    Just picked up the Green Lantern 5-pack at a local Walmart, totally wasn't expecting to see it either.

    Sadly, it was the last one i could see, but hopefully that means there will be more locally soon.

    Sadly, DCUC ankles don't rotate; they only pivot. Still, that sounds great for a DCD. I got my BL Bats yesterday, too (along with the rest of the wave), but haven't opened yet.

    Hoping to go to WM later today and find the GL pack!

    You found it? Awesome. How are they? I'm curious to see/know the quality of Guy, Tomar, and Hal(I was thinking about head swapping with a Hal I picked up a few months better if the body's joints aren't as loose).

    Throw the GL logo on the kid's shirt and you have epic win, right now it is only win.

    I'll throw the request out there again for anyone who might be able to secure this set for me.

    I did find it!

    The quality is excellent, at least on my set. Hal had a stuck thigh swivel and Tomar a stuck ankle, but both were just due to a bit of excess paint, and were solved easily by sliding a small knife around the joint spaces. No loose joints at all.

    The figures all look great in-hand. The lanterns are gorgeous -- the color they should've been all along. Guy is a tad taller than the average DCUC due to his thicker boot soles and melon head. His suit sculpt is very well done, and I like his attitude face. Tomar's mask is sculpted, not just painted. My only gripe is that they didn't reuse Romat Ru's hands for him. I know he's been drawn with four or five, but I like four better. (Though if they had, the ring would've been on the wrong hand. *shrugs*)

    Ah, sorry. I missed that before. My WM did have one extra. I'll grab it if it's still there next time I go back.

    How about this?

    How much does that 5-pack go for, by the way? I'm tempted to get a set and ship it over here.

    Thanks! :D

    Well, now that everyone is starting to find this one... hopefully I'll see it at one of my two Wal-Marts soon. Been looking forward to the GL Five Pack the most of any of the current upcoming DCUC releases.

    Speaking of upcoming DCUC releases... have we had any word on Waves 14 & 15? Wave 15 is supposed to show up at K-Mart in September and other retailers in October... so it makes me wonder why we haven't seen the Wal-Mart Exclusive Wave 14 yet... it's just strange... especially when there haven't even been any eBay sightings of Wave 14 either.

    I just came across this on the Taiwan Yahoo! Auction site and was wondering, is this a prototype or knock-off?

    Bizzaro

    I was thinking prototype, as he also has a funky-coloured Guy Gardner and Alan Scott.

    that bizaro looks weird, but for some reason it looks legit to me too. i wonder if that was a prototype never used, or something planned for the future? id say its worth asking on the fwoosh, they'res a lot of helpful people there too if u dont find any info here!
