TRU has been drastically improving and carries tons of exclusives these days. I think you're way off base on them going out of business.

TRU's profits have been up as I understand it too. The restructuring of the company has helped a lot.

Yellow Lantern Arkillo

This is one dude who looks like he doesn't need a power ring to enforce his will.

These different lanterns are very interesting though. Have they always been around or is this something new DC came up with?

Well, Sinestro has had a yellow ring for at least 30 years. The idea of a Corps of Yellow came out a few years back. All these other colors are very new. Leading into DC's summer event, Blackest Night. There was a Blackest Night #0 given out for free on Free Comic Book day. Might be worth trying to dig up a copy.

Yea I knew the yellow corps had been around a while and Blackest Night looks very interesting.

Blackest Night #0 is worth getting. Especially considering you can't beat the price (FREE :D). I'd love to see a BAF Arkillo. That is one mean lantern.

What's with the blood vomiting from the mouth?

Either of:
1. The ring forcing the blood out of their system and replacing it with red lantern energy.
2. A manifestation of said red lantern energy.


#0 said I beleive all their blood is now replaced with red plasma energy and this is what is projected out of them is this this energy


---NEVERMIND-- I just reread superfriend and realized he said the same exact thing. :oops:

Mattel has hinted that DCUC box sets are a possibility but no information was given. So I was thinking what would appeal to me, and this is what I came up with:

Price point: $40.00 to $50.00
Store: Target (I think Toys-R-Us is going the way of Kay-Bee Toys)
Figures: 4

Batman (Crime Stopper Batman without the black on his cowl)
Batgirl (Barbara repainted black and yellow)
Two-Face (repainted in his silver age/bronze age colors)
The Riddler (in tights and headsculpt without hat)

Extras: a base and maybe a cardboard backdrop of Gotham City or Arkham
Also 2 batarangs for the Bats, two .22 calibur hand guns for Two-Face and some kind of question mark weapon for the Riddler
Lastly, a mini character pack-in like Bat-Mite or Ace the Bathound

I'd be interested in other people's ideas.

-Seth!

I LOVE that 4 pack idea! Awesome!
