  1. I've been a fan of both characters for as long as I can remember. I've seen this question asked before but I've never quite understood why? They simply are not on the same playing field. If this topic was Deathstroke vs Cap. America then I would feel better about the match up. Both have been enhanced by Steroids, I mean HGH or Super soldier serum. Both are soldiers, combat training. And apparently neither can die, at least for three to five months. Who really matches up well vs Batman in Marvel? Lets try to figure out that. Cap is great and Bats is great I'm open to listen to any suggestions of a better match up for Bats, but Cap has been retro fitted and is not quite a normal human being anymore. Bats is still just a guy trying really hard to not let the same crap that happen to him, happen to anyone else. Does Moon Knight have any superpowers?
  2. Well this is a cool topic Love the Challenfers of the Unknown Ideal, maybe a mattycollector exclusive? I figure that you have to have at least 2 A listers, and the popular characters are Sups and Bats and GL I wouldn't mind seeing Blackest Night 5 pack of course repainted Hal Jordan Green Lantern Sinestro Corps Sinestro John Stewart Kyle Rayner (repaint and new head sculpt) Arisa (easy repaint of any female figure with new heand sculpt) Original Teen Titans Robin Dick Grayson Elf shoes Wonder Girl Donna Troy 1st appr. Speedy Aqualad Kid Flash or make it simple Legion of Superheroes Lighning Lad or Boy Saturn Girl Cosmic Boy Braniac 5 Phantom Girl or Bouncing Boy love the ideals that I've seen so far. Just wish they'd make it easier for all of us to find
  3. not trying to start a fight, but that seems to be a "cry baby" list. Lord knows we all have them! 1.) youre mad that the shining knight wasnt made before gaurdian? i mean, arent they a tie in the "popularity" dept? 2.) blackest night? c'mon! with all of the things that happened in the DC universe pre-dating that arc, you wont be seeing any BN characters for a while. 3.) kyle and guy....kyle and guy....theyre lanterns! i.e.....anchors. we all know what anchors are for. 4.) vixen. she's a given! females dont even make up one third of the DC universe, so spacing them out makes sense. 5.) hawk and dove. theyre a given as well. maybe in a two pack, or maybe in a later wave, but theyre coming! 6.) good 'ole martian manhunter. we allknow that that b*stard's coming in some wave, so whats the rush? again, im not trying to "bash" your opinion. if you feel that the characters that you named should be made into figs, thats your right. i just think that replacing "lesser known" or "C" or "D"-listers with "A" or "B"-listers is a sure way to kill the line. and even though i know that matty (like every company) is going to throw in a bunch of variations of the "heavy hitters," (some needed, some not) it'll be nice to have a line that didnt do what marvel legends did, and fill every wave with some form of their "big guns." i also like the fact that we can complete a whole team for once. Boo hoo got that right! Just asking for more figures, wow touchy

  5. I love this topic, because my biggest problem with wave lineups when there being done is, why a character who is so obscure, The Guardian or 80's Vigilante instead of a possible villian for the B-lister in the wave. A sample would be for wave 8 instead of the Vigilante, how about "The Shade" JSA villian to Hawkgirl, Mr. Terrific, and Dr. Fate (all JSA Members) or wave 9 instead of The Gaurdian minus the News Boys? You could have used an GA Villian, like Rainbow Archer, the Red Dart, Clock King, Merlyn the Archer, Ozone, Printer's Devil. It's a stretch I admit but make a couple of line ups that make some kind of sense, like wave 3 or wave 11. Nightwing or Robin V Deathstroke, GL v Sinestro Perfect! Green Lanterns John Stewart or Katma Tui or even Kilowog v Shark or Cyborg Superman Hank Henshaw. I have no problem with figures like Mantis (if you can find him) as a new god addition or Robotman if your gonna add future Doom patrol Members, but I'm just frustrated when I see Guardian being made before Martian Manhunter Professor Zoom Vixen Ra's Alghul Shinning Knight Circe Hawk and Dove GL Kyle Rayner or Guy G. Any Blackest Knight Characters? Ravager Jericho I could go on and on, but I digress.
  6. Gotta agree with everything here, Like to add Conner Kent Black t-shirt SB & Wonder Girl/ Cassie Stargirl and Stripe (future CnC) Jericho & Rose Wilson (Ravager) How about a 4 pack (Mytzlplyk & Bat-Mite with Krypto & Ace the Bat-hound) Shinning Knight & Vigilante-JLU style
  7. I'm the same way, display and customize or upgrade paint jobs!
  8. P.J. Plum. Oh no. Mine would be Ben University. Better than Ben Dover. Or Ben Withim. Crap, mine would be Rookie Rockford
  9. I open everything, they take less space this way, plus you have to build the figures. But I do admit to keeping extra Rare figures in the package, like DCSH Cyborg Superman or extra Wave 5 series. Got to have a couple of "toy trophies" on the wall, but not to many. Gets to expensive and I don't like tying my money into something that's going straight to storage or in closet. If I can't grab it and appreciate it what's the point of spending money on it.
  10. I spoke to a rep from Hasbro last year at comic con in there display booth regarding this exact topic, he proceeded to tell me that the U.S.S. FLAG would never be re-released because of the high cost it would be for consumers. He mentioned a crazy price of 750.00 which made laugh. He said that the demand is not there for such a high priced item. Also it wasn't cost effective to Hasbro, and we all know if you can't repackage an item and sell it like 5 times to each customer, it's not worth selling.
  11. This topic is funny, I always tell my friend niptuck that I'm quitting this line cause I don't have the time to hunt these rare figures down and I have ton of scalpers in my area where they even have a place where the sell all the stuff every saturday and sunday in oakland. Then he or I eventually find them and all is well. He's cracks up everytime I tell him I'm quitting since I've been saying this to him since wave 3. But he always comes through for me and he scored me a wave 10 recently so I'm still collecting this damn line. Hay mattel and Wal-mart how about stocking these figures more and randomly through the day so anyone can find these.
  12. You are so right, I've been lucky enough to score both wave 5 and wave 10, I have like five wal-marts within 5 miles from me, But I've only seen these once ever, I have friends who are always looking too and have never even sniffed these, I always give the extra figures in the set IE Joker wave 10 or Riddler wave 5 to my friends who don't even have a walmart anywhere near them. I feel for everyone who's frustrated with both of these companies. Mattycollector (mattel) and Wal-mart can both Suck It! DON'T Buy These From SCALPERS
  13. AHHHHHH, Finally scored wave 10, now I can die in peace! Mattel you suck for making this so frigin difficult. Thanks again niptuck!
  14. We know Do you know, I don't quite believe you, let me make it clear to you I HATE MATTEL I HATE MATTEL I HATE MATTEL I HATE MATTEL I HATE MATTEL I HATE MATTEL ME TOO!
  15. This has to be my all time favorite topic, great forum.
  16. I went to anchorage with my wife and son 2 years ago in august, not to hot during that time like 72, beautiful landscape. Lots to do, fishing shooting everything you do here in the lower 48 as alaskans call it. Just a couple of places to hunt for figures but I did score DCSH Two-Face, Cassandra Cain Batgirl, and Catwoman when I hit up Toys r us, walmart was stocked with comic heroes at the time Savage Dragon, Judge Dread... and such. Not bad but they don't get a tone of stock and figures were 2 dollars more a pop up, no sales tax!
  17. What part of norcal are you from? I'm in Sonoma county. I wish the scalpers would buy the rest of wave 7 from my TRU. From Redwood City
  18. Thank you so much for the input, I'm in the bay area and there are Scalpers everywhere, and they even have a wherehouse where they sell all their items, and when you ask for a price they go on the internet to find out how much is it going for on ebay, sad.
  19. Sorry, but I'm pretty new to the Toynewsi forum and I appreciate the good intel on the release of figures and information regarding new characters in the DC Universe Classics line by all who use this forum, It seems to me that just about everyone here hates Scalpers, What is a Scalper and what constitutes one as a Scalper Ebay? Pallet Case guy I'm under the impression that it's a guy, one of those idiots that run to the Hotwheels Isle and when he doesn't find his precious toy, runs over to the figure isle to pick items up for someone else but has no interest in those figures, just whatever value he may get from ebay. If you have the time please clarify this, thank you for your input.
  20. I'm used to getting everything, all variants and two packs and exclusives, but with the price hike, I'll be getting only A listers or key figures from my youth, definitely not the entire set. Unless they come out with a BAF of Darkseid or Doomsday, then Damn...you got me again Mattel. Or I'll look to get the missing pieces on ebay or shows.
  21. Look, I have no problem with Mattel saying to collectors that Gleek is a Comic con exclusive only and won't be sold online with the twins. I'm trying to look at this from an angle where I live in Nor-cal and spend on air fair, registration fee, cab fees, hotel fees just attend the comic con for the last 7 years, anyone who goes to any Comic Con knows how much you have to spend in order to attend one of these, and the least they can do is give anyone who attends AN EXCLUSIVE to the CON, so what's the point of calling the wonder twins an exclusive if you can buy them on line in a week. So in saying this, a lot of money is spent even before I get in line to get a exclusive from any company like Hasbro or Neca or dumb a$$ mattel. there should have been enough Gleeks for every Wonder Twins sold at the con. No Excuses Mattel, but once again you live up to your reputation of being total idiots. If you ever had to deal with Mattel at the con you know exactly what I'm talking about. Last year was the worst, changing rules while people are in the middle of the line, selling cases to dealers, and limiting 1 or 2 to people who were in line for hours. No Excuses, This portion of the company (Mattycollectors) who deal with collectors have no respect for the amount of effort and money we put out to receive their products. My 2 cents are up P.S. Absolutely NO surprise that they lost or misplaced a box of Gleeks, Their collective IQ is the same as a box of rusty nails
  22. You can use A free site like Photobucket.....you can download those pics on to photobucket and they will host them for you for free....then you just post the link here Thanks, I'll try that.
  23. Hope this works, here's my Hawkman McGuiness style, and Bane
