I've had some weird luck lately. I found a Joker pack at a local Target along with, of all things, an original Starman (single) & original Atom (single). The cards were fairly beat-up on the blue card singles.

But, what's weird is I was recently thinking of getting a single Starman off eBay just for the staff. What are the odds of that???

Then a day after this I was driving by a TRU & decided to look for the 5 packs exclusive. No luck there but I found a Stargirl/Parasite pack hanging all alone on a peg. This is the first time I've seen this pack at retail near me.

Anyway, my guess is the sporadic shipping of the new packs will change closer to the holidays. I'm betting, like last year, there will be much better numbers of recent/past waves (Volcana & Barda) then. I just can't imagine Mattel would make such low numbers of these after spending all the money on the moulds. I remember when the JL were hard to find. I still see these things warming the pegs.

After 7 months, I finally found new JLU last weekend. I got the Hawkman 3-pack and the Joker 3-pack. They only had one of each. I passed on a metallic Super Family 3-pack.

I still need:

Stargirl/Parasite 3-pack
Volcana 3-pack
Barda/Deadshot 3-pack
Obsidian 3-pack
Star Sapphire 3-pack
Blue Devil Single
Shining Knight Single

I think that's everything that's out that I still can't find that I need.

Lets see here, I still need -

Volcana 3pack
Sand/Star Sapphire 3pack
Vigilante/Brainiac/Obsidian 3pack
Barda/Deadshot 3pack

I have all of those but Sand/Star Sapphire 3pack on preorder from BBTS. And Im not counting BLue Devil as being out until it really starts to hit.

My target and the one indy toyshop here are starting to get new JLU so maybe I can find some soon.
Also almost praying that Mattel announces an online store for the stuff at comic con. They probably wont though because that would just be to easy.

Well, I found Hawkman today. The only problem is the skin colored paint on his head is much lighter than his body. Usually I'm not terribly picky as long as the paint is pretty good. But, this is really bad.

What a bummer considering I've been really happy with all the recent figures I've found.

I bought it anyway but I hope to find a better one & return this one.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

I picked up the Hawkman 3-pack yesterday at a Target at Bowie, MD.

Wish me luck.

Gah! I found 2 Super Family sets yesterday--I guess that means I missed the other new 3packs. Incidentally, my Target like 5 or 6 Doomsday 6packs, but not on sale.

I found the Hawkman pack again. I'm willing to trade the extra one for Barda/Deadshot or Star Sapphire/Sand.

At the newly opened Target near me, they have about 5 Doomsday packs as well. Probably just to have it in the planogram in preparation for the Grodd packs.

Found both Joker & Hawkman packs in a Target here in Miami. They should be all over the country now.

Yup -- the colors on mine are definitely wacky. I didn't know if this was a common thing or not. Mine has a pretty normal looking head, but the skin color on the chest and arms is almost a grey/caucasian flesh tone blend. Weird looking.

BTW -- By sheer luck, I have found this wave in Kentucky (both this 3-pack and the Canary/Joker one). But I never saw the Obsidian wave, and have since picked up a few but not all of the figures from that wave on eBay.
