I know it's only Day 2, so maybe some really BIG surprises are coming up ...and maybe I've been out of the loop and this is all there's going to be... but it seems to me, we're seeing nothing that we haven't already seen or been told about for the past year and a half! Where's Cheetah? Where's Captain Marvel? Yeah. I read about Firestorm in '09. Will we have to buy another Green Lantern and Batman in order to get him too?
I don't know but it seems like Mattel is throwing all their fire behind Infinite Heroes and leaving JLU to die the slow death its been dying. I haven't seen a line actively drive its collectors away like this since Masters of the Universe back in 2000.
Did anyone catch that Hal Jordan on display too? I think he was in a pic at another site. Oh, we can't buy him though! It's one of those rare Hal Jordans that were Mattel party favors a few years ago. Why display this and rub in the fact that Mattel still childishly refuses to produce a figure everyone has been clamoring for?
"What? People want a Hal Whatisname? Nah! Paint red stripes on Superman, package him with Wonder Woman and the Flash, and let them buy that instead!" ---Mr. Mattel, CEO, Mattel
