man-bat why don't you PM me what you don't have and I'll see what I can find around me. Would this help you calm down a bit?

Thanks.

Any west coast sightings? Preferably Oregon?


Never mind. My Big Lots had two cases of DCSH and JLU. Got both Cyborgs; one for me and one for a friend (if he wants it; if not, I'll offer it here).

The Hawkman and Canaries were the first versions.

I checked two Big Lots in the Mesa Arizona area and saw nothing but Mission vision stuff. I'll check again next week.

Checked the Big Lots in Fairfield, CA.

They had an aisle full of those older deluxe Mattel Batman Figures as well as the two pack with Batman and Joker.

They had some JLU packs. 1-Trinity pack, 1-Hawkman 3-pack, 1-Joker 3-pack and 1-Super Family 3-pack.

They had some DCSH figures. 1-Parasite, 2-Steel, 1-Black Suit Superman, 2-Monguls. BUT NO CYBORG Supes..but i have faith that they had it..

Cherry picked. Finding new stuff in CA is almost impossible.

I walked into a BL here in the OC, looking for the holy figs, went to toys, and saw nothing. Then, I noticed they had a pallet setting by the back wall doors; ready to be stocked I assumed? There were Mattel cases setting upon it, and many of them said "DC..." this or that. I quickly scanned the boxes and saw disignations Super Friends, JLU, Batman and Super Heroes adorned the areas just after the precious letters "DC". Another quick scan about the area revealed no BL personal about to help (or distract) in getting the figures I wished to purchase.

So, being the helpful, and practical, individual that I am, I decided to assist the store's stocking team in opening the cases. And wishing to further help the BL chain in making sales for the day, I went ahead and purchased a few of the items from some of opened cases that lay before me.

I only bought the Cyborg Superman, Black Superman and Hawkman 3 pack, however I took notes from what was in each case, and the amount of case packs on the pallet.

This BL had:
- 3 cases of DC Comic style Batman Figures
- 3 cases of JLU 3 packs
- 2 cases of DC Super Friends
- 1 case of JLU motorcycles
- 1 case of DC Super Heroes
- And probably a few more here and there like the DC Comic 2-packs

Here's what's in the cases I opened:
-DC Comic Batman figs:
Old various paint scheme batmans (yellow, green, etc. not too exciting)

-JLU 3 packs (same for all cases):
1 hawkman 3 pack
2 joker/canary 3 packs
3 trinity 3 packs

-DC Super Heroes:
1 Cyborg fig
1 Black Superman fig
1 Mongul
1 Steel
1 Superman
1 Parasite

-DC Super Friends
Blue/Grey Batman
Superman
FLASH

The other cases I didn't bother to open, as they didn't interest me, and I wasn't getting paid for my assistance, so I ponied up my $30, and bid BL a fond adios.

Of course, your milage may vary.

I was at a BL yesterday and zilch so today I stopped by another...

They had just unpacked ALL the cases, there were Superfriends, JLU, DCSH, Batman (Old line) and everything! :shock:

A gazillion of those Joker 2-packs (The 6" inch ones) but I didn't see the Nightwing set.

I picked up Steel and Cyborg Superman, but no blue Supergirl... they had Joker and Hawkman but I passed.

Is Boy Wonder/Mattel responsible for this? :?: :P We've been saying how hard it is to get these, and suddenly they show up at Big Lots of all places and they ALWAYS get more than enough. Like the Mission Vision Darkseid's... :wink:

Btw, if anyone wants these I'm lookin' to trade for ML. Just shoot me a PM. :)

There are 2 Big Lots in my area, so I stopped by both of them this afternoon and didn't see any new JLU or DCSH. Oddly, the second one I went to had 3 pegs of "Mission Vision" Justice League figures -- lots and lots of Darkseids. I remember back when this wave was out and I had a fair amount of trouble laying my hands on a Darkseid. Strange to see so many.

I still haven't given up hope for my JLU collection. I still need:

Huntress (the single-pack version)
Vigilante (any version!)
Stargirl/Aquaman/Parasite 3-pack
Nemesis/Lightray/Amazo 3-pack
Volcana/Green Arrow/Hawk 3-pack
Joker/Black Canary/Batman 3-pack
Plus everything from Blue Devil forward.

I'm still thinking of giving up collecting this line, just because figures seem to be so hard to come by in my area (Pennsylvania). It's hard to let go, though, because I love it so much.

I also hit a Big Lots in Kennet Square and found many Mission Masters Supes and Darkseid...

As a Pennsylvania resident also, I feel your pain. I get most of my JLU collection from a friend who has more luck finding them than I do. Even my wife finds more of the 3 packs than I have... I'm currently waiting on a pre-order from BBTS

Good luck hunting,

Damn, I can't find anything. My Big Lots is still stuck on carrying bootleg toys. They don't even know what Mattel is, let along a Cyborg Superman.

I hate you all.
