I would have done it but I know the game will be discounted soon enough so I will just wait till then
I agree with Mark, you just must have a cruddy TRU if they aren't selling through them. My store ran out of all their free Injustice figures after one day. It was a pretty great sale, because not only did you get a free figure but you also got the player's guide for free. $40 worth of freebies. :hmgrin:
Man, I really want that new Wonder Woman. She looks fantastic!!! I hope I can find her and the "Masters" Batman in stores.
Another one bites the dust...
Wow that's terrible I keep seeing this stuff about DC collectables stuff what a shame.
My number one want from the DC line, ether Mattel or DC Collectibles, is Morgan Le Fay.
I've wanted her for years, and was hoping we'd get her in the JLU line, but there is still hope for the 6" line.
Anyone else want Morgan?

My Larfleeze was in the box backwards. Weird. I wonder why?
SDCC Exclusive revealed, and it's.....
It's DCnU Shazam (Captain Marvel.) Pics over on Mattycollector.
I have to say, this is something of a let down. I don't know if this is the only DCUC/DCIE exclusive, but if it is, that's pretty underwhelming, for a figure that could very easily just be in the retail line. :sksad:
This was the perfect chance to give us an oversized Doomsday and they waste it on...
they could have given us a Ras/Talia two pack...
they could have given us some more Legionaires...
instead, they give us a figure they could have just as easily given us in regular stores if they weren't so busy clogging up shelves with Injustice figures nobody wants.
So he is going to come with something special, right?
The hood on him looks goofy. Looks like the body could be used for Amazo (I don't remember them doing him yet).
Huge let down, nothing special about him at all. He could have easily been a retail figure. Exclusives should be characters who are less likely to sell at retail to the general public. Morgan Le Fey would have been a perfect example. DC is pushing the New 52 so hard that I'm sure it was them that forced Mattel's hand.
Nevertheless, this is going to be the most disappointing SDCC in years. I mean, we had great figures like Plastic Man and Swamp Thing, and even though I'll never get them due to price, Lobo was pretty awesome and the Wonder Twins were not bad. This, however, is just lackluster because there is nothing special about this guy. Does he at least come with Billy?
Other than how the hood looks (I hope they fix it) I think Shazam looks pretty awesome. While he does come across as somewhat disappointing as a SDCC exclusive, I really love his New 52 design and I'll be picking up this figure for sure.
SDCC exclusives typically are low tooled items for characters that wouldn't sell well or sparkly variants. I am sure DC had their hand in the decision, the horsemen tend to do better with these figures and the design on this one just doesn't look that great (as a figure).
This wouldn't pass as a Ross exclusive.
Since DCUC fans don't have the numbers to reach 100% tooling, the line has been meandering, doing what it can with mostly reused parts.
But why Shazam? He's known at retail.
There should have been a Billy pack in or something. It's the most bare bones exclusive ever. At least it's not an out of scale statue like last year.
There's still 5 Shazam vs. Black Adam 2 packs at my local TRU. What a terrible choice but Matty may not have had a say in this. I wish DC would Flashpoint the Nu52.
