'Cause if this Toy Fair comes and goes without the slightest hint of good news for JLU, then I will personally be a bit ticked off, as will a great many of us.

You know what's been good for me with no JLU to be found? Collecting other things. Seriously, just putting my collecting budget toward something else in the meantime and having some fun has been much better than sitting around and waiting for information out of Mattel.

Waiting 'til February to know whether or not I can look forward to more JLU isn't good enough. I don't want specifics, and I don't need pics. I just want a clear, concise, straight-up, 100% definitive, non-doublespeak answer from Mattel, "line being picked up", or no. The two(and only two) options for this answer are the following:

Option A: Mattel, to the collecting community at large, "Yes, JLU will definitely be moving forward, and we will see a great many more new action figures from this fan-favorite line in the coming year!"

Option B: Mattel, to the same, "No, JLU has been ended, and there are no more plans to make, design, release, or otherwise provide the world at large toys based on this fan-favorite line."

Like The Rock says in The Rundown, "There is no Option C."

But there is. They're working on designs, and they have to get a commitment from retailers before they'll know for sure whether or not they'll go to production.

If JLU(or DCAU) is over then it was a good run, if not more figures!

Knowledge is power, and I'm feeling a little bit powerless right about now. :)

Why don't you just pretend like it's the '80s and '90s again, and let the proof be when you see something on the shelf?

If you never see it, there's your proof it's not continuing.


Because we rarely ever see anything new on the shelf, it's always the same old Superman and Batman :?

I can't take much more disappointment. I really hope more JLU news comes ASAP.

I know in the past Mattel has had their own Toy Fair, in house at HQ in El Segundo. It's usually right around the fall Toy Fair.

The buyers come to them.

Hasbro did the same when I was there. The buyers came to them. Although I do remember one year they held their Fall Toy showing in Florida.

Is the size of the gun compensating for something else? :roll:
