    These guys only come four figures to a case, so selection is going to be pretty sparse right out of the gate. The Dark Knight assortment is 2x Batman, 1x Joker, and 1x Thug and the chase Bruce Wayne is 1 of every 10 cases if I remember right. I'm not sure how the Scarecrow wave works.

    I only see about two or three cases worth of Movie Masters in stores at any given time. My guess is that most retailers want to bank on the smaller, cheaper, more action-oriented figures than the higher-priced collector stuff.

    Mattel recalled them all for some reason, but won't say why. That's why they're so rare.


    I'm glad I got my set of Bats, Joker, and the Thug already.

    July 9th is when these guys come back officially, with Scarecrow, the Begins Batman, and Joker will be back, with a cleaner paint job on the lips, but added black around the top of his eyes.

    The repainted Joker.

    They have been sighted, so you should be able to get one by the movie.

    These weren't recalled. Mattel was doing some spot checks on some of the toys for quality issues because of some internal reports on lines like Speed Racer, Dark Knight, and Kung Fu Panda and they had some stores pull the product temporarily while they ran their tests. This stuff is back on the shelves now.

    I thought they were recalled because Mattel wanted to change the face on the Joker figure so that it looked less like Heath Ledger?

    At least thats what I thought. I even read it in my local newspaper!

    I hadn't heard that, but it makes sense. All I've read is a statement Mattel saying that they were temporarily pulling some toys off the shelf because of "internal quality issues," but there was no safety recall in place. It sounded like they didn't like something about the toys and wanted to make a change. A re-sculpt on Joker sounds like it would fit that bill.
