Saw a copy of next week's ToyFare today and the JLU news is as follows:

JLU will be Target exclusive starting this summer

There is a New Gods 6pk coming with three new characters in it: Forager, Mantis and Lashina along with Mr. Miracle, Superman and Darkseid.

JLU Question is coming.

At least 13 new characters along with some fan-requested repaints and redecos in the fall.

Lobo is still iffy. They are working on possibilities to get him made.

2009 will likely see a slew of animated style characters that were not on JLU along with the possibility of characters from former Timm-verse shows.

:shock:

I seriously hope this is for real.

The Question??

New Gods 6 pack??

My god I'm hyped. :D

Any way you can take a photo of the cover?

were there pictures in the book? Will we see characters at Toy Fair? A 6 pack without a "large" figure sounds weird, especially when Kalibak would fit in so nicely

The cover doesn't have any JLU images on it, though there is an image of the three new New Gods characters from the 6pk within the article/interview.

Not sure posting pictures from ToyFare is cool though? I think they frown on that kinda thing.

Yeah, you can't post interiors. I just wanted to see the cover to prove you had the mag so there won't be any lingering doubt and we can all let our guards down and celebrate this amazing news :D

I hope one of the repaints is an accurate Booster Gold with an accurate Skeets.

The New Gods 6 pack has some odd choices though, I wonder why they didn't put Kalibak in it. But still absolutely amazing. I love all the Fourth World characters; the more obscure the better.

How do they word the Question part exactly? Did they just get the rights to make him, or did they get the rights a while back and he's already in production?

If JLU is a Target exclusive, I think a lot of people will be pizzed off.

Lashina will make an awesome figure. The only more visually interesting female would be Silver Banshee. But Lashina is hotter :p

Guess I don't have to worry too much about not finding the Mr. Miracle 3-pack then. . .unless they assign this New Gods 6-pack the same DCPI number as the Grodd 6-pack. . . :lol:

I'm glad it is continuing, but that 6 pack is odd. I could live without Lashina and Forager. I would have liked Superman, Mr. Miracle, Darkseid, Mantis, Granny Goodness, and Kalibak.

As for Lobo, I would think that a Comicon exclusive would be the ideal way to make the figure. Exclusives aren't geared at kiddies.

Cool Airmax,

But, is that it? Or are you not giving it all up?
