Same here, including buying one on eBay. Now I'm tripping over them -- they're in the regular aisles, and in that seasonal JLU display as well.

I'm hoping for a sale -- I'd like some of the accessories that come with the single figures, like the Phantom
Zone projector, but I don't want to pay full price just to get that.

And you'd think they'd want to get a Zod out onto shelves, just to take advantage of the movie publicity. I'm sure they could adapt one of those BATB armors to make an acceptable Zod (along with a new headsculpt).

A Zod would be cool for this line! I have all of the BATB figures and was glad to see these "justice league" figures released. They are proudly displayed with my BATB figs. I really hope this line continues and we get new figs as well as the unproduced BATB figs (Cap Marvel, Gentleman Ghost, etc). They have the molds, why not make them!

Haven't seen anything about this line. Is there any news from SDCC about this line or has it been cancelled?

I fail to understand why this, the Batman "evergreen" line, this new 6" animated line, the imaginext stuff and "Beware the Batman" are not consolidated into single line. It's like they are trying to compete with them selves.

Sad news about this line, finally got a response from Target, they have no plans for this line. This makes me a little sad, I was hoping to finish off my Brave bold line, with at least Shazam!

And another Mattel DC line bites the dust.

Next up -- Total Zeroes. I bet that line is axed fast next year after the first 1 or 2 waves pegwarm in stores. The sad thing is, Mattel will stupidly and narrow-mindedly take it as a sign that people don't want 6" DC figures of ANY kind, further killing any hope of a DCUC resurrection. :(

I think that the Total Heroes line does have potential to be an expansive line. Hopefully Mattel will release them 6 figures per wave like DCUC instead of 4 figures per wave like Young Justice and the Target Justice League figures. If we can get 4 assortments of 6 figures in 2014, that would be awesome!

The Target JL line was obviously an exclusive one-off. The biggest clue that these was all they were releasing was that they included the Big7 in one wave. Otherwise, they would have spread them apart. Don't know why this comes as a shock to some people considering it took forever before we got Martian Manhunter in the DCUC line.

I didn't know there was a market or fan base for these. If this was years ago I would of bought everything with an S on it and especially a line with the Justice League, times are different and the expense of life has changed this. I wonder what type of sales these did, maybe they were the test product for the new albeit horrible 6 inch line.

I'm just happy to get the armored Luthor figure for my JLU Lex Corp Troopers.

These were not test products for any future lines. They were merely and purely meant to complement Target's summer Justice League program.
They had everything from JL towels to JL plates to JL swim toys to JL candy sprinkles. Nowadays, stores have to offer something special that differentiates them from other retailers. Walmart had the big Man of Steel program.

It would have been nice to have more figures but these figures just prove the point that those hex holes on the BTBatB sucked.

No kidding! It's amazing how much more I like these figures (and how much better they look!) without those stupid holes.

I think more advertising effort was put into that commercial than any for the entire JLU line. :(

Is anyone else sad or annoyed when you see these on Target's shelves? For a line that was meant to go nowhere it sure is achieving its goal. I see them and wish they would make more characters or clearance them out. I might pick up another multi pack at the right price and I sure would like new characters in the line. But there it sits taking up space on the shelves of my Targets so nothing else can go there. So frustrating.
