There's something a little worrying hidden in there. What do you think?

that is a little worrying, but then what do u do? I want Adama and Starfire, but have no desire for Lex Ultraman. Im not going to spend the money just to help them keep the online sales alive....

I agree with Scream, I'm not likely to get the Lex/Ultraman set. I am interested to see what else they have up their sleeves though.

If bl**dy Mattel offered ALL their product online (even to international customers) then they wouldn't have any problems with sales volumes.

For fans like me, who tend to know only the main DCU characters, we couldn't care less about C and D listers like Lex (that version) and Ultraman, and to be honest, even Adam Strange and Starfire.

I am not surprised at all that sales volumes for the Lex 2 pack are poor, the figures (character designs) look ridiculous.

You are spot on the money Behemoth. I just got the Starfire/Adam Strange twinpack and it is sensationally presented but I mainly got it for Starfire because I was a big Teen Titans fan. To tell you the truth being predominantly a Marvel comics fan growing up I am not even familiar with Adam Srange. If they done all their two packs with a heavy hitter as one of them I am sure they would sell better and what is stopping them from offering their other stuff direct to overseas collectors. There are a lot of us here that would take up the offer. Maybe if a few of us email them our ideas and wants they might even listen being as they are predominantly a collectors outlet.

It would be great if Mattel would offer their other products, notably DCUC and JLU to (at least) international fans via mattycollector, especially considering the almost complete non-existence of local distribution in many areas.

I can somewhat understand not being able to offer the figures to US fans - and that does suck for them - but it doesn't make much sense to not offer their products to international fans when they appear completely uninterested in distributing their product "on the shelves".

I'm also only a "vague" DC fan - with my familiarity coming mostly from DC movies and the Justice League cartoon - but I'm still interested in obtaining "vanilla" versions of at least the original members of the Justice League (including both Aquaman and Hawkgirl) as well as the "junior" versions of the holy trinity (Robin, Batgirl, Supergirl, Superboy, Donna Troy, Wonder Girl).

Cheers.

LOL. New post from Matty at mattycollector.com.

Mattycollector will now be offering DCUC Wave 6 on their website.

For the moment, they'll only be selling cases (with extra Captain Marvel and Hawkman), but hope to offer the single DCUC figures in the future.

Will be very interested when they start releasing the single DCUC figures on their site.

Cheers.

wow that's great news! I wonder how their prices would compare to ordering through case fresh / overseas etailers, I would definately be interested in getting them through the matty store so long as the price was right, I got my starfire / strange 2 pack in great condition for a reasonable price (although it look a long time)

I think it's $120 US for a case of Series 12. If anyone orders one and has a spare Shazam and Hawkman, I would be interested!
