Backstock for sale

At the beginning of the month, word was spreading that DC was doing a serious sale to retailers on a lot of its backstock, particularly Archives and Showcases. Seems to be true, and at least one retailer is now showing the results of that. Tales of Wonder (www.talesofwonder.com) has Legion Archives volumes 1-7 and 9-12 on sale for a mere $19.99 each, and volumes 1-3 of Showcase Presents The Legion for $6.79 each. While DC has not made an announcement, there is speculation that a lot of the books will be allowed to go out of print once the backstock is cleared out. If so, you really should think about picking up Legion Archives (and the other books covered by the sale) if you want them.

Unfortunately, Paul posted to Facebook this morning that, due to his mother's illness, he'll be unable to attend this year. Best wishes to her for a speedy recovery.

No further 12-packs of Legion action figures

From the monthly "Ask Matty" with Mattel:

"Q1. At Toy Fair, it was said that there would not be another 12 pack of the Legion of Super-Heroes due to the amount of time and resources it would involve. However, I believe I read that there were other figures in the works. Can you speak to that? Any thoughts of 2 or 3 packs? I love the 12 pack, but there’s so many more that we need!

A1. Yes. That is a fair assessment. While this item was a hit, it threw such a wrench into our schedule that is wound up delaying a lot of other product that needed resources too!"

Alas, I don't find the response clear as to whether there'll be more Legion figures (other than the already announced Star Man for Club Infinite Earths), but I'd guess so given the "hit" status of the 12-pack, particularly that they did a second run of it.
