I snagged a Plas glider off off eBay but I still REALLY want a Glomulus. So hopefully they're release the Larfleeze 2 pack.

Good news!: Stopped at a TRU today and they had a bunch of the 5-pack with Shazam ($19.99 + tax, Arizona). It does look like these won't be hard to find.

Bad news for me: I had already jumped the gun and arranged for one via Canadian helpers, so I'm gonna pay a premium on something that will probably sit in TRU for a long time. :D Oh well, you never know with the last few items in a line--sometimes you never see them on the shelf.

They also say in another QnA (or maybe on their own forums) that the "last wave" of 2 packs has been shipped and should be at retail soon. I hope they mean the Larfleeze, Glider Plas, etc. wave and not the Flashpoint wave....it could go either way.

I feel the same way. Now we need another follow up question that specifically lists the singles w/ accessories wave so we can figure out if that wave that made it out before or after the line was put down for a nap.

I just saw an exclusive five-pack at TRU.com. The description is annoyingly vague. I'm wondering if it's the same five-pack. What are the other four figures in your set?

The TRU exclusive pack is:

Batman (return of ... Costume)
Wonder Woman (JMS "pants" Costume)
Martian Manhunter (translucent green phasing)
Blue Beetle (Jamie w/Hands)
Cap Marvel/SHAZAM! (which is the key figure that everyone wants)

Oh, sounds good. Thanks!

I went ahead and ordered it on Sunday (along with a few other items) to take advantage of free shipping and 20 percent off.

I had been eying the translucent Martian Manhunter on eBay. Glad to know he's part of the set, too!

Overnight a few of the 5 packs showed up on eBay. My guess is people are starting to show up in stores and going right online.

Glad to help!

It's so much cheaper to order it online than to buy it at a TRU in New York. There is a markup of at least 10 percent at TRU stores in the city, even at the stores in the outer boroughs. I can understand higher prices at the TRU in Times Square because, well, it's Times Square. That store is always mobbed with tourists. But in the Bronx?

I found the 5-pack at my TRU here in Eugene, OR yesterday. Love the translucent Martian Manhunter.

My 5-pack arrived yesterday. I didn't get a chance to actually open it but the figures looked good. I can't help felling that I paid 20 bucks just for Captain Marvel though.

My five-pack arrived also, and I couldn't be happier. Captain Marvel looks awesome, and I'm really pleased with Blue Beetle (with hands!) and the translucent Martian Manhunter. And the repaint of Batman really pops!

IMO, 20 bucks for two variants, two repaints and one new figure is a good deal.

I ordered a few other figures from TRU.com while I was at it, and now I'm really tempted to go all in. But some of the Batman and Superman sets already getting expensive on eBay! :P

Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but there have been a few sightings of the "new" wave of Action League packs on eBay over the past 2 weeks or so.

Both the Larfleeze/Glomulous pack and the Plas-Glider/Atom packs have been offered. The first sighting I was aware of closed in the mid-50's for the set.

I haven't seen the other pack (Batman wasn't it), but I really do like the new White packaging.

Hopefully we'll see these hit retail somewhere somewhen soon. If not, I'll be watching eBay for my chance at a set!
