I'm really just trying to gauge interest in the line as it winds down. I thought Aquaman would be more popular. I'm guessing the remaining figures will be less so.
I thought so, too. Makes me wonder if things will jump from bad to worst when the $30 dollar Super Power repeats start showing up.
Yes, I agree. Interest seems to be waning, and those SP figures are a must-have for only a relatively few serious collectors.
I'm basing my prediction on future sales only on anecdotal evidence I've seen here and elsewhere. Some people were disappointed with Damian's scale, but his death has raised his profile. Female action figures don't sell as well as their male counterparts, but Fire needs Ice. No one seems to want Superboy (personally, I think the DC Direct version is much better). Frankly, it's hard to tell which one will sell better.
The whole point was to determine whether I would be better off getting the rest of the figures on eBay or joining with another collector to lower shipping costs. Aquaman cost me $36, and that's steep for an action figure.
