Just be glad you don't live in the UK. I will have to pay custom charges on these when they arrive which when added to the cost + shipping from Matty it'll make these close to $50 a pack.

Even sub figures are getting hit up for custom charges now, this hobby has become way more expensive than it should be.



$41? $50? You guys are making me feel like I got a great deal!

Yeah, it is way too expensive, and the way Mattel deals with stuff that isn't selling as well as they want because the prices are too high is to raise the prices more. Someday the majority of us will just get out and look on jealously at the tiny group of rich folks who own 3 3/4 figs that sell for $75. Toys aren't for the 99 percent anymore, I guess.

I've been a toy collector ever since I was a kid, and a comic fan just as long, but once jlu, dcuc/sub and the last couple of MOTUC characters I want come out, I'll be pretty much out of the collector game. It's too expensive these days, they take up loads of room (although they look great displayed) and my cash can go on other things. So starting next year my only regular purchase will be the dcuc type lines and one or two he-man figures.

That's me too. When JLU is done I'm done too except for a few vintage 80's G.I. Joe and maybe a few of those vintage MOTU figures that I don't have yet.

Sweet. Mine are on the way. I'm also pleased Dwayne McDuffie gets one more send off with the Static figure. (tips hat)

Anybody else notice Matty recently removed most of the old JLU product that has been on it's site from the beginning? There are only about 7 actual JLU products that I could find on the site. Not that you could still buy any of them except for the Static pack anyhow but I'm not sure it bodes well for any of these other sets returning for a future sale. No big deal to me. Just an observation.

Wow, two days and barely anything's sold out. I thought for sure Mirror Master would be gone by now, considering his relative high status as a major Flash baddie.

Who knew a re-release of Bow would go before a brand new figure? :shock:

Got my shipping confirmation, but never got my order confirmation email from Matty/DR. Should have them in hand on the east coast by Tues/Wednesday. It usually takes me exactly a week from the day of purchase to get them in hand... I also splurged and picked up a pack of 6" flight stands, mostly out of curiosity. Has anyone else picked these up?

Not a re-issue this time around, just left-over customer service stock.

That's too bad. By the time I got on he was gone. Oh well.

I noticed that, so I actually ordered mine today. I was holding off for some unknown reason. Oh wait I do know why? Because I really don't like paying $30 a 3pack, almost $9 shipping & being taxed on top of it, & dealing with digital river, & getting it shipped to me with no packing & having something I paid $40 for come damaged. So I guess it was a tough decision for me to purchase these. Once I saw they were almost gone, I guess that kind of persuaded me to buy them now.
