Mattel's final two figures of their Young Justice action figure line have been canceled.
Those waiting for the final two-pack of Mattel's Young Justice line may have withdraw their money. Today, Mattel announced the cancellation of the two-pack. Their reason? Well lately Mattel has been doing tabs on their sales in the form of a meter that shows viewers of their website just how the pre-order sale of a figure is going. The YJ two-pack only made it 75% alas. Mattel released this statement along with the cancellation announcement:
Like you, we’re huge Young Justice fans. We watched the thermometer on the Miss Martian/Superboy 2-pack in the hopes we’d reach our production goal. The pre-order period was extended to 8/31 but even with the extension we didn’t hit the target so we won’t be going forward with producing the 2-pack. If you pre-ordered, look for your credit card refund in the next 7 business days.
This doesn’t mean the end of our beloved Young Justice characters! We did hear from many fans that they’d love to see these characters in other lines (like DCU 6” in comic-book style). We don’t have anything to announce right now, but we’re always looking to make the best product possible and deliver what fans want!
