Mattel Cancels Young Justice Lines & Issues Statement On DCU All-Stars
DC Comics: Jay Cochran - 2012.04.10
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."

Wel MU is clogging the shelves all over AL including the good Rogers waves. Yet ML are selling out pretty fast minus IM, Drax, and Klaw. Even Bucky Cap has started dwindling down. Draven

[quote name='Goldbug' timestamp='1334111829' post='16754609'] That is your [i]opinion[/i]. 6 inchers peg warm here. Marvel Universe sells out when there are new waves. The new Legends figures haven't moved at all here. It's when they mess up on basic modern arti... read more

Not surprice about this beening cancelled at my work we still have alot of YJ figures that nobody is touching and yes I agree it has to do with the price to them. Infact today I was at Target and they had the Catwoman that I wanted from the Batman series but when I saw the price I put her back. Ther... read more

[quote name='jahue' timestamp='1334109714' post='16754603'] I completely agree. I hate 4 inch lines. Yeah I loved my joes and star wars growing up, but other than that I have never touched the smaller lines. In fact, I wish those two properties would release 6 inch lines.... read more

Well, I think a region where 4 inch figures move more than the 6 inchers is rare and unsual. Hey, if the new Legends haven't moved I need a Steve Rogers figure. Also when did Cartoon Network announce that Thundercats are cancelled, I haven't heard anything stating that. I hope this isn&... read more
