Movie Masters have always been smaller compared to DC Universe figures.

Target disappointed me this morning, but someone at Wal-Mart could read a date. WM had the full gamut of Man of Steel toys out. Of course, most of them are junky items that harken back to toys of the 70s. I bought the less-than-stellar Movie Masters Supes and Zod. I assume Jor-El is not in the current case assortment. Please correct me if I am wrong.

This was at the WM on McKinney Ranch in McKinney, TX.

Actually someone must have beat you to it. He is packed only 1 per case. I was able to score all 3 last night by having someone grab a case from the back. He is going to hard to find for sure. I think Mattel may have underestimated his kid appeal. The armor makes him look cooler than Zod in that respect.

No problem! ;)

On another note, it looks like Mattel is really hoping collectors are going to double dip for Zod and Superman. Toys R Us has the Move Masters listed on the site with photos of the figures and they not only have the repacked Superman from wave 1 with the Kryptonian key but they are also repacking the black suit Zod with shackles.
Here are the links:

Zod with shackles http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=19273476
Superman with key http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=19273396

Looks like tru.com is offering $25 off $100 purchase, which means that even though the figures are outrageously priced at $20 each, if you got both zods, faora, jor-el and supes, you're gonna get $5 off each one, which means they're "only" $15 each. It might not be that much less at the register, but it'll save you a ton in gas gettin em all delivered to your house instead of having to go looking for them at regular and taxed price.

These figures reminded me that I never found Blake or Ra's from DKR, (or Gordon) and only saw Alfred twice (Catwoman I've seen a few times.) Glad I passed on that line altogether. That crap distribution makes me have very little interest in these figures. There has got to be a time when some collectors just give up and move on.

I quit buying the Cars line when Cars 2 came out because they were such a pain to find, and I am so glad I did. It was very freeing.

I hope all you guys find what you are looking for with this line!

I picked up Superman and Jor-El yesterday. The two Zods I saw didn't have great paint apps, so I'll wait on him.

Superman is a lot less five o'clock shadow-y than a lot of pics I've seen make him look.

The closest thing we have to a Movie justice League. Really cool pic :mrgreen:

My MOS figures are still on the mail :evil:

Clark: I'm here! The guys told me that you're all waiting for me. :mrgreen:

Batman: No, you're not the "new Superman" figure we're talking about. :roll:

Matty has "revealed" a Movie Masters SDCC exclusive. I say "revealed" in quotes because...well...

(from http://news.mattycollector.com/blog/2013/04/29/2013-sdcc-preview/)
Quote:
DC Man of Steel™ Movie Masters® Superman™ vs. General Zod Movie Pack

This 2-pack brings to life the super charged battle between two powerful Kryptonians, Superman™ and the General Zod, an exciting diorama set in the city of Metropolis! The package features lights that simulate Superman’s Heat Ray vision, and shows off the Kryptonian’s super strength and flying ability. The diorama is completed with sound effects to help bring the scene to life. Full image will be available on 6/17.

This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 4, 2013, to be picked up at San Diego Comic-Con (details to come). It will also be available for purchase at the show, then at MattyCollector.com on August 5, 2013.

TM & © DC Comics.

The image won't be available until almost two full weeks after the pre-order date. That sure is a snazzy looking box, though! :-)
