Nah. Been that way for 52 years, JL/JLA...same thing. Not a mistake.

They were never referred to the Justice League Unlimited ever. The only team to take that name was the incarnation of the league featuring Batman Beyond, Superman, Wonder Woman, Micron, Kai-Ro, Warhawk, Aquagirl, and Barda. Whether it was just the original 7, or the entire expanded league, they were simply referred to as the Justice League. JLA isn't really a difference. Outside of DCAU continuity its the JLA or the new 52 just goes by Justice League. Is it really necessary to poke fun at mattel for doing something they probably intended to do? JLA and Justice League? Same flipping thing

Unless you're Justice League: Europe or Justice League Taskforce or Justice League Antarctica or . . .

Oy vey...

One last chance to dogpile! Quick! Pounce! :P

At least the term "JLU" was used in the DCAU. "JLA" never has been. But if I'm going to play devil's advocate, I suppose the name "Legion of Doom" was never used either, and yet that's exactly what we all knew it was and I happily accepted its appearance on packaging.

I guess I never like the "of America" because it sounded so elitist. Diana isn't American, as far as we know. Hawkgirl certainly never got residency! J'onn spent most of his time in Orbit. And their missions were not limited to the USA. So I stand by my opinion and invite you to merrily dogpile me if my two cents really truly upset you.

After all - it's your last chance! 8)


LONG LIVE THE JL.....O?

Doesn't upset me in the least. I respect your opinion on the matter but I think it's just being a little picky and basically one last chance at giving Mattel the bird for not bending over and giving you everything you wanted like Hippolyta. Like 10 years of figures wasn't enough :roll:

They did refer to the "Legion of Doom" as the Secrety Society Right? Just a question not a nitpick or anything.

They never call it the legion of doom. Yet, they mentioned on the Season DVD pack. It's obviously the legion because of the headquarters and the core roster is almost identical to the Warner Bros version. I wanted Hippolyta too, but I was grateful for what we got.

Call it what you will, I'm not letting a small little thing like the end of the Toy line stop me from completing the bad guys too.

Those are some badass custom villains in your collection. I wish a lot of those were officially released figures but that's nothing new for JLU fans.

So I ordered my final 3-pack... Here's to hoping that nostalgia brings this line back to sporadically releasing the occasional figure. I mean, JLU was a great show. You can't really say that about most (any?) cartoon-based toy lines.

An-Gel, that Crowbar figure is all manner of awesome! In addition to the other customs, but for some reason Crowbar really stood out.

I look at that picture, then think back how the four-packs failed on Matty, and try not to think of the figures we could have had every three months if they sold better.

Looking at An-Gel's group shot there makes me realize.

Holy CRAP I've got to get busy on customs lol. An-Gel, I think you've accumulated a custom from just about every notable customizer still working. Very impressive.

And I'll insert a shameless plug here. Be sure to check out the custom wiki. Growing every day.
