    No really. I was at a KB today while shopping for easter and came across the JSA figures fro mlast year. They had all 5 and were 5.98 each. I already had Hawkgirl but got Dr Mid Night this time. I might go back and get Mr Terrific and Hourman later but really don't care for them that much.

    But has anyone else found this strange occurance? I have never seen DC Direct at a chain. Maybe they are branching out or KB bought some stock at auction. Who knows.

    My local liquidation store had a big rack of Lanterns and Legion for five bucks. I figure they must have come from SOME store originally, I just don't know which.

    Big Lots buys leftover Hasbro stuff I know, and they own KB, so maybe its something like that? That's my best guess.

    You're right it is indeed strange. Even in my country, I have never seen DC Direct stuff at the retail level. Well, only for once and it was at a toy fair and the series involved was the Mongul and Power Girl wave. I can understand if DC Direct wants to have more customers but it could hurt them as the competition is stiffer.

    Probably Suncoast. Most of them closed in the past year or so.
