The folks at Mattel have sent word of the following:

"I'm excited to share some great news about Mattel's Justice League Unlimited line. Due to overwhelming support from the fans, Mattel and Target are teaming up to bring an all new Collector's Line to store shelves starting this August!

16 brand new figures along with collector requested repaints and reissues will be available in singles, 3-packs and 6 packs. Figures will be out in two waves. Each wave will consist of two 6-packs, two 3 packs and five single carded figures, some with brand new accessories. This line will be sold exclusively at Target stores starting Aug 1, 2008. At this time the line will be an in store exclusive only.

Wave 1 will be revealed at New York Comic Con in April and Wave 2 will be shown at Comic Con San Diego in July.

There may be a few other JLU surprises this year as well. But fans will just have to wait for the summer conventions to find out what!

We are pleased so show the first 6-pack for Wave 1: Attack from Apokolips featuring Superman, Darkseid, Mr. Miracle, Lashina, Mantis and Forager.

Along with these figures, we are excited to announce that the line will also include several major MIA characters including The Question!

*Note to collectors, these are not the final figures and we do plan to adjust Mantis' cape color and Forager's shield."

Wow, these don't suck. If they'd just fix the distribution problems, my money is yours, Mattel.

I was thinking today how the JLU line is the equivelant to the vintage MOTU line in terms of cheap remolds. Maybe this line has defied the odds and the market because all mattel generally has to do is sculpt a new head plus an accessory and change up the paint for new figures. It seemed to work pretty well for old school MOTU.

The dedication Mattel shows to this line is great! It is amazing how this line continues to endure. THank you so much Mattel for keeping this line going.

It has already been said that this line should have included a large Kalibak figure. If not that, Mattel should acquire the STAS Darkseid mold or do one similar.

My STAS Darkseid looks awesome with all the other JLU villians. Everyone else should have one as well.

I am always amazed at how long this line has lasted & that they keep on bringing out new stuff for it

Especially with Infinite Heroes coming, I don't think this line will last much longer. Even as a Target only line.
