Hallmark has done a very good Batman Xmas ornament for this year. A nicely turned Wonder Woman, too. The Superman didn't thrill me, based on the picture on the box, but I may like it "in person". There's also a Flash that looks. . . odd. The legs seem to be bending in an unnatural way. Also the pose is way too much like their previous Flash.

Their new Klingon ship is pretty peachy, too.

Those Hallmark's are nice. Really like the Batman and Wonder Woman.  Do you have to special order or do they get a lot in the stores?  Do you have to special order?

I happened to be in Stamford today, so I checked the Hallmark Store at one of the malls, and they had plenty.

Here's a rather smallish shot of the Batman:

They also have a decent Captain America and a Spider-Man "comic" done along the lines of the one they did for Superman last year.

Speaking of Hallmark Ornaments. We have a section on the site devoted to them.

Hopefully, more folks will post pics & info about them now! :)

Lars & Others who collect the following: Justice League Unlimited
(animated-style action figures),

Thanks for the link --- that was fun! I found the poster I was looking for
and it brought up some questions:

1) Does anyone know if the 3-pack that included Cheetah, Lex Luthor
and the Shade & the the 3-pack that included Batman Beyond, Warhawk
and the Shade was only available overseas or if that is still scheduled to
arrive at local Target stores? And if the latter, when?

2) Are any of the Matty.com lines of toys (Legion, Batman villains,
Shazam Family) exclusive to Matty or do they all eventually hit the retail
outlets (e.g., Target)?

Thank you in advance for any info. --- I love the JLU animated line, and
have most of them, but they are a bit tricky to obtain.

They are still scheduled to arrive at Target. I haven't seen an ETA.

Exclusive to MattyCollector.

MattyCollector's Facebook page is a good place to get updates on when things are in stores:
