Yes, but according to Q&A sessions with the Mattel employee known on various messageboards and toy news sites as "ToyGuru", the smallness was due to a problem with the molds and NONE were corrected. So I don't know who to believe.

I have Sinestro in both uniforms for my own collection, but I'm STILL unable to find him at retail so that I can help others find him. This past week, a brand new Target opened in Annapolis, MD. I went there with 2 missions:
  1. Find the Savage She-Hulk figure from the Marvel Legends Hulk wave.
  2. Find Sinestros for my fellow collectors here on this forum.
I'm sad to report that only the first mission was successful. When I got there, their pegs were full of Hulk wave Marvel Legends figures, and there was the She-Hulk figure! YES!!! I FINALLY scored her for only RETAIL price! I'm glad I resisted the temptation to buy her at the Baltimore Comic Con, because I would have paid $40 for her there!

But... not only were there no Sinestro figures to be had, there were no DCUC figures from Wave 3, period! Oh, their pegs were full of DCUC product, alright... FROM FRAKKIN' WAVE 1!!!!

Brand new store, just opened, should only have BRAND NEW product, and they're stocked up the wazoo on Wave 1 from LAST FRAKKIN' YEAR!!! If I see one more Wave 1 Batman, or Demon, or Red Tornado, I swear to dog, I will TRASH the mother frakkin' toy aisle and DEMAND satisfaction!!!

Walmarts in my area are for sh!t. They feel like kmart - scummy. I hit Target and have tons of luck. GLJIMT - try Target at Strongsville or Parmatown.

Well I told the manager at the walmart I go to the most that I was severely disappointed they didn't have the line when the company was carrying them. He said he would see what he could do about that
