  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.
  15. im in no hurry for bruce to come back. i've been enjoying dick as bats and damien as robin.
  16. I'm with you guys. Not a fan of these at all. It kinda boggles the mind how these decisions get made. There must be some other factors at work here that the 4HM or whoever's coming up with the 5 pack cannot control. If any one of us can immediately see the obvious flaws of the body choices... I would like to think the designers can as well.
  17. I received my first shipment of figs from Amazon: Donna Troy, Superboy, Cyclotron, Blue Beetle, and Modern Cheetah. I don't recall being able to specify which Cheetah... but I'm glad I got the modern one as I prefer the modern version of characters. Still waiting on Blue Devil and Negative Man. I've gotten shipping notices for them though... separate ones, haha. Man, I am so glad Amazon is offering these now. That's how I got most of Wave 12 (even got the variant Spectre). No more driving around and hunting. With no sales tax it's even cheaper than finding them in stores. Unfortunately, Wave 14 is a Walmart exclusive and those are far from me. Ughghghghghgh.
  18. that head sculpt looks terrible. he looks like a cartoon villain.
  19. Ooooh I hope this is true, as I need a Harvey since I missed it on MattyCollector.
  20. Cool... definitely want Plastic Man, but I don't need the suitcase. I'd get Starro... but only if I could get the convention exclusive with the little Starros. Otherwise it's a pass for me.
  21. Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. What I ended up doing was put the torso in the freezer and then snap off the washer piece using a metal nail filer. Then the lower torso snapped in easily. I wonder if this makes my Darkseid a quarter centimeter shorter.
  22. Hmm really? I don't see how it's physically possible with the ring in the way. The peg doesnt extend out far enough to attach to the lower torso.
  23. mine was actually from a white mary variant.
  24. Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll have to find another Mary. At least there are two versions... so I can get a red one instead of a second white one.
  25. Hi I finally got all the pieces to assemble the Darkseid figure, but I think there's something wrong with the torso piece I have. It doesn't connect with the butt piece. Here's a picture of the piece underneath. It looks to me like the rubber washer piece and the peg have their places swapped. The peg doesn't protrude enough to connect with the other piece. Has this happened to anyone else? Or am I missing something incredibly obvious here? Thanks.
