We do usually get exclusives like this in the UK and have an easier time getting hold of them as well.
Oh man right!
I do kinda feel bad for folks in the States having to race around cities and States to find exclusives when we get them all pretty much everywhere and in plentiful quantities.

Then again we're SO far behind so maybe I don't feel so bad ha

I had to take my daughter to an appointment and after stopped by Target.
There was one Owlman left on the shelf so I grabbed it and canceled my order on their website.

For those of you who've bought these: are the little Starro face-parasites different for each character or the same accessory for each?

Also, what do you call the little Starro face-parasites? Is there an official name for them?

    The 'Mini' Starro's are unique sculpts for each figure they release with. Confirmed on a couple of reviews-life before figures on youtube
      Official name, not sure "mini" is my lean to.

      I have not opened my 3 as yet, for those that have-
      How is Starro looking, how poseable and display options? Does he look like he will stand at all? Are the tentacles able to support the figure in an upright position?

      I think they're called "spores".

      Gotta say, for not really wanting the Crime Syndicate figures themselves other than Owlman, I'm really glad I've picked up the releases so far. Starro is a beast already, and I can only imagine once he gets his legs how gnarly looking he'll be. The detail on him so far is just insane, and a little creepy, as it should be. His mouth is giving me Kraken vibes from POTC.

      As for the questions above, I'm interested to see how he'll be able to stand on his own as well. As it is now, I don't really see a way for him to, other than leaning against something. It looks like his arms/legs/points have some bend to them- I can't tell if it's a legit joint or just a bendy wire or something to that effect- I can bend it a bit, and there's a little pop/click like on a joint, and it'll keep the pose, but only barely. There's really not much range to him- at best maybe something like the Suicide Squad movie where the ends of each point bend a little. Unless the final release (or a 5th CS member is released) comes with a stand, I don't really see it standing on its own, unless the legs have even more bendable range than the arms. I hope McF has thought that far ahead- it's a damn cool BAF so far, and while not standing won't make it any less cool, it'll definitely be one of those "if only" situations.

      Starro’s a great addition, but I’m all about the Crime Syndicate. Sorta surprised we haven’t seen the fourth figure yet to complete Starro.

      Do we have confirmation on whether the last figure is Power Ring or Johnny Quick?

      Hoping for Johnny Quick, myself. Just a little more visually interesting. But if McF wants to throw us a curveball and make the final figure Deathstorm to get some more mileage out of the Blackest Night Firestorm, I'd be all for that too. Whoever they go with, I hope we get the rest of the CS down the line somehow.

      I’m leaning toward Power Ring for the last figure. I’d like Johnny Quick with a pack in Atomica.
