For BoyWonder to say the conservative approach didn't work is the understatement of the year. In January my local Walmart got in 21 Supermen; only 9 of those sold, and the remaining 12 are on clearance at $5 each. Once again, Mattel management screws everything up with crazy case ratios.
Meanwhile, I was at Wizard World Philadelphia for the entire three days last weekend, and the availability of DCH is equally incredible. Of all the vendors, no one had Kara Zor-El for sale, no one had Mr. Freeze, no one had Azrael, there was only 1 wave three Batman for sale, only 1 wave four Darkseid (blue version) for sale, only 1 black and silver Superman for sale, only 1 Mongul for sale, only 1 Kal-El for sale, and only 3 chrome variant Steels for sale. In other words, not even scalpers can find this line. I still say it's a miracle I found Kara and Azrael at retail, both being left on shelves without any sign of the rest of their cases.
So says the Sword.
