No. Mattel plans to release them both on their Matty Collector site for $30 each somewhere between July and December along with 4 other 3-packs. One pack per month.

HAH no problem with the guy selling that (get what you can if some schmuck is going to fork out $250 for it) but the fact he said variant is hilarious. Guess he is using it as a selling point but if anything it is just a prototype not a variant imo.

Yeah this guy is no fool. He doesn't miss a trick. He always knows when to strike so he can get the most out of his goods.

Actually, now that there is a difference between the t
Prototype and the actual thing, I think this will make prototype mongol more expensive.

I disagree. Why pay through the nose for the incorrect prototype when you can get the real deal for a fraction of the price? The only people buying now are the ones who must have every single JLU figure that was ever made and that's a small group.

I too have to chime in with my THANKS!!!! for those at Mattel who were willing to go this extra distance to get us all a correct Mongul figure! Nice!

No these will all be on Matty.com starting in July I believe. They will be releasing all of the shown/announced but not released three packs starting two at a time. Here's the list again, not necessarily in order of release.

Mongul / Batman / Wonder Woman
Static / Aquagirl / Micron
Guy Gardner / Martian Manhunter / Batman
Fire (Translucent) / Blue Beetle / Booster Gold
Toyman / Dr Destiny / Firefly
Hereafter Superman / Batman / Vandal Savage

When did they announce they were releasing them 2 at a time? I thought it was 1 per month.

You are correct. It is one per month, beginning in July.

OK thanks. I wish it was 2 (or more) per month.

Still dumbfounded by Mattel's unwillingness to squeeze Aquaman (and/or Volcana) into one of the many Batman slots. Or even Booster Gold's. Yes, it would cost money; but it would probably help sell a couple of extra packs, too. I guess we'll find out soon enough how big of a draw Guy Gardner is, and if he can carry a 3-pack by his lonesome.

As long as they're committed to every release and none of them hinge on the release before it, then it won't matter.
