  1. I'm not Funko's biggest fan, but these look pretty decent, at least for grainy images. I'm cautiously optimistic about the Firefly figures now.
  2. Frankly, it was pretty amazing that the lined survived for so long at retail. That was already a major achievement, given the eclectic character selection. Because they were able to get us thus far, I almost can't fault Mattel for the eventual decline of the line. I'm sorry DCIE didn't go through for you guys. I personally couldn't justify paying almost $30 a figure (after tax and shipping) and not even have a choice as to which figures I wanted to buy. Although what puzzles me is how DC Direct can still produce figures at a similar price point and not rely on large retailers, while Mattel can't.
  3. I find the shipping prices intolerable.
  4. Mattel should just do the reverse of what they've been doing previously: put one "collectors" figure in each wave of "all star" figures. Sure, it would cut the number of "collectors" figures by a third, but at least they'd have a chance of seeing retail. i have no real knowledge about toy production, but it sounds good to me.
  5. I'm going to have to pass on the subscription. My interest in the line was already winding down, and now the figures are going to be even more expensive. $15 plus tax and shipping no longer seems worth it to me -- and yes, I can afford it. I guess I'd just rather spend my money elsewhere now. For the price of the subscription + tax and shipping, I can probably afford a couple Hot Toys figures, which will be much more impressive on the shelf.

    wave 20

    Twenty is a lot of waves. I've already started to skip figures, so it feels appropriate (to me at least) that the line should be ending. I was prepared to stop collecting these.
  7. I bought the first three: Hal, Tomar-Re, and Rot Lop Fan. I might just keep Hal, since I'm not THAT interested in these. I certainly don't want to pay $15 * 11 figures to get Parallax. That is ridiculous.
  8. Man I don't recognize any of these characters. I may stop collecting DCUC after wave 17. These have gotten too expensive anyway. .
  9. This is a pretty comprehensive site listing all the minimates ever released, along with their accessories. http://minimatedatabase.com/chars.php?i=391&n=Deadpool Although this might not answer your original question, as the listing for the Heroes and Adversaries set hasn't been filled in.
  10. I was thrilled to find some hint of Wave 14 at my closest Walmart (which isn't even that close). I was ready to purchase the three Wave 14 figures they had, until I started wondering why the packaging looked kinda beat up. Turns out someone had removed the CnC parts, carefully sealed the packaging, and returned them to Walmart. It also explains why the packaging felt so light.
  11. I received OMAC and Jemm from Amazon today. Hopefully I'll get the others soon. Not having to go hunting is great... but I'm not sure which Starman I'll end up getting.
  12. the head looks to be the same as d'anna's http://minimatedatabase.com/figure.php?i=674 also a toysrus exclusive. it's possible someone swapped out the head or it was a factory error.
  13. I'm not thrilled about getting a SC Batman, but since they're making one, they should've at least gotten the bat symbol on the outfit. I'm fine with his outfit being yellow since that's the general motif. I could believe that the outfit that Batman was wearing in that one panel was incomplete.
  14. What comic did he first appear in? I'd rather get a real comic character than this weirdo. He didn't appear in any comic, that doesn't make him any less cool. Look at Goddess or Tytus from MOTUC...neither were part of the figure series. What is so weird about him? Why is he so bad? I don't understand the hate or dislike from a character because he didn't appear in any of the comic books. Judging by your handle you're a big Superpowers fan, so I can understand why you think it's cool. I do kinda think it's cool that DCUC is paying homage to the old line of toys. However, I think there are many people who didn't grow up with the Superpowers line of toys, such as myself, and think Golden Pharaoh or Cyclotron are taking up a spot that could've been given to a DC character they're actually familiar with based on the comics. Also, why pay money for a figure that isn't canon? Golden Pharaoh will probably contain the figure stand, so at least there's the option of not picking it up. With each passing wave I recognize fewer and fewer characters. I will still pick up all the figs to build the BAF tho.
