    Found the variant Wildcat I needed to finish up the Chemo wave this morning. Now I can fully concentrate on (fruitlessly) looking for the Wal-Mart wave.

    Both my Wildcats have the "less bubbly" Chemo torso. If someone has the corrected torso with the insert and wants to swap, let me know.

    Mattel just answered this in their latest Q&A - he is 9 inches tall; about the same height as Solomon Grundy and Atom Smasher.

    But he DOES at least come with an interchangeable hand for those who don't want him displayed with the "killing glove".

    I live in So. Cal and have pretty much been checking my Local Wal-marts for the past two weeks for Wave 10. I have talked to every store and dept manager I can find and still no luck. No one knows anything! Has anyone in the So Cal area found wave 10 yet?

    Yeah it just seems like this area is a dead zone or something. I have checked 7 Wal-marts everyday for the past two weeks and nada. I even have called corporate amd have them looking into this situation. I really, really, hope they never do another Wal-mart exclusive wave AGAIN! They have no idea at all how to handle exclusives!

    My area's a bust too. I read on another forum a poster said a friend pick up some of wave 10 at a Walmart in MD, but didn't indicate where. I'm hoping I can find out what area that was. I really don't want to ebay it to get these figures.

    Is anyone who is able to attain the Walmart wave going to be in attendance at Baltimore Comic Con next weekend? If so, I was wondering if there's anyone who could pick up the wave for me and then meet up at the convention to exchange.

    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?

    Well, I went ahead and bought the Joker on eBay. I paid a little more than I wanted to, but in the end between time and gas money I'm saving, I figure I'm about breaking even at this point.

    I still don't understand the character selection for the Wal-mart wave. How could they put so many important characters in an exclusive wave that's going to be impossible to find. Joker, Power Girl, Beast Boy, Man-bat, Forager, I mean come on Mattel your killing us. This has been one of the most difficult toy lines to collect. Unless you have time to drive out to 100 different stores every day or can afford the outrageous scalper prices on e-bay you are basically screwed.

    I will never own a Gleek or the Metallo wave, I might as well add wave 10 to that list. This sucks! Sorry had to vent.

    Yeah I feel the same. I wanted to get this whole line but it is impossible for me to find in my area. I was only getting the main Batman characters and was doing pretty good for a while. I'll never see this wave at my walmart and I'm not going to buy them off ebay.

    To get Walmart to carry this line(thanks to Mattel's own usual idiocy ruining the previous DCSH line), Mattel had to give them an exclusive wave each year. Walmart places an order for the amount of cases they want, and Mattel produces them. It's up to Walmart which stores recieve them, and how many they get.

    I got screwed on Wave 5, and likely will again with this one-- and I even work at Walmart-- so I hate it as much as anybody else. It's just the way things work, though.

    You know I can totally believe that. I called Mattel the other day and they pretty much told me well it's your fault if you decide to collect the DCU. Aside from that they didn't have any information whatsoever to help me out. Well like Mattel said It's just my fault for collecting the line. Well I won't commit that mistake again, after this wave 10, I am done unless they go online.

    Well, for those in Washington/Pittsburgh area. The Walmart in Carnegie, PA has the exclusive wave with Joker, Power Girl and rest. picked up Power Girl and Joker. There was still at least 2 complete sets left on the pegs about 1 hour ago. Would have bought more if I had some more money. They look great!

    At least you guys are getting the figures at all. All I've ever found at retail here were some of Wave 8 at TRU and have yet to find any DCUC at any Wal Mart here at all.

    On the plus side though I did get the Green Arrow I got on e bay today, and I've got to say, he's pretty awesome.
