  1. Companies in power started sculpting children to give them endless funds in the early 1980's when they bought out our government and had the law overturned that previously did not allow companies to market directly to children. The following ironic steps then followed... U.S. Military helps fund television programming directly marketed towards children in order for them to be more accepting of the military and perhaps will be more likely to join when they are of age. Toy and Television show uses slogan "a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world." Some years later a real terrorist organization attacks our country. Toy and Television show then refrains from using the word "terrorist" in their slogan.
  2. With this analogy I can add that we're not really people. We're consumers. Hasbro and Mattel have designed us to buy toys in mass year after year.
  3. I read some where that someone picked it up at Walmart on sale for $40ish. Walmart.com had them on sale for about that price with cheap shipping as well. I haven't read any reports of people picking them up for 50% off though.
  4. I'll pick these up for TRU retail if it's not $15. They can't sell the other batman figures for 2 for $10 and they expected people to pay $20? They caught on that was FAIL... hopefully they'll catch on that $15 is still FAIL. Especially trickling them out as slow as one per month. This is like Chinese water torture... drip... drip... drip... Let me at all 4 Ghostbuters already so I can be done. I can't wait until they get the Thundercats license and trickle them out one a month... oy...

    I'm done!!

    Good for you Lady Jaye. Mattel sucks and doesn't deserve your support. Glad to see a fan with a backbone.
  6. I am an opener but for some reason I've only opened a few of my DCUC figures thus far. Out of all of the figures released thus far I think I only have 3 or 4 loose. This is partly because I recently moved and I know I'm moving again within the next year so they're all boxed up but it's also partly due I think to being on the fence about collecting Mattel's goods. Every time I collect one of their lines I end up feeling burnt by Mattel and give it up. They're currently living up to that by now charging $5 for a die cast Pixar Car and $15 (after tax) for a DCUC figure. They're gouging their fan base and destroying their brand longevity. There's always hope of Hasbro buying them out.
  7. Wave 8, 9, 10 and probably 11 have all been a pain to track down but doable. Weird how over shipping a wave or two can pretty much kill off a toy line.
  8. Don't forget that DCUC figures don't cost $12-13, they're about $15 with tax. This is an expensive hobby.
  9. 1 X Katmai Tui with constructs 1 X John Stewart with constructs 1 X Shark 1 X Cyborg Superman in Sinestro Corps uniform 1 X Steppenwolf (Red) 1 X Steppenwolf (Green) 1 X Deadman (standard version) 1 X The Question - fan choice! And of course all the parts you need to make Kilowog! ==================================================================== This is what I see on Matty's facebook page... No mention of Dessad or Darkseid.
  10. Wave 11 already? *head bangs against desk*
  11. Exactly. I'm always reading complaints (which in general gets old - focus on the positives in life) about how someone saw someone outside of Toys R Us waiting before they opened and that enough is qualification to be labeled a scalper. I spend a lot of time, too much time perhaps, being at stores at opening and now at closing for DCUC Wave 10 just so I don't have to pay inflated ebay prices. The thrill of the hunt is fun but sometimes I wonder how much I spend on gas just looking for toys and wonder if I'm actually saving or losing money compared to if I just bought those toys online. This was a much larger possibility when gas was over $5 a gallon. The key to me is communication. If you see someone that in your head you've labeled a scalper then strike up a conversation with them to find out what the truth is. You never know, you might make a toy hunting ally. If you find out they are indeed a scalper then you know you'll have to work harder perhaps to get what you're looking for. One last thing that I'm also tired of reading about is the doubt that employees call up their buddies saying they got the latest assortment or that they stash merchandise in the back for themselves. It happens. I've seen it at almost every store I frequent. I understand that every area is different but the chances of one person working at your local store having an interest in one toy line and asking someone in the toy department for help obtaining those items is probably very common. If you witness legitimate unfair practices happen you can always call the store's customer service number and report what you saw.
  12. I love things that Glow-in-the-dark. I'll definitely hunt for this one.
  13. I'm on the verge of giving up this line and Mattel all in one swoop. For some reason I've never opened any of my DC Universe figures which I guess is now a good thing if I decide to pull the trigger and dump them of all. One Target in my area already sells the figures for $14.29. There is no way in hell I'm going to pay that price considering the price for a highly articulated 6" figure was $7.99 just a few years ago and $10 within the last 18 months.
  14. I have one spot left in the league I'm in if anyone is interested or so kind as to fill the league. PM me your email address if you're interested. It's free and through yahoo. The draft is this weekend.
