REALLY hoping we get some lineups for future waves at SDCC, really hoping we get the lineup of wave 12 at least.
and I hope we get an announcement regarding a certain "Last Boy on Earth". I'd love to add him to my collection!
still waiting on Fate, Gentleman Ghost, and my Parademon, should be here by Wednesday. Next Week I'll order Commander Steel and Vigilante.
We already know Power Girl, Joker and Man-Bat are in Wave 10 and The Question's in Wave 11.
There's a list floating around (I think even earlier in this thread) from the Wal-Mart computers with the supposed line-ups for 10 & 11, which make a lot of sense and since Wave 9's line-up was leaked the same way and ended up being accurate, I think it's a safe bet that we know who's in 10 & 11.
As for Wave 12, I'm really hoping the 'headliner' in the wave will be Martian Manhunter.
"That's very interesting...but silly."
I wonder when they get around to Zatanna, which version she'll be. I'm pretty sure most people consider her definitive look the magician tux with fishnets, but my first exposure to her was that George Perez designed one with the bell sleeves, that scarab thing on her head and the white cape. I'd really love to see that one included, so it fits in with the satellite era JLA characters they've already released.
J'onn's classic/modern look would make for a great (& easy) variant in a wave - new head and repaint, basically.
I'll take either version of Zatanna - but if I could only have one version, I think I'd honestly prefer the Perez one myself. (I'm all about 'Bronze Age' looks! ) But I think the two outfits are probably too distinct to allow for a variant in the wave, so we probably won't get both.
"That's very interesting...but silly."
Not only that, but no mention of Wave 8 at all on AFX, and none of Wave 6 or 7 anymore either. I hope they'll continue to offer them!
i think there holding everything till San Diego
I know people were asking about Movie Masters, so here's the scoop.
BigBadToyStore just got info from the distributor, that the Two-Face wave of Movie Masters is going Matty Exclusive.
just got my first batch of Wave 8 figures.
Dr. Fate is nice, he's not an amazing figure, average at best, but it's nice to have him.
Parademon while not meeting expectations in terms of posability certainly makes up for it in sculpt.
and Gentleman Ghost exceeds every expectation.
holy cow, what a great figure, and the figure wasn't even engineered to be Jim Craddock!, it's a Joker base!
that blows my mind. but they executed it perfectly!

This arrived today from Big Bad Toystore. Nice to have a Legion of Doom style Brainiac no pants and all, and a classic, non-mullet rocking Superman!

If only they had it Clayface vs Brainiac, I'd nab that set! Don't need another Bats or Supes.
I really wish they'd stuck with the Guardian variant, since I like the modern costume better than the plain Golden Age one. The Wildcat variant is unnecessary. They look too similar and I don't care whatsoever which one I get. And odd that Black Adam comes with that necklace. Technically, shouldn't that belong to Isis?
I'm looking forward to Green Arrow, Wildcat, and Black Canary the most.
That Guardian figure is a bit plain looking, and the sticker is a little odd, since most of the DCU are getting figures for the first time in this scale. Why is he the only one to get a sticker?
Black Adam wore the necklace in Jerry Ordway's The Power of Shazam! published 1994 - long before Isis' story in 52...

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?
Another Grocery store score! Captain Marvel and Killer Moth, only 10 bucks for the pair!

to each his own, but Isis was in one story, and dies.
still, I'd rather have characters with seventy years of established stories, than a character with---two.
Well... I mean technically, legally, this is a new character, but it's clear she's based on the 70s TV character Isis. Same powers. Her name is Andriana Tomaz versus Andrea Thomas. No she isn't as old as the Shazam characters, but she's got enough history to warrant a figure. And I'm not saying I wouldn't buy a Mary or Freddie figure. (I might draw the line at Tawky Tawny... we'll see.) But they'd be in that "Guess I gotta buy 'em to make the build-a-fig" category, whereas Isis I'd be chomping at the bit for. And right, to each their own.
