- Gentleman

DCUC have always had better articulation and look to their figures, with this Wave they have certified their stance as being officially better than Marvel Legends. At this time its like comparing Super Powers figures to Secret War figures, we know who the clear winner is. The only thing DCUC needs to do is some mega BAF's. I am sorry but at this time with the Sentinels and Galactus, even Apoc(however its spelled) ML still have the advantage. I want to see some major league BAF's in the DC universe.

This wave is awesome

Better Articulation? Nope! Better character selection yes! But how can they even compare when so many figure reuse the same three bucks? (Bucks=bodies used in the casting/molding process)

Super Powers vs. Secret Wars? Marvel legends is more like Super Powers with it's dept and scope...

BAF vs. Collect and Connect; Just like in the Comics... The crib ideas from Marvel!

Needless to say, I really ant that Mr. Terrific!!!

you know what, this wave restores a nice balance of good guys versus bad guys, wave seven only has one, count it one bad dude, that is a little nutty. I want 5 of each Parademons for an army builders. I hope loose versions will be cheap on Ebay, sort of like Penguin or RT

The best option to get these figures is to order them online via someplace like Corner Store Comics or the like. I'm lucky to have a few places that regularly stock DC Universe figs, but given the hassle of getting them (often in the dead of night after some partying and drinking) is a bit too much. Granted, that's a good way to get variants, but the best bet is to order online. That's my motto. I've already pre-ordered Series 6-8 thanks to the hassle it's going to take to get Series 5.

logic! CSC has them for damned near retail. ive been having pretty good luck so far, but if i had to do the "online" thing, thats where i'd start!

You think you've got it bad. Try Mattel's distrib outside the USA: VIRTUALLY NONEXISTENT. eBay therefore is the "best" option, which means currently paying about 4 times US face value, thanks to shipping and the mighty Aussie dollar. Worse, Mattel taunts us by putting a local distrib address on the packaging. Nice if it actually worked.

I can live without most of these. Fergeddaboudit. Pfah!!

Another ball park hit, this wave is fantastic and a credit to the best comic book company ever..DC COMICS!!! However distribution is getting worse, I ordered 2 sets of Wave 4 and have yet to receive my second batch so my Despero since Sept has had only 1 arm. No word on any of the 2-packs or the Kay Bee exclusives, this is a horrible thing.

3 special requests --

1. Fix your retail issue for goodness sakes

2. no more chase or variants, I am a completist and would prefer them down the line

3. include a "growing" character in the wave in regular scale, that would rock!!
