Just got around to check the mail today (Sunday) and there they were.

Took some pics.
I gotta say, Mongul looks cool. I like the paint apps on the metallic (looking) color on the thighs, belt pockets and the studs on the thigh/arm bands. Nice black gloss o the ear pieces and black areas to him

The Bats.. I dunno if I have this color version. Looks great. Love the dull black and the grey - no purp tint to it. But the inner part of the cape has the blue from previous color version. The outside is black but the inside does not match it.

ENJOY!!!

Actually even though you can't pick and choose a set, the paint apps on Mongul are just as good/bad as past JLU figures (or atleast mine is.) But they ARE minor, he is still awesome... I just thought I would give an FYI for y'all :wink: :)

oh and nice pics Asiatic Prince :)

No Mattel cheaped way out, they send the figure in a blank brown box with the figure pack. Also Mongul is Sold Out now, Ebay may be the only route (unless someone on here has an extra... sorry.)

Yeah, they cheaped out & digital river does not even add any packing material when shipping.This insures that the three pack card slides around & gets all bent up before it arrives to your house! Idiots!

You know there were some people preselling these on ebay. I wonder how they felt when they had to explain to the buyer that the card was damaged?

Thanks for the reply....Man, that sucks, I live in Germany and I'm a little concern with the condition of the packaging when I do order in December . I don't collect JLU (or any figures for that matter), but I'm really anxious to get my hands on Dr. Destiny's figure come December (loved his appearance on Sandman) and want to get an extra to display MOMC.

Yup, my Mongul had better paint apps than some of my previous Matty purchases; so there's still some "luck of the draw" involved with these figures. I figure that, in terms of quality, things are no different from years past.

BTW, Detective Batman (which looks very good) was a nice surprise. And since I didn't have this particular version... I thought of it as a nice tradeoff on my shipping expense. Had the same experience with Destroyer Darkseid in that I was buying the set for Kalibak, but ended up with these more recent Darkseid/Batman versions, as my de facto display figures for those characters. So in my mind, it doesn't feel like I paid $35 dollars for Mongul. Nope, it's more as if I paid $27.01 for him and $7.99 for the Batman figure.

(Math, it's a wonderful thing!) :P

Mine had plenty of the brown paper in the box, so your milage may vary.

I think this one actually did sell out. Well except for what they kept around for exchanges.

I'm a state away from you. Figure they would have thrown at least some brown packing paper in my box. :roll: Just like everything when dealing with the idiots at digital river..... Luck of the draw.

Luckily my Package was in MINT condition, Then again I DID pay 40.70! But still they only packed a single 2 foot sheet of brown packing paper inside... What?!?... Matty you've got some splainin to do... seriously though, I was lucky. But, lol... Ironically I don't keep all my stuff MOC, I popped Mongul and Co. right out. My Mongul's paint is pretty good, but Batman and WW... bleghh. Batman has a crooked Bat-insignia, and a badly painted cowl, boots, and trunks, WW has no eyelashes and other Paint issues all over. So yeah while I am super happy/grateful about having Mongul... Mattel totally cheaped out and it has left a very bad taste in my mouth. I am still sad JLU is ending... but at the same time I will be happy to not have to spend loads of money on poor quality and cruddy service. Sorry everyone I suppose I am just not a true Blue JLU believer/collector... :( ;)
