  1. i got optimus prime, the 25th anni. van,raphael,don,leo,shredder,aniamted grimlock,red ryder b.b gun,bruticus maximus,daredevil,giant packs skrull and cap,and mini mutants raph exosuit

     

     

    The animated Grimlock is probably one of my all time favorite Transformers figures.

     

    The TMNT van used to be where I stored my remote controls for the TV and Cable Box. There has to be some sort of utility to that toy. =)

  2. So, yesterday I did a bit of a search in the area. Of late I have been trying to see if either Wave 11 or Wave 12 has found it's way on to the shelves here in Columbus Ohio.

     

    Yesterday I saw Green Arrow, Black Canary, Dr. Fate, Wildcat ( both versions ) , Robot Mantis, Vigilante, Deadshot, Black Adam, Guardian and Commander Steel. This really doesn't help with my Gentleman Ghost search but I am amazed that I saw as many of these figures as I did. There were tons of them on the shelf.

     

    When it comes to the Public Enemies figures, I can only find Superman. Icicle, Banshee and Batman are nowhere to be found. Actually, I was amazed that I haven't seen a PE Batman figure in quite some time.

     

    Certain figures I am thinking of buying duplicates of, like Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Hawkman and Dr. Fate. I just really like these figs and maybe it will clear up some shelf space.

     

    Is anyone else finding shelves that are similarly stocked?

     

     

    BTW, these were all at a Target Store.

  3. I'm waiting for these to be available on Mattycollector.

     

    I wasn't expecting them to come out this quickly. Matty hasn't even announced a release date yet through their site.

     

    Could these be part of the January 15th releases?

     

    If you go to BBTS, you can order Copperhead, Mary Marvel and Desaad right now.

     

    I will be glued to Matty's facebook page for the next couple of days.

  4. I just received the following in an email from BBTS.

     

    "DC UNIVERSE 12 - COPPERHEAD, DESAAD, MARY MARVEL

    We're just received a portion of the Wave 12 singles. Our most recent

    shipment includes Desaad, Copperhead and Mary Marvel (both versions), and

    we have singles available of these figures at $16.99 to $19.99 each. The

    remaining DCU 12 figures appear to be quite a ways out from delivery."

     

    Be on the lookout because here they come!

  5. Well, my BBTS order still says " Paid " and has not switched over to " Shipped " yet.

     

     

    The pictures of the figs look AWESOME!!!

     

    I can't wait til they get delivered!

     

    Evidently Mattycollector.com is having a much faster response time with this line than e-tailers.

  6. Got my Matty order today too!! Overnight for regular price shipping!! Opened up JOhn right away!

    They forgot to paint his ring (easy fix though)

    4212713816_871e65b0ec_b.jpg

     

    This wave rocks!! Up next Katma!! (I'm taking my sweet time opening these!)

     

     

    I know it is just a stock body and a new head, but damn that figure looks nice!

     

    At first I wasn't all that excited about it and now I really can't wait to get the John Stewart fig. Great Pictures!

  7. My brother and I have been looking for this figure in the Central Ohio are for the past several weeks and have yet to find him.

     

     

    We have found wave 10 several times and a lot of Wave 8 and 9. I even have spares of Hawkgirl, Green Arrow and Black Canary now.

     

     

    Gentleman Ghost is impossible to find currently. Actually I shouldn't say that, I have found him once already for my own collection and he is open and displayed.

     

     

    Just trying to find him for other people on the boards.

  8. Just checked my e-mail and it says my order has shipped as well. Says it is scheduled to arrive on 12/30/09!!!Hopy Crap that was fast! I wasn't expecting so quick but sure will take it!!! Way to go Matty!

     

     

    You are so lucky!

     

    My BBTS order simply says paid ... no shipment confirmation.

     

    Starting to wonder if they simply charged everyone they could before we could order from Mattel. LOL

  9. Question to those that ordered wave 11 from Matty today.

     

    I was checking my bank account online and I noticed that I was charged twice my Matty, and than had a 3 refunds/credits billed to my account. I called Matty/Digital River and they said everthing was good and that I would indeed recieve wave 11 on the 30th. Just wondering if you had the same thing happen to any of you.

     

    I have en extra $260 in my account from the credits from Matty, but soon expect that to vanish, LOL

     

     

    This is not uncommon for retailers to experience this with their payments.

     

    I have had Blizzard (WoW) charge me 5 times one month and even Starbucks has charged me more than once on accident.

     

    Sometimes the systems mess up but it is common. Usually the retailer catches it or if you call the bank, they will be able to notice the duplicate charge and void it.

  10. BigBadToyStore Charged me today.

     

    This must mean that I will get them soon, huh?

     

    The total was 137.78 .

     

    There is a difference of 10 bucks.

     

    BBTS has increased prices over the years which is why I switched to Corner Store Comics, even with Mattys cheap shipping, the price is basically the same with CSC. BBTS lost the bulk of my business years ago, still use them for odds and ends though, also there is no restocking fee...whoo hoo.

     

    I could have saved about 10 dollars having gone somewhere else.

     

    KUDOS to Mattel on offering these online.

     

    BBTS has always been really friendly with me though. I am anxious to see who gets things first. Will the BBTS orders come in first or the MattyCollector orders. This will be an interesting test.

     

    Didn't Mattel say that their figures aren't going to be in the actual package?

     

    Not sure about the packaging, I thought they said "individually packaged items".

     

    As for BBTS, they are very, very good but when it came to price I had to switch to CSC, I was saving about 15 to 20 bucks per order, which over time and 5 waves is about hundred bucks. The only drawback with CSC is that you pay a 30% cancellation fee for items which at BBTS, you just go and remove your items. After wave 13 I probably will go to ordering these from Mattel directly, that way I don't have to worry about cancellation fees and higher prices. It would be nice if Matty offered a subscription like they did for the MOTUC.

     

     

    Hmmm ... a DCUC subscription ... that would be awesome!

     

    You are right, after several waves, the price difference will start to add up.

     

    If this first round of ordering goes fine, I might switch over to ordering directly from Mattel as well.

     

    This is sort of a weird time to be a toy collector. LOL

  12. Just ordered mine from Matty, it went smooth. Suck it scalpers, it feels good not having to drive to a million stores in a month.

     

    Awesome.

     

    Still nothing from BBTS. Which on one hand makes me a sad puppy, and on the other hand gives me time to reduce the swelling on my credit card. :P

     

    I too look forward to not wasting so much damned time collecting these, and I hope the bean counters at Mattel are paying attention.

     

     

    Some of the status messages on BBTS changed. I noticed that the Cyborg Superman no longer says Sold Out.

     

    Something is going on over at BBTS.

  13. I can't wait for this wave.

     

    No doubt I will buy all of them.

     

    Then again, I am a hardcore DC fan.

     

    Blue Devil looks awesome!

    Donna Troy looks awesome!

    Superboy? AWESOME!

    Negative Man is a must for me. I love Doom Patrol.

    Blue Beetle is a great looking figure.

    Cyclotron is a must for nostalgic reasons.

    Cheetah? How can I say no?

     

    On the variant side of things, I will probably skip the Negative Man variant but not the Cheetah variant.

  16. I have had a few good finds lately, but today I had an older DCUC figure find. I was at my Kroger earlier today, and I heard some Krogers carry DCUC, but I have never really went out of my way to check. So I go to the toy aisle and check, and I see Booster Gold, Kid Flash, The Penguin, nothing too special at all. Then I crouch down to look at the bottom shelf to see if anyone maybe stuck one behind something, and I catch a glimpse of orange glaring off of the floor. It looks like something is UNDER the bottom shelf on the floor. So I reach under and I pull out a very dusty DCUC box, and I can not yet tell what figure it is, so I turn it over, and its a Wave 3 Deathstroke with no mask, so I am ecstatic at this point because I do not even have this figure, I have the masked version, and since I never saw the un-masked version, I never got it. So I go up to the check out, and its only $6.99. This was a very good deal and a heck of a find. So, next time you are at your Kroger, be sure to check the toy aisle. Anyways, this is 3rd time in the past couple of weeks I have found a DCUC I need hidden somewhere. The best so far was the Gentleman Ghost hidden at Target behind some board games. Here is the Deathstroke bought from Kroger today (Picture was taken with a cell phone, sorry its so small):

     

    DS.jpg

     

    Again, be sure to check your local Kroger, they might have a DCUC figure you are looking for. Then again, some Krogers do not even have a toy section. Anyways, I thought this was a pretty cool find.

     

     

    I live in Central Ohio and have been able to find a few figures at various Kroger Stores. Typically it is the Kroger Marketplace stores that have the figures and this is how I was able to find the entire Atom Smasher Wave.

     

    Honestly, it has happened so many times that I can pull up the bottom shelf and find figures underneath. There are few collectors that actually try to hide stuff that way. I started making a habit of checking beneath those shelves.

     

    Congrats on an awesome find!
