Mattel announced on their Facebook page the following information in regards to their JLU figure packs which are starting to show up at discount stores:
In order to make sure Target had fresh case packs at the end of the year, some of the older case packs Target had not taken yet were released to discount stores (which includes the Mattel Toy Store open to the public at 333 Continental Blvd, 90245).
The good news for fans looking for the Cheetah and Batman Beyond packs is that some of these master cartons include these two packs. (they also included Fire and Ice, Question and Captain Atom packs, so you can see why Target would not prefer these.) If we sent them to Target, the Cheetah and Bat packs would be scooped up quick leaving the older packs on shelf to peg warm preventing any new case packs from making out - get it?
Like we've said, shipping toys to retail is not an exact science, but hopefully by releasing these case packs to discount stores it will at least get the product out there for fans to find!
And for those asking why we do not sell them on MattyCollector.com, again the answer is simple. We could clearly sell the Cheetah pack but their is not much market for the older packs which also come in this master carton and the best place to move complete master cartons is at discount stores.
