Four new DCUC 2-packs popped up for pre-order on web retailer BigBadToysStore.com today and the collecting community took notice. The 2-packs listed were:
DC Universe Classics Two-Packs – Batman Vs. Clayface
DC Universe Classics Two-Packs – Superman Vs. Classic Brainiac
DC Universe Classics Two-Packs – Lex Luthor Vs. Supergirl
DC Universe Classics Two-Packs – Golden Age Hawkman & Golden Age Hawkgirl
Shortly thereafter Mattel representative “Toy Guru” gave fans of this line a bit more clarification on these sets:
“So here is the deal with the new DCUC 2 packs and new IH Mallah’s Revenge 6 packs that has shown up on some Internet sites.
These are currently “proposed” packs which we would very much like to get to. What are the factors holding them up you say? Well fan interest that is what!
To generate this, we have offered these packs to online retailers in hopes of generating enough pre-sales and support going into production. If we do receive that and can hit the minimum order quantity we need to go into production, these packs will roll out throughout 2009.
