  1. Thanks, I must say I didn't believe Wal-mart would have the guts to go for such an off-beat group of characters. Maybe their execs/marketing directors thought Power Ring was Green Lantern, ha ha. Very nice looking set though.
  2. You know, it's ironic that you and I had almost the exact same experience with this wave when opened. I pre-ordered mine from BBTS and received them last week. My findings with regard to quality VERY similar. It's only good to be consistent when it's in a GOOD way, haha. Abin Sur - very loose mid-crunch joints, plus somewhat warped leg from the weird in package pose Low/Mash - super loose waist swivel Black Hand - bicep joint a little too far down on left arm, worried it will come apart w/ too much posing, plus double joints extremely not needed on him Kyle - awesome but loose waist
  3. If wave 18 turns out not to be true, my guess of the pack would be: Apache chief Rima the Jungle Girl El Delrado Samurai Black Vulcan (''prev'' version of an existing character) Yes if those don't turn up in a wave, I could see that, though Apache Chief would be 6" instead of C&C. Another 5 that would fit their description (though pretty obscure for retail) would be the Crime Syndicate - 1. Ultraman (new version) 2. Superwoman 3. Power Ring 4. Owlman 5. Johnny Quick
  4. Here's what Matty posted on the Jan 14 Q&A at Rumourbuster - 4) Presumably you've had a little time to evaluate how well the DCUC 5-packs featuring the Gotham villains and Green Lanterns have done… will there be any future DCUC 5-packs? Yes. These packs have done well and will continue in 2011 with an-all new pack to be announced at NYTF at our collector night on Feb 13 from 3-6pm. This pack will have five all-new figures. One of which is a new version of a previous character and the other four have never been in the DCUC line before. So I pose the question - who do you thi
  5. Any clue how big Robin is next to Batman? Say - is the same height as the trigon wave Superboy? Or bigger?
  6. Did I read somewhere that Vintage Wave 3 won't be out until January??? I hope I'm wrong, but that seems like a looong time since we already have wave 1 in our hands! G.Guard looks amazing and nobody wants to wait that long for him!
  7. Yes, indeed it does appear that wave 15 has been revealed. Looks like Starman gets the 50/50 (mod vs classic), Martian Manhunter is the chase figure (variant alien head) and naturally Golden Pharoah gets the stand. Interestingly, no CnC figure has been revealed yet. Honestly I hope it's someone I don't care about because this wave seems a little weak. Glad we finally get MM though...
  8. Hey anyone, need to ask a dumb question. I thought there was a topic to ask questions to "Matty" for their Q & A, but I can't seem to find it. Specifically for DC Universe. Any help would be appreciated...
  9. I have to agree w/ SuperPowers1980. Seemed like the quality was getting better for a while, now it's a crap-shoot again. My Copperhead's legs (hip joints) were very loose and Darkseid's regular glove doesn't stay on like it should. Kilowag (CnC) had stuck wrists until I gave them a good twist. Ironically the figure with the most perfect joints I've ever had (not stuck, not loose) is the Shark. Naturally that's my LEAST favorite figure. LOOSEST (not sure if that's a word) figure of all time in the DCUC - Red Tornado series 1 (legs/hips). He would do a slow-slide into a split every tim
  10. Speaking of Target... I honestly believe that Target hates collectors, at least mine does. Every time there is a sale (like last week's DCU sale for 8.99), there is next to nothing on the shelf (blue beetle, shazam, & dr. impossible). The moment the sale is over, magically a case appears. Why the %*{:content:}amp; else would any retailer have a secret, non-advertised sale?? It's not in the papers, no signs... if it wasn't for the awesome forums, I would never even have known. So again I ask you... what benefit as a retailer is there to having a secret sale? Try to clear out old stock?
  11. Man, you have it worse than we do. Question, where is Mattel based out of? I thought they were in Canada for some reason which makes the Wal-Mart wave that more crazy. I'm so tired of going to walmart and seeing bare pegs, that I'm ready to open one of the 5 packs sitting on the shelf and stuff those figures into single-card packages just to see something new on the shelves! Nothing from wave 10 or wave 9 for that matter. Haven't seen anything new in "retail" since atom smasher. Also on an unrelated note, if I ever do find wave 10 and I see some hot wheels seller trying to buy them, I wi
  12. Ooops I think I botched that image insert up. I'll have to put it on my free webpage and try again later, I'm having some password issues right now.
  13. I'll keep an eye out for you. Trust me, I feel your frustration. When some dude told me he was charging $60 for Joker and Powergirl at Mid Ohio Con - I wanted to go get my gas canister and some matches to burn his booth to the ground. All I can say is network. Be polite and find the Wal-Mart employees that can most help you. That's what I did, and were it not for the two guys that gave me the heads up I would not have been able to score the haul I did tonight. Toy scalpers are the reason I want to be a Toy Robin Hood, without the theft of course. If I can find a figure for yo
  14. Alright guys, this is only my 2nd post to the forums (been a while) but I need to vent. I live in a small-medium size city in VA. We have 4 walmarts within 15 min driving distance. Up until "Fall/Christmas" resets were done, only 1 walmart carried DCUC at all. Now a total of 3 out of 4 have dedicated 3 pegs each for product and so far NOTHING. For the normal non-exclusive waves, I have started pre-ordering them from online retailers, since we haven't seen anything since the Atom Smasher wave here. It sucks not finding anything on the hunt, but at least I have an option to not miss out. This br
  15. This isn't exactly a top ten, but I have been looking for a good place to post it. I have a few good ideas for 3 DC Universe waves that I reaaally hope Mattel takes a hint from. Of the stuff that hasn't been done yet (or hasn't been done as well as it could be).... how sweet would these be BAF - Brown MAN-BAT Joker re-do (hopefully the one I have seen pics of are real) Reverse Flash Lex Luthor (Silver Age pink shirt/suspenders) The Huntress Blue Devil Robin (Dick Grayson) [Nightwing 80's costume - variant Dick Grayson] Green Lantern John Stewart modern (bald) Green
  16. I'm new to the forums on this site. I have 2 questions for Mattel for the next round of Q&A. Regarding the DCU Classics figures- 1 - Can you tell me which retail stores are carrying DCUC? I have only seen them at Toys r Us, Walmart, & Target. Are there any others? Also, I assume it's up to the particular store whether or not they choose to order? Because out of 4 Wal-marts within driving distance of my area (15 min), only 1 of them carries them currently and they are not stocked heavily. 2 - The Wal-mart exclusive Metallo wave never showed up in my town. I was lucky enou
