The Future of DC Toy Lines Addressed
Young Justice toys cancelled, but the superhero show goes on...
Recent word that Mattel's Young Justice toy line (in both scales) had been cancelled has created a sense of panic with DC fans fearing that all is not well with their beloved superheroes in the toy aisle. Mattel attempts to ease the concerns of collectors with the following statement, saying that while it is unfortunate that Young Justice is ending, that there is still plenty to be optimistic about.

You may have heard that the time is nearing for the end of the Young Justice toy line. While we're as bummed as you are, we want to be sure you know this doesn't in any way mean the end of DC toys from Mattel. In fact, itís quite the opposite!
Next month kicks off not one, but two new lines: our DC Universe Club Infinite Earths subscription service dedicated to true collector characters you won't find at retail. The first shipment goes out in May and features an all-new 6" Golden Age The Flash figure. If you missed out on this awesome subscription, a limited quantity will also be available at MattyCollector.com on May 15th at 9am PT. Then, in late May, head to your local retailer and you'll find The Dark Knight Rises, a kid-targeted Batman line. And for 2013, we're planning an innovative collector-aimed line coming to retail stores.
We'll have more details as they're available. Our partnership with DC is stronger than ever and we couldn't be more excited for all the amazing new collector and kid toys to come!
