    so, here's hoping!
    I sure hope so. That way I can return this crappy skrull variant Harley to the store for a decent one.

    Either that or Bizzaro Harley from her insane comic book series...

    All Harleys suffer from a bad paint wash, mine is blue in the face (like she choked on a bad shellfish).

    anyway, I found Wave 2 all over the place in Pittsburgh today, tho I'm still missing Aquaman (Couldn't find a classic one), so My Grodd is missing an arm still.

    I also found Dark Knight Movie Masters, so I picked up Bats and Joker.

    and the INDIANA JONES figures (but that's a topic for another thread).

    Mattel mentioned at the NYCC panel that Harleys in later shipments will have the face wash corrected.

    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?

    good to hear, I think I'll keep the blueface one, and maybe fix it later with some drybrushing.

    tho, I have to get one for my brother, so I'll wait to see what the corrected one looks like.

    I got wave 2 last week. DCU is definetly one of the best toylines out there at the moment, wave 2 is pretty much flawless (in my eyes), all perfect paintjobs, articulation, sculpts, colours etc. My favourites are Aquaman (got the classic one), Firetstorm and Gorilla Grodd, I even like the blue superman.

    Bring on series 3!

    I'm so glad the new MOTU toyline is similar to this.

    Firestorm is superb, my only gripe is that he doesn't have the Sun on his back.

    Superman Blue is also fantastic.

    Grodd looks great (So far).

    if I can't find a classic Aquaman, I will settle for the new one, because I'm not THAT hung up on the character.

    I sort of got lucky yesterday. I found all of them except Aquaman and Firestorm, so my Grodd is missing an arm and leg. These are very nice figures but I just don't like the blue wash on Harley's face.

    I finally found most of them! I hadn't seen any of wave 2 until just the other day when I found Superman Red, Superman Blue, and Harley Quinn in, of all places, a Stop & Shop. Then I found Black Manta and Firestorm at a Toys R' Us. Still looking for Aquaman, though.

    At the NYCC panel they announced a Wal-Mart exclusive wave that will be in addition to the normal waves. The WM exclusive wave will have the Eradicator (the 2up of which looks awesome! ), the Atom (Ray Palmer version), the Riddler (uses the Two-Face mold), Black Lightning (modern version with the bald head), and Amazo (who has a Green Lantern ring on his right hand). The Collect-and-Connect figure is Metallo, which also looked fantastic.

    But the Wal-Mart wave is being called wave 5.

    it will be released at the same time as wave 6, however.

    Problem solved - just call the waves by their BAF. (Metamorpho Wave, Grodd Wave, Grundy Wave, Metallo Wave, etc....)

    I wonder how wave 5 will be distributed internationally (i.e. Canada).

    Wow, they're up to wave 6 already?? The only ones of these I've EVER seen are the Golden Age Batman/Orion/Red Tornado wave...

    There's a Harley Quinn figure? I need to find that one.

    I only know wave 2 having actually been released. What the characters etc all looked like was released nearly a year ago for wave 2 though. Subsequent waves will probably come out a bit quicker though.

    My current problem is nearest target will cost me 70 bucks in gas to get to.

    You might as well just order them then.

    Gosh, as if it didn't suck enough already that Mattel doesn't release the line in Germany and I have to order them from importers, now they're starting with Walmart waves! I've already given up hopes for Marvel Legends because of that!

    The situation in the UK isn't much better.

    Only Waves 1 and 2 are out.

    Wave 3 will be out before Fall (Hal Jordan, Robin, Nightwing, Deathstroke, and Sinestro)

    Wave 4-6 were announced/shown at NYCC, but I don't think all the figures have been announced yet (tho I could be mistaken).

    Wave 4 was completely announced, and the 6" figures were shown in the case. The Mattel reps commented that these were just about the finished products, although they might go back and make a slight change or two. The lineup:
    Batman Beyond
    Ares
    Cyborg
    Wonder Woman (variant of Ares as Wonder Woman)
    Captain Atom (variant of gold costume)
    Collect and Connect Figure: Despero (90s style with the gold bandolier and massive cannon)

    I can't say enough how great these figures looked. Batman will come with two Batarangs, and the stunning Ares comes with sword and shield.

    I got wave 1 from play.com but they aren't listing any more
    FP has wave 2 listed for end of May..

    The ones I got were imported by Gear 4 Games, so obviously Mattel UK isnt bothered about this line, which is a bit of a worry
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..

    Mattel UK ain't the brightest of divisions!
