  1. If they can just fix the articulation and maintain a price point of at most $5.99 I think they can come back. I always see Marvel Universe overflowing the pegs at the stores, and I'm not surprised with an $8 price.

     

    Recheck.

     

    In my area they are now few and far between post-Christmas.

    We still have them clogging over here, that's for damn sure....Iron Mans, Hobgoblins, Moon Knights, as far as the eye can see....at every store.

  2. Wow, strange how I recognize almost nobody from 12 (only Copperhead, Mary, and Darkseid).

     

    Now I'm torn. I found five figs at retail so far. I need:

     

    both Steppy's

    Cyborg Supes

    Deadman Variant

     

    But that certainly doesn't warrant an entire case purchase from Matty, especially since Deadman variant probably won't be in it. Then, if I pass, retail around here may not receive many more cases. Agh...

     

     

    You guys are clearly not DC fans

    I'm in the learning process, heh...

  4. Also had a hint of *********SPOILERFernGullySPOILER**********

    ...I picked up a MM Neytiri yesterday, as well as "Warrior" Jake Sully. Some nice detailing on that fella!

  5. It's simply too much at once. :( I'm used to finding two figs one week, then 3-4 the next week or so, then the rest at toy shows or eBay or something.

     

    Maybe someone will come through for me on Christmas. :P

  6. I found Wave 10 at my local Wal-Mart! Now I just need to find another Robot Man for my friend!

    Also, as I don't care about Imperiex, PowerGirl, or ManBat, should I sell my nearly-complete Imperiex?

    A lot of people still need Man-Bat, I believe. Ask around here?

  7. San Antonio, Texans!

     

    The Wal-Mart on Vance Jackson is getting these, like, every other night! Currently recieving the 999B case (2 ManBats, 1 Joker), which I found again tonight.

     

    I haven't really been elsewhere...I hear good things about the Wally on Summit Pkwy. Usually that place sucks, but they've received W10 on more than one occasion?

  8. Don't give up. My buddy told me a walmart near him got at least 4 cases. He also said it looked like the 2nd Joker was replaced by a 2nd Manbat (because they had one Joker left when he got there and tons of Manbats).

     

    Anyway, good hunting and watch those ebay prices. They are bound to drop now.

    Ah, must mean that a new case is shipping! I also saw 2 Man-Bats to 1 Joker when I found them. Then 2 Bats, 2 Power Girls....this ithe 999B case. Look out!

  9. I will start by saying I am a MOC collector (and I buy doubles of my favorites, to open). That said, from my view, neither choice is "wrong", or "stupid". Both have their pros:

     

    MOC, pros:

     

    -A DCUC figure will probably never look as cool as it did in package (flying, dynamic pose, etc.) Then when somebody asks "Who's that?", you can just tell them to read the back. :D

    -Investment can come back to you at a later point

    -Figures are guaranteed to stay intact and complete

     

    Loose, pros:

     

    -You can make the CnC figures

    -You can better re-create your favorite panels and scenes

    -Takes up substantially less space

    -Makes customizing possible

     

    Just off the top of my head. It's all collecting, though. :)

  10. Last night, I spotted a case of W10. This has never happened before. I called up my buddy, who was still lacking the bat-figures. We finished our sets. :)

     

    Simultaneously, my buddy called me from "his" Wal-Mart. They got W10. This is a Wal-Mart that hasn't received DC since Wave 7a was NEW. (Not even Best Of cases)

     

    I think there's hope for everybody at this point.

  11. Once more, please...what retailer (online, or IRL) is currently supplying these?

    The rest of the wave is on the way from Ebay seller PLM171. I was able to win these through auctions. The first three I won from various other Ebay sellers for pretty cheap.

    Ah. See, I'm wanting to know where they bought them...
