DC BATTLEAGUE Batman Action Figures Game By MATTEL

Whatever happened to the new line of toys called DC BATTLEAGUE?? I just got done researching on the internet for quite awhile & have found no answers. A few people have said they have spotted them at Toys-R-Us & even seen them on eBay but I checked both sites & nothing! There's not even any reports of these figures being canceled by Mattel, very weird! If ANYONE has some information about this please let me know. For people who have not heard of them yet Mattel plans on having a new game with mini-figures ( not tiny like Heroclix ) of many of the DC Comics Superheroes. There's suppose to be a ton of Batman characters like Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman, etc...Mattel presented these at the 2007 Toy Fair & they were should have been released already, like last July. These figures look really incredible & it woud be a total shame if they were not put out....strange!

I've seen the other version of the same toy, the ones that have the Star Wars, Marvel, and Transformers licenses. But I've never seen these anywhere... shame as they do look badass!

I saw them at my TRU(Clearwater, FL) yesterday but passed. They had a Batman/Catwoman set. Robin/Two Face and a Joker/Batgirl(Babs).

They were pretty well sculpted too--it's just that playing the game doesn't interest me--that and I passed because they had The Batman Manhunter, Flash, ans Supes to spend my money on.

They scrapped the "game" theme and the name "Battle League" - but they have released the figures in two packs under the name DC Universe Fighting Figures. I have seen them at Toys R Us and Target. Sadly, no sign of the Batmobile yet.

Thanks for the info. I'm gonna have to hit Toys-R-Us pretty soon. The prototype photos I have seen look great. I hope they're cool.
