Fwoosh Giveaway – Justice League Unlimited Lobo!

We know you have been waiting a long time for this. Finally, the “Main Man” is coming to your JLU shelf by way of Matty Collector this June. I am pretty sure that, next to the Green Lantern that will not be mentioned, Lobo is the most fan requested figure out there. Mattel and DC found a way to get him to the fans (since he is a little bit on the violent side for the youngsters) and he will be a gauge to test if more figures like him will be possible for a similar release down the road – Kalibak, perhaps?

Well, now one lucky fan is going to get a chance to win this figure FOR FREE before anyone else! How do you ask? Well, it is simple – all you really have to do is respond to this with your personal feelings/story/reason why it is great to finally have Lobo in your JLU collection.

Pretty simple, eh? We are even going to leave him on the card and ship him in his white mailer box so he will arrive just as if you ordered him. Here are some carded picture we took so you can see him up-close, but if you enter you have a chance of seeing him even closer – as in on your shelf! There is some fine print below with rules and legal so please read EVERYTHING carefully prior to entering. More after the jump!

  1. CUZ He’s the the MAIN MAIN MAN…..and he’s voiced by Brad Garrett in the Cartoon…..Co-created by Keith Giffen…..Member of L.E.G.I.O.N.

  2. LOBO is the man………..THE MAIN MAN!!!! This is a figure they said would never make it to us ….to violent, not skewed to the demographic and yet here he is…..JLU style to look cool in the display case with the other figures in my collection.

    Simple……..

  3. A) It’s The Main Man!

    B) He can whup up on my other action figures and keep ’em in line while I’m out.

    C) C’mon… it’s The Main Man! Why ~wouldn’t~ it be considered cool to have him in my collection?! I’ll bet Lobo would have this action figure in ~his~ collection!

  4. I think I’ve only missed one or two characters so far… Man, some of those are tough to find! I’d love to add Lobo to the mix. Help me out and give him to me! 😉

  5. I’d love to get this figure – I’m amazed Matty made him, given the nature of the character! I have to add him to my collection!

  6. I’m ecstatic to finally get a Lobo figure – and it’d be great to add him to my collection. Hopefully this will lead to many more one shot appearance characters, not to mention over-sized characters. Keep em’ coming!

  7. Well look at it! It’s a beautiful figure (Yes, I called Lobo beautiful) as it’s a very eye-pleasing piece of art that really carries those nice minimalist lines of the the Bruce Timm style. Would love to put him on my shelf!

  8. He’s the main man! He’s been shown in the animated DCU well before the Justive League series. Hopefully enough demand will get an Infinite Hero made of him too!

  9. Lobo’s a big cuddly teddy bear, with chains and hooks, and genocide.
    Easily my favorite episodes of the Superman show and it was awesome when he joined the JLU.
    This probably my favorite version of the character.

  10. Its great to finally get a Lobo in the JLU line simply because the dude is the main man after all. Plus, the guy named his dog, Dawg. Thats gotta count for something right?

  11. I’m happy to get this guy, because I didn’t think I’d ever see him and now that I have, he looks fantastic. I always heard that he was off the table and even though I really wanted him, I understood why he wasn’t going to be made so he is a real bonus to get in JLU.

  12. Well, the JLU line is awesome and this figure will be a great addition to my collection, and like Lobo said: “With me in your collection, what for Superman?”

  13. Someone needs to kick that chump Superman in the balls! Lobo is the only Main Man for the job!

  14. Why will it be great to finally have Lobo in JLU form?

    Because Superman the Animated Series was underrated, and hence the toys that were released were that much more limited. Yes we have figures of Lex Luthor, Livewire, Weather Wizard, Volcana, Brainiac and even Lois Lane but several of those versions came out only or in better form after the series ended. What about Jimmy Olson or Mr. Mxyzptlk (why isn’t he a pack-in)? What about an army of Parademons, Kalibak or the Kryptonian villains? What about the Toyman and Mercy Graves? In other words, release that we can get that helps to bring STAS to completion just a little bit more is always welcome.

  15. Lobo is one of my favorite figures in the DC comics and he would be a great addition to my collection.

    MM

  16. Lobo should be in my JLU collection because it is just starting off, and I need to main man to really kick it in high gear.

  17. LOVE Lobo. I’m not a big fan of DC, but Lobo is one of my favorite DC character. Would go well with the few JLU in my collection.

  18. I have been a Lobo fan since the JLI days, back before he was overpowered and he was a great foil for Guy Gardner. I am pleased and surprised that Mattel finally found a way to bring him out! Reminds me of the strings they pulled to get Grundy and Grodd out, and shows their love of this line, and figures in this style.

    I am such an obsessive fan of this line that I actually keep a spreadsheet listing every character that ever appeared in the show, noting which have yet to be made as figures. Lobo’s been a top want and I’m glad he’s finally coming.

  19. The “Main Man” simply belongs to my toy shelf along with my themed collection of JLU figures. My theme features characters that are the last of their kind. The last Czarnian will find a place with the Last Kryptonian, the last green Martian and the last Wayne.

    It would be like the Preserver getting back at Lobo and Superman for messing up his collection. My getting Lobo would be like things coming full circle.

    So hopefully, Lobo is sent my way so he will get his just desserts.

  20. I love that he’s being made because now I can finally replace the nice, but way off-scale custom I got from eBay years ago. This is an excellent sculpt and I hope the beginning of many more to come. Bring on Stripe! Kaliback! etc., etc., etc.

  21. Lobo needs to be in the JLU Collection because he was such an enigmatic character. I wish that JLU would have had him in more episodes. The way he pummeled Kalibak was brutal yet hilarious. He NEEDED to me made. He is the MAIN MAN, after all.

  22. Love the figure and would look great with the rest of the collection. LOBO is the only character that can wear a SKULL belt buckle that looks more mean the he does.

  23. “The name’s Lobo. That’s L as in Lascerate, O as in Obliterate, B as in disemBowel, and O as in… um… er, I guess I can use Obliterate twice”

    My daughter and son both love the Superman Animated cartoon, and that line cracks them up everytime – especially the “um er” part.

    Oh the JLU battles we will have against the Main Man – survey says… one more for the good guys?

  24. This Lobo will look great on my Lobo shelf! I’ll put him up there with my favorite Lobos: Sheriff Lobo himself Claude Akins, Rebecca Lobo, the University of New Mexico Mascot and Lobot!

  25. I’m glad that he is finally being released so I can finally replace the custom I made years ago that I never got to finish.

  26. I am a huge Lobo fan my nick name in high school was the main man. This figure would really tie my collection together man.
