What started on Monday with a triple-team appeal to continue the DC Universe Classics line, continues today in a fashion that is appropriate to the gravity the current situation: it’s big time. In fact, with the fate of the line currently hanging in the balance (or in the thermometer) the bravest and boldest (see what I did there?) and BIGGEST DCUC product execution is about to be released – the Legion of Superheroes 12 Pack!

So awesome. I can't wait for this thing.

In one shot, that box covers 12 out of the 31 in this pic:

Besides some of the (close-up) paint apps on the faces, the set looks amazing overall.

Awesome pic! (BTW, it's 12 of 30; Wildfire is represented twice in the picture.)

It really makes me wish we were getting more women in this boxed set. I guess it's wishful thinking at this point to hope that Mattel might give us more LOSH figures.

Stay positive.

Mattel did say: ...the 12 pack is not the be all end all of the Legion in DCUC!

I am definitely getting this set as I am a big fan of the 80's LOSH. Prolly get 2 actually :) I almost wish they split it up the more popular characters so a second set would sell better but oh well. The addition of the legion rings is a nice touch. i find it funny they did Superboy in the lighter blue that to my knowledge has been a request of a alot of collectors for Superman.

I'm not a huge Legion fan. Some of the characters appeal to me, like Dawnstar and Wildfire, but that's too big a chunk of change for me to drop on characters I'm lukewarm about at best.

I know it has been discussed in the past, but now that we are this close to the set actually being purchasable....

what is the anticipated price point on this set again?

I'm not a big Legion fan by any stretch, but I am a HUGE fan of team sets. Looking at these preview pictures has got me in a Pavlovian salivating state. If the price tag on the Crime Syndicate set stung, I can't imagine how this set is going to feel. But it'll be totally worth it.

While I don't know if we've gotten an official price (anybody who knows, chime in), $15 x 12 is $180. Add in shipping and you're probably looking at a cool $200.

Or maybe $199. :mrgreen:

I'll be shocked (and pleasantly surprised) is it's less.

This set is just so ridiculously cool. It might be my favorite thing to come out of the DCUC line.

While the set is cool, I can't believe they put Superboy in the set. Superboy is totally retail material. The picture at the Fwoosh vs the pic from the comic above really shows how badly this set is lopsided male vs female. For an exclusive set, they should have gone more in the other direction.

They've mentioned Superboy minus the flight ring at retail as a possibility in the past (though that's not looking good outside of a "Superman Legacy" sub-line) and the set was supposed to be a 24-pack when planning began so I'm sure that a lot of female Legionaires were cut (seem to remember someone quoting Cornboy on Duo Damsel and at least one other female being cut).

And, unless something has changed, the last price I heard for the set was $180.

I would have loved to get more females in the line too. But I also want Sun Boy, Element Lad, a real Lyle Norg Invisible Kid, Bouncing Boy, Mon-El (which would have been a great replacement for Superboy, if we were guaranteed to get a Superboy elsewhere). There are so many Legionnaires and I want them all! Almost all. I cannot complain who was included in this set, even if it's another female-less attempt at making The Legion.

My only complaint is Saturn Girl. I wanted the swimsuit version or the modern version in the picture higher up in this thread. I just don't get why they went with this version of Saturn Girl.
