I went the same route, because today, while looking at newly listed GL items, I found THIS AUCTION... $20 Buy It Now W/ FREE SHIPPING or Best Offer! I talked him down to $17!

With what shipping costs these days, I knew I wouldn't be able to do much better than that. But I'm still going to keep my eyes open, because I want to have a second one, so I'll have one to open and one to keep MOC, and I also want to help others find them.

I now have DCUC - The Demon and Orion - I will pu Red Tornado for sure (Yeah I know there not GL related - but wave 3 has Hal and Sinestro so if they are hitting now with Wave 1 that means the sooner to wave 3 )

Wave 1 is hitting Targets in Ohio

Well I only wanted Reddy and Orion - (connections to GL you see - Kyle and Raker for Orion - and John was in the Reddy mini also Reddy is in JLA with Hal and John now) then I saw the demon and he just kicked all kinds of ass so I grabbed him - then I'm looking at C&C Rex - and hell a Bats and The Penguin and I can have Rex - OK I'll do it otherwise I would have 2 legs and an arm

problems I see with DCUC WAVE 1 -

1. I have seen 2 Red Tornado's (bootcuff version) I bought neither because the red bleed through the yellow paint around his neck

2. - Soles of the feet - they seem to want to come off like they are not really the right size to fit inside the foot -

anyway - The pics you posted look cool - but I just want the GL

I am kind of peeved, his ring is merely a dab of green paint. And it is a sloppy dab at that.

The Green from my figures mask runs down the side of his nose - I saw it before I opened it so I have been out hunting to see if I can get something better and then trade this one away obviously I will let whoever is intrested know there is a paint flaw issue

anyway I grabbed Red Tornado - serious paint flaws but I passed on him twice already then I hit a ton of Targets and this is the first one I saw so I don't know if I am going to open him yet any way whats going on with the Mall of Oa and whats up with that coupon bro?

When it's a Green Lantern 3-pack, all you're missing is the Power Batteries. That's not so bad. But when it's someone like Green Arrow, it's unacceptable! HOW CAN GREEN ARROW FIGHT CRIME WITHOUT HIS BOW, fer cryin' out loud?!?

And even when I hit the Target right after the reset, they still didn't have the single-packed figures, which I can NEVER find! I have NEVER seen a Kyle "Raynor" or Sinestro at retail! I'm going to have to buy them on eBay!

The only exception to this is Elongated Man. I DID see that single-carded figure at a Target. But what's up with that funky claw thing he's carrying?

He's ELONGATED MAN, not Clamp Champ!!!

I finally saw that shirt last night while making another futile trip to various Wal*Marts trying to find the GL figure. They keep getting them in on the days I DON'T check, so by the time I get there, they're gone!

But, of course, the only one I can AFFORD to check every day is the one in my home town, and so far, they've only gotten one shipment, of one case, which they got in a week or more ago. And of course, GL was long gone by the time I got there.

Anyway, back to the T-shirt... I found it at the one in Glen Burnie, MD, on Ordinance Rd (just off of Route 2, near the MVA). I found it while trying, in vain, to find the Mountain Dew shirt they're carrying in my size (BTW, if anyone sees the Mountain Dew logo T-shirt at their Wal*Mart in a L or XL, let me know.)

The GL shirt is THIS ONE. It's got that distressed/old look, with a flocked ("felt") GL symbol. It's not bad, but I have enough shirts with the GL symbol, so I'm good. But if anyone wants one, let me know your size and I'll see if I can find it. But check your local Wal*Marts FIRST, BEFORE you PM me. They don't seem to have it at every store, and it's not on their website, so you may have to check a few locations to find one that has it.

I got the Shadow Tek GL. It was at Toys R Us. Last one/Only one there. They also had Hawkman but I said screw it.

As for the DCSH, all Toys R Us has is the old ass Bizarro and Superman w/reb&black symbol...pretty damn lame.


If I ever see Reddy, he is mine for sure. And why the hell did they have to make Metamorpho a Build A Fig? I have the DCU version, but it's stupid because of lack of joints.
