Yeah, everything continues to look great for this line.  I've gone from picking and choosing to starting to consider picking up whole waves again.  I'd really like to get that Kilowog BAF, so I'll likely be in for that wave if possible.  Like others, I really hope this Wal-Mart wave is much, much easier to find.  The last one never came around here (or even in our state as far as I know), and this one has even more "must have" figures for me.  It is surprising to me that they put out such a big hitter like Joker in a store exclusive wave.  It is amazing how Mattel has such a crappy history with handling of lines (distribution, repaints, case packs, etc.) and now they seem to be putting out two of the better lines out there in DCUC and MOTUC.

Maybe I just missed them, but are there pics of this pack up anywhere?

Yikes... not liking the body or costume at all.  Waiting for the Movie Masters.

Just thought I'd post it here, as it fits well enough....just double checking, but do Mattel's SDCC exclusives go on sale on August 3rd?  I thought I had read that somewhere, but wasn't sure.  I'd like to probably pick up the Wonder Twins, as well as the JLU Green Lantern 3 pack.

And I agree 100% completely with you about the Wonder Dorks.  Without the frigging monkey, they're useless.  I was going to buy them, but not without Gleek.  So I'll have to beg someone going to the show to grab one for me or Mattel's not getting my money (and this seems like a common theme on most boards).

Guess I'm buying the Wonder Dorks on Monday.  I just won a Gleek from Fwoosh's contest.   ;D

I was at the show and couldnt even get Gleek.  One day they ran out of the Twins, the next day they ran out of Gleeks but still had the twins. The next day nothing. All sold out. What a mess. If they had put Gleek in the same package as the twins, this wouldnt have been a problem. But he was in a seperate little baggy and they seemingly had no control of how much of each they would get into the booth each day.

I actually kind of want to buy it, that Lex is cool.

That's a great set but I'm not too anxious to see what the cost is going to be (particularly given that I don't need another Superman or Batman).  I'll probably end up picking it up though...I've been hoping for a Two-Face (well, really any Batman villain) since this line was announced.

Found one of the wave 8 assortments yesterday - got both Parademons, both Dr. Fates, Hawkgirl and Gentleman Ghost.  GG and the red Parademon are pretty fantastic.  Still need to find an assortment with Vigilante, Commander Steel and Mr. Terrific.  I hear it's hit TRUs in our area so hopefully I'll have some luck.

It was listed in Walmart's computers at $55, which isn't all that bad I guess.

Sadly I'd probably pick up that box set, if I ever found one, but I doubt it will make it up north.  I'd like to get the Two Face and the Luthor, plus another Catwoman is always welcome.  Don't need a Supes or Bats though.

I'm definitely interested in that box.  If I see the pictures correctly, another batman and supes wouldn't be too bad.  It looks like the batman is the one from the clayface two pack without the mud.  And the supes seems to be the one from the brainiac two pack without the red eyes.  I wouldn't mind either of those (though I still want a definitive superman - and he needs to have a slightly wider/larger "S" shield on his chest).

I saw the Animated Batman DCU figure at Wal-Mart today - is that an exclusive?  I've never seen that one before.

By animated are you talking the black Batman Beyond?  If so, he's from wave 4 - but there was an "unmasked" version that I believe was a KB toys exclusive.

This is an unmasked version of Batman Beyond - he is holding his mask in his hand.  And I saw it at Walmart.   ???
