Since posting the SDCC DC Multiverse reveals the other week I have gotten a LOT of other questions about the other figures and waves that they announced last year at their SDCC panel and this year at Toy Fair. I reached out to my friends at Mattel and got the scoop on where and when everything should be landing. There’s definitely some news and updates below so check it out and see where your most anticipated figures will land:
This wave featuring: Rebirth Batman, Bat-Wing, Duke Thomas Robin, TV Atom and Reaper is hitting stores right now. While I personally haven’t found any of them in my local stores other friends and AFi staff have found and bought some of this wave in stores already. The collect and connect figure for this wave is the “Rookie” Bat-suit.
Walgreen’s Dark Knight II Flash exclusive figure:
Starting to hit stores now. I found mine earlier this week. Be on the lookout.
Walmart exclusive Wonder Woman mini-wave:
This exclusive set of figures was announced last year at the Mattel panel at SDCC and is made up of: Wonder Woman as seen in DKIII and Wonder Girl. This wave also has an exclusive 2 piece collect and connect figure of Dr. Psycho.
See below for the update on this wave.
Walmart exclusive Super Friends Assortment:
This assortment is made up of 4 figures total in two waves. The first wave of Batman and Green Lantern are in stores now. They are repaints of existing figures in the colors of the old Hanna Barbara Super Friends animated series. They come with a Super Friends stand and cloth capes for Batman and Superman. The second assortment will be Superman and Aquaman. These originally started hitting stores up in Canada, but have since started to move to Walmarts in the US. As of this writing, I have never seen any of them in a Walmart store in my area. I did get an IM from a fellow collector this week that said he found them at his local Walmart in Indiana for under $17. For an update on the last 2 Super Friends figures see below.
The “new” Interim wave:
Here’s the biggest news- Something happened with Walmarts orders for both the Wonder Woman (DKIII Wonder Woman and Wonder Girl) mini wave and the second assortment of the Super Friends figures (Superman and Aquaman). The figures were already in production so Mattel made the decision to create an interim wave that will be coming to mass market. These figures will NOT be retailer exclusives anymore. The new assortment will be DKIII Wonder Woman, Wonder Girl (both with the Dr. Psycho collect and connect figure parts) and Super Friends Aquaman and Superman. There’s a possibility the Superman figure might be delayed and not ship in the initial cases. This wave will come between the Rookie wave and the Clayface waves.
The Clayface wave:
This wave is on track. Mattel brought a few of them to SDCC but there was not space to put them in the booth. They look great and Clayface is a real stand out!
This wave is made up of: Rebirth Superman, Batwoman, Two-Face, Green Lantern and TV’s Martian Manhunter from Supergirl.
Clayface will be the collect and connect figure. This wave should be out by the end of the year.
The Rebirth Lex Luthor wave:
This is the wave we revealed a few weeks ago. The figures will be: The Ray, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, Vixen, Bizarro, Baz Green Lantern and Rebirth Wonder Woman. The collect and connect figure will be Rebirth Lex Luthor. This wave is scheduled for early 2018.
