The reason I'm buying them is because of Batman: Brave and the Bold. I loved the cartoon, and I wanted the figures, even with the hex holes. That's pretty much the determining factor for me: If I like the property the figures are based on. (So yes, I bought B:TAS, S:TAS, JL, JLU, Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice, etc.) (No, I don't consider liking the Timmverse to mean I can't like B:B&B -- different interpretations, which I enjoyed in different ways.) To me, this is a continuation of the B:B&B line, and as such, I'll buy it. Even the hex/no hex thing doesn't trouble me that much. Grodd didn't have hex holes, for example.


Well stated. That's how I feel about this line. And even though this line is called Justice League, I still consider it as a continuation of the BATB line also.
Now if they would release the Gentleman Ghost and Faceless Hunter figures in this line somehow, that would put an even bigger smile on my face :wink: .
Shazam would be great also, but it would probably be a New 52 design, don't really like that look, but in figure form, it might look alright :| .

JLU was what got me following Daniel's posts, but I think a read through this (the photo links aren't working right, you'll have to click on each to see the whole image) leaves little to argue about...

http://thefwoosh.com/2012/01/dc-univers ... rospective.

The Unofficial JLU checklist puts the JLU figure count at 234. Two-hundred thirty five if you consider Wonder Pig as a different character. So it's still a pretty impressive run and probably as close to a "complete" DC Universe as most of us will ever get.

So can we get back to discussing the *NEW* Target Justice League line?...

Sorry about that. It's just that these boards have been the paragon of activity ever since JLU Infinite Heroes ended. :twisted:
So I went ahead and stirred up the pot to see if some old faces showed up. I mean... honestly, has anyone heard from Joel lately??!?!?!?
Me thinks he slipped on the tub and his dog ate him!!! :shock:

It's happened before! True story, swear to Zod!!! :P

I've said it before, if this line continues the best bet is Shazam, because they already have the tooling. Plus they can easily adapt the new 52 design without the hood. Plus if I was a betting man I'd say if we get another female it will be Catwoman. I was also looking at the other figures they could repaint a get away with is Atom he could easily be done over as the "Baz" the gun wielding Green lantern. I'd also kill for a Hawkman vs Gentleman Ghost pack.

WOW! I like her eyes and lips much better than the one featured in our exhibit. I have since examined in-person (8) additional sets around Richmond, VA and they all looked identical to the one I purchased originally. Amazing how much variation there is on this!

The two sets at the Target I was at today -- was one of each (I grabbed the one that does not look like yours)-- so it is definitely a legitimate production "variant"-in the same case- though Im sure not intentional..

He made a post a couple of days ago but it wasn't in Mattel-All so I'm not surprised it wasn't seen.

I still exist. I've now made 3 posts in the last 5 months. Don't have much to talk about anymore.

I picked up the set today at a Target here in LA. I had to have the Wonder Woman for my collection.
I may get a second set to give to me 4 year old nephew. I love the idea that this "kids" line features a female unlike most lines that don't.

@stewbacca - very interesting! Based on how I'm tracking the distribution of the set between collectors and seeing what shows up on eBay, etc, so far KY is the farthest East that the variant face for Wonder Woman has been spotted. Prior to your report, it seemed it was only showing up in TX and farther Westward. Very intriguing indeed. We're going to include a question about this in our Ask Matty this month, and see if we get any official confirmation back.

Just to keep the tracking consistent, I found four of the box sets, eight of the singles, and six of the motorcycle sets last night at a Target. I bought the Batman motorcycle, because Brave and Bold never got one out and my Batman needs a Batcycle, although one with a sidecar (and Robin) would be better.

They actually did release a Batcycle in the Brave and the Bold toy line and it also came with a sidecar like you mentioned as well. You can see it in the link below.

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this but have any of you seen the tags on the pegs where it says
5-Pack Justice League 15.99? Not sure what this can be and for that cheap. Maybe action League figures?

I found these right above the Justice League motorcycles with Batman and Superman.

I think the $15.99 price tags are for the motorcycle sets...
