Just came from Big Lots...Two Hawkman packs left...I got mine!!


I went to a Big Lots in McKinney, Texas (Dallas area), and didn't see any new JLU figures. All they had were Mission Vision, those Batman 2-packs, and I think that was about it.

But you're in Texas as well, so hopefully that means I might find something at Big Lots in the DFW area.

HEY! A fellow North Texan! Yee haw! lol

I called 4 of the Big Lots nearest my house and none of them had any. I have a feeling they won't hit until next week. Most of the stores I talked to though said their next trucks come on Wednesday.

bnjmnrlyr, thanks for the heads up!

I checked several more Big Lots today and saw several Hawkman packs and even more Joker packs -- left them all because they didn't have the version of Hawkman I wanted, and I spent too much at SDCC anyway.

I also got to open two cases of Superfriends and confirmed that only Batman, Superman and Flash shipped, so I won't worry about not finding Lex :)

Which area are you in? If you're close by, and if it's no trouble, definitely give a follow-up on this thread so I can see if I should head out to any certain Big Lots locations.

I'm in North Dallas - near 635 & 35. I physically checked the Big Lots in Farmer's Branch as well as the one on Forest. I also called about half a dozen of them, including Irving, Richardson, Plano, and downtown Dallas. It's possible that because we're further inland the trucks haven't made it yet. I'm guessing they'll hit next week.

Nothing in the Salt Lake City area...of course, I already have all of those but the Cyborg Superman, who I'm not that excited about...

You can call south Louisana a bust as well, I checked the 2 in Baton Rouge and the 2 closer to my house and they had the same garbage, nothing new. Maybe in a week or 2, I'll go back

The only Big Lots I checked this morning had the goods! :D

1Cyborg, 2 each of black Supes & Parasite (which I hadn't found anywhere yet) and also Steel. And the Joker & Hawkman JLU sets. Thanks for the tip guys! Anyone need me to check my other Big Lots for them?

I went back to my big lots this afternoon.
AND JUST MY FREAKIN LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!
They had everything new but the JLU 3packs. I was really hoping to score some from the Obsidian wave.
Maybe they will have some when I go back monday. And maybe target would have completely reset.

I went to a Big Lots here in Los Angeles. I saw Cyborg Supes but in another collector's hands. I did pick up an extra Hawkman pack for trade, left one behind along with a lot of Joker packs.

I'll match you for some of that "BAD LUCK" there.........
At least you found SOMETHING!!!!! I haven't seen any new
DCSH stuff since I bought the Blue Supergirl. Still need a
Parasite,{never saw him at retail},and a Black-Suited Superman.
And despite all the new "FINDS" by others,I have not found ANY
of the new Batman wave ANYWHERE in MD yet.....and NOW another
Superman Wave is shipping????? I thought distribution was
supposed to IMPROVE?????????????????????????????????????????
Oh and its not for lack of looking.I check two Walmarts,& two
Targets every day.Plus,once a week I hit not one,but two
Toys R' Us's. And thats just in Northern MD. Once a week I
check in a completely different area of MD. and still NADA at
the stores there as well...................
I have seen pallettes coming in in the mornings,and I've seen plenty
of the Superfriends,& my First Batmobile come in.The nice lady
who feeds me Hot Wheels says that they'll be out after the re-set.
But the kind WAlmart lady scared me today.She says she believes
Walmarts are going to drop the DCSH's,in favor of the "childrens-
line",the "D.C.Superfriends". { the emphasis on "childrens line"
being hers}.So,whats going on???? Have other Walmarts stocked
the newest DCSH Batman Wave at all?????????????????????????????
I'm not encouraged by what I'm finding out here in "the Free State".
the Man-Bat1
