A sale on those MOTU 2pks only mocks me. The glut of Luthors has ensured we haven't gotten any of the other figures. Still hurting for that Zodac. :x

Is he the one that comes with Hawkman? If so, I saw one of those at my TRU the other day.

And YJ is having it's second BOGO sale already? Do people need wave one again?

Stratos comes with Hawkman. Zodac comes with Green Lantern.

Too bad my TRU's don't have anything I need.

Anybody need YJ Vandal Savage? I don't think he was from wave one. I've noticed a few others that I don't think are from wave one either. I'm not collecting YJ so I'm a little fuzzy on who's in which wave.

FYI-Went by TRU and noticed that:

1- The Green Lantern Construct pack is now $10.98

2- The Green Lantern Movie figures (3.75 inches) are now $4.98

I figured this is their clearance price (even though it wasn't stated that the items were on clearance), so I bought a few. But just in case there's something in the horizon for Black-Friday... I saved my receipts.

I also saw the Mad Love 2-pack and bought it. I was charged full price, so I don't think it was part of the DC sale. By the way, the guys weren't kidding when they said that it was 1 or 2 to a case. Unbelievable!

PS: I just went through the process of boiling and freezing my Harley to try to get joints unstuck and warped legs realigned. Basically, standard operating procedure when it comes to DCUC & Mattel. But since this is a Thirty Dollar figure, I was wondering... Is she prone to breakage? Do you guys know of any incidents or accidents (ala Robin). Or designs flaws? The only reason I bought her is so that I could pose her doing goofy stuff. But if she is prone to break, I'll just leave her alone and watch her from afar. Anyways, any information that you guys have will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Ricky,
I have heard of several people having Harley's neck peg break off on them (similar to the Robin ankle problem). I don't know if Mattel made any running changes but the new Harley's plastic seems a bit less stable than the original Wave 2 Harley. My Harley's leg actually broke off when I was trying to use the boil/freeze method (the leg that was posed bent in the bubble). As far as I have heard it's just the neck breaking and the warped plastic leg that people have been complaining about. As you mentioned, it is a pain considering how expensive and difficult to find Harley has become. I hope you don't encounter either the leg or neck problem!

As Green Arrow would say... Thanks for the heads up and good karma, Pretty Bird! At least now I know to be extra-careful. So thanks again, I appreciate it!
