  1. Bicketty BAM!!! THANKS Matty! We NEVER got these in Northern Illinois and now good things will come to those who waited (rather than pay the greedy f'rs on E-Bay).

     

    LOVE IT!!!!

  2. Let's say that DCUC 12 lands next month.

     

    Let's also say that you decide to get both Trap Jaw and Battle Cat.

     

     

    DCUC will be around 130 plus shipping and MOTUC will be 50 plus shipping.

     

    That will make for close to 200 bucks in toys in one month.

     

     

    Who is ready for that?

     

    I've been in and out of the boards lately, but will wave 12 be carried by Mattycollector.com?

  3. Finally my set arrived from matty. Kilowog is fantastic! I too got the phasing variant of Deadman so sweet. Overall the set I got have great quality.

     

    FINALLY got mine on my doorstep last night. Got the regular Deadman (yeah! I already had the variant from Mikes Comics N Things...no relation), didn't chase around AT ALL having to look for these (I used to be a "thrill of the 'hunt'" kind of guy, until wave 10 never really showed around here...until the scalpers decided they couldn't make a ton of dough on them).

     

    I'm all in on the Blackest Night in the comics and GL is dangerously close to replacing Iron Man as my favorite character.

     

    LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!

  4. I can't wait to get these delivered from Matty! I hope I DON'T get the variant as I already bought one from Mike's Comics and Stuff (at a VERY reasonable price to boot!).

     

    It's SO NICE to not be chasing around, fighting the elements in the midwest to try and find these figs. Also, nice to not be sweating an e-tailer pre-order that may or may not be cancelled a la wave 9.

     

    THIS is how to collect figs!

  5. That's good that Mattel is doing this but I wonder how it is going to hurt them with e-tailers and retailers like Walmart. Can BBTS or CSC really be happy that Matty is causing people to cancel pre-orders with them and undercutting them especially coming off of the wave 9 shortfall that occurred.

     

    Also with Mattel's spotty track record when it comes to QC I'm hesitant anymore ordering figures sight unseen worrying I'll have some issue with it. I'm always experiencing a mix of excitement of getting MOTUC figures from Matty and dread of QC when UPS delivers my MOTUC stuff each month.

     

    I don't give a RAT'S A$$ how this hurts Wal-Mart, and with the exception of Mikes' Comics and Stuff, I'm not a big fan of the e-tailers either as I was a victim of credit card theft from ONE of them being careless with my information (I won't name names).

     

    I ordered from Matty and it was a BREEZE!!! I will buy EVERY WAVE like this if they decide to sell them that way. I'd sign up for a figure of the month like Masters of the Universe. KEEP IT COMING MATTY!!!!

  6. Forgive me brothers, for I have sinned...and finally bought some Wave 10 off ebay.....4 figures cost about 75 (shipping included) when they would have cost 64 without cost of gas/time. So 11 dollars I guess isn't too bad, but it's just disheartening to have to resort to eBay. I don't mind the 11 dollars and all but it's really the principle of the matter. Hunting for over 3 months all over my area and into Orange County with no hint of them is just disheartening...

     

    I'm still looking for Man-Bat and Robotman though....so all the guys that say they have plenty into their area....help a bro out? :)

     

    Also Hitman....I got a Forager fig, but I only want the C&C piece. If you want I could sell you the Forager for a reasonable price + shipping.

     

    Thanks for the offer as0f988, but I like the C&C and am shooting for the whole magilla. We collectors on these boards need to help each other out whenever possible.

     

    Again, I NEVER would have found at least the two figs I did, unless someone had posted what was going on with the Palatine store. I've been chasing all around, North of there and coming up with nothing. I did see a scalper on E-bay was selling sets and he lives in Mundelein, IL, so I think that guy has been cleaning out the stores in my area.

  7. My WM in Palatine ,IL had a endcap full of wave 10.I got there too late to see 10 Black Batman & 10 Power Girl.

     

    Thanks for the tip on this. I chased all the way down to Palatine from work on my lunch hour (ok, it was slightly closer to 90 minutes than 60) and found the Bats and Power Girls on the pegs. They were moved from an apparent endcap that was referenced above. I looked around them and found someone was nice enough to hide a Joker for me!!!

     

    So I grabbed the three figs, paid for them and left at least three Power Girls and three bats hanging there for someone else.

     

    Now I've got to hope I can get my mitts on the Man-Bat, Beast boy, Robotman & Forager somewhere... #US1#

  8. My WM in Palatine ,IL had a endcap full of wave 10.I got there too late to see 10 Black Batman & 10 Power Girl.

     

    I'm in Grayslake. Any chance you could hook me up with a Black bats and a Power girl? I've got NONE of these figs.....

  9. Something is rotten in Northern IL on this wave. I chased around to 7 Walmarts around Grayslake and struck out completely. I spoke to an AM at the one closest to my house, they had five old figs on the pegs (blue beetle, two cyborgs, a Big barda, a flash and a kid flash), they checked the system and it said they had 37 in stock. They checked the back and couldn't find any where they were supposed to be. The guy even checked a fresh pallet for me. Anyway, he said he'd order a case for me (I trucked all the way up the Racine WI for Pete's sake!) but I'm not holding my breath. I'm guessing someone there knows what they have and hid the missing 32 somewhere until they got paid and could buy them (to turn around and scalp them).

     

    I'm so aggravated by this...I'm going to have to turn to E-bay in a week or so if this guy strikes out for me....grrrrr.....

  10. so thats a lot of us who have these now! Who else is still in need of these?

     

    I need them. I was hopeful this morning when I hit the GRAND OPENING of a new WM Supercenter (replacing the old crummy one up the street), and was greeted by the SAME FRIGGIN' CYBORG'S and Captain Cold's they had at the old store. GAAAAA!!!!!!!!!

     

    Did snarf a Guardian/Namor/Electro from the MU figs and left behind a number of different colored Hulks.

  11. Let's hope this is another Wal-Mart exclusive wave so I never can actually get my mitts on it.

     

    Seriously, dig them all. Is Cyclotron two different figures or just one, and the second pick is "revealed?

  12. I went back and checked Pendragon's update.

     

    The store I found Wave 10 at was on the list.

     

    Another store I'm told is receiving cases this week is on the list as well. We'll see how that pans out. :)

     

    Who is Pendragon and where is his update?!?!?!?! I'm so tired of coming up empty on my hunt for these... :unsure:

  13. I announced a little while ago that my wife and I are expecting our 1st child, and we just found out it is a boy! I am excited beyond belief and just wanted to share. Thanks

     

    Wait, so it's still mint in package? :P

     

    Congrats.

     

    Awesome news and awesome response!

  14. NOTHING in Northern Illinois again. Went to the Super Wal-mart in Waukegan and gave a helpful gal there the numbers for wave 10, she went into the back and said they had it and would bring it out. She reappears with a BEST OF CASE! GAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!

     

    Oh, and Gurnee and Vernon Hills no longer carries this line. JERKS!!!

  15. Someone said "Wave 1" and "Wave 2". Which figs are in the apparent first wave, and which are in the second? I've seen and picked up ANOTHER Batman, ANOTHER Superman, an Icicle, and a Silver Banshee. When does the second wave hit (the one that I guess contains the blue Baman, metallic Superman, Black Lightning, & Major Force?

     

    As far as the pieces are concerned for the BAF, between those four I have, I got two legs, a crotch, and an arm. Am I correct in assuming I have to buy all 8 figs to build the BAF, or do the two bats have the same pieces and the two Superman(s) have the same pieces?

  16. HAVE...NOT...SEEN...ANY...OF...THESE...IN...THE...NORTHERN...'BURBS...OF...CHICAGO!!!!!

     

    We might get the friggin' Olympics, but can't get decent distribution of these Godforsaken Figs! Wave 5 never hit here, Wave 9 is MIA, and Wave 10 is nowhere to be found either.

  17. Riverside CA

     

     

    Me too , all pegs are full of best of, it's hard to get out there busy work week this week. Did find a lone Vigilante off Target around the Tyler mall.

     

    Nothing in Northern Illinois yet....This is like Wave 5 ALL OVER again....oh, no wave 9 either. DRAT!!!!!!

  18. I just plucked a case off the pallets at the Turnersville, NJ Walmart. WOOT!!

     

    I've found NOTHING in Northern Illinois. No luck at Wal-Mart, TRU (on wave 9), or at Target (again, wave 9 and the Batman/Superman exclusives). GAAAA!!!!
