I just couldn't justify nearly $40 for one new figure. I'm going to be waiting out these last packs in the hope of getting all of them at once and combining shipping. Patience has served me well so far with JLU! Aside from those two 6 packs…I got screwed there.

$40 dollars for one figure is a lot of money, no argument here. But if you really want that figure, and find a way to get it around the $30 price range (through a friend or ebay)... I suggest you take it. 'Cause a casting of Mongul is going to cost more and prices on these figures could fluctuate like crazy (case in point: STAS Aquaman & Volcana.)

Plus, lately... Matty has taken on the bad habit of increasing the base price of figures before putting them up for sale. At least that was the case with the Con-Exclusives. That is... Matty changed the price from $20 to $22 dollars before offering a 10% discount. So when all was said and done, those who waited ended up paying $19.80 instead of $20.

Anyways... just a thought.

Just to give a heads up, the Mongul three pack is actually selling well, "but not good enough to justify more new tooling" -ToyGuru

So those wondering if the "Almost Gone" label is just a warning before being removed for the SDCC sale, it's not.


Now If I can take the words quoted above & run with it......

"NOT good enough to justify MORE NEW tooling" .....

So good thing #1. VOLCANA v2.0 does NOT need MORE NEW tooling! & b4 everyone tells me about all te artwork, developement, safety testing, ect..... I already know that I'm just entertaining my Fanboy's delusional WISH of a cool VILLAINS or SECRET SOCIETY 6-7 pack for characters that would not need MORE NEW tooling, just NEW paintjobs/schemes!

So again, I KNOW this has no chance of ever happening unfortunately, but I would LOVE a VILLAINS 7-pk w/ all the pictures of the villains on the box like the last JLU Final Card Holder's 7-pk.

So heres my PRETEND 7-pk. w/ only new paint & mashups of parts:

1. VOLCANA v2.0
2. TATTOO MAN
3. LUMINOUS
4. MAJOR DIASTER
5. JAVELIN
6. The TOP
7. BLUE LAMA



You forgot about Lady Lunar and Tsukuri. That's the rest of the secret Society pretty much.
But there are other villains needed like Circe, You can easily make a 3 pack with Circe, Wonder Woman, and Hippolyta. That would sell amazingly.

Ok I love JLU but Toyguru said no changes could be made ? Well then why does the back of the package feature and add for Mattycollector and says final JLU figures? Not trying to be that guy but its just like insane why bother advertising the site that sells these when its the only place to get them some ipso facto you own the 3 pack you went on Mattycollector. Just a little annoying cause I would have prefer to pay like $25 for Mongul single carded. Next months 3 pack is a much better deal.

I'm glad I went ahead and got Mongul. Having a new pack in my hand reminded me how much I love this line.

Does this mean it's "Gone for Good", or just
the stock immediately available for shipping?

At the very least there should be some customer service stock which could be sold off later provided there isn't a lot of defective/returned product now.

NO CHANGES CAN BE MADE! lol But yet when this was decided the packages were either printed or reprinted to say final JLU figures on them. It's not just a sticker that was added either. So I'm sure they could have made that packaging anyway they wanted. They already had approval for STAS Aquaman & Volcana since they've been produced once before. Very easily could have thrown them in one of the 3 packs instead of duplicates. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful to be getting Mongul, Toyman, & Firefly the most. But I am still quite annoyed to be missing that Aquaman from my collection.

It means either:
A- Matty has indeed sold out of all remaining stock for the Mongul pack, minus any small amounts held back for QC purposes. Or...

B- Matty has listed them as Sold Out in order to pull them from the site prematurely for whatever strange reason. Matty logic applies here, of course, and they do this all of the time.
