I saw Aquaman and Cyborg in a Walmart today. I didn't do a purchase due to having them all pre-ordered. Aquaman is a beast though.
Okay, just came back from a different Walmart than from yesterday and on the pegs were 1 Cyborg, Aquaman and 2 black costume Superman.
I decided to grab the three and leave the second Superman. The price was $15.88 so I wasn't going to leave them on the pegs this time and especially since this Walmart had Superman.

On vacation
Checked Walmart in Indiana, Alabama, and 4 in Florida…nothing
On vacation and still hunting. 8)

Are these Justice League figures as popular as the ebay prices are demanding or is this just indicative of have it now?
I am concerned these are not going to stay in stores long once they arrive.
Maybe its a toy hunting vacation?
May it be a good one full of rare and exotic exclusives to decorate his lodge. :lol:

One of my Walmart’s doesn’t have any DC figures at all, could be a store that’s primed for a JL drop.

I just opened Superman, Aquaman and Cyborg. If any were wondering WW84 is shorter than all three. Aquaman is the tallest of the three. I thought Cyborg was the tallest in the movie but I'm probably wrong. Superman's cape is sculpted to look like an actual cape when laying flat on someone's back. It's kind of folded over at the bottom. Whoever sculpted it though made it too thick and it weighs the figure down. It's difficult to get him to stand on his own. It's not impossible but it's frustrating to say the least. However Superman's upper body articulation is similar to the Infected Superman and can get into an excellent flying pose. Cyborg has the best overall articulation and Aquaman's is just there.

So wait, are these oversized compared to the other McF figures? Because WW84 is gargantuan.

Can you do a side by side shot of the group?

interesting... i'm with them if they're slightly tall.

on a different subject, check out this pics of the mcf batman next to the rc mattel batmobile and crawler toy, he actually fits inside them pretty well. once i get my batman i'll see if he'll fit the non rc version of the batmobile.

I took a screenshot from another video. I think Batman may be shorter than Supes and Flash. Its hard to tell because the reviewer uses a bad angle for his height comparisons. But I'm not overly excited about what I'm seeing early.

For reference....

Affleck 6'4"
Momoa 6'4"
Fisher 6'3"
Cavill 6'1"
Miller 5'11"
Gadot 5'10"

So relative scale is all over the map on these figures. Superman is shorter than Aquaman but not by enough. WW is shorter than them but still slightly too tall. Flash is shorter than all of them but he should be about the same height as WW. Cyborg should be just barely shorter than Aquaman but instead he's shorter than Superman. Batman and Aquaman should be the same height but he looks to be just barely taller than the Flash.

Batman is probably the biggest outlier. He's so far off it makes you start looking at things. If he were the same height as Aquaman it wouldn't be noticeable that the scale on all of these were off.

If I were to adjust these...I'd say...

Aquaman is fine
Flash is fine.
Cyborg is slightly too short but close enough
WW is still too tall
Superman is too tall
Batman is way too short.

I've shortened my WW and I can live with a slightly too tall Cavill Superman because he's Superman. It's just Batman that just doesn't work at all. Those legs look like he has saddlebags anyway. Maybe I'll just throw the head on an Arkham Knight Batman even though the suits aren't the same. At least the size would be correct. Arkham Knight Batman is the tallest Batman figure in the line if I remember correctly.

I wonder if the rushed timeline and trying to match the figures to the too tall WW is where things went off the rails.

I think the Dark Nights Metal Batman is the tallest in the line, although the McFarlane Batman is pretty big also.
I don’t have them in front of me to look at.

I think Batman being short only matters if the figures are put on a shelf in a boring museum pose. Once they are dynamically posed, I doubt it'll be very obvious. I think he works fine.

I dig it. It's fun to see some height variation among figures and they fit my mental image of the relative height between those characters.
