What do we think the chances are that these 2 6 inch figures will make it to a discount store? I mean they already had them packaged and everything.

I honestly don't think there is any more stock for them. It looks like they made it to specialty shops and that was it.

Show of hands: how many got into the YJ figures just for the Hall of Justice anyway?



While I like the HoJ it wasn't the reason I got into the line. I liked it. I'm glad I picked up the YJ Hal off ebay a few months back though. because I'd have been upset if I'd not gotten that figure.

I tracked down a Kid Flash for $35 with shipping on Amazon and they only had 1 left it said. I guess I will just have to wait to see if Batman shows up boxed or worst case scenario buy him loose from China.

Looks like they actually have 3 Kid Flash left from Toywiz.

That's my story too. Pre-ordering with BBTS has saved me a few times like that.

I just picked up Superboy and Sportsmaster from Target today on clearance. I hope I find Red Arrow somewhere on clearance, then I will have collected the entire line (on clearance)! They were just too friggin expensive.

I thought Batman/Kid Flash were already out but I guess it was just a little trickle (just like the final Infinite Heroes 3-packs I looked and looked for to no avail and go for crazy prices on Ebay).

And personally I hated the Hall of Justice and hate all build-a-anything lines. I fear construction will never be complete for the homeless JLA.

I thought the HOJ was a boring chunk of plastic, honestly. I don't think much more of the 4-inch figures.

Mattel is having a lot of bad luck with their products going into full production and the stores canceling on them. The green Lantern Movie Masters, Young Justice, DCIH 3 packs.

I really really loved the 6-inch figure sets. Great sets. But...eargh...That Mattel distribution! When Sportsmaster sightings started hitting, I spent 3 months looking everywhere, forever, for him. Yesterday, I go to Target, and there are *5* Sportsmasters all red tagged at $14.00. Wonderful distributiuon. :x
I've been so sore about it, I couldn't bring myself to buy the white suit Superboy. It would just sit there and mock me day and night, laughing and reminding me he is not the black and jeans Superboy.

I bought Kid Flash on ebay/China for $10, but what does it matter now. I really supported this line in the beginning though.

I know this isnt perfect but check ebay. There are some 6" Batmans on there they don't have the accessories but it may be the best thing you can get

I still have my 6-Inch Batman in my BBTS Pile of Loot. I contemplated getting a Kid Flash, but decided against it at full price. I have them all except Kid Flash and Sportsmaster (which I skipped on clearance at Target), but I only paid full price for Batman.

Me. I've got it now. I also got sucked in by Amazo, who I think looks good with JLU (I like Miss Martian and Cheshire for the same reason). The other figures are all in a box. While I was looking forward to the Lagoon Boy figure, I'm not that broken up about it. I do feel sorry for others who really wanted other figures.

Found a packaged Batman for $55. I just don't know if it is worth it.

Here's a little info from Mattel's DC Retail team about what's going on with Batman, Kid Flash, and the 2-packs. Not that clear of an answer, but...uhmmm...yeah.

The items that I've stated were produced so they are out there. The channel is a bigger question as it depends which retailer's order gets the right mix with the latest product. Hence, Kid Flash, etc might not be able to be found everywhere.

Well I dont think he (or any of the other 6" ) was worth it at 22.00 so that answers that...


Now if you want it -- you have to play the odds-- is it going to be like the JLU 6 packs that never showed up or the JLU Thanagar pack that was in plentiful supply at discounters..
