See I think these Action Leagues will end up like the Lantern / Knightfall 2 packs and shipping to only Canada. I think TRU knows what they are doing and shipped them all up there.

Odd-- since this is what happened with the Last wave of Adventure Heroes, and Combat Heroes, and Indiana Jones, and I even think SHS--

(although the SHS last 4 packs went to Europe only)


Is there a reason that the toy companies always release the remaining product outside their biggest customer base.

Yeah, they sent me a sample of the 5-pack over a month ago. They definitely went to manufacture.


You have the GL Movie Action League 3-packs, too, don't you? Those haven't show up anywhere that I know of.

These showed up at Ollie's , which is a closeout chain in the US. There's one in my area that had them, I think they were around $7.

I have no idea Ollie's got the movie versions? Do they still have them? Or was it from last year?

I would bet money that the person means the GL comic packs NOT the movie packs. THe comic packs did hit Wal-mart and are at Five Below right now. I have never seen carded movie series GL Action Legaue

I actually have the movie stuff carded (well it was carded) came from an ebay seller for like $20 shipped so I'm pretty sure he found them at closeout.

Figures weren't impressive due to the movie designs but the add on ring constructs are incredible.

In case anyone missed it, Matty Justice League actually bothered to answer some forum questions for once and said that action league has no future plans for new product. Also, they said they shipped Larfleeze and Atom to retailers.

If that's the case are they up for preorder anywhere or do you think they'll go straight to close out ?

The certainly have been up to a lot of fail.

MOTU - struggling
DC anything (DCU, JLU, YJ, DCIH, Action League) - struggling or dead
WWE - Legends dead
Ghostbusters - died?
Cars 2 - clogging the pegs

Can they get anything right anymore? Maybe they should just stop making toys altogether?

Or maybe Monster High and Barbie are kicking ass. That's where the money is these days, I guess - girl's toys.

Barbie and Hot Wheels is really all they got going for them now. They fail at everything else.

My wallet is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. If the MotUC and DC subs fail, no Action League, YJ, and DCUC at retail, after the December JLU Matty offering I might be done with Mattel. I've been on the fence about Marvel Universe lately too so I might actually be able to save some cash.

TRU Canada has the 5pack 'In Stock' and available for shipping, however, they won't ship to a non-Canada address.

If any of our fellow Canadian members would be willing to act as the go between for me to get this pack to my son I would greatly appreciate it.
