As of right now, JLU and the DCUC figures are still "almost gone."

If they pull them, it should be in the next 12-18 hours. Maybe they'll sell out right at midnight. :roll:

I'm surprised that the DC figures have not sold out yet. The SDCC after sale is going on, but Mattel did not pull anything down. It's a good day to save on shipping!

I wish I'd known, I would've waited to order the Movie Masters figure along with the Mongul three-pack. Oh well, at least I was sure to get the big guy.

Got my Spikor and Wind Raider today. In under a week. That's a record. :lol:

I like Spikor's face much better in person than I thought I would. The online pictures didn't do it justice.

I received my sub order yesterday, my 7/16 order today... Amazing! Usually it takes two weeks, minimum.

The sad part is thst I am not happy with the paint apps on my JLU set; a sad reminder of one of the reasons I dropped JLU in the first place. Wonder Woman's breast plate is a mess, but really, it's Mongul. Looking straight at him, where the purple meets the yellow on the top of his head, there are purple dots instead of smooth purple. I am debating on whether to keep it or send it back. Disappointing. I guess I better check the other stuff out.

Got my Mongul set, too. I'm perfectly happy with Mongul, but Wonder Woman and Batman leave something to be desired. I'll have to look and see if mine has the same issue as yours, TRDouble. Honestly, though, I won't send it back -- I'll just fix it.

Batman's got black smudging on his face (actually, it's probably the black plastic peeking through the paint). I like this color scheme -- have we seen it before? If not, I may fix him.

Wonder Woman is BAD. Her face is misshapen, like the plastic didn't quite fill the mold or something. Her left eye is shifted way over and inward. Fortunately, I've got about 50 others so I'm not worried about it.

That said, quality control on this set is apparently pretty poor, considering it's 30 bucks. Yes, we've all got multiples of Bats and WW, but still, we should be able to expect a basic level of quality, if only so we can give, sell, or customize our extras. I hope the rest don't show up with problems.

I'll probably keep my set too, Bryan, problems and all. I can't remember the last time I purchased anything JLU and I skipped the convention sets and the seven pack, but I really like the characters in the final sets, so I am getting them. I just hoped for better quality control for $30 JLU sets.

Thankfully, my DCIE figures were mostly great. One of my Thom Kallor heads has a smudge on his nose, like he was packaged a little too early, but the head on my second set is perfect. And I'm not sure I will even display both figures now, since, IMO, he doesn't fit in with the Legion figures at all; he is definitely adult LOSH/JSA. Which is fine, BTW; I love my modern JSA setup!

That's good news. I'm glad I got mine. Because of the limited production run I have a feeling in a year these might become scalper bait. I hope I'm wrong but I'm glad I got him myself just in case.
