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.


You can buy the completed C+C Kalibak with the original paint scheme on Ebay for about $30 - $40. So there is another option if you don't care about the Super Powers paint job.

I already own that version of Kalibak. I want the Super Powers repaint now, along with the rest of those SP figures.

So I guess that Mr. Myx was the last surprise from Mattel. All of the rest of the Super Powers figures are repaints on a new card. At $30 each, I can say NO THANKS. The only thing that I think is pretty cool is that it looks like The Kalibak C&C pieces will come bagged separately and shipped in the same box as the carded figures. Wasn't the Super Powers mail away Clark Kent shipped in a plastic bag as well?

Toyark has more pics of the full Mattel DC display...
http://news.toyark.com/2014/02/16/toy-f ... ics-117039

That Total Zeroes Batman Beyond figure may be the first figure I get from that line, only because of the old Bruce and Terry alternate heads and the other cool accessories.

I'm very disappointed that no new 1966 Batman figures were shown. What does that bode for the line then? Is Mattel not going to bother offering more, despite the tv series being on the verge of release? Very stupid move on their part.

And no 3rd wave of the DC Multiverse figures shown? :(

I can't wait until it's a 30 year anniversary of something I actually care about.

Does anyone know if there is going to be more unveiled this week? I was kind of curious if there would be anything other than Catwoman revealed for the Multiverse line.

Truer words have never been spoken.

SIX figures and I don't want ANY of them. How disappointing. :(

I'm happy to be getting a Super Powers Wonder Woman!! I think the price is high but at least I won't have to search high and low for her. I DO love the hunt but I'll just have to go on Matty.com to get her.

psyched to Have Wonder Woman included in the Total Heroes line too!! Nice to have some figures to look forward to.

I thought those Super Powers figs looked pretty cool at first (except Gold Superman), but $30 a pop? That's crazy. Pass. Especially Mr Mxy. How is that even a figure?

Maybe I will have to get into Total Heroes instead.

Im really happy with the super powers sending off dcuc into the sunset. I was shocked when they decided to go ahead with the hook aquaman, ice, damien,and conner. I was even,stunned moreso when,scott mentioned a last hurrah. I was thinking one lone repaint but to get a much better looking blue suited superman, a satellite jla wonder woman, a neal,batman and a fully tooled mxyz is great. The super powers card to this date is still my favorite packahing in all of toy history. I love the symmetry of bringing dcuc full circle with super powers and they did a great job in nearly wrapping up the fourth wave with the non newly designed creations with gold superman and mxyz to go with the already released,vigilante, man,bat, obsidian, john stewart, kid flash, reverse flash, the wonder twins.

So dear scott,

I couldnt ask for a better valentine. From one super powers super fan to another thanks!

Im buying two of each.

So for me the only big mia figure is hotpant supergirl. She is the only character who appeared in,style guide and promotional items like calendars, lnch boxes, tee shirts that is woefully lacking a dcuc figure.

I think releasing the Super Powers figures is also helping offset the cost of the Doomsday figure. So factor that into the $30

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.


If they really wanted to give Super Powers fans what they want, these would be 4.75 inch scale like the original figures and without all the ultra-articulation ruining the sculpts.

Had pretty much given up on Mattel. But that is the mr mxyzptlk figure I've been wanting since I was a kid. So, yeah, even at $30, I'll be picking it up. Anybody wanna throw in for the kalibak piece?
