You mean... THIS ONE? Or do you mean the Fossil "Big Tic" version?

Either way, you JUST missed 'em, 'cause those auctions only ended within the last few days. If I'd know you were looking for it, I would've let you know about the auctions.

And yes, I DO have a 12" TRU exclusive Cyborg Superman available! Thanks for NOT taking it off my hands, Greenlant78!

But Maverick_GL, it's yours if you want it. PM me if you're interested.

Reports are starting to come in on the Shadowtek Green Lantern (and Hawkman) showing up at Walmarts. I don't know about yours, but my local Wal-marts look like they were hit by tornados! Nothing left! I think Target may be a better place to find them once the holiday is over, give it a few days. I will alert anyone when I see them here in Atlanta. I can't wait to get him!

Whoo Hoo! Score! I found Hal (and Hawkman) at Wal-mart today!!! It was in the Star Wars section. A lone peg of ShadowTek Batman figs, and Hal was on the front! I couldn't believe it! Especially since I had very low expectations as my Wal-Mart looks like a twister went thru it. I must check the other Targets and Wal-marts now....

Go out and start looking guys, they are here!

Just got back from a trip to Wal*Mart. Found one Shadowtek GL. If Northampton MA has em, the other Wal Marts around here should. If I see anymore I'll pick em up for board members.

Damn, I went to two Walmarts and a Target and have nothing to show for it - My Walmart was completely empty in the Action Figure aisle except for Power Rangers.

My wife went hunting with me today - boy was she sorry

anyway

Walmart - they had the correct wave but no GL and No Hawkman
Drugmart - nothing
Kmart - they still have yellow carded JLU stuff for godsake - nothing
Drive to the next town -
Target - They have the DCU Wave 1 out - had all the figures and the Variant Red Tornado ! - but we have a typical Mattel issue - paint job was fucked up on Reddy and on Orion - I picked up the Demon
TRU - nothing at all

Walmart - I see the Old shadow tek stuff in the bigger packaging none of the correct wave - then I remember Lord Mal said they where in the Star Wars toys by him - went down to the Star Wars toys - there they are the correct Wave - 3 pegs - pulled the first Batman off and

WAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GREEN LANTERN MOTHER F-ER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I got my GL I'm still on the hunt for you guys though Good Hunt today

Hmm. If they are showing up in MA, maybe they're in NH as well. I'll have to run up to the 24 hr Walmart in Salem this weekend. Possibly Saturday night at midnight. Best time to shop, no ones there.

Cool No luck in MD... yet.

Well guys, last night involved a lot of fruitless searching. Yesterday, I hit 1 Toys "Я" Us, 2 different Target stores and 5 different Wal*Mart locations in my area. And while I found evidence that the wave has hit retail in my area (a few of the Wal*Mart locations had the Batman and/or the Joker from this wave, and one even had that godawful reissued Mr. Freeze from the show,) there were NO Hal Jordans or Hawkmen to be had. This was the absolute WORST possible week for Mattel and Wal*Mart to release these figures at retail!

Between the hordes of last-minute Christmas shoppers Christmas Eve, the deal-seekers on the 26th for the After Christmas Sale, people looking to use Wal*Mart Gift Cards they'd received for the holidays, all the other collectors in the area, AND the scalpers, I didn't stand a snowball's chance in Tahiti of finding the figure at retail yesterday!

But that's okay. I've just received a hot tip on where to check, and it's a chain I was going to check anyway, because they sometimes carry the good action figures, and not a lot of people know to check there: The Walgreens drug store chain.

Sadly, I didn't know last night that they'd already started receiving these figures. I drove right by 2 Walgreens last night, and I would've stopped in if I'd known they were already receiving these figures.

But that's okay, I'll swing by one or even both this afternoon after I get off of work.

I'm also going to check a particular "ghetto" Toys "Я" Us store that collectors in the area usually ignore. This summer, when the Transformers movie was selling tons of toys, and store pegs were BARE where the movie 'formers were supposed to be, this particular TRU had dozens of pegs FULL of figures, because people must've forgotten it's there. So if I'm very, very lucky, maybe I'll find Hal there. *crosses fingers*

--Dan (Who can't STAND what the producers of The Batman did to Mr. Freeze! He doesn't even have a MOUTH, fer cryin' out loud!)
