  1. Got all of wave 10, also got the Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned DVDs. My wife also ordered me all of wave 11 that will be coming in next week. I got my kids Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe for PS3, more of a family gift. I got my wife The NEW Super Mario Brothers Wii game, and Wii Sports Resort, again, more of a family gift. Pretty good haul over all.
  2. Question to those that ordered wave 11 from Matty today. I was checking my bank account online and I noticed that I was charged twice my Matty, and than had a 3 refunds/credits billed to my account. I called Matty/Digital River and they said everthing was good and that I would indeed recieve wave 11 on the 30th. Just wondering if you had the same thing happen to any of you. I have en extra $260 in my account from the credits from Matty, but soon expect that to vanish, LOL
  3. Just checked my e-mail and it says my order has shipped as well. Says it is scheduled to arrive on 12/30/09!!!Hopy Crap that was fast! I wasn't expecting so quick but sure will take it!!! Way to go Matty!
  4. waiting on wave 11

  5. I got lucky and won a Hawkgirl in a SDCC contest that was on another fourm that I belong to. Several months ago, I got lucky and found a Gentleman Ghost at a local Target, but that was the ONLY time I have seen him! The only figure I have found ONCE and never found again was Vigilante. I saw him once and I gugured that I would be able ot find him gain with NO PROBLEM, but I was sorely mistaken! I had to buy him on e-bay this week. I just couldn't wait any longer...I never saw the Worlds Best Robin, one figure that I really wanted a double of.

    DCUC

    My son is the same way! I wish I could have bought him each wave, but my wife put her foot down with just me getting each wave, LOL. My son is 3 as well and LOVES all of the DC stuff! Cartoons, movies, my toys are comics! he has a few of his own DCUC. He has his favorite charcters. and he is getting a DCUC wave 10 Joker for Christmas as Joker is his favorite! I love that he loves all of the same things that I do. Makes me really proud!
  7. 1) Wave 3 - You have some REAL heavy hitters in the wave. Robin, Nightwing, Green Lantern, Deathstroke, and Sinestro, PLUS Grundy as the BaF...no way you can beat this wave. 2) Wave 7 - It was a REALLY awesome wave! Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Flash, Kid Flash, Captain Cold, Big Barda, Aquaman with Aton Smasher BaF. They had some great figures in the wave, and gave us Justice Leaguers that I didn't think we would see so soon. 3) Wave 10 - These are great! Joker is the Stand out of the wave, followed by Man-Bat, Beast Boy and Robotman! I knew that Power Girl was gong to be a great scuplt. I do like the black suit Batman, looks good. Not to crazy about Forager, but a very cool looking figure. Imperiex is an AMAZING looking BaF! The colors make him stand out!
  8. Son of a......exactly that area I used to live in!!! Dammit!!!!! @grumpy@ I should have stayed in Albany!!! LOL!! I was born there and still have family that lives in Schenectady and surrounding areas. Small world!
  9. I thought he was from the bay area? there is a guy named "studmuffin" on fwoosh. He posted a pic of 3 boxes he picked up today. the guy on matty's facebook is named "ted galifinakas" or whatever... he posted the SAME picture as Studmuffin, from the bay area. The Ted guy is all saying how he is a photo manager at walmart and he bought all of the wave 10 stuff and is making tons of money on them. The Studmuffin guy posted pics of his first finds a couple weeks ago, and now he scored 3 more boxes? I think we know why JJ isn't finding any I've dealt with studmuffin on another board and he's a TOTAL douche bag! I called him out because some pictures he posted on the other site I am active at and he had 20 Gleeks. I said something to the effect that "Scalpers suck and anyone that got more than one Gleek was wrong for as many as they got" and he got all kinds of pissy at me. He's a scalper and loves to trade stuff for hard to get stuff. I offered to buy a figure from him before he attacked me and he said, "sorry, if you can't get me what I want, you won't get the figure you want." or something like that.
  10. I somehow doubt that all of the wave 10's are making their way to Texas and Oklahoma. The Wal-Mart I found them at was a shot in the dark. It's a Wal-Mart that is pretty far out of the way. I was doubtful that I was going to find them there to begin with. I really don't think that wave 10 is only showing up at certian Wal-Marts or anything, but I think it's more of a random thing.
  11. He was the hardest one to find. I happened into a Target on a Sunday Morning after church one morning while the wife was shopping, and there he was...only took me 2 months to find him. I'll keep an eye out for you.
  12. Found wave 10 at the Galveston, TX Wal-Mart. I got all 7 figures. I am REALLY happy that the hunt for wave 10 is over for me! We had a doctors appointment for my little girl at the hospital. Left the hospital and made our way over to Wal-mart and the first one that caught my eye was Man-Bat. I looked through all of the pegs and saw all 10 figures.
  13. If it is true, that is a great story...I wish I could just find them in my area. No scaler work here, just no product.
  14. Opps, sorry for the double post!
  15. HA! I talked to them 2 weeks ago and they PROMISED me that I would be getting a call from the manager of the manager, and still nothing. Yeah, the customer service rep was nice and all but I think they more or less were just giving me a line of BS like most of the toy department managers do. They claim to care about their customers, but I from everything I have seen, they could care less. Oh well, that's just the way the ball bounces. I'll get a set of wave 10, one way or another.
  16. I WISH these were hitting big in Texas! I know of one area that has gotten 3 cases, but everything else is a lone case and than nothing. I seriously doubt there are 2 sets just sitting on the pegs. I have been huntng these since Sept 21 when I first heard that these had hit. Mattel AND Wal-Mart need to give their customers the products they want.
  17. Mattel needs to make sure that these exclusive waves are made to reach everyone and not a few. This is really stupid on Mattel's part. Has Matty said anything about wave 10 since it came out? I know that they promised that wave 10 was going to be in more stores and be easier to find. I hope it's not another broken promise.
  18. That would be VERY helpful!
  19. I was going to pick up any extras for fellow collectors but I haven't found any. I had 9 stores order one case of what I thought were going to be wave 10 cases. Turns out the first 7 or so were Best of cases with helmeted Barda, Flash, Kid Flash, Dr Impossible, Firestorm, Wonder Wman, Blue Beetle, mullet Superman, reg suit Superman. The last one had got in 2 cases- yet another Best of case and yes a wave 10 case. I was going to take the whole thing but I'd never dealt with this store's toy manager before and the prick said the store honored a limit on collectible therefore he walked back to the stockrom with the extra Batman, Power Girl and Joker. I went back later and they were gone so either he bought them or someone else got to them before me. Today there was another store that got in a case I think and I think it was wave 10 but last night I couldn't make it out to the store like I had been doing. When I went in today there was nothing new but had the clerk scan with her telxon only to now show none on order meaning a case came in. While I'm talking to her a stocker from the store came over and told me he knew what I was talking about and that he had put out the case last night and it was just more of 6/7. Baloney! I took a mental stock of what was on the pegs and there were no new 6/7 figures other than what has been there for 6 months. I had her check the back but nothing. I have a strong suspicion the stocker got the case. I'm out of walmarts within a reasonable distance of my home to check since they all got in the case they ordered for me and out of all those two cases came in and the rest were Best of cases. I'm beginning to wonder if there was a shortfall on wave 10 and Mattel is compensating the stock that Walmart was promised with Best of cases to fill in for the underproduction of wave 10 cases. I hope not because I was sorta thinking about getting a second set. Degra, Where in Texas are you?
  20. I would also be intrested if this is still going on. I, like everyone else, is looking for wave 10.
  21. I did...I hit six Wal-Marts in my area, nothing...going first thing in the morning before work at about 7 AM.
  22. Wave 10 was found in South Houston this morning at a Wal-Mart no-less than 10 minutes from the house. Another collector got to them an hour before me...sigh...story of my life LOL
  23. What makes you say that they oversold wave 9?
  24. Wow! They are throwing news out early if it is true. Could be really cool, if it is indeed true.
  25. 5 Wal-Marts with in a 20 miles radius of me. The closest one doesn't have anything. They just rearranged the whole store and they moved the toy isle to the other side fo the store. Since the move, they had 1 Captain Cold, and no nothing. I don't see any tags or anything, so I have no idea what is going on there. The second closest Wal-Mart had DCUC...a few All-Stars and wave 6 and wave 7. I see Firestorm, Captian Cold, Dr. Impossiable, Mr. Miracle, Captian Marvel, and Killer Moth. The third Wal-Mart has nothing, never has. The forth Wal-Mart was where the first DCUC 5-Pack was bought but now the only thing that they have is 2 Mr. Miracle's. They also had 1 red Parademon. The fifth Wal-Mart has some wave 6 and wave 7. I really hope wave 10 is going to be easier to come by!
