I don't know if it's old news, but I figured I'd post it since I didn't see anyone talking about it. It's in hand, with packaged photos, and it's on the west coast (huge surprise). So I would assume it'll be hitting everywhere sporadically within the next 2-4 weeks. Here's a few links:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-Universe-Cla ... 3a6db966b0

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-Universe-Cla ... 519c349168

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-Universe-Cla ... 1976wt_956

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-Universe-Cla ... 1976wt_956

Of course the prices are waaaay inflated, as per usual when waves first hit. I always use this as a gauge as to when they'll show up in retail.

I'm in no hurry.

I want them, but I won't mind if I can't find them until Feb.

Its kind of sad, this is the first DCUC wave I am not getting every figure.

I was going to get the whole set, but after seeing how SC Sin looks half assed, WL Flash is eh, Nekron not getting his weapon, I am just getting 4 figures out of 7, I may change my mind on GA if I see him in person, but I will stick with my DCD SC Sin and my DCD Nekron

Not as half assed as his initial Wave 3 release, -ugh- I just got that and man... the one I got at least is terrible.

Maybe one day. At first I want to get all the DCUC I want and then patch in holes using DCD... like I did with the Cosmic Treadmill and John Constantine so far.

Got wave 20 Dove in from eBay just now. And for less than retail. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. She looks amazing.

So is it confirmed that Nekron does NOT come with his Scythe? this wave is such a POS. A repaint of Flash. A Repaint of Flash (with a new head) a Repaint of Green Arrow (with a new head) a Modern Green Arrow (before hundreds of other characters waiting in the wings) and a redo of a figure we've already bought. Just embarrassing. And now the news that Nekron is incomplete.

Yeah I know it's a "Brightest Day" theme wave. Then why not Boston without his mask instead of GA? Why not Mera? Instead of RA or Sinestro? Ugh. Yeah. I'm still gonna get them all - but this is so clearly a half assed wave.

Unfortunately, it's no more or less half-assed than the new retail line Mattel is rolling out. Same feces different day.

Well if you break it down by figure...

White Lantern Barry - complete comic tie in, little to no value to most collectors but cheap for Mattel

Sinestro - a re-do people have been demanding since wave 3, can't blame them there

Hawk and Dove - pretty good set of figures if you ask me, new pieces involved and a comic tie in (i'd prefer the male dove but another female figure isn't bad)

Red Arrow - new figure, somewhat demanded, cheap for Mattel

Green Arrow - people have been asking for this version since wave 9 debuted, pretty good looking figure in pictures and cheap for Mattel

Zoom - people have been asking for this since the line began & super cheap for Mattel

Nekron - cop out by Mattel not including the scythe but a great figure otherwise. I think they'll repurpose the scythe into the sub somehow to attract some buyers they didn't already have

Overall, I wouldn't say it's too different than most of the waves we got with DCUC. Lots of reuse, some heavy new sculpting and parts on a couple of figures, three villains, one female.

Yeah, I'm really excited for this wave, for all the non-lantern figures. I get why fans are pissed about Nekron not having his scythe, but I could care less about this CnC. I want Hawk and Dove.

I guess. Aside from Hawk and Dove which I am over the moon for, I just think its so reuse heavy, and not in a clever way.

That GA should have been a variant in Wave 9- not Wildcat.
I LOVED the classic/modern variants like Firestorm, Booster Gold, and Aquaman.

That Sinestro should have been the variant of the TRU Two pack! A 50/50 split with a modern Hal. Not replacing another figure in a wave slot.

And we JUST got a Barry repaint a few months ago.

Seriously that prime slot could have been a Deadman with a new unmasked head or modern painted Martian Manhunter. Those two characters were way more important to Brightest Day.

Whateves... RIP DCUC retail.

And yeah, dont even get me started on DC all stars. That is a mess. To say DC is being mis-managed is an understatement. The only bright star is the sub. If they throw a surprise like Granny Goodness or Huntress, or a 2 pack with Platinum and Tin in there- watch how many subs they get for next year!

I have a feeling when Marvel Legends gets up and running that becomes THE 6inch superhero dominance again. And don't get me wrong... I think those first two waves of ML are a big ol Meh as well. But I think they are going to FLY off the pegs.

I have nothing against dropping in new versions of A-Listers. I'm dying for a disco Nightwing or Earth 2 Robin. I'd love to see an amazing Flashpoint Wonder Woman. I'm all over Hook Handed Aquaman. All A-Listers. All variants. Give me DCnU Batman or a badass repaint of the Demon from the new series. I'm all for surprises. But PlasticMan was THE ABSOLUTE LAST Flashpoint version of a character that I was aching for. And I LIKED Flashpoint! (yeah, I'm the one!).

And two waves in and not a single villain!?! WTF!? wheeeeeeeeew. Breathe Ted. LOL
