Looks like he's short-packed. I know there'll be another one with a submarine in 2008, but I wanted him before that!

Hopefully as more cases get pushed through between now and Christmas, he'll become easier to find...

You mean Aquaman is being packed with the submarine? If so that would be great.


That's what I assumed from the pics we saw...if not, that would...suck.

Well, I want Aquaman's trident and I doubt they would pack that in with him in the Submarine pack.

I hate to admit it, but despite my shouting about how great this line is, despite running a quick poll to see what folks wanted most for this line, and despite campaigning for including the Titans and Legion in this line,

I still have not bought a single thing from it.
I have not seen Aquaman. or GL. or Lex.
Maybe its not finding any JLU that makes me shy about a new line.
Maybe its realizing I already have figs of most DC characters, so why do I need another copy of character X in the same 6" scale. That is what kept me from the DCSH Bats and Supes lines.
Another issue could be the cost. 8$ each seems too much to me.

I still love the look of the line on line. And will gladly follow its progress. But until I see an Aquaman on the shelf, don't expect me to buy into the line.

I'm fortunate in that I have found all 6 characters relatively easily...even found Lex twice.

But I have not seen Lex, nor GL or Aquaman, in weeks. Only saw Aquaman once, the time I bought him, and he was in the pre-school selection in TRU. All I'm seeing in TRU, K-Mart or Target are Batman (tons) and Superman...not even seeing Flash all that much.

I don't know how well the line is selling, but I really don't have high hopes for any kind of substantial roster of characters from this line.

They are all in good supply here , including Aquaman. Oddly enough the Flash is the one that the stores dont seem to have )excluding Big Lots). I still need to pick up the Batmobile for my son and then his Christmas 2009 is complete along with the Spidey and Friends guys !

I've only seen Flash twice and I haven't seen Lex, Aquaman or GL at all. Makes me not want to collect the Superfriends.

I see Lex and GL at just about every Target. And now Aquaman is making appearances there.

It doesn't feel like a hard line to collect at this point.

Which reminds me... I've taken pictures for a feature on them that i've never put together.

Grrrrr... gotta add that to the list!

I've only seen Aquaman and Lex once. Never seen GL or Flash. and the same Supermen are always hanging on the peg at Target with TRU housing all of the local Batmen...This line is far from collector friendly. Not that I'm collecting them mind you, I'm getting them for my son and I would like a Flash for myself but am trying to avoid paying shipping. You'd think that since this is a preschool product they would want parents and grandparents to be able to find the toys, they can't buy them if they can't find them, and let me tell ya, they don't want the Supes and Bats...

It's odd to hear that we're not all seeing the same figures with regularity.

I personally have never seen GL or Lex on the pegs. I see Flash easily enough and have seen Aquaman a handful of times. I've only ever seen the full asst. of Batman variants at TRU twice.

Seen GL and Lex once, at a K-Mart, of all places.

Seen Aquaman once, at a Target.

I see Flash every now and then. Disappears fast, no pun intended.

Saw three different color variations of Batman all at once at Big Lots, I think.

All I usually see are Bats and Supes, but they don't clog pegs.

All in all, I'd say that the line is not yet collector friendly, but the figures are selling well.

yes, I would say this line get bought out to the point of getting restocked at my local Target. The pegs go from having just a few Bats and Supes and no Flash to having all 3 again. No sign of the other 3.

The ratios weren't consistent at my stores. Target had the best variety, where TRU has multiple versions of Batman and Walmart has Supes/Bats only.

I saw Flash again at Wal-Mart yesterday.

I've managed to find all 6 of the current characters, although the ones I see most are Batman, Superman, and Lex. GL and Flash took some work, and Aquaman took my soul. Since buying Aquaman for myself though, I have seen him three more times, so they may be pushing more balanced waves through the pipes.

The closest Wal-Mart to me doesn't even carry the line. I was just there today and they didn't even have the WM exclusive Marvel Legends 2 packs...
