Ten bidders willing to pay up to $100 for each of those loose figures in each auction (I counted 15 of them myself). List any released action figure of whatever you collect for $100 and try to find TEN whole bidders :wink: :P


Why?

Pre-release auctions on Ebay do not realistically translate to retail demand. Who cares how many suckers bid on these at $100 each when they could get them at a fraction of that price in a couple more months.

The fact is, all of these auctions had more than 10 different bidders.



Gosh... TEN whole bidders? Wow... that might just be enough demand to save this line from pegwarming!

As opposed to the fact that the movie is going to tank because some of the people on the Internet think it's going to suck.

I'm all for picking up the non-humanoid guys. I'm a sucker for GLs like that.

So far I see fish guy, crocodile guy, and...um...looks-like-Ben-10-alien guy.

Why doesn't the packaging look like the Lantern battery? That just seems like such a given with a line like this.

Again, some I like, some I don't. Nothing I love though. Guess I'm waiting till I see these on the shelves and decide then.

Oh yeah, I see myself getting a lot of those to bolster my Classics GL Corps.

I think this is our first look at the movie Guardians, isn't it?

I am confused. Which figures are in what scale? None of these are labeled in the gallery. This post implies that all of these are movie masters, but at least 2 of these pics have been posted elsewhere as being DCIH scale.

Actually, I don't think Green Man and Killowog are part of the 12. Those two will be Matty exclusive "oversized" Movie Masters and won't be at retail. Surely we will also get at least 1 guardian and Hector Hammond.

I really hope you're right, cause that would mean 4 more figures :mrgreen:

That All Star Superman looks good. I saw Superman vs Shazam in my Pay per View list this weekend too. May watch that soon. Would like to see that Vgame as a movie.
