Shopping around TRU today, I came across these two new Batman v Superman multipacks from Mattel. They each have a repainted JLU figure, 6" DCUC figure, BvS figure, Total Heroes figure, and Target Brave and the Bold-style Justice League figure.

The JLU figures are definitely new paint jobs, but I am not sure about the others. There was a Superman set, and a Batman set. The packs were $39.99 each, which was cheaper than I expected them to be.

Thanks for posting these pics Ham. Nice job!

Even though I hatehatehate the NU52 costume for Superman, that JLU 'variant' looks pretty eye catching.
I kinda almost want that fig.

Maybe he could face off against Disco Brainiac.

These packs came up in the BvS thread. I think it was said over there that the Total Heroes and the BvS figures are the only ones in each set that isn't a repaint.

EDIT: Yeah, it was page 6 of the BvS thread. I do wonder how different the DCUC style figures are since those molds have both received two paint jobs, their first release in DCUC and their second release in DC Unlimited - guess I need to dig mine out of storage and compare them.

Nice! I hadn't seen the Superman pack yet. Really like that JLU Superman. Pretty cool looking.

Hmm. My first thought was "no, thanks," but then I realized I collect three of the lines represented. So I will probably buy these after all.

Hasn't that same deco been released on a JLU Batman before?... If not it was very similar to it. I wonder why they didn't use a BvS bat on the chest?

If I'm not mistaken, these are the first offerings of the "Nu52-underwear-on-the-inside" JLU style.

Well, it helps if you collect any of the other lines represented in the box. Then the $40 doesn't sting so much.

Batman hasn't appeared in this paint scheme before in JLU. In fact, I don't recall him ever being released sans the black trunks, but I might be wrong. Also, it doesn't show well in the pictures I've posted, but the Batman figure is made of a slightly metallic grey plastic, and looks quite nice. I'll try and get some comparison shots up soon-ish.

Thanks for the heads up, Ham. I was able to pick up both sets on Toysrus.com with free shipping. Sure beats the hassle of hunting them down in stores.

Nice pics!

My figures arrived yesterday. Both sets look really good. I thought I was done with JLU, but I'm glad I got them. Now can we get Granny Goodness? (haha)

I've seen them repeatedly at Toys'R'Us here, but haven't quite brought myself to pull the trigger on the $80. I need a coupon or a sale or something to get me past the sticker shock.
