Really regret missing out on Captain Nemo now. The crew look like a lot of fun.

Oof. I was hoping for a bit more time before these dropped.
The crew looks great, I'm just trying to decide if I'll ever actually use all 4 at once, or if I can get away with just one set.

Where did you see that Nautilus code?

In the Mezco Facebook group.

It'll be interesting to see how this stays on a flat surface.

Yeah, shoot! I had two sets of the crew and wave rider in my cart and went to add Nemo and saw he was sold out. What a shame! Any chance they might restock him?

Keep an eye on comic shops and online retailers. Diamond distribution offered him and 78 Superman wholesale yesterday with a ship date in a few weeks.

The fine print in the final pic says there's a port on the bottom for a special posing post that's included. Don't see it in any of the pics, though.

This set is a tough one. Grabbed the skulls and a crew member set but can't decide if this is worth $100 to me. I had the original (and still might, can't recall what happened to that ...) and this is really cool but it's $100+ on top of the crew members, Orlok last week and the Mythic drop tomorrow ...

I don't care a whit for the Mezco figures - but damn I'm tempted to drop the money for that manta Waverider. Tons of cool uses for it and it's just great looking. It's expensive for a small vehicle accessory, and yet...

ultimately the $23.00 shipping cost taking the total to over $120 after tax probably pushes me off the fence. I like it, but I don't 'full wave of Marvel Legends' like it.

My Captain's should be here this week. Grabbed 2x crew members and the vehicle. Should make for a very nice display.

I'm curious though, it looks like one of the two bodies included with the crew member pack has a peg leg. I hope that can be swapped out. Would look kind of funny for 2 of 4 to have peg legs.

I was also wondering about the peg leg. Two would look weird so hopefully they do the swappable limb as suggested.

Apparently the NAUTILUS code was included/hidden in Nemo’s journal. I and others haven’t even received their Nemo figures yet, so kind of poor timing to have these release without cog members having notice of the code. I emailed Mezco support but the initial response wasn’t super promising. Here’s hoping they work it out, 10% would help a lot with these.

it would be nice if the peg leg came with some kind of knee extension that would fit catwoman.

the nautilus code is just the latest in their list of blunders. mine is scheduled to deliver sunday. hopefully it works on future releases but probably won't.

i ordered 4 sets because i'm sure i have enough spare heads to create a larger pack of goons. it looks like the peg is where the boot would plug in.

$81 on shipping and taxes to get the Waverider to Australia.

Is this the exact same waverider as released years ago? I mean size-wise. I do have an original. If it's the exact same, then I can probably pass.

Slim to none. Mezco doesn't really do restocks. Sometimes items show up months or years laterz but it's not their business model.

A variant could happen, though.

I'm not big on all the details of DC, but is Selina an amputee in some recent storyline?
