  1. Seems solid to me. Not everyone will flock to Matty, because maybe they only want one-two figures out of a Wave? And there are those who refuse to pay shipping if they can buy it nearby. Retailers will therefore still move product. Not to mention, some figures (I.e. Variant Deadman) will only be available there.

     

    I'm just waiting for Mattel to find a way to screw it up.

  2. Ok, so I have a set of W10 (sans Batman), thanks to a VERY generous friend. What infuriates me is that SA has at least six Wal-Marts full of Captain Colds, Cyborgs, and Miracle/Impossibles, and are blocked from receiving W10.

     

    To make matters worse, they are the nearest Wal-Marts to me. >:( Only one WM I know has been getting W10 regularly, but it is LITERALLY, like 45 minutes, across town from me....the few occasions I've been able to make it, I see a lone Power Girl. For some reason, the money-hungry scalpers think Batman is worth something, and keep buying him. :/

  3. If every figure was produced in the millions, and you all had no problem finding them, your interest would be lost because it would be too easy to get them.

    No. YOUR interest would be lost, because you wouldn't be able to make your buck. God forbid you have to work for it. WE, on the other hand, would all be happy with our complete collections.

     

    By your logic, nobody should like video games or Coca-Cola, because anyone can get them...

  4. Ah, I'm beginning to feel real stupid. I've obtained every figure so far sans Batman. I kept passing on him, because people are treating him like Man-Bat, Robotman, or Joker (just because he's from W10, and is recognizable).

     

    But suddenly (at two different Wal-Marts), some people returned handfuls of Mr. Miracles, Dr. Impossibles, and Cyborg. Looks like W10 is done, and I'm lacking the easiest to obtain fig....but everyone wants scalper prices for it. :/

  5. Ya know, every time Mattel calls something "variant", "chase", or "ship at a 50/50 ratio", the normal one is always harder to find. Examples, ever since W2:

     

    Aquaman (long hair outnumbers short hair)

    Captain Atom (silver is rarer, from what I've seen)

    Superman (red/blue is like, 2:1 to black suit)

    Dr. Impossible (need I remind you?)

    Booster Gold (I hardly see the collared version)

    Wildcat (the black one is impossible to find!)

    Mantis (human, too!)

     

    I tend to not believe it anymore...

  6. got all my orders from Mattycollector including Bank Thug Joker. Til I get DC Universe Wave 10 I still hate Mattel!

    It's real! It's really real, MM's can't be pushed back any further! :D

     

    I'm curious as to who's on back? Survival Bruce and Dent?

  7. Just wanted to let you guys know that Bank Robber Joker is now listed on Matty's site. Goes on sale Monday.

     

    I'm not sure if this was posted somewhere else, but here's the link (with pics) of the (hopefully soon) upcoming Movie Masters Jail Cell Joker:

    What do you guys think of the sculpt and accessory?

    I like it. I like it lots. Though the bazooka is random, it helps justify the $20 (but only a little).

     

    I got excited by the back of the card. Finally, some hard evidence that we will, in fact receive Harvey Dent and Two Face! Also, note the little introduction mentioning Bruce Wayne...

  8. dammit, now after watching teen titans i want robotman (from that one episode) and now i even want beast boy (to someday make a doom patrol) i saw them in that one episode and thought they were all cool so i'm going to try and buy beast boy and robotman, ...along with manbat, joker, and batman, wow this is going to be the most figures i've bought from the same wave

    You didn't get all of W3? :D

  9. texas and oklahoma are getting all the wave 10 shipments!

     

     

    what has happened to California!?!?!?!?

    Hey, don't look at San Antonio! We've only seen a single case! Hopefully that's not the end of it. :/

  10. Got the four for me. I'm a little disappointed @ all-painted bodies (no sculpted boots, etc.), and the paint smudged on a couple of my figs pretty fiercely (Bats/Banshee). They don't seem hard to find, though...

  11. Since nobody's strong enough to boycott the line....

     

    Yeah, letters or (professional) phone calls may put a dent. However, whatever Wave Mattel is prepping while we attack, will become the new Wave 6/7 pegwarmers. Do you guys realize this?

  12. As soon as anyone knows or finds something in San Antonio / Austin area, please pm me!!

    I'm hunting in SA. Other than a lone Powergirl at the Wally on Vance Jackson (by IH10), there has been no activity.

  13. I'm utterly baffled by the fact that people can pay $60 per Wave 10 fig, as well as $20 per Wave 9 fig, simultaneously buying a Gleek/Twin set at $120, then Public Enemies for however much they're going for.....

     

    I'm not talking about an individual, I'm just making assumptions after browsing eBay for 10 minutes.
