Mike, I will not fail you. I stand ever strong in the face of this adversity.

I choose to go to collect JLU in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

See, I am actually hearing inspirational music played on the fife and drum in my heart right now. . . . . . . .

I think I'll go eat some apple pie and watch 'Patton.'

If I quit JLU, I quit collecting so I guess I have to keep going. What else would I spend money on? Food? My wife? C'mon!

There is no way I am going to quit collecting what to me is my favorite toyline. Until Mattel stops producing the toys themselves, I'll still be looking for them.

News flash : Mattel HAS stopped. After Miracle, Fire & Ice it's done.

Peace,

Chip

I can't wait to get some announcements from Mattel about the line after Fire, Ice, and Miracle so Chip can have some humble pie. Negative Nancy much? :roll:

Too bad we'll never get any announcement.

I guess being the voice of reason really rankles everyone, eh?

Unless Mattel says otherwise, the line is done. What is incorrect about that statement?

Peace,

Chip

For the record, I will not and have not given up on JLU. I'm still customizing away!!!

The negative nancy stuff is kind of charming in how unwavering it is, but having to look at that horrible picture of Peter Gabriel every time Chip posts, not so much.

Didn't Mattel come on here and say that the line was continuing with new figures in the fall and they were re-releasing hard to get figures in the spring? That's the last I heard.
Seems to me that Chip is just assuming because he hasn't seen much lately. The proof is in the pudding. Why would Mattel lie about a line continuing ?

THE CALL has gone out, let those brave few assemble. I too, will join this neverending battle to find those miscellaneous figures that are not of the Trinity. Friends, fanboys and collectors alike, let us push forth and follow HIM that will lead us from desperation of no new jlu. Tis not a question of reason, but one of Faith. Hear not the naysayers, keep hope alive!!!! :D

Canceled or not canceled, its plastic and its a fun toy, if they keep coming, Ill keep buying. ....yknow as long as no lead paint is involved or any violation of rights or business practices.................NOOOOOOOOOT.
Keep bringing em Mattel.

Tell me my life is about to begin
Tell me that I am a hero,
Promise me all of your violent dreams
Light up your body with anger.
Now, in this ugly world
it is time to destroy all this evil.
Now, when I give the word
get ready to fight for your freedom
Now -

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies
That have spread like disease through our minds.
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness
To all who our love now deserve.
Some of you are going to die -
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide.

I'll give you the names of those you must kill,
All must die with their children.
Carry their heads to the palace of old,
Hang them high, let the blood flow.
Now, in this ugly world
break all the chains around us,
Now, the crusade has begun
give us a land fit for heroes,
Now -

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies
That have spread like disease through our minds.
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness
To all who our love now deserve.
Some of you are going to die -
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide.

Peace,

PG

As of right now, the line is dead. No retailer has picked up the line. Mattel states that they are 'looking into' other ways to get out new figures, but that is just talk to placate the online fanbase.

They plan on releasing Miracle, Fire and Ice in the spring. They plan on probably rotating the Volcana, Sand, etc, packs in with those new three-packs to satisfy the demand for those who missed them the first go-around.

As far as any new characters, there is nothing. The line is dead.

Peace,

Chip
