Though I have managed to stick to my vow of no toy purchases for the duration of the 28 Day Challenge, I've had so much coming in that I bought in January that it wasn't all that bad. then a couple days ago, some Mattel All-Star DCUCs I pre-ordered from Amazon way back in November started showing up!
*All-Star Deathstroke- he was originally released all the way back in 2008 with Wave 3, and I was really stoked to see him re-released- such an awesome figure!
*All-Star Joker- Also released with Wave 10, like the all-black Batman. This Silver-Age version of the Joker couldn't be more of a classic, and generously accessorized!
*Wave 16 Mercury- my thrird DCUC Metal Men member- I love the red finish, which has a slight irredesenct sparkle to it. He's a standout!
I also recieved a Wave 16 Riddler that was missing his staff- I could only return, not exchange him for another because Amazon.Com didn't have any more. I waited nearly four months to get defective merchandise. So now I'd like to share an important piece of advice: preordering from Amazon may or may not be so great. They dangled a carrot in front of my nose ($14.99 each, free shipping, no tax), I took the bait, then they failed to deliver. And I'm still waiting on the Wave 16 Robin I ordered along with these. Some friends have recently shared similar experiences with me, so I know this isn't some isolated incident. I get some amazing deals on Amazon, and I won't likely stop buying from the other sellers there, but I'd rather give Mike's Comics n' Stuff my business, who will be handling my forthcoming DCD Brightest Day orders- I get more personal service & a fair price. DCUCs can be hard to find with any consistency in this town, and forget about getting any DC Direct figures. I met Mike on the Action Figure Blues Forum, and he takes care of us AFB members!
