No we don't.

Superman, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern, and Batman all had the articulated elbows and knees. I was really hoping Mattel would eventually give us 5POA versions of them, but now it'll never happen. Would have been nice to get 5POA repaints in some of the 3-packs instead of the same plain ol' Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern that took up too many of those slots and discouraged greater sales of the 3-packs.


Yes, we have Flash, Hawkgirl and Wonder Women though is what I meant. I'd be up for the others with 5 POA though as I never really liked any of the 9 POA figures. They never display quite right.

My list would be completely different from the one in An-gel's post the exact reason why I would not buy a sub. From that list I'd prolly get any LOSH, Granny, Poison Ivy and Killer Crock and that is it.

My hope is they will just release a new 3 pack every now and then if the JSA and Space 3 packs sell out. I think they will do better then STRIPE.

This Club Infinite Earths could have more meaning than we realize - this DCUC Sub could be a way for us to "prove" to Mattel that we are willing to buy into a Sub program, and maybe sway them into giving JLU another chance online. Yes, it would likely be expensive, but I'd rather do that then get nothing. Besides putting the remaining TF figures in there, we could see more new figures from the Want Lists that we all gave up on long ago.

crazy? Or genius? :shock:

CRAZY. You are asking them to take advantage of you like a battered wife. IF they do this the prices will be INSANE!

Personally I think this is a horrible idea because they WILL screw it up if they did it.

I was personally glad to get out of that abusive " relationship" & content that the JLU line is done & over with. I was sick of dealing with mattel's incompetence & outright lies over the years. If there was a sub, then I would have to deal with mattel's idiotic moves & digital river's, also. No Thanx! May the JLU figure line stay dead forever, or at least until a different company gets the animated license!

My problem with a JLU sub ends up being cost, just like the Club IE. We'll be paying 15+ bucks per JLU figure when it's all said and done. They simply aren't worth that.

15 dollars will be the shipping alone! The figures will probably be $20 knowing Mattels greedy asses and it would end up being a bunch Groddamned rehash repaints of freakin Superman and Batman!

NO THANKS!

I think I need to start a subscription figure service for the stuff I create. I guarantee there wouldn't ever be any rehashed nonsense in that sub. All my kits are new, interesting and never before done. Come check em out http://geekvarietycustoms.dchallofjustice.com/

LOL, trust me man, I dream about the JLU going forward, and I am making it happen the best way I can. I just honestly don't trust Mattel. It sucks, but there is too much bad blood built up and as much as I want this to happen and crave new figures going forward, I'm not prepared to bend over and take it like they are likely to want to give it :D

If they got full access to all DC characters and released a proper Hal Jordan, Black Manta and about a half million other characters they glossed over like the Ultimen (COMING SOON TO GEEKVARIETY CUSTOM STORE!) , the Teen Titans (also coming soon?!) then I might gain back some interest, but til I hear something along those lines then I am still down on the whole idea.

Its a once bitten twice shy kinda deal til they do something to mend wounds and rebuild bridges.

I was annoyed that this thread was resurrected when it was most irrelevent but when I saw it was bumped by a mod my annoyance turned to disgust. C'mon, Superfly. Really?
