Good thing these are sticking around a bit longer.  I realized almost 40 mins after the figs went up that I had forgotten about Man-E-Faces.  6 months ago that would have meant I missed him, but I was still able to get one.
So either production numbers are up, or interest in the line has waned.  Either way, I've got him so I'm happy.

I think the biggest difference with the DC and MOTU sub is that the MOTU figures were first offered monthly.  They added the sub later, and the figures are still available monthly to pick and choose the ones you want.

For whatever reason, will not even be offering the DC figures unless they get their minimum for subscriptions.  I would like to think they would do it as long as they were close.  But to be at 25-30% with only a few days left, it doesn't look like that will happen.

I guess I understand why they are doing that.  But at the same time, I would think they should understand that people don't want to be stuck with crap that they don't want.

I guess the progress bar is actually working, as it is now showing around 25-30%.  Not good for those of us who would like to see these figs, as there are only a few days left.  The link in the Poison Ivy posting confirms that the line is done at wave 20 unless they get enough for the sub.
I'm happy with what I have already, but I would really like to see it continue for at least another year.

I decided to go for the sub.  Based on that progress bar not actually moving, I have a feeling it will be cancelled.  But if it goes ahead I'm in for the first year at least.  If they won't be at retail any more, then 12 figs a year is actually scaled back from what they've been doing as it's been at least 3 waves a year (and some of those waves were 7 figs).

I do have most of the characters I want, but at the same time I love the DC universe and it's cool to see some of the more obscure ones.  Back in the day I had collected "Who's Who", and spent many hours going over those and reading all the bio's of characters I didn't know.  So I'm guessing I'll be somewhat familar with almost anything they throw at me.

Yeah, after wave 20 it's mattycollector only.  Club DC universe memberships are available now, until Aug 5th I believe.

One thing I am unclear on - it says that the club will go forward only if they have enough memberships.  I'm not sure if that means only the club is dependent on memberships, or if them continuing to make DC figures available on MattyCollector is dependent on them getting enough memberships.  They've got a progress bar on the DC club, and either it's not working at the moment, or they have almost no memberships.  I would really hate to see the line die, so hopefully they either don't need the memberships or that progress bar is just not working.

The matty site has a survey for the first DC club "extra size" figure.  The options are Shaggy Man, Metron with Mobeius chair, Rocket Red and Blackest Night Swamp Thing.  Rocket Red gets my vote all the way.  It would be nice to round out the JLI characters.  The one I would want the least is the Swamp thing - but I have a bad feeling he would win.  I'm excited to try and get a Swamp Thing from SDCC.  He looks awesome and is a figure I've wanted for a long time.  But to get a black repaint of him?  When he's a character that to my knowledge is only a few months old, and has only been in a handful of comics?  No thanks.

This is great news.  Not only do I get to look forward to dc character minifigs (and hopefully they actually explore the DCU a bit, beyond Batman/Superman/Green Lantern), but this also means I can look forward to a Lego DCU videogame.  My boys know the DCU maily from me collecting the toy line, and the old Justice League cartoon.  But hopefully this means we will also have a co-op game that I can play with them to look forward to.

I'm not sure if they actually had Panthor.  If so, the stock was extremely limited.  I was able to get in as soon as they opened up the stock, I grabbed Clawful, Buzz-off, Hordak and Panthor.  Then when I went to pay it told me that Panthor was out of stock and I needed to remove him from my cart.  It was 11:03 at that time (CST).

For those who forgot about last months MOTU releases (like me), here's a reminder that Clawful and Buzz-off go on sale this friday.

Damn - I totally forgot about the figs going on yesterday.  I wanted Whiplash and Grizzlor, but now that I've remembered Whiplash is sold out.  And I'm not sure if I want to pay the shipping just for Grizzlor.   :-\

You convinced me Mikey.  I broke down and picked up Arkillo last week.  He's awesome  ;D

Oh you should get the ones you don't want - Arkillo is definitely worth it (plus Kilowog needs someone to fight).

Not a bad wave, and definitely better then waves 17 & 18 (though I really want that Anti-Monitor).  Magog isn't really my cup of tea, but he's still a nice addition.  The only figure I could do without is the Hawkman.  He's accurate as a GA Hawkman, but do we really need him when the design is so similar?

Just got my Moss Man and Panthor.  Panthor looks great on the shelf beside battle cat.  Question - where does the helmet come from?  This line has stayed true to the classic line while adding nods to the more recent one.  But I don't recall Panthor ever having a helmet.  Mind you, I never had him as a kid.  Does anyow know where the helmet is from?

Nice.  With Swamp Thing reappearing in Brightest Day, I was just thinking that he would make an awesome DCUC figure.
Now they just need to make a Huntress, and I think most of my want list is done.  Though I'm sure I could come up with 20-30 more I would like to see.

I'm curious to hear more about the Legion box set, but scared to see a price on it.

Today was my first time ordering in many months, and I HAD NO ISSUES?!?!?!  Bizarre.  They must have really cleaned some things up.  Either that, or no one other then me wanted King Hisss (I loved that guy as a kid).
I hope it goes as easy next month.  I must get Panthor.

Picked up my Kyle, Black Hand and Manhunter.  Nice figs, and Black Hand is especially well done.  My Manhunter has loose joints in the hips and won't stand on his own, but other then that this is a great line.  I almost picked up the other 3 just for Arkillo, but I really didn't need another Mongul, and didn't care much for the other two.
Considering this part of DCUC, this is actually the first wave that I haven't gone for the C&C figure, so that felt kind of weird.  Kinda liberating at the same time though  ;)
