RR beat me to it.

I ordered one and it was pretty flawless.

The other possibility is that Matty views BBTS as just another customer and not a retailer..Its how fun pub views them in regard to their GI joe Collector Club.

Just to clarify, this appears to be a Diamond Comics Offering. You should be able to get your Comic Book Store to order some of the figures for you by using the product codes listed here and here. Mine is getting me a SDCC Swamp Thing for $10, the Ultraman/Luthor 2-pack for $7.50 and the Toyman 3-pack for $13.


Thanks for the tip! Just ordered the JLU Toyman pack from by comic book store! :D

I've literally gave Mattel thousands of dollars for JLU. And while they made many mistakes along the way, and there were several figures that it would be nice if they produced them, I have an awesome collection (sans the elusive Volcana). I don't miss the money, so I can't complain about the discounts now. Glass half full (of water).

Well, technically it was almost 200 unique figures, but again, glass half full!

Unique figures over 200 but if you are talking unique characters then yes it is somewhere around 190 I think.

Gotcha. Either way, it's a lot of figures!

Going to need some hand-holding here, as I'm not fully grasping this info:

Quote:
Diamond is distributing these. So if you have a good relationship with your local comicbook shop you probably can do even better than the prices on BBTS. Most of the 3 packs are $4 for the store price. I think the Toyman pack is $10 or $11 and the 7 pack is $10 at store cost. So if your shop owner is cool with you he can order them and probably save you couple more bucks. Unless of course he/she is looking to make more profit on something they consider a "special order".

I haven't placed any orders at this point with any comic shop, but just how exactly do you know the Toyman pack would come out to 10? And how would I use the codes you linked to (which now appear expired...I think) to get my comic person to get a discount?

Still need to get that pack...

Does anyone know what the 7-Pack is going for on Diamond Comics, seeing that I missed the BBTS preorder....

Set's are cheaper here. I just cancelled my BBTS order and picked up the 3 here I was getting there, saved about 16 bucks.

Hah! School is for suckas!

Seriously, I saw the Aquaman deals. I need him carded, unfortunately. Or, at least one carded, that is. Now, if Asia can crank out these Aquaman figs, what's stopping them from cranking out Volcanas now? :wink:

Lance, is there a SKU # on there? It would help check at my local Ross to see if they are expecting any of them. I'd LOVE to have a couple of those at that price.

I've witness some great deals at Ross in the past... Galactus & the Sentinels for $25... Batman & AzBats for $12... Young Justice for $4... but I've never seen a deal like that.
Did you run into the other Packs, or was that the only one you saw?
