Okay, it's a day early but I got in and out of EA with no problems at all (well, other than my computer crashing and restarting at 10:50).

I'm only interested in Mr. Mxyzptlk and with it being $30 (plus shipping), I just can't pull the trigger. If a Total Heroes figure was available as well, I'd buy it (to save on shipping costs), but right now I can't justify the cost for such a small figure.

I must be out of my g.d. mind...especially after receiving INCREDIBLY bad and over-priced product last month on the Super Powers repaints...but I did it again, on even less desirable figures.

I'm in Canada, and my order...with shipping...came to $120. Even without the currency conversion, that's FORTY BUCKS each for a barely articulated Mxyzptlk, a Superman repaint of a sculpt I never really liked and a (to me) useless 'joke' figure.

Maybe I should check myself into the nearest looney bin.

See you in November/December for Damien and Doomsday, Matty!

I'm surprised. Nothing is at the "Almost Gone" mark, yet. I guess the price is keeping people away but I really thought that Mxy would go fast today.

Damien is December, Doomsday is supposed to be available for the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale even though he'll be full price ($40).

I got in yesterday and ordered the three SP figures. I miss the subscription and not having to go through the ordering process. I can't believe we're almost done with the DCUC figures. Bummer. :(

I ordered The Super Powers Mxyzptlk, Riddler, and Gold Superman yesterday, with the cheapest shipping option. They just got delivered to my door today. I didn't even think they had shipped them yet, that's crazy. And all three are in perfect condition, too.

Just a quick and dirty (and cheap) fix for Mxy's lack of a flying/floating stand. Mine is just balanced there for the photo but you'll need a bit of blue tac or double sided tape because he doesn't balance that well...

Much less intrusive and visible than Mattel's generic flying stands and a whole lot cheaper. The most important thing to do when buying these is to make sure that the stem and base detach from the vessel part. The first ones I found had the stem as part of the glass and just attached into a circle base.
