Bad news for drewlam and I.  Walmarts restocked with Wave 1 yet again.  Sales had slowed considerably of late and I think this might not bode well for us Canadians going forward as these will sit for a while.  I know Drew picked them up at the flea market already and Scott helped me out, so we're both fine.  But I'm wondering about the future waves.  It seems like Mattel has a really poor handle on distribution up here and we saw that with the previous Superman/Batman line.  Getting the same wave of Superman/Bizarro/Supergirl over and over and over again killed it at TRU, I'm guessing getting wave 1 of DSCH over and over and over again will kill this line at Walmarts up here.   :-\  On top of that, because it has been available at major retailers, the comic shops locally haven't touched the line and reasonably so.

I'm thinking I might as well put my order in for wave 3 with Scott right now, because it'll be months if it shows up here, if at all.  The only duplicate figure I already own a version of that I'm happy with is the Robin figure.  Well, I have a really nice Alex Ross Green Lantern as well, but I'm not opposed to a second GL in my collection.  Consistency of scale is such a huge thing and it seems DCSH has got a handle on that, so good for them. 

I share you're concerns. My Wal-Mart recently picked up wave 1 for the third time. The first two times it sold quite well, but this time it is moving considerably slower. I'm going to be extremely disappointed if Mattel Canada screws this up due to poor distribution, because initially these figures were selling really well. If they just kept up with proper distribution they'd have a real winner on thier hands.

Did anyone buy the Indiana Jones with Temple Trap (ROTLA) deluxe figure.  I pulled mine out and before opening I was looking it over.  It looks like he doesn't have a thumb on his right hand.  That's a wee bit too much of an homage to the vintage line for me.  Anyone else have this problem? 

I'm certainly not opening it until I check some other versions at stores.  The pain is this is the only jacketed Indy I could find without moogly eyes.   :-\

Oh and I haven't opened any figures, so I don't know if the mail away promo even exists in Canada.  There's no marking on the packaging and the packaging is trilogo. 

I just picked up an Indy and Sallah at a Wal-Mart in New Brunswick and Canada does have the promotion as well, it's written on the back of the card in small print. What I'm wondering is if it matters if you combine tri-lingual stickers with the normal english ones as I'll likely end up with a mix of both.

As for the figures themselves, they're both great! Looks like I've got yet another toy line I've been hooked into.

New Hulk trailer is up!

Is it just me or did I catch a bit of the "Sad Walking Away" theme at the end of this?

I'm really not much for animated style lines, but I think I'll have to make an exception for that Jazz and Soundwave. They just look neat.

1. Torryn Farr
2. Bespin Guard (w/variants)
3. Hoth Rebel Trooper
4. Hoth Leia (resculpt, SA)
5. Wiorkettle
6. Treva Horme

8. Captain Piette
9. Bespin Han (resculpt, SA)
10. Dack Ralter

Empire is always the hardest film to come up with a list for...

HK-47 for sure. Fun character, interesting design, all the makings of a good figure. I'd also love to have a T3-M4 to go with him of course.

6/10 for me, but I want most of the others as well, they just weren't on my top 10.

K`Kruhk for sure. Just make sure he comes with his straw hat!

Some proper sized cantina tables and the bar equipment are what I'm hoping for in the near future. A new Jabba throne would be nice too.

1. Bom Vimdin
2. Dr. Evazan (resculpt)
3. Defel
4. Saurin
5. Reegesk
7. Baniss Keeg
8. Tonnika Sisters
9. WED15-1662 Droid
10. Brainiac

...based on the old toy line from the late 80's/early 90's? Having grown up with these, I would love to see them put out new modern sculpts of characters like Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady, General Traag and the like. I'd be on board if it was done well. Anyone else?

Wave 4 is kind of meh to me. I'll probably pick up the Fel set, but the others don't interest me terribly. I think the Purge set could have been handled better myself, both outfits just look kind of goofy to me, especially Koffi Arana. I think Tsui Choi would have been a much better and more interesting choice for this set.

Looking most forward to the ewoks myself. It'll be nice to have more than just Teebo in my ewok forces.
