  1. I would like to see: Toyman w/ variant Bizarro SA Poison Ivy Apache Chief CnC Joker in a Trenchcoat El Dorado Samurai Professor Zoom Weather Wizard The Shade
  2. My two walmarts got a case each in this week so I rush out there at 10 pm open them up expecting to find wave 14--no the first mix of wave 13 at one store and the second mix of wave 13 at the other. Now I gotta hope they sell through so they'll be re-ordered. Surely by now walmart's warehouses have no more wave 13 cases.

    Target sale

    Lady Jaye by any chance was there a Desaad there.
  4. I'm assuming any day based on a few things. The past pattern has been from when Matty has posted pics of carded DCUC figures-9, 10, 12 and when Walmart sightings begin is around 6 weeks. The second thing is I've been checking with my local stores for about a month now and up until a week ago they all had zero on order and then last week one case each on order and it always takes two weeks between an order occurring and arriving at the store which next week would make next week the 6th week. Coincidence? I don't know but I'm going out there when the case comes in. I haven't heard any recent walmarts getting in wave 12, All star or wave 13 cases so surely it will be wave 14.
  5. If I remember correctly several people thought the same thing but realized the leg was just packaged in such a way that the top part of the leg was simply turned around and all you need to do is turn it back around.
  6. That turned out really well. Do you happen to have a photo of yourself to go with it?
  7. They'll eventually get around to them but in regaular wave slots. Bizarro just needs a new head and hand sculpt so easy to do, ToyMan was number 2 in last year's fan favorite poll, Riddler in tights ic coming out in wave 16, TG said they plan to release Sinestro again with a better buck, I'm sure we'll see a Scarecrow but doubt it will look like the SF one as much as I would like so I picked up the one from DCD from 2003.
  8. All the great stores I used to get figures from or my dad shopped at for me and my brother as kids have all shuttered around where I live: BEST, Service Merchandise, Wool's Worth, TG&Y, Mervyn's, Venture, Kay Bees, and KMART. It is only TRU, Target and Walmart and for all the bitching about Walmart in years past they've been really good about stocking the shelves with every wave since 10 around here.
  9. Looking for a Lex Luthor head from the figure that came in the GOtham City 5 pack for a custom.
  10. I'm a liberal and I think Hillary would be a much, much better President than Obama who is so reactive and seems always running behind in dealing with anything whether the Rev Wright controversy in 2008, getting a handle and asserting control over the healthcare debate and reigning in Pelosi, his mishandling of the oil spill, the way he has shown weakness in the international world. I think Obama is better suited to being a figurehead like Queen Elizabeth--afterall he seems more interested in the celebrity, the glitz and glamour, the rubbing elbow with celebrities, being adored by the masses and giving long-winded trite speeches. Obama also reminds me of a Democratic version of Bush--just someone the party puts out there they can pull the strings on. I hope she does run in 2012 and show this kid how things are done.
  11. If anyone needs any of wave 13 let me know c+s. I want to clear them out so they'll order the walmart wave 14.
  12. I have the right leg from Trigon and the right arm from Trigon
  13. For years SP was the gold standard but DCUC has supplanted it. The sculpts are superior and look more like the SP card art than the SP figures. The detail is outstanding, the pace of release is dizzying, the variety is stunning, the package art is like a display case, DCUC has all the SP characters but better updates, the case packs are much better with no real hard-to-find figures. We are finally getting characters I always wanted in action figure form when I was a kid with Legion of Doom characters like Cheetah, Lex Luthor, Brainiac or Superfriends characters like the Wonder Twins & Gleek. SP will always hold a special place in my heart because of the nostalgia and fond memories that I had with finding them with my dad and all the endless hours of play they gave me but DCUC outshines them in every way. I mean in the three years of SP we only got 34 figures--here we will have those 34 plus hundred more. I can see DCUC being the definitive line for decades to come and I doubt a toy company is going to come along and attempt to tackle such an ambitious project anytime soon. Right now it along with MOTUC are the two best toylines around--nothing generates the kind of excitement as a leaked list of upcoming characters or big reveals of the 2-up prototypes or the anticipation when learning of the first sighting of a new wave.
  14. I like Mattel isn't cutting corners going so far as to go to trouble to paint the eyes on a figure whose eyes you were never suppose to see.
  15. In a recent Q&A it was stated these are already in production and given how Mattel is really good at keeping its release dates I'd feel comfortable these will be out in June. The only thing is will they be under the same code as the Gotham 5 and will glut of the first 5 pack mess up restocking with the GL 5 pack or will it get a new number the way the 2 packs got. Then again it might end up on walmart.com they have the Gotham 5 pack available there.
  16. There are actually three different variant Marys--a bright red, a dark red, the white.
  17. Yes I've read other people experiencing the same problem esp over at the fwoosh. They all aren't like that though since I've put together 2 Darkseids and the hip connected with torso w/o a problem. Only thing I would recommend is returning it for another Mary and cross your fingers that it's fine. Mattel customer service won't replace it.
  18. 100 percent agree, at the very least different packaging. I was hoping they were going to be packaged in the new packaging w/ the pin since I really love the new packaging better than the original.
  19. I don't think much of the DCSH one. The DCUC one from wave 12 on the otherhand I think is an absolute perfect rendition of him and I consider it the definitive Darkseid figure. The sculpt is outstanding, the quality of plastic is great, the colors are so deep and vibrant, the killing glove and motherbox are nice little accessories to include. He simply pops on the shelf and is the perfect center to the New Gods shelf allowing all of his various minions to revolve around.
  20. You might PM masterenglish at he-man.org. He is really excellent and has done some work for me and it is better than Mattel at times.
  21. These two packs are now showing up in California.
  22. The Batman in the walmart 2 pack with robin comes like that--same as tru one except with PE belt.
  23. the dark one? please explain. There is a third variant to go with the white and light bright red versions. It is dark crimson red. Someone posted a photo of them somewhere on fwoosh and I also found all three versions myself and can indeed confirm that the red is darker in person and has nothing to do with a flash or lighting. It is just as nice as the other two so I decided to keep all 3 however the lighter red matches Shazam!. Here is the linkMy link And I might as well mention it here but there is also a variant of GG. The early ones have a phasing appearance on the cloak that drapes over his shoulders however in the refreshers that portion of the cape is solid white and isn't cast in a clear plastic. I wonder if it was too much of a hassel or oversight but it is pervasive on all the later releases I've seen on ebay and then the one I grabbed at Target.
  24. I seen Flash today but it was in the old packaging Yeah I've seen quite a few of those but I'm trying to get one of each figure in every package and the only one I need for Flash and GL are the new ones. I heard there is an All Star case of these going to Walmart but so far my stores have restocked with wave 12 cases.
