Yeah I have a feeling this one is going to sit for awhile on Mattycollector. Unless you are a huge Guy G. fan, not much to look forward to. I suspect the Blue Beetle / translucent Fire pack will do slightly better, and the last Firefly / Dr. Destiny / Toyman pack will sell out in a day or two.

Mattel really doubled down on the GL stuff there for awhile in all of their DC lines. I guess it was all the hype from the movie. No disrespect to the GL fans but I don't think the fanbase is as large as Mattel anticipated it to be.

It might be if they could make a decent movie that didn't involve Batman.

My thoughts exactly. The movie just wasn't good. It's interesting to see the correlation between box office and toy sales. I wouldn't have thought that the link was so strong, but it apparently is.

Can't justify the 40 dollar price tag just for Guy Gardner.

I'll be getting it. We're almost done, I have no intention of quitting now. :(

Same here... I love Bruce Timm Style and will take any figure I can can get. It sucks to have to pay so much, but this is one of the only lines I collect. I do feel bad for other collectors, I'm sure will see in the near future Volcana only going for $20 once this line dies.

Ditto. I have two fodder figures coming from eBay and I'll be getting two MOC ones from MattyCollector.

Thanks Julius! Really glad to get an extra of that Batman. The one I had the yellow symbol rubbed off. So I can use my current one for fodder and put the new one in the collection.

I'm still replacing Guy's head with bottleimp's cast lol...

I think that might be the best Batman they released. It's real close between that one and the gray ghost Batman.

Funny I don't have that Batman so I guess I get 2 new figures with this pack!
