I mean it's Superman, and according to Mattel's motto, every Superman figure must be packed 4 per case or more and then reissued a few more times until the pegs are full of them like previous Superman figures. I just don't get it.

Because he's Cyborg Superman and he's packed 1 per case.

I stopped by the TRU on 21st Street in Tulsa on Friday and they had literally a dozen of the large Cyborg Superman figures. None of the 6-inch ones, but gobs of the big ones....

So was Bizarro, and you can't even give that one away after Mattel flooded the market with him.

I'm surprised about this also. Most kids wouldn't think of him as a villain. They just think of him as another version of Superman. Maybe Mattel learned their lesson with the Superman and Bizarro's overflowing the pegs.

Too bad it's not the repaint one with the signs, which I've yet to see. bossywog Mattel and their crap distribution.

Nothing is flooding the pegs around here. Maybe a few stray Supermen. I haven't seen any new DCSH since I found my Cyborg Supes at Big Lots. Nothing in Target/Walmart/TRU.

Nor have I. I already bought the first Bizarro, but I liked the color and sign on the repaint better, so I bought him when Wal-Mart finally lowered the price to $5 in the clearance section.

I have yet to see the 2-Up Cyborg Superman at TRU (only Batman, which I finally bought with a $5 Off $25 Coupon) and only found the 6" version at Big Lots. I still have only seen the Blue Costumed Supergirl once and that was at a Supermarket. Oddly enough, I have found the Knightshadow Batman wave, in full, a few times on the pegs, all at TRU, and once I found a Two-Face at Target. despite my luck with the DCSH Batman Waves (I found my share of Wave 3 as well), Thank Goodness I have the 999R case coming in the mail tomorrow from BBTS!

I haven't been able to find anything other than that really bad Superman figure from 3 waves ago and Knight Shadow Batman, about 8 of him...

Mattel needs to just release a case of Cyborg Superman, Two-Face, Batgirl (cass), and Blue Supergirl.
