Hmm, I wonder how Wizard secured the rights to all these exclusives.

They probably bought overstock and for what they are charging probably bought it at full retail. I don't think there is any special relationship going on here.

Yeah because it would have killed Mattel & Wizard to arrange to have these for sale at the other two Wizard World shows for regular price. Maybe they still will, but I'd be surprised if that turned out to be the case. Sorry, but this deal seems a bit shady if you ask me.

Wizard has a history of being a little shady about selling things like this. Before the news of Captain America's death broke, they used their inside information as a news magazine to hoard copies of the comic in question to sell for inflated prices on eBay. I would guess that these are unsold stock from WWC, which means that, ethically, they should be selling these for con prices.

And it's funny they are offering the JLU ones, since most people had trouble securing them.

What's funnier is that Wizard's selling Man-Bat for retail. Go figure.

Yeah, wasn't that the price you could actually buy it at the con? I thought Wizard was in the business of outrageous pricing, especially on exclusives.

Only if there is demand, I think Manbat was kind of a flop.

Was ManBat a flop? I didn't realize that.

Well... I guess ToyWiz is selling it for $7 cheaper on Amazon, so there's that.

Well maybe if they had made him in his proper brown color scheme he would have sold better.

Actually Man-bat sold extremely well according to Mattel.
