Mattel Ends Young Justice and Cancels DC All Stars

Mattel Ends Young Justice and Cancels DC All Stars

Not so good news for toy collectors of Mattel's latest descion on the fates of their Young Justice and DC Universe lines.



Earlier this week, Mattel sent word that they would be canceling their Young Justice line entirely due to poor sale figures. Now Mattel issued a statement detailing the fate of their DC Universe line which was to be revamped in DC All Stars:

"DC Universe is going away after 2012 and there'll be one more wave of 4. In 2013, we'll be relaunching our 6" with complimentary offerings on Matty and at Mass. You guys will be able to complete your collection and I hope you'll like what we are doing. We've taken lessons from DC Universe and Legacy. Overall, we need to adjust to retailers, consumers and what's selling in volumes that can be supported.

As far as the character that we showed but haven't released, most of them have been tooled so we'll be looking for a way to release them in one form or another. However, I can't 100% guarantee that.

The first DC All Star line was plagued with various changes as it was originally to have Batman Beyond, Larfleeze, Superboy Prime, and Flashpoint Plastic Man. Then a second wave to have New 52 Flash, Red Robin, New 52 Superman, and alternate Supergirl. This was all changed with Mattel scuttling wave two and slashing out wave one then merging figures from both waves.The line-up at the moment will be: New 52 Batman, Red Robin, New 52 Superman, and Superboy Prime arriving sometime in later half of 2012.
