I know :roll: ... I waited because of the leaked lists, that mentioned he would be released as a single, likely with an accessory... that didn't happen... and I won't pay more than retail for a three-pack with only one new figure)

Cyborg (same reasons... I already have Plastic Man with his accessory from the single carded release)

Classic Aquman (I am SO sad I don't have this figure... he's one of my favorites in the line... I live on the east coast, and JLU distribution has always been terrible here)

I have everyone else... thankfully!! I mean, there are versions of figures I don't have (like cartoon colors Green Arrow), but I don't "need" that.

For me, just the Holiday figs (Hal & Grey Ghost, although I have GG in the 3-pack), the unproduced lot (Hawkman, Zatanna and Aquaman repaints, and translucent Volcana) and the rumored lot (Batmite, Starfire, Cyborg Supes and Signalman) if they count. Everything else I found at retail or close enough to it on fleaBay. Oooh, and track suit Batman...not really a necessity for me, but being a Bat fan and considering its rarity, me want! :lol:

Twin Turbo Flash and 10" Justice Lord Batman. Everything else I still *need I'll be able to find and will eventually get (probably).

$104.00

I thought it was around my price range for a testshot, and I"m happy with it.

Was that before, or after Mattel decided not to make her?
How long ago was it?
