Those two are definitely rare, just curious Ham, but aside from their gadgets and paint schemes, is there anything that make them unique from the other Supermans & Flashes with the same articulation?

Flash looks to be made of a different plastic, but that might be the camera's fault.

Flash and Superman are made with the standard 10-POA molds. Both figures have paint schemes and accessories that haven't been used since, though the gray version of Silver Storm Superman featued a similar deco. The plastic used for the Flash is nearly orange in coloring. so that could account for the oddness in appearance.

Volcana
Stargirl/Parasite
Star Sapphire/Sand
Big Barda/Deadshot
Obsidian
Blue Devil
Hawkman
Mr. Miracle
Fire/Ice

I only saw Grodd once

that Twin Turbo Flash was released over here when stores in Ireland did have JL :roll: and I got a one for one guy stateside that was looking for him-he seemed to be a popular figure compared to the rest though-maybe it was scalpers but I dont think so........

I did get Hawkman and the Joker from Big Lots last year. That was the ONLY JLU item I purchased myself in 2007. I got the SDCC exclusive three pack, but that was thanks to a good trader on this board.

I have also never seen a Shade.

I did see a Mr. Miracle at Target a week ago, but I didn't have cash on me. I went back the next day, but of course he was gone. Score that one my fault, but prior to 2007 I had every figure I wanted from this line except battle armor Lex.

I don't think I've left the hobby, I think the hobby left me.

Who can we all agree is the most difficult figure to find? Even if you have the figure!

I think it's Volcana

for those of us who have seen none or almost none of the ones shown at SDCC 06 or after, its hard to know that.

I've only gotten Stargirl and Parasite... The rest I check on ebay alot and Volcana is the most expensive by far and also there is only about 1-2 of her everytime I check.... That's just how I'm guaging it.

I never saw, Hawkman, Barda, Obsidian, Shade, Deadshot, Obsidian, Star Sapphire, Sand...
I got a couple off of ebay, but I'm in the same boat as you...

No spreadsheet? I keed, I keed.

Volcana is tough. I actually dont even remember how I got mine though...probably ebay. Fire and Ice are proving to be elusive.

I've actually seen Joker, Shade, and Blue Devil a few times each (well, not recently on Shade, but back when he was released.)

Saw Mr. Miracle once and grabbed him.

Figures I've never seen at retail:

Volcana
Sand
Star Sapphire
Obsidian
Big Barda
Deadshot
Hawkman
Gorilla Grodd
Fire
Ice

I've gotten all but the last three off ebay etc....lucked out on Volcana and got her for $10 plus shipping, though.

Here's hoping '08 will be better.

On ebay as of this posting:

Volcana: 1
Obsidian: 2
Hawkman: 4
Sand: 2
Vigilante: 30+
Mr Miracle: 26
Grodd: 9
Parasite: 7
Deadshot: 1

There may be a few I missed(I only checked Justice League listings and I did it pretty fast) but that's a rough idea of what is on there everyday. There are a few of these figures that are available in lots as well.

A quick scan of completed items shows that loose figures sell for about what carded figures sell for(although sometimes more, Barda's and Deadshot's sell for about $30 each loose or $30 carded together)

I'd agree with Volcana being the rarest of the retail releases. Weird, that a mass-release is harder to get than any convention exclusive.

I was kind of bummed that Mattel was talking about doing more JLU convention exclusives, then I realized Grundy and Shayera were probably two of the easiest to find figures in the last two years. I certainly paid more for Barda than I did Shayera.
