$300 isn't worth it to me, as I feel that Mattel should have released it when they had the chance, and before they took her out of her single assortment slot. But if someone has the dough to spend on that figure, then more power to 'em.

When these newer Volcanas show up online, are they from the 'old' scrapped batches from either her changed singles wave slot or the canceled six pack slot? Or, are they 'new', cranked out of a Chinese factory more recently?

My cousin had to buy an entire JLU collection for $1,200.oo to get her for me.
That worked out to be $3.50 a figure.

People tend to have that volcana in their collection than the retail one. Only when they are selling it as a whole though.

The collection had both versions, but I sold mine and his to people here to help out.
I only kept the new one. No sense in me owning two Volcanas when people here
were still going without.

Maybe in a year or two Mattel will offer her as a con exclusive. :(

They have a hard enough time selling figures that have never been released before. If they re-released Volcana - a figure that a large portion of their fanbase already owns - it would underperform even further.

Aquaman isn't that rare either. He was everywhere for a while and people didn't feel like buying.

Disagree. Aquaman was part of the "blink and you missed it" split wave that included Deadshot, Firestorm, Barda, Star Sapphire and accurate Green Arrow figures. He certainly wasn't everywhere in the country by any stretch of the imagination, and the only reason he is not considered "rare" around these boards is because (at the time) the community came together to help each other out.

They will say no for sure. We can try but 4/4 they will say no.
