Why should i buy an action figure set an an exclusive price for the sake of just spending money, because Mattel is not smart enough to make characters that people want. Would you buy a car you didn't like from GM just to support the company from failing? If a company makes a crappy product that people do not want... then it makes no sense to support it.
Personally, I'm glad this is an online exclusive... that way everyone who wants one I'm sure will have plenty of oppurtunity to purchase. If this was for retail..we would be looking at 2 pegwarmers. But if by not buying this set, Mattel threatens not to make more figures... then tough for mattel.
Everyone spends their money differently, and that's fine, but don't be suckered by that ridiculous "fear" statement.
People made the same argument for the Target exclusive UBP Sarlac pit, (I liked it so i bought it for the 54.00) but many people hated it, and if they did then they absolutely should not have bought it. That will keep these companies from becoming lazy (like in the JLU line which deserves to fail, for it's cheap production method of reused bodies) or from overpricing (only suckers bought the Starwars UBP's for $75).
My philosophy in collecting is buy what you like for a price you want it at, if the line fails then so be it... don't get bullied.

Ultraman is the Superman of the anti-matter universe. In his universe, villains populate the earth and Alexander Luthor is the only super hero. His son is Alexander Luthor Jr, the hero of the first Crisis and main villain of Infinite Crisis. I believe these versions are "Earth 3" versions, pre and present first Crisis.
The current Ultraman is dead. He became a vampire in Final Crisis after being destroyed by Mandrakk.
