Got the GL 2pk at Toys R Us, and a couple of KB's by me had a bunch of waves 3 and 4 and my LCS got wave 4. There were no Batman Beyond variants but they had Captain Atom variants at all of them. Still need a Corps Sinestro.

I've been trying to track down that Batman Beyond variant, too. I've been scouring the couple of KBs in my area with no luck. I've run across tons of regular BB figures, but not that variant. It's still beyond me why Mattel made that and Sonic Arm Cyborg exclusive to KB.

I'm jealous of everyone finding the TRU exclusive two pack. I plan on hitting two different TRUs tomorrow (may have to go for all three in the city at this rate) in the hopes of finally finding one.

Is there mob TRU'ers where you guys are at too? I'm not talking parents waiting for the store to open for Christmas gifts, I have a client by one of their stores one Wednesday about a month ago and there was a group of guys waiting for it to open so I thought I would see what it was all about. Doors open and they went ape shit for the Hotwheels.

There's a LCS owner that gives a finders fee to the hot figs and turns and sells them for 25 to 40 bucks. Pissed me off and I found a new shop. Makes it impossible to find anything here.

Actual I got to Toys R Us in the middle of the day when I got the GL 2pk, I found one of the other 2pks and ask the guy in the action figure area if they had more. He without even checking said no (he didn't seem like he wanted to be there ), so I went to the service desk and the woman there checked and had someone pull a case from the back.

Didn't see it mentioned in the thread any where, but four new two packs were announced late last week: Batman/Clayface, Golden Age Hawkman/Golden Age Hawkgirl, Lex Luthor/Supergirl and Superman/Classic Brainiac. You can check out Batman and Clayface here.

There's also the MattyCollector.com exclusive Adam Strange/Starfire two pack.

I personally thought it looked a little more like something else...and we'll just leave it at that.

i picked up both versions of batman beyond for my brother at a kay bee toys near me in my local mall. So far thats the place that keeps restocking the figures. I had also heard that they were goin to toys r us but not sure. Its incredible they cant get them to other places and make them so hard to find.

All I've seen of wave 5 has been one lone Riddler that's been haning out at my Wal-Mart for about two weeks now. Only other DCUC figures they've got are partially opened Penguins and Red Tornadoes.

Right now, though, I'm still hunting the GL 2 pack (only ran across the Batgirl/Azrael and Orion/Lightray sets this weekend) and the Batman Beyond variant. Both my local KayBees have a ton of BB, but not that variant.

Starting with Wave 6 Mattel is also distributing through Diamond so any LCS should be able to get you the figs same as the old Legends.

Exclamation

Wave 4 hit Target stores in my area in large quantities TODAY. On Xmas Eve. I know because I checked yesterday while doing the last of my Xmas shopping and they were not there yesterday.

The stores are only open until 6 PM EST tonight, a little under another hour and a half as I write this. Artemis was well-stocked, and I even saw 1 or 2 of the gold variant Captain Atom figures, as well.

I was not about to wait in line for an hour to pick any up today, but if anyone wants an Artemis or any of the other figures, PM me IMMEDIATELY and I can TRY to grab it for you on Friday morning, but I'm making NO guarantees that they won't sell out tonight.

I've got some other DCUC, JLU and Infinite Heroes finds to report... in my next post. Stay tuned!

god damn it Jack, stop your teasing and spill it!

I found the new Flash from the Superfriends line BTW it appears the Hawkman in that line was cancelled

also I saw a Wave 2 Blue Superman at Target, perhaps this is the run with Jason Rausch Firestrom????
