A buddy of mine found these two at his local Target yesterday, so I decided to go out for a look this morning myself. Sure enough, there they were. My only question is, did I miss Fire & Ice or Mr. Miracle? I didn't get there at opening, so I wasn't sure if someone ahead of me grabbed those two or if they are shipping in another assortment soon to follow.

The pic isn't the best cuz I used my phone, but you get the idea. Time to start hitting the stores again for JLU...

Wasnt the JLords Hawkgirl a TRU Exclusive. Although past experience has shown that "exclusive" means nothing in the JLU line.

It was, yeah.

In their case, it looks like "exclusive" just means "first pick" or "exclusive for 2006" or something of the like. So she's no longer exclusive.

Good for anyone who didn't find her earlier, I suppose.

I want Fire & Ice!

I gave up on JLU a while back, but I would get that Lords 3 pack if only they would release the lords with the 5 PoA.

Exclusive agreements in most toy lines last only one year--- i.e. see every single star wars exclusive ever that wasnt an insane repaint.

Or such as the CARS wal mart exclusives--they will be in the regular line next year-- I think you could just call it exclusive packaging-- as usually and inclusion into a regular line involves a change in the marketing of it.

If I had to take a guess, I'd say you missed a purple carded Etrigan set. I'm not sure about this, however. Reason I say this is that I saw a purple Etrigan today at Target, but clearly, two three packs were missing, as I go in there every day and I have a good sense of what's there or not.

If I missed Fire and Ice, I'd be ticked off :wink:

Yeah, I have recently seen the purple-carded Superman/WW/Etrigan and Batman/Huntress/Atom sets back in rotation, along with the usual pegwarming Trinity and Batman/Zatanna/Knight sets.

That's exactly what I ran into this morning at a different Target.

One of my local Targets restocked recently with Joker/Black Canary, Etrigan, Huntress, Trinity.

At my other stores, the Zatanna/Shining Knight packs have seemingly sold out and been replaced by Etrigan and Dr. Light packs.

I would be happy to pick that JL Hawkgirl 3 pack again.

I've seen the KMART Xclusive SUPES / SUPERGIRL / STEEL 3 pack at Target as well.. a long time ago.

Different Target...This morning. Restock on JLU three-packs. One Etrigan pack, one Dr. Light/Aquaman pack, and one Atom/Huntress pack, along with a couple of trinity packs.

I don't think this exact case had any "new" new figures inside of it.

I don't care about any of those repaints of the same characters. I would like some new characters, please. The name of the cartoon was not Justice League LIMITED.

Maybe this is the re-branding that ToyGuru has been talking about. No new characters, repaints galore, and even more limited distribution.

Peace,

Chip :lol:
