Thanks for the heads up on CSC Mikey. I've never ordered from them before personally, but I've seen a lot of positive news on them online from others. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this line going forward. As I've said a number of times before, I'm really at a point where I have to start cutting back - particularly going into next year. I've collected the entire DCUC line so far (Waves 1-3, Lobo), and at one point considered trying to keep up with doing that. Now, I'm not sure if I can afford to do that. I might be going back to my original plan of sticking to the Bat-universe and then the main JLA-ers (and a version of the Nightwing-led Titans). We're making pretty good headway there with WW, Flash, Hawkman, Captain Marvel, etc. on the way. Once we get a Green Arrow, Black Canary, Martian Manhunter and a few others I could be pretty happy. Not saying I'd want the line to end though, because there is a lot of great figures in there of second and third tier characters as well. I'd also like to get at least one "main baddie" for each of the heroes, if they have one that works.
All that said, the line continues to impress. Really good quality all around and it seems like there is rarely a "stinker" in a wave, despite a few complaints here and there with scale issues, etc. I'd like to continue to collect this line in full, but its just an issue of budget and display space at this point for me. Way too much good stuff out there these days (SW, Indy, Joes, Marvel, DCU, MOTUC, etc.), and personally I'm going to likely have to cut the budget back considerably in 2009. Maybe I'll start selling some other stuff to fund this line, because it really is great. We'll see. I try to think now though "do I really need this character?", as I have to admit my exposure to some of the DCU characters are mainly from the JLU cartoon. I know more now than I did as a kid (where it was basically Batman and the Super Friends) because I read more comics these days, but when I'm making cutbacks its something I think about.
