Do we even know what retailers will be carrying it?

There isn't a walmart remotely close to me that has a DCUC peg still up. The Meijers in my area are cleaning them out too. Targets are about 50/50 and I don't have a TRU really close.

I'm just wondering where these will show up, if they show up, or if any of you have seen them.

I haven't seen them at retail yet, but I'm not really overly concerned about it.

The Bats and Supes figures are already slated for wave one of Bat/DC Unlimited and I don't really care if I get them or not.

Red Robin and SBoy Prime are the two that I want, but if I don't find them at retail I can very easily sit back and wait for a good ebay deal to acquire those.

If it happens, it happens. If not, oh well. Ya know?

Pssst.

Amazon is your friend.

RR will cost you more, but the rest are reasonably priced. And if you get two, shipping is free.

I thought the Batman and Superman that are coming out later with those other sets were repaints, not the same as these figs?

Those are the only 2 I want, I like the new 52 looks, so this case will work out well for us, you get half, I get the other half. :)

I haven't checked out the aisles in quite a while, but I got Batman and Red Robin from BBTS about two weeks ago. They are great figures if you can get over the fact that BM is extremely short, and RR is pretty tall. The scale is all over the place. Other than that, they are fantastic. Batman's cape is perfect. I really hope that Mattel can finally nail down Superman's cape like this. I really don't like the way it has been raised off of his shoulder since like wave 6 of DCUC...

My comic store had Superman from this wave, but that was it.

maybe all the new 52 figures are going to be smaller since they are younger? gotta figure bruce wayne in his early 20's might be smaller than bruce wayne in his late 30's/early 40's.

hopefully there is some kind of reverse flashpoint soon that will set the dc universe back to normal and superman will start wearing underwear again.

Reverse Flashpoint! That would be a great title. I am patiently awaiting the day...

It would fix everything but would have to start soon to keep with the 52 theme thingy dc has. maybe it will just instantly happen and all the issues will be printed so that you have to hold them to a mirror to read them for a year.

Saw Superman at an action figure specialty shop (Toy Anxiety) this weekend. Other than that, nothing.

But Superboy and Batman showed up on Friday from Amazon.

RR is the only one I'll probably try to track down at retail.

These are pretty bad kitbashed figures. They don't look anything like the new 52 characters (too much to explain so using a broad generic statement so lets leave it at that). Sticking with DC collectibles on these. If i see them in store i'll consider it but for now i pass and dumped my bbts order a few weeks back.

Saw a bunch of these at the Mall Of America toy store today. That store has some kind of arrangement where they get every newest wave DCUC immediately without any slow trickle or screwing around that you get with the Big Box stores. (but, sadly, not the same situation with DKR Movie Masters. They have the same Banes and Batmans like everywhere else). The $21.99 price tag scared me off for the time being but I might go back If the mood strikes me.

It's a nice thought, but highly unlikely. Sales went up, so there would be no reason to change tactics. Hal Jordan becoming a mass murderer was very poorly received in the fan community, but sales were there for Kyle for a long time so they didn't bother to reverse it ... until, years later, sales had once again dropped.
