Target is the only place around here that seems to stock them anymore.  WM here currently doesn't carry anything DC, and TRU usually just has a couple Supermen.  I'm really curious if Mattel's distribution will improve at all with the DCUC line next year and beyond.  It has been pretty ridiculous so far, aside from a few figures/waves.

I've seen the whole wave multiple times at Target in Minneapolis.  Catwoman seems to go quick, but the others aren't as hard to find.  If there's some you need and don't mind paying shipping, let me know and I'll try to snag them for you.

I could use a Two-Face. If there are older waves in the stores by you as well send me a PM.  ;D

Seriously?  This will be an easy line for me to skip.

I'm still at pick and choose point on this line.  I'd like most of the BAF figures, but it's just not worth it.  I really want the Metamorpho so I might buy all of series one for the BAF parts and the Penguin essentially ::)

I can't justify enough out of series 2 to get Grodd though.  I've got a bloody Firestorm sitting at home never opened that I can't do anything with and don't want.  I'm surely not buying yet another one.  And I don't need more Supermen.  As mentioned previously I'll likely buy Harley Quinn since there hasn't been a figure since I've been collecting this scale of DC.  I'm possibly inclined to get the Aquaman but since I already have a Alex Ross version, I might not spend the $$

To be horribly repetetive, between DC and ML figures, regardless of the sub-line, I'm really dwindling on what I'll buy.  Much too much in the way of repetetive figures at this point.  I am supportive of DC limiting the number of figures to finish out the BAF (5) but even I have 2-3 Supermen and probably at least a half dozen Batman figures.  I really don't need more.

Does anyone have the DC Direct Green Lantern Series figures?

If so can you post a pic of them next to some DCSH figures. I was thinking of picking a few up, Kilowog, Salak and the little blue guys specifically.

I saw this article over at AFI this morning, comparing the Super Powers line of the 80s to the current/upcoming DCUC line.  I can see the similarities, especially concerning the versions/style of the characters.  Not a bad thing necessarily though, I have fond memories of the Super Power figures I had as a kid.

Also, it looks as if Wave 1 of these is being found/received by a few people, according to this thread.  It looks like online orders and local comic shops, I don't think there has been any retail sightings yet, but it probably won't be too far behind.  I have admit, looking at these all together, they do look pretty nice.  I still haven't quite decided how far to go with this line, I know I'll get some, but not sure about all of them.

Thats actually my logic in collectingt his line. I am pretty much hoping to get all the Super Powers figures and then some random extras i really like.

If anyone is interested in parting with Metamorpho parts, let me know, I'm very interested.  He's one of the most memorable characters from my childhood but I'm really not that keen or in need of the figures from wave 1 :-\

Pictures of the figures over on the Spawn board as someone found these at a Target.  If anyone can help me get a Penguin in particular, it would be appreciated.

Is the DC Super Heroes Mr. Freeze the same as the one that came out in the Batman line a year or 2 earlier.
