Jeeze. Well so much for that. I thought these (4" line) were nice little figures. Funny thing is YJ never really had much of a presence in my area. They never once showed up at my closest Walmarts.

I would like to know if Artemis, Superman and Green Lantern singles already appeared on the US shelves. Does anyone here ever found them?

Sucks. Well thanks to Tuning4k for helping a brother out as I was able to complete my Hall of Justice. Hopefully that last wave with Artemis comes out.

Even if you didn't collect this line its a pretty disturbing trend for DC character figures.This does not give me hope to see any Green Lantern animated figures at all.
I never collected this line,I'm a JLU guy, but I expected it to go farther than it did.

My thoughts (word for word) exactly.

Wonder what Mattel's takeaway from this will be?

A. We should be careful about pricing four-inch figures at $10 and six-inch at $20.

B. We should really re-think any sculpt that is off-putting to collectors and unplayable for kids.

C. The retailers and toy-buying community just failed to support us.

I was really looking forward to Lagoon Boy. Amazo is a nice figure.

D. Maybe Cartoon network shouldn't wait 7+ months between new episodes.

(&*#&^@*&*^!!!! :evil: So close to getting Batgirl. But this is what I've been afraid of for quite a while. I still have never seen stealth KF or Aqualad in the wild. Such a shame. :(

I read some of their answers on the Matty Forum.

Since Mattel has tooled some of the 4" and 6" figures, they will offer some on Mattycollector to try and make some money back from the tooling.

DC All-Stars is cancelled, and the 4 figures, DCnU Superman, DCnU Batman, Red Robin and Superboy Prime may wind up as DCUC wave 21.

No more DC Universe for 2012. A new 6" line for 2013 will appear for both Mattycollector and Retail.

Mattel DC Figures at Retail for 2012
The Dark Knight Rises
Batman Power Attack

Mattycollector will have the 6" DC Club Infinite Earths figures.

There is no retailer interest in a Green Lantern Animated toyline at this time.

I was one of the biggest haters of this line when it debuted. I thought the hands were incredibly stupid and it was essential replacing my favorite line ever. However, I had really grown to like them when I was getting my HOJ together for the Action League figures (which might as well be cancelled too. Haven't seen a new one in MONTHS). I wish I could say I was surprised but I'm not. The same old problems from JLU were there from the start on YJ. Price was too high, distribution sucked, character selection sucked (too many repeats), and case packs sucked. They NEEDED wave 3 to be a big seller, and not only did it feature 3 repaints, but it also turned into a split case which brought MORE wave 1 to the pegs. The line had no chance.

I'm also extremely disappointed that we won't finish the young league and we won't get even close to the adult league. How bad is it to get a DC line canceled before you can even get to Superman and Wonder Woman? Is that a record?

I wonder if that will include just the latest wave of 4 in. or also the Captain Marvel/Batgirl figures we saw leaks of?

And I bet that DCIE sub looks a little better to some people now.

I hope so. I was really looking forward to that Batgirl, Red Tornado, and Captain Marvel.
