Who else is excited? This pack has really snuck up on us but I'm glad it's finally here! Who's getting it? Let's discuss.

You and me both. I don't want these to end after the Shazam pack.

I agree...I'm just praying the next one is the Flash Rogues pack with Capt Cold, Capt Boomerang, Trickster and Heatwave. How sweet would that be??? I think it would be a sure fire seller!!


Bring on the LEGION!!!

I want to get mine today, but a friend of mine had to go and be born this week many years ago so money's a little tight till I get paid again, so I'm sadly going to have to wait until next week to get mine. I hope it doesn't sell out but if it does I'd be happy in a way, just because JLU could use a big hit. If I have to go the ebay route for waiting I'm cool with that.

When do they go on sale? I remember reading somewhere on here that it's at noon.

It's noon eastern time today. And I'm ready - been waiting on this one as well. Hopefully they won't have the problems with the site that they had for Merman. :?

I am very excited and will certainly be buying this 4 pack today, as I plan on buying every JLU figure.

But this leads the question; How important is the sale of this 4 pack going to be for mattel regarding the future of the JLU line and its presence on Mattycollector.com?

It seems as though Gotham Villains 4 Pack did not do great. Hopefully more units will be purchased along with the LOSH pack. But if sales flounder on this pack as well, will Mattel be willing to continue these 4 packs on Matty. No reason to be concerned yet, but just thinking ahead.

How important are sales of this 4 pack for Mattel?

I think that the reason that the Gotham 4 pack didn't do so well is because you gave collectors just one really exciting new figure and 3 that, although really cool, didn't get people going. To be honest though I would have spent $30 on just the Scarecrow figure from that pack. That is the one I really wanted, and the other 3 were like a free bonus to me.


This group is different, I want all 4.

I would get more than one set. But the Mrs. would not approve it as its not in the budget but she knows I'm ordering one today and I'll finally get a set of JLU stands. So its noon eastern. Sweet. Less than two hours away.

I am so excited about this 4 pack. For some reason it seems Mattel has been hesitant to make Legion and JSA packs. They'll even go so far as to make Eiling and Waller it seems. I've been waiting a loooooong time for these and I'm so glad they are here.
I really hope that these and any JSA/Golden Age things sell thru the roof, I'd like Mattel to see that there is a huge market for both the Legion and the JSA.
I will be shocked if these don't outsell the Gotham pack by a substantial margin.

For those that are unaware

The Gotham JLU 4pack is still available as well. Maybe we will see a sell-out from those that are waiting to "save on shipping" by combining orders...

I had forgotten about this coming out today. I was concentrating on Zodac. I'm not a big fan of Legion, but I'm always happy to add new JLU characters to my collection and to support the line. :D

Well here's the message I get when I log onto the site:

Glad you’re here at MattyCollector.com, your source for the cool toys you love. Due to an overwhelming response, there’s a slight delay in processing your request.

This page will refresh every 3 seconds. Once the high traffic levels subside, you’ll be returned to the page you were previously viewing. I’m sorry for any inconvenience.

-Matty

Although it's fustrating. I guess that means there is quite the demand for these. Hopefully I can get a set before they sell out.

No - it means that there is once again a high demand for the MOTU figures and Mattel didn't increase the bandwidth. Or didn't increase it enough. I don't believe that LoSH will sell out like Zodac will, but it is a bit frustrating. *sigh*
