JLU – The Final Figures – Vandal Savage, Future Superman, Batman
September 16, 2012

We’re another month in to the final countdown of Mattel’s Justice League Unlimited line.   This is the third in the final six 3-packs of figures featuring 2 new figures and one re-release.  New in this set are villain (and former caveman) Vandal Savage and  (recent caveman) Future Superman.  The re-issue is a repaint of Batman.  This pace is based on the Justice League second season episode “Hereafter” from 2004.

Savage has a new head, torso and arms.  He has no accessories (as is common in most of the 3-packs.

Future Superman has a new head, arms and overpiece.

Savage is a little on the short side, using the Lex Luthor boot legs.  The torso is wide giving him good bulk so can still stand up to Superman. Savage was a must have figure on many fan’s top 10 lists so it’s great that we were able to get him before the closing of the line.

I really dig the Future Superman figure.  I always enjoyed the original concept of the 3-packs that made them episode specific.  If we have to get a variant of a main character, it’s good to get a show specific one.

This set will be available to order 9/17 on MattyCollector.com for $30.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
