Mattel Early Look – JLU 3-Pack Featuring Blue Beetle / Fire / Booster Gold
November 14, 2012

The quest for righteousness continues with this 3-pack based on the Justice League International Team. Complete your collection with these essential figures in distinctive Justice League Unlimited style, including the first-ever Ted Kord Blue Beetle and his best bud Booster Gold. Also comes with supermodel turned super hero Fire, in a fan-demanded repaint featuring the Brazilian beauty “fired up” with clear green skin!

The final JLU packs are winding down.  We’re in the home stretch with just 2 sets left after this one.  This month we get the Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Fire (Translucent) 3-pack.  This limited edition set has one new figure, one re-release and one, what might be considered a repaint.

Blue Beetle is the new figure in the 3-pack.  He has one of the standard bucks with a new head.  While the Ted Kord version of Blue Beetle never appeared on the JLU show he did make a few appearances in the Justice League Unlimited comic book and had an animated appearance on Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

The Booster Gold figure in the pack we have gotten before at the tail-end of the retail offering.  This is the corrected paint colors of the 2nd release not the copper and black colors of the first version.
The 3 pack is completed with the translucent version of Fire.  Fire was available previously in a 3-pack several years ago. Now she is updated, cast in translucent plastic in her fire mode.

Personally, I’ve been waiting on a Blue Beetle in this line for years.  I bought a custom one about 3 years ago as I didn’t think he’d be made in the line.  Today the custom gets rotated out and the real deal takes his rightful place in the line-up.

This set will be available 11/15 on for $30.

Here’s a look at what you will get when you order –

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 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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
