SDCC 2014 DC Total Heroes Firestorm 006

In a few posts on the MattyCollector Forums, Toyguru Scott Neitlich has revealed that the DC Total Heroes Ultra line will not be continuing. Fan demand wasn’t there and these 6″ figures will ride off into the sunset. Here’s some of what Toyguru posted:

No, the line has not sold well enough for a 2015 line and will conclude with Firestorm. We can only make figures when there are enough customers to buy them!

Absolutely understand the frustration when a toy line you love ends. The DC retail team will continue to work with fans and listen to all of there suggestions and comments for future DC action figures from Mattel!

These aren’t details we share publicly, but essentially they did not meet sales goals to keep the line going.

Correct. Only the ultra deluxe figs on Matty are wrapping up.

So what are your thoughts on the DC Total Heroes Ultra line being cancelled? Let us know in the discussion.

The cockpit now features a scaled Batman figure at the controls, with the front and rear lights activated with a dashboard switch.
