Mattel Cancels Young Justice Lines & Issues Statement On DCU All-Stars
Mattel has let it slip through their Mattycollector message boards
last week that they have canceled their 4" & 6" Young Justice lines
due to lack of demand. This would seem to be yet another casualty in Mattel's DC Comics based toy lines.
It was recently announced
the 6" DC Universe Classics All-Star line was also getting scrubbed and that only one wave was going to be released at retail. Mattel has also released an official statement
in regards to that line:
"DC Universe is going away after 2012 and there'll be one more wave of 4. In 2013, we'll be relaunching our 6" with complimentary offerings on Matty and at Mass. You guys will be able to complete your collection and I hope you'll like what we are doing. We've taken lessons from DC Universe and Legacy. Overall, we need to adjust to retailers, consumers and what's selling in volumes that can be supported.
As far as the character that we showed but haven't released, most of them have been tooled so we'll be looking for a way to release them in one form or another. However, I can't 100% guarantee that."
