    Well, the description suggests you got just one figure, but I would otherwise have put good money on Batman and Wonder Pig. :)

    Since my nephew has recently taken an interest in these figures, I've been tracking down figures from near and far, and I must say, this line is kind of growing me, so much so that I've kept some of the duplicate figures for myself, and I'm thinking of possibly expanding my collection. There's a kind of endearing, old-fashioned quality to their simplicity, crappy molds and general lack of detail.

    Does anyone know of a site with a definitive check list for the entire line of figures? I'd like to get an idea of the scale of the project, should I decide to pursue it.

    Aw yay! People CARED :p:anime: Not enough to make guesses, though....

    Well, the description suggests you got just one figure, but I would otherwise have put good money on Batman and Wonder Pig.

    Well, I guess that technically counts, though it's really more of a non-guess LOL.

    I got..


    Wait for it...





    Wait for it...





    Still waiting for it? Well so is he. And by "it" I mean fame.


    I gotsa Green Lantern. In a new costume. Like the kid said! Okay, okay...it's Booster! And I'm really, really liking him. True, his head is too small (I'm sure Volcana looks alien by comparison, one day I hope to add her to my collection and find out for myself), but that gives him a really nice "big hero" proportion to his body. And the blue and yellow looks great! I thought it would be too dull, after the awesome gold and black original, which I totally wanted to get. But these show-accurate colors, PLUS a painted Skeets (why wasn't he painted to begin with Mattel?) made it an easy grab.

    I just couldn't bring myself to buy the Wonder Pig Batman. I have such a small disposable income these days, purchasing another Batman I don't like or want wouldn't fly. Plus, her front right hoofie had silver splash all over it, LOL.

    Mystery solved. Exciting no?

    Well I saw the 3 pack with Samurai and Apache Chief yesterday. Are they even comic characters?

    They are at least characters who are comic.

    Looks like the Waller pack is becoming a little easier to find, I saw a few on my journey to the city this weekend... and over on AFI and DC Hall Of Justice they say that the new three packs are popping up on the east coast already: Superman (with heat vision eyes, no less), Silver Banshee, and Metallo, Plastic Man, Cyborg, and Mr. Miracle, and Flash, Captain Cold, and Captain Boomerang...

    WOW!!!! Congratulations! I personally have not seen any of them but apparently someone from Toms River spotted those new 3-packs and the new 6-packs! I'm trying to get a friend of mine to check out Toms River for me. I hope they don't have too many Targets.

    Yeah, if you didn't pick up the older 6-packs now is the time to get them for a great price. Plus you can help make room for the arrival of the "attach from Thanagar" 6-pack! I really hope these start to show up before 6-packs are completely line. I have never loved and hated a toy line so much in my life!

    Thanagar and Eclipso sets are indeed out. They hit Targets a few days before Christmas. The clearance started on the 26th, with prices varying by store. (Most of the previous Hero Villain packs are now $20, but I've seen as low as $5.) A few people have found the Thanagar/Eclipso packs at clearance prices, but most of those sets were bought up at full price in the days just before Christmas. (I found some and paid full price at the time.) Most of us who follow this closely expect the Thanagar/Eclipso sets will vanish as if they never happened, just like the final 6-packs sets of 2008. (Even I didn't see those at retail.)

    P.S. Seen the latest JLU customs? http://www.pilliod.net

    I didn't know they were clearancing the 6-packs. Drat, I would have bought the old villains 6-pack when I saw it there on Monday. That would have finally helped me make up my mind whether or not to get it. Yesterday all they had was one League United pack, and I've already got that. I did see the Eclipso and Thanagar 6-packs on Monday, but the only Thanagar pack had a bent helmet on one of the Thanagarians because it had been put in the package wrong. Otherwise I would have gotten that.

    What's up with Eclipso Hawkgirl's paint job? The colors are annoyingly bold and clashy.

    My Target has the old 6 packs on clearance and the new 6 packs for $30. Thing is, aren't they all under the same DCPI, so how only some of them are clearanced is beyond me.

    I picked up the "Attack From Thanagar" six pack at Target on clearance for about $15. I would've picked up the other six packs. But I'm not interested in paying like $20 for the other ones when all that I want are the Tala and Supergirl figures.
