What was this? I must have missed it.

And I've noticed that stores don't seem to be stocking/displaying them as much anymore. They're pretty non-existent at K-Mart and Wal-Mart. Toys R Us never seems to have them. Target is pretty much the only place that I've seen any JLU/DCSH figures.

Target, eh? Good to know...

Well a lot of it has to do with Mattel holding off on releasing figures due to Spider Man, Pirates and Transformers all having movies out. Target has really been the only one getting any shipments in, and even those are sporatic at best. But I imagine that things will start getting better with Mattel getting the DCU master license and supposedly their own aisle headers.

The "so-called" Vigilante debacle happened when people couldn't find Vigilante/Orion when they 1st came out around Christmas last year and quit the buying them. But IMO one of the best things about the JLU line is that there hasn't been too many figures that haven't been rereleased further down the line. Right now that lost wave is shipping along with singles of Vixen, Kyle Rayner and Sinestro.
