  1. Thats being a little optimistic don't ya think? How about one out of every 150?
  2. None of the three Walmarts near me carry DCUC or ML. Still plenty of TDK and HULK movie figures though... I guess they figure nobody is buying that crap, why should they put out more?
  3. See this is one I want! I don't understand why, by wave 7, we will have three Aquamans to choose from (if you count the varient) and yet no Ollie. I mean, Aquaman, by most accounts, is kind of lame (especially that stupid camo in 7) Great Green Arrow man! He looks awesome
  4. I say bring on the chase! Give me a chase every wave. Honestly, I am not frustrated enough with this poor distribution, and bad paint apps. I need this to be further complicated so I can just write off collecting these all together. Common Mattel, give me another reason to stop wanted to buy these!
  5. I haven't really seen anything beyond series one, and the ones from series 2 and 3 that I have seen, had such a bad paint app, I passed on them all. I just can't bring myself to order a case when I have a feeling that I will be getting a GL with a blob of white paint one his face or a Deathstroke that looks like it was painted by someone who actually had a stroke. I know this has been said over and over with the paint, but common! I'm not a huge fan of Hasbro or anything, but I can honestly say I haven't seen any ML with paint as bad as I've seen on DCUC. If there was some way to know that they weren't having these sort of problems anymore, or atleast it's not as prevelent, I would consider ordering a case. At this rate, I am starting to wonder if the MOTUC will have the same paint app problem.
  6. I am with you man. All I have from wave 2 is Blue Superman, and to be honest Superman was the one I wanted least of all from that wave. Last time I checked my Target, they had just put out a fresh batch of Penguins and Batmans. I passed on the one time I saw wave three there because of the bad paint, and it's that reason that I fear buying them online.
  7. Ya... I am in North FL, still waiting on series 2....
  8. I wish that was here I haven't seen wave 2 since April I'm in the same boat, when these first hit shelves a few months back, I saw the Blue Slurpee Superman and the Firestorm, and even though I would have rather gotten the Firestorm, it's paint app was terrible, so I opted to get the Superman, mostly for the BAF part. So now, months later, all I have is one gorilla arm, and I haven't seen any series two since. I just saw series three the other day at target, but, like Firestorm before, the paint apps on both Green Lanterns that I saw were just globby and messy, so I passed again. At this point, I don't care much if I finish series two, I would order it online, but I am afriad of getting one with a bad paint app. Common Mattel, work some of that magic used to make Barbie a billion dollar success with DCUC! Common!
  9. Finally saw some last night at Target... Two Hal Jordans, one had a big brown smudge on his face, the other had a big blod of white paint with someones fingerprint on his chest symbol... this is why I passed on so many series two, all had bad paint apps! I read that they were tryin to fix that.. but still
  10. Or maybe even more notably the extra $4.00 - $5.00 per item. People aren't exactly making more money these days on the average, and paying even more for an action figure is not on most parents priorities. Ya, I've seen em around here at TRU, and while I am a huge Hulk fan, and some of these are pretty sweet, I just can't spend the extra cash on em right now
  11. May as well throw in my two cents... while I am more of a Marvel fan, I gotta say that saying things like DC fans are second rate is obviously a cry for attention. Comparing Marvel to DC is like comparing Coke to Pepsi, so I don't really see the value of an opinion based "fact" as you called it. So what's the problem with spreading your big players over a few waves? Like I said, I'm more of a Marvel guy, but DC has a rich and colorful history! Sure, I will admit that I don't know alot about the different and less popular charcters comming out, but I am aware of who these people are, and I am just a casual DC fan. If anything, it makes more sense spread out the big guys, so it's not just the hardcore collectors/fans who are buying these by wave 8 (don't forget kids like toys too) I mean doesn't it make sense to have parents/kids buy a few figures over a few months rather than having a "JLA" wave and be done with it? Kind of seems like you would want to put a one or two heavy hitters in each wave, to make both casual customers and hardcore collectors happy. Again, just two more cents being thrown in...
  12. I can't wait for this DD. Not that there's anything wrong with the FO version, I think this looks better, but I guess we will see once it's on the shelves.
  13. I am a little dissappointed that he is the BAF, but if that's the only way we can get him, I'll take it!
  14. I can go either way on Lobo, would be nice to have, but I wouldn't miss him. The Riddler looks good, gotta love those Batman villians!
  15. Personally, I can't wait for the Hulk. I know there has been some drama behind the scenes with Norton, but I have faith that Norton is a strong enough actor, and that they learned their lesson from the first film.
