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.
