So glad I had each Watchmen figure shipped separately by an overpriced slow shipping company, instead of having them all shipped at once. And they all sold out, too, huh?

Thanks, Matty, for again being a completely lame suck ass jerkbag!



And the thing they do not understand is you getting screwed like that influences future purchases. TG Says shipping is not a money maker but as someone who ships all the time I can tell you they are making money off it. They just don't get it, offer all the Watchmen figures at once you would have got more sales. I always wants DCIE to be like 2 to 4 waves a year. Maybe 4 to 6 figures at once with a build a figure piece, just like the good old retail days. I honestly believe it would have lead to higher sales. $10 + to ship one six inch figure with no packing material is just insane. Its sad cause I know I sound negative but I miss when Matty.com was the place to go and awesome now it is chopping off its nose to despite its face ...

Oddly, there are very few Aquaman figures on eBay. Not many people trying to sell one. Even the scalpers are staying away!

Either that or the scalpers just haven't received them yet. I ordered first thing with early access and mine arrived this morning.

That's true. Although there are 20 times as many auctions for Hydron as there are for Aquaman.

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.

Glad you got yours, though. Mine should be here in a day or two.

Got my Aquaman the other day. His hook is on the opposite way compared to the picture on the packaging.

He's just another figure of another unfinished team.

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.

.



But that's because everyone who didn't want a Hydron- still got him in their subscription- Im posting mine today

However-- if they wanted Aquaman -they bought him, if they didn't-- they left him at the store..

I think the most popular out of the four will be Ice.

Yeah I would too and he is the only one I want. My friend has early access and says I can use it but I loath buying one measly figure and paying shipping. If I can get enough people I would prefer to buy in bulk and save on shipping otherwise I will shop around on Ebay for him loose around his release.

There was one booth at Wizard World Louisville today that had DCIE figures and they were charging $40 each for them. Some of the figures I could kind of understand that pricing but they're gonna have those Constatines and Phantom Strangers a very long time...

I forgot to mention I am tax free in NH so if people want get on my list for Damian PM me. If I get 9 other people odds are you will pay less or right around what you would from Matty.com.
