I will try to buy Plas.  I've liked that character since the 80's cartoon where he had Penny and Hula Hula around.

I noticed that Matty has released some more info on their exclusives, and it sounds like the "regular" Plas will be available after the show at the MattyCollector site.  The "suitcase" version is exclusive to the show.  I'm a little surprised that Plastic Man isn't a regular release for this line, as I think he'd be a decent seller, but I'll definitely be online trying to get one when they go up after the show.  I can do without the suitcase version, I just want a regular Plas.  I also have memories of watching that 80s cartoon :).

My guess is that they wanted to include too many parts for a regular release.  I am happy that we are one step closer to completing the Super Powers line.

Anyone attempting to order this on Monday the 2nd?  If so, can someone grab me one as I'll be traveling that day and I doubt it'll still be around when I can finally make it to a computer?

I got Plas in the mail yesterday from Matty, and I really think this is a pretty nice figure.  Our daughter thinks it is the best thing ever with all of the different accessories (and included Plastic Man glasses you can wear) that came with him, and overall it is just a nice exclusive.  Neat packaging, nicely done figure, and some neat add-ons.  I am always impressed with the quality of the DCUC figures, and this one continues that trend.  I've always been a fan of Plastic Man (still remember his solo cartoon when I was a kid somewhat), and although I think the character could have been included in the regular line - it does make for a nice exclusive too.  Hopefully everyone who wants one was able to get one.

I just scored one with the suitcase for just under $38 shipped off of ebay.  Took a chance because the listing only showed the blister card but it's listed as including the suitcase and the box is dented.  I don't really give two ***** about the box because I'm going to open him and I wasn't really looking for the suitcase (not all that important unlike last year's Gleek fiasco) so that's a bonus.  I might turn around and sell the suitcase to recoup some of the money.
