Does forum policy prohibit the disclosure of which retail chain figures are found at :?:

No. Some people just forget to mention it while others do. You can pretty much guarantee it's one of the big three (WM, Target, TRU).

I've had most of my BMU luck at Targets, but I've seen them at all three stores eventually.

I keep finding them at Target. All of the Wal-Marts here seem to have stopped carrying them.

Finally got a notice from BBTS that my pre-order of wave 2 of Batman Unlimited is in-stock.

I found 2 Injustice Batmen at Target today. I bought one - I like these figures and am looking forward to the game very much (downloading the demo tonight). The Joker is pretty ugly but I will probably get it anyway.

Didn't see Wonder Woman - don't really care because I already have the DC Collectibles figure. But I wonder who I will actually see in stores first - Wonder Woman or Batgirl? Or will I never see either?

:(

I haven't seen any BATMAN UNLIMITED or DC UNLIMITED at my local big 3. Gonna have to hit ebay or the comic shops to get them. They usually double the price by then...

Am I just missing out or are they not in full scale release yet? Only west coast for now deal?

Target is gearing up for the next aisle resets that should coincide with the street date release of upcoming Man of Steel product May 1.

I wouldn't expect to see much new put out until then. Target is just that lazy it seems.

Apparently I found a fresh case of Batman put out at a L-ville area Walmart on Friday. 2 each of Earth X and Dark Knight and 1 each of the n52 Batman and Batgirl.

Saw Fugly Batman at Walmart yesterday.

Or, as you guys call him, Planet X. :lol:

Easiest pass of a Batman figure in my entire life!

Fugly or not, the character has a history, and we wants it!

I just picked up the Dark Knight Returns Batman at Target in Portland. Awesome figure. First Mattel figure I've bought in a long, long time.

After weeks of searching at Target and other retailers for the N52 Wonder Woman figure, I was about to give up. Every time I found one available by using the Target app, it turned out to be Superman when I showed up to get it.

Then today, my LCS called me to say the figures were in stock. Now that's customer service!

So I dashed over to pick up N52 Wonder Woman and N52 Aquaman this afternoon. Aquaman looks great, btw. He has a very stern look on his face. I had to pay $20 each for them, but after all the time wasted searching, I was happy to shell out the cash.

My LCS (Midtown Comics in Manhattan) also had Joker and Superman from the Injustice line, but I thought they looked terrible, so I passed. If you like the Arkham City figures, you might like these, too, but they were not calling to me.

I saw something strange at Walmart today and I wish I had taken a picture.

It had the packaging of Planet X batman but in the box was definitely a repainted Michael Keaton era figure, the baseball bat it was supposed to have and instead of the Batmite, something that looked like a tiny quarter machine Batman statue. I'm going to try and get back up and grab a picture of it soon. Sadly, I was in a hurry earlier. Should I buy it? I mean, do you think it would be worth it or just an odd anomaly that will make me 15 dollars poorer? I can't find anything similar online.

It's certainly one of the strangest things I've seen in a toy isle!

Someone just night it, stoke the figures, and returned it to the store with bad, cheap replacements. In my area, it's common, and known as "The take back." It's worthless, I can assure you.

Wow, I hadn't even thought of that as a possibility. Though I suppose I should have known better since the figure was a 20 year old Kenner in the box of a Mattel. I've never seen that happen before, so I guess I just jumped to "special".

Thanks for telling me! I'd have been real upset if I blew my toy budget on that!
