    I just clicked the link, and ETC has no wave 8 or 9. His preorders for waves 11 and 12 are very fairly priced, though.

    If nine hundred He-Man.Org members get eaten by Thundercats fans, but neither of them has a toyline, does it still count as a fan movement?

    ETC's said in a thread over on Fwoosh that he's not going to be getting any more Wave 8 in - as for Wave 9, it looks like he's barely going to be able to fill his preorders, since Mattel under-produced the waves.

    I'm kind of at a loss as to how they "underproduced" the wave. I mean... why can't they just make more? It's not like they destroyed the molds and burned down the factories. That just seems odd to me.

    yup. this is pretty much the case.

    however, you'd think with all the press of them becoming scarce it would drive up enough demand to rerelease the figs.

    hopefully they can be released in other ways

    It seems quite a few Target and TRU stores are getting wave 9, so if you still need them you may want to check there.

    I am so glad I started preordering sets online back with wave 3. With the spotty distribution of Wave 2, I saw the writing on the wall even then. If I had relied on retail, wave 4 is the last complete set I would have. Waves 5, 6, 8, and 9 never showed up at any store in this city, and we only got one case assortment of Wave 7. Thank Grodd I was one of the lucky few who actually received their wave 9 preorder. Just need to snag a comic Mantis (my preferred version) and I'm set.

    Well I lucked out this weekend. I decided to head way south of where I live and I struck gold. One TRU had 2 Canarys and a robot Mantis, another TRU had Human Mantis and both wild Cats. Now I only need Green Arrow from wave 9. I still need a few from wave 8 as well. I think from now on I'm going to stop at one of those TRUs on a weekly basis.

    So it looks like Wave 10 is hitting the stores. I'm seeing the Joker on ebay going for upwards of $60 right now. The cheapest I see him on there for is $32.

    I'd give it some time yet - they've only been out for about a week, so far. I'm sure this wave is going to be a pain in the neck, but probably not a $30+ per figure pain.

    Assuming that it has the same level of distribution as Wave 5, I'm not too panicked yet - I was able to get all 5 figures in Wave 5 shipped for about $80, total. I guess that worked out to about $15 per figure, figuring on $10 for shipping?

    I think worse-case we'll be looking at $20 per figure ebay prices eventually - possibly better than that.

    (All this is said in the tone of purest optimism.)

    According to other forums I browse, Wave 10 is starting to hit a lot more areas yesterday & today alone! Guess those rumors about them showing up "in force" the week of 10/1 was right on.....

    Still bet I won't find them though......

    I'm with you Skullface. I'm seeing places like PA, MS, TX, reporting in saying they are seeing the figures. Yet, I live in MD and I just have a gut feeling we will not see this wave. I have been on the watch pretty diligently at 3 Walmarts local to me, while I have another buddy checking a few others around him. Seriously, these figures should not be this much work

    I'm not a fan of the Public enemy figures, particuarly Silver Banshee. I'm hoping that's not the only chance we will get to see her made, because I'm really disappointed her her head sculpt. She was a figure I was looking forward to seeing in the Classics style.

    I'm worried about that too. I think this ugly figure will probably push back a proper DCUC Silver Banshee by at least a year. I hope that's all.

    I'm planning to get the Public Enemies figures because I actually want about half of them, and I want Brimstone enough to pick up the others. Planning to do some mods to Batman to make him "definitive," or as close to that as I can get right now. MAjor Force looks fine as is. Icicle will be getting some mods to that head, so he looks less like a friggin' bird. I didn't like the headsculpt on Banshee at first, but it's grown on me. Her face looks like a shaman's mask or something; I like it now, even though it's not really how she's supposed to look. Superman and Black Lightning will likely end up as fodder.

    I finally found the rest of Wave 9 today with the exception of the purple Wildcat. I still haven't seen any more Wave 8. Now I have to start looking for Wave 10.

    Hell, yes! I'm not getting them because of that. Poor Silver Banshee...

    In my mind, this is what Silver Banshee should resemble...

    after a long drought I have been able to pick up a Wonder Woman, Black Adam, and Blue Beetle.
    My walmart has most of the figures from those waves. I haven't seen Black Canary. My current plans are to just pick up certain sets of figures, Green Lantern, Marvel Family, and what I can of the Batman Family. Green Arrow and Black Canary are maybes.
