It is weird that it's up for pre-order. I missed out getting the Riddler & the Atom in this wave, so I wouldn't mind picking them up. But I don't need the entire set. This wave has one of my favorite DCUC figures the Eradicator. I just wish they didn't make his cape so stiff, and his visor really needed to be translucent.

I have no interest in these but I just love it when the rising cost of NEW petroleum affects the price old stock that was inventoried incorrectly.

Hey guys. If you include Metallo as a figure it only works out to $23.33 per figure and everyone short of Amazo gets around $25+ on eBay these days. Metallo himself goes for around $65+ as well. BBTS prices have nearly always been a few dollars more than retail to make it worth their time so I still think this is reasonable. I'll probably pick this set up myself and then sell Eradicator. I bought him loose a while back for over $25. Don't remember exact cost, but it wasn't cheap. If you're not a Superman fan, you can buy this set and sell Metallo for $70 and Eradicator for $25-30 and get the rest of the figures for around $9.50.

Hey Avalon, I agree. This is a great opportunity for anyone who doesn’t have any of these figures but always wanted to get them at less than eBay prices. Especially when you consider Metallo’s value. :smgrin: These aren’t 2005 cheap by any stretch but I think they are a more than fair reflection of today’s asking prices for these particular figures. :smeradicate:

I had a pleasant surprise yesterday at a Roses Discount Store. I stopped there to see if they still had some 6 inch YJ Batman figures which they did. After picking up the Batman I spotted an almost complete set of DCUC Wave 5 figures the only one missing was the Riddler. I ended up passing on the Batman, but I did buy all the wave 5 figures at $7.50 each to boot :)

Damn, nice score. I hate all of you with Roses in your area. Always hear about cool stuff being found there. Not a single one within a three hour drive of me. :(
