    I haven't received mine either, and I'm starting to get a little worried, but it always takes forever to get to Canada and I figure it's been held up in customs now.

    Few Canadians have received our sets yet. I sure hope they're all just stuck at the border: otherwise could be a customer service nightmare.

    What they do is put him back on the shelf lol.

    I too saw WGSH Superman and Batman at a local WM. No other wave 12 though.

    Later tonight I'll post the perfect DCUC wave that thought up while trying to sleep last night.

    Now now, we don't know a scalper did it, much less a woman.

    Maybe it was just some jerk who didn't want to pay full price for the CnC, piece, and thanks to his douchery someone else loses out.

    I saw something odd the other day. I saw 3 figures from wave 11 at walmart... John Stuart, Katma Tui, and Steppenwolf. Th eodd thing though, was that all 3 had their extra parts missing. John and Katma had no C&C parts, and Steppenwold didnt even have his display stand.

    I have seen several items in the past where i could tell somebody had opened, removed, and returned.. but these 3 were FLAWLESS. I am starting to think that there may have been several cases sent without parts. Why would somebody take the stand.. and reseal the figure THAT flawless? p

    what do you guys think? possible?

    I bought a Mr. Miracle back at wave 6 that didn't have the CnC piece. Pretty sure it was sealed due to wave 6 just coming out, and I picked up one of each of every figure and they were all fine

    God help me, I actually want a "Shark" figure! I like to collect the mostly obscure DC characters that come out, I started reading comics in the 80's with "Who's Who" and so I know almost every character pre-crisis that is!

    Yes. Only figure 7 (Hawkgirl) doesn't come with parts for Giganta.

    Wave 7 on they used 6 pieces for the BAF. The upper torso is always with figure 1, the crotch and head with figure 6. The only exception being Chemo, who's head wasn't a seperate piece.

    Did you get any response other than "it's in the post" from matty when you were emailing them? I sent one asking if mine had been dispatched but they didn't reply.

    Not just Canada, noticed over on the DCD board a few Australians havn't received anything either.
