10" Justice League Martian Manhunter, J'onn J'onzz Collection

This 10" Mattel Justice League Martian Manhunter was a missing piece in my J'onn J'onzz collection here at the Super-DuperToyBox. I found him for 30% off of the listed price of $14.99 at a local retailer Memorial Day sale, bringing him home for just ninety-five cents less than he went for at K-Mart a decade ago when originally released. I've seen him go for thirty bucks or more the last few years, but upon seeing this pristine boxed specimen in person at that price, I knew the time was right. There were several other DC Heroes released in this larger scale, larger counterparts to the 4" Justice League figures, later Justice League Unlimited. There was a Green Lantern on the premises as well, but I passed holding out for a Superman or Batman, my second choices after this J'onn J'onzz...

As stated previously, I was ignorant of this deep and wonderful character as a youth, but quickly gravitated  toward Martian Manhunter as a renewed, adult comics fan. Once called the most powerful being on the face of the Earth by his friend Superman, J'onn J'onzz shares a great deal of the Man of Steel's special powers but is also a powerful telepath, adding an interesting calm and intelligence to his personality. J'onn is a special character for me, hence I'm always on the lookout for a new action figure of him I don't yet possess, of which there are few...

  1. Holy smokes...You must like John Jonzz....Of course whenever I see that name I am constantly reminded of an old Toyfare magazine that said John smelled like Elderberries. Cracks me up to this day.

  2. AhHAHAhHAH! Thats an insane amount of Martian Manhunter!!!!!
    Funny as the two versions we own, you don't.

    Is there a BRAVE AND THE BOLD Manhunter?

    1. that IS funny Kim, what are the odds?
      Unfortunately no- there is not a B&TB Martian Manhunter, though he did appear in one of my favorite episodes, Shadow of the Bat!
