Well, $30 is a lot better than $50. Maybe I can swing that.

And Dr. Destiny and Firefly is cool, BUT, they took out the orange/green Aquaman. Grrrr.

Why can't they just re-release Aquaman, Volcana, and the other 9 guys from the 6-packs?

The Aquaman would have been nice but I'm really shocked that Firefly and Destiny will see the light.

So glad to know they're going to release the final figures. Not getting Aquaman released seems odd. They could have swapped out one of the other reissue figures. But I'm certainly not complaining.

Glad we're finally getting them at all. Can't wait to add them to my collection, and good to know Firefly and Dr Destiny will be joining them.

Man, the nightmare just never ends.

:P



But seriously, congrats guys.

Now how about some "thank you, Matty/Toyguru" comments instead of more complaining.

Yep. Thank you ToyGuru. I had pretty much given up hope of ever seeing official releases. Now I know exactly what to customize.

I've been looking at the facebook feeds, especially over on save the JLU, and I agree. While it's about 85% thank you's and cheers, there are still people going on about Aquaman, or Volcana, or more figures.

I mean. REALLY? REALLY? This is what everyone fought for. At least Aquaman is out there, we're getting Firefly and Destiny. Anyone complaining is just too much.

I'm psyched we are getting these, and at a decent price. Yes, I'm very OK with the price tag. I'm in awe and embarrassed that anyone could still complain.

I think Mattel and everyone involved with JLU needs a huge round of applause, they deserve it to be able to put it up with all of us! Round of applause to everyone who voted here and Custom Justice polls (it seemed like it helped). Thank you ToyGuru, nothing but respect for you!

I came into today thinking what new YJ I will see but the JLU news has me in total shock! Now I'm going to go to my JLU collection and tell them all the good news (okay not really).

Holy crap...we did it guys! We fought hard and got what we wanted! Big thanks to all the people that helped us get these figures! I'm even more pleasantly surprised that these will only be $30! I've been pretty negative at times about this line but I can't believe some people are still complaining. You guys had your chance to get Aquaman. If you want him that bad, pay the big bucks for him on eBay.

You'll hear no complaints from me, as the news is both surprising and most welcome! Very impressed with TG and Mattel for this reveal. Also, impressed that they were able to get the price down to something a little more reasonable in regards to the collector's wallets. $30 is a lot easier to let go of than $50...

Awesome news!

Thanks TG, great job!

AND... glad I didn't spend $1000 for Firefly or $800 each for the other figures!
:shock:

Blue Beetle, Guy Gardner, Toyman, Vandal Savage, Mongul, Static, Aquagirl, Micron, Fire and Future Superman for $300.00

or

Blue Beetle, Guy Gardner, Toyman, Vandal Savage, Mongul, Static, Aquagirl, Micron, Fire, Future Superman, Dr. Destiny and Firefly for $180.00

Yeah, anyone complaining now is doing too much. Take the extra $120 you saved to get Aquaman off Ebay. You're still up two figures that were never going to get made.

Never, never thought to hear this news, and for 40% less than I thought it would be. Good work, Mr. Guru.
