Just typed Gleek into eBay search, and sure enough, there's a pre-order auction going on for the a Twins & Gleek...$119.99 + $10 for shipping and handling.

Boy, was I over-reacting. Seems it will be very easy to get at a reasonable price.


I'm not the biggest supporter of scalping but I see why people do it. If collector's are stupid enough to pay those ridiculous prices (and I've done it a few times myself) then there's no reason to stop doing it. This Gleek example may be far fetched but it's only a taste of what's to come as SDCC approaches.



thats what im saying! sad thing is.....a lot of scalpers are collectors too.

in the original post by jay mattel did in a round about way ask people to buy up old stok i know i am getting old but i am not going cray. I know what i read. They just say they ment this or that because it pissed people off. I really just wish mattel would die and another more capable company would take there place

I am so sick of there two faceness and back tracking and we said this but ment this. Holy hell....

honestly they are the funniest shaped figs i ever saw but if they were shaped any different i wouldnt buy them because they wouldnt be examples of the show. i even collected BTAS figs whenit was on for the same reason only kenner made them. i am a marvel guy but i do have to say that the way bthey connected all the shows including bb it had to be the best animated i have seen.

JLU is one of the best cartoons I've ever watched. It's truly awesome. It's such a shame we didn't get more episodes. Actually, it's more like a travesty than just a shame.

That said, I still can't bring myself to buy those 3-packs hanging at Target. If they were good 3-packs, I'd do it, but two different 3-packs that both have the same Green Lantern figure in them is ridiculous.

Unfortunately Justice League is a victim of it's own quality. It's not like you can just reuse the same shots of your hero web-slinging through the city...oh wait, you can, it just looks like crap. Those shows are really hard to make and the creators like to try different stuff. I'm sure there were other factors as well.

The three packs have moved a little in my area, though the new Wave 3 stock is selling well. That's not the sign they wanted, but it's still a good sign.

actually the show was considered a true sucess, spanning from several adaptations from btas to jlu. the show started as justice league and ended as jlu which made sense because they were able to capitalize on all the characters they could produce which after the show was canceled they are still doing. i would call that sucess.

Thanks for the history lesson that I already knew. What's your point? The creators were getting tired and wanted to do something else plus the fact that it was of such high quality that it cost a lot of money to produce. That's code for Cartoon Network wanted to spend money on different shows.
