    That's weird. I already got Wave 15. How was Wave 15 released before 14? Are we, um, now supposed to now refer to 15 as 14?

    Not that it's any big surprise, but in today's issue of Toyfare, they give the results of the fan CnC poll. Nekron will be the Wave 20 CnC, who won with 34% of the vote. King Shark came in 2nd with 20%, Shaggy Man & Wildebeest were 3 & 4, (can't remember which was which) Girder came in 5th, and Blockbuster (my personal vote) came in dead last.

    For sanity's sake, DCUC15 will remain 15.

    Mattel said there were some kind of logistical problems quite a while ago, but I don't think they ever elaborated, and I haven't seen any real follow-up from them - they've been pretty silent. But it does rather throw off the sequence.

    Not surprised about Nekron winning the poll, but am surprised to see Blockbuster lose it so badly - he was my choice as well. I'm all for Bronze-Age Batvillains in the line!

    Wait, wave 15 is out? What vendors have it already? I had to preorder it just a few weeks ago!

    I'm really hit hard by wave 14. I mostly only want Tyr, and maybe Obsidian and Kamandi, but I also want the Ultrahumanite. Walmart stinks.

    Besides Terrence Stamp performance, Jim Lee's design was the only other personification of the character that I thought as a real threat to Superman, almost as a "reverse" Superman
    He'd make a great figure, but he's not my preferred Zod any more than the one in red armor was. I'd be much happier with both designs if they had different names.

    A lot of e-tailers have it already. Amazon, Big Bad Toy Store, etc... The wave has also been found at some K-Marts.

    Currently, Amazon only has OMAC, Jemm, GA Starman & Golden Pharaoh in stock.

    There was a ton at my Kmart today. At least 6 cases.

    I scored a Sinestro Batman and Martian Manhunter alien variant!
    Need stuff? I might just have it!

    My LCS just got theirs in today. I'm not sure if they still order direct from Mattel, or if they go through Previews.

    Either way, I'll get them next Tuesday!

    yeah that boxset is sort of a slap in the face to people that still need the Giganta parts from gentlemen ghost.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I thought Mattel was working on a way to rerelease Gentleman Ghost WITH the Giganta parts. Is it confirmed that they aren't included?

    I don't think any 2 pack has ever included a BAF part. Heck, they don't even always come with all of their original accessories let alone BAF parts.

    I got into DCUC way late in the game and I really want Hawk Girl but I have no desire to own the Gentleman Ghost so I will probably pass on this set.

    I think I'm going to hold out hope for a rerelease of Gentleman Ghost with the Giganta parts... that was the wave that made me stop collecting the line so avidly; it seemingly never hit here, and the only one I've been able to find since has been Vigilante, who I found out later, was part of a refresh case. I still need both figures in that two pack, but I won't rebuy GG just for Giganta's pieces.

    Yeah, It was confirmed on the Matty site under the news release announcing this set. (Along with the Parasite/Supes set) Figures and their accessories only - NO BAF PARTS.

    Well that sucks. I recall ToyGuru saying that they were gonna work on getting Gentleman Ghost rereleased with mini Atom and Giganta parts. I guess not. Makes me continue to wonder if the Matty Wave 5 sets were just leftover stock from Walmart.

    Just read on Matty that Wave 15 is supposed to hit K-Marts this Sunday. (If yours hasn't already put them out) They'll be on sale for $7.75 each next week, from their already cheapest retail price of $12.99!

    Aha! Here is that image I was refering to, the tray liner of the DC75 CD. Thanks to the Aquaman Shrine:

    MOST of these characters have been part of DCUC and a lot of them are really ONLY notable nowadays because of that, like Imperiex or Jack Knight or Jemm! Dawn Granger is the current active Dove, but I believe Don Hall will be the one that gets made into a toy. And Steppenwolf ONLY looks like that in the toy line. In the comics, they still draw him the way Kirby originally designed him. So, does this mean the rest are on their way? Here's hoping!

    As much as I want to support the Retro Action line, this wave does nothing for me. I don't care for either J'Onn or Captain Marvel and would have liked to have seen Hawkman and Hawkgirl in their place. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Black Canary, but this series seems to be bombing with fans. Modern fans are put off by the Mego goofiness and Mego fans are just put off. Sigh!

    If you print out a coupon for each figure, you can get them for under $3 each!

    I've got the whole wave, but my stupid Kmart only gets the box with the alien Martian Manhunter and the red Starman. So far this is the third one!

    2x Martian Manhunter
    1x Sinestro Batman
    1x Star Man (Ted Knight)
    1x Jemm
    1x Raven
    1x Omac
    1x Golden Pharoah

    I hope I won't have to wait for Wal-Mart or Target to get these figures in.

    Could you point me in the direction of this coupon? $3 per figure is too good to pass up!

    I must say I'm envious you at least got a box in. Both of the KMarts in my area only restocked with boxes completely filled with Superman. I only found 1 Jemm last Sunday, with the Man of Steel clogging the rest of the space.

    GO FORWARD. Please support the Christopher Reeve Foundation by purchasing a set of Superman tags at www.ChristopherReeve.org

    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?
