Yep they are showing up on ebay of course. Not sure I want to try my hand at the "hunt" or give in and just buy one off ebay and be done with it.

hmm I checked my local Walmart tonight on my way home and they had none on the shelves and none on the stock pallets they had sitting out? Anyone seen any of DCUC yet?

Yeah I got Guy yesterday but they were out of Black Hands. I will try the other Target near me today. Still not super crazy about them. My son looked at the Guy fig I bought and said, "What is that? A Happy Meal toy?" LOL

And I REALLY broke down and bought a Hal and Sin off ebay for $40.... shhhh don't tell anyone.....

Well I have been lucky enough to find all of the DCIH line (to date) and just finished off Series 3 of DCUC. I found Hal, Deathstroke and Nightwing on Wednesday and just picked up Robin and Sinestro (non variant) at lunch. So I think I am good on figures for a while.

Cool review of DCUC Wave 3, for those interested. Enjoy, my American friends. Here in the UK, we're still waiting for Wave 2.

So I ended up picking up Guy the other day and gave him my New Frontier DVD mini-Hal Jordan figure's lantern it fits in pretty well with the Infinite Heroes scale.

Damn the paint jobs on those figures really suck huh?

See, this is why I prefer DCD over these anyday. You just can't compare the quality. I don't care how much they are articulated for DCUC, which takes away from the look of the figure anyhow. I will still buy Hal, Sinestro, and Sinestro Corps Sinestro. But only if I find them. I won't go crazy hunting them down, or pay ridiculous amounts on ebay plus cost of shipping. they just aren't worth it.

I really wanted this wave too. Deathstroke, Nightwing, an Robin all kick ass. As well as the Grundy.

it seems the bad paint is due to the first factory that they switched from. it looks like this is starting to clear up... check the sightings thread and you'll see my pics of my Hal I picked up

Yeah it is sporadic. I found two Hals on the shelf the other day. One was perfect and one was bad. You just have to look before you buy. These are actualy superior to DCD I think.

looks like there is only a midget version.... so far only one pic of a tall sinestro has been seen and it could be a photoshop.

I was lucky enought to get a Hal Jordan DCUC figure the other day for my birthday, it's really a great figure and after posing it I ended deciding to get the entire set it's that cool.

That is really very cool packaging on the GL pack, the other I already have both figures from the DCSH line, I think they should do Sin Corps versions of both then I'll buy it



Thanks for the Tip SL

The New Gods pack is up also, I dont need it but damn does it look cool

check this out IT IS A PHOTOSHOPPED PIC but cool none the less and Scott from mattel has expressed interest in the Sinestro corps story line and might go with this option later down the line.

according to the latest Toy Fare the Sinestro's in Wave 3 where in fact corrected at some point, meaning I still have to find two Corrected Sinestros as both my classic and Sin Corps are of the shrunken head version

As of today neither of the 2 walmarts in my area have any of the DCUC wave 3 figures. Is this my curse or are other Walmarts also as baren?
