Target’s 2008 Wave II JLU Singles
September 22, 2008

Two days before I moved I got a package in the mail from Mattel of the new wave of Justice League Unlimited figures.But that didn’t stop me from snapping a bunch of pictures of this new wave for you.  Normally this would be posted as a feature, but because of the move and unpacking the quickest way to get it posted was as a blog.   


  As you know the JLU line is now a Target exclusive line.  This new wave has some commonly released figures, but this go around they have been repainted or come with accessories that will make it hard for many fans to resist.   The photography on the card back is interesting to me as the pictures of Sinestro, Wonder Woman and Bizarro all show their accessories, but Superman and Batman do not show their anticipated, included accessories.





Batman with Wonder Pig






Superman with Phantom Zone Projector

The Superman figure in this wave is the 9 Point-Of-Articulation version so that he can properly hold his accessory. 








Wonder Woman



Sinestro Corps Sinestro

The Sinestro Corps version of Sinestro is another significant release in that is it a great sensible repaint, but not a version that ever appeared in the show. 






Thanks to Mattel for letting us post these!

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,,, 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.
