DC Collectibles Cancels Lucha Explosiva! Action Figure Line

DC Collectibles recently sent notices to its direct market customers that it was canceling the previously announced Lucha Explosiva action figure line that mixed DC characters with lucha libre stylings. CBR.com reported it received the following statement from DC on the line’s cancellation.

While the DC ¡Lucha Explosiva! line launched with excitement, we are reevaluating new and exciting ways we can bring the reimaged DC characters to even more fans

It sounds like there was little interest on the direct market for the figure line, leading to its cancellation. That’s too bad; I was really looking forward to those figures.
