maybe it's because my expectations were extremely low, but other than the limited elbow/knee range, i thought robin king was surprisingly decent.

I've got Damien, so I figure Robin King will be about the same. Going hunting tomorrow to see if I can't grab Supes some friends.

It’s not the figure I don’t like, more so the character.

I liked this series since I dig Capullo. Batman and Wonder Woman are especially awesome. Supes is fun and shouldn't get the hate, definitely worth that low price.

Who do you need? We have a bunch up here. I need the Happy Hogan set if you can grab it on clearance but shipping will probably throw the trade off.

All but Supes. And really only Batman and Wonder Woman, since I have no interest in Robin King or Dark Father. Just thought it would be neat to have a #$%^&! Metal DC Trinity cover band for a cheap price.
My son actually took a liking to Superman, but isn't thrilled with his rock arm. He also says the chains make him look mean.

Was at an out of town Target today and was psyched to see Wonder Woman. That feeling didn't last long though when she scanned at $25! WTF?

The only figures the Targets near me had from this wave for the last few weeks were Wonder Woman and Superman. The store that had 3 WW sold out as soon as they went on clearance and I missed her. I was able to get Superman, though.

Have to say: I absolutely love this figure, even more than I expected to. I was a metal head in high school, and this is just an awesome version of Supes to me. Typical high quality McF DC figure, too. Super sturdy and no problem at all standing or holding poses.

I ended up ordering WW a few days ago on Amazon for $19.99. I'd previously gotten Robin King and Batman at a recent Dorkside sale for cheap, so I ultimately got the entire wave for $60 and some change. Not bad at all. As soon as WW comes in, the Darkfather will LIVE.....

Entire wave up on Amazon right now for around $60. Just bought it. Hell of a deal for five figures.

I sold my dark father on ebay for about $40 so if you can get the wave for 60 and list the baf it'll only cost you 20 bucks or so.

I liked the story so I’ll probably end up keeping him. Thank you for the heads up though. Actually just got them in right now as I was replying. I’m shocked, but Amazon just dropped the figures off. Ordered them 3 hours ago and have them now. Never had that happen before. Must be a new distribution center near me because everything always took two days minimum. Gonna open them up later today but looking at them now they look great. My Metal shelf is now complete outside of wanting a few more Crows.
