Wow. I am stunned.

We knew the light blue Superman was coming, but the rest of these figures just blow me away. What an awesome way to end DCUC and give Super Powers fans what they want. Amazing. I'll have to get 2 of each just to have carded versions in that awesome Super Powers style packaging.

I'll give Mattel credit for at least not making it a box set so fans can just pick up the figs they want.

Unless you want Kalibak. He's the C&C, so you have to buy all 6 figures to get him. Which I'll be doing without hesitation. :)

Maybe a Mxy--- maybe-- (seems a bit pricey if he is the same price as the other figures..))



Guess Ill be getting 2 Etheria Subs for my wife...

Wish there weren't so many repacks in that 7 Pack-- but Grundy and Red Robin is a surprise..


Any word on the other 3-3/4 line-- saw the figures in Wal Mart today-- so they are at every chain..

I have to admit the super powers send off is much more than I expected from Matty, especially the packaging. Hopefully they wont go nuts on the price point.

I am dying for that two-pack of Lookee and Kowl. Very disappointed it is a subscription exclusive. Hopefully BBTS will have some for sale (albeit at an inflated price). Madame Razz and Broom look funny too. They are a definite maybe.

So did Mattel not show anything new in the 1966 Batman line? What happened to that surfer Joker that was teased last Fall? Surely he is planned as part of another wave of figures.

Here are some additional pics from the Mattel display.

http://news.toyark.com/2014/02/16/toy-f ... ics-117039

This can't be it...are they waiting on Monday or Tuesday for new reveals? It seems to me that Mattel is trying to exit the DC adult collector game and focus more on cheaper toys for the 5 to 10 year old kid market.

It doesn't bother me so much with the strong showing from DCC and the stunning Heath Ledger Joker from NECA. The other licensors seem to be picking up the collector slack nicely.

For reprints of a 1980's card back and a repainted figure.

Where does it say $30 each? And I'm guessing these are available on matty collector only?

It's clearly printed on the cards in front of them. $30 each, Mattycollector.com exclusives. 6 figures with a build-a-figure Kalibak. I personally have no problem with the price since we're getting Kalibak too.
