A JLU Summary Of What We Can Expect From Mattel In 09
DC Comics: Jay Cochran - 2009.01.04
Mattel has released this short summary of what we can expext from their JLU line-up in 2009.

Coming to Target stores in 2009:
20 singles
8 3-packs
4 6-packs (Fall only similar to 2008 release schedule)

At Mattycollector.com
4 4-packs (one per quarter)
1 Convention Exclusive

Other things we can expext to see in over the course of the year will be Wave 3 figures (3 packs Cheetah and Batman Beyond) and singles (Green Lantern, Booster Gold, Ultraman, Dr. Fate and Parasite) - plus some more Sinestro Corps Uniform and Batman with Wonder Pig in the case packs which should be out soon.

Shown below in the IMAGE GALLERY are carded images of the JLU Gotham Criminals 4-pack wich goes on sale at Mattycollector.com on February 15, 2009. Even those these are being labled as a 4-pack it appears they will come on single cards and just ship as 4.

Also shown below is the Target exclusive Batman Beyond and Criminals 3-packs along with single carded figures for wave 3 and 4.


UPDATE: Mattel has released this additional information for the upcoming 6-packs:

The 2009 JLU 6 packs will be all new and offered in the fall released in a similar fashion to the 2008 packs. We will have 4 different packs in 2009 but will not be rereleasing the 2008 packs.

I don't have a problem with the line it self but the release date on the 6-packs kinda sucks. They want to release all of them in November? I not sure why they wont release two of them earlier in the year, then two around the holidays. I would think that they would get better sales that way...

I understand they came from the cartoon design and I don't have a problem with that. But it just seems to me it is a matter of "quantity over quality". A lot of the female characters share bodies, for example. They can afford to get out so many characters because they ARE little... read more

[quote name='muppethost' post='16528367' date='Jan 5 2009, 12:08 PM']Anyway, that's the appeal...at least for me. Couldn't agree more. What they lack individually, they certainly make up for as a group. Diversity is a big thing to me, & unless you're talking Star Wars i... read more
