I found the Clayface wave this year between late winter and early summer.  4 of the 5 in comic shops.  The last one I found was Jessica in Wal-Mart.

Looking forward to Spoiler, less for Harley.  The Luthor wave shouldn’t be too far behind.  Good stuff there.  But I’m really looking forward to KC Superman and Kid Flash III in the Lobo wave.

Both Walmart stores here have put out the Aquaman movie figures and the two exclusive Luthor wave figures, Spoiler and Harley. I didn't buy any of them (hate Harley as a character and Spoiler is out of my collecting era focus) but I did notice some pretty sloppy paint aps on the Spoiler heads, so check them over!

Found Harley and Spoiler in Wally’s in a terrible neighborhood.  Glad I stopped.  Still no Aquaman.  Don’t much care anyway.

I like the new blue packaging, but a local Wally had nothing but Spoilers (very unimpressed -- and I would guess peg-warmer) and Harelquins  -- which looked decent if you're a fan of the current version of the character -- as I assume many are.

Over on the Fwoosh, guys are confirming that their cards have been charged for their Luthor wave preorders.  Also the Lynda Carter/Wonder Woman Signature figure has made it to Amazon.  Still no sign of the Byrne Bizarro. 

Hoping to get some of this by Christmas.

Our old pal Xavion posted on the Fwoosh that he found a lone Ray at a Wal-Mart this morning.  Of the three toy MBs I frequent, that’s the first report I’ve seen that the Luther wave has hit retail.  I think Xav lives in Florida or Georgia.  Can’t remember which.

So I’ve been spot checking Wal Marts today and discovered that many have stopped carrying Legends and Multiverse entirely.  WT blue F?

Are you sure they stopped?  Mine have moved them to shelves as opposed to pegs, but kept the 3 year old figs out.

Shelves here too.  But just with those hard plastic larger figures.

Looks like 4 figure waves are the new normal:

I wonder if that means Baz and Impulse will become exclusives.

Ray and Vixen for the win. Glad I don't want either of those C&Cs.

Anyone got a Clayface C&C they wanna sell?

I just realized they screwed up Kyle's chest symbol.  I thought maybe it was a more modern version, but a quick Google search says no.  Sad

And I was wrong.  It is his modern symbol.  It's kind of lame.  Curiously the leaked pics that had Impulse and Catwoman had the original symbol.

Not surprising.  I think we’re almost all in for Rebirth going forward.  The main exceptions will likely be Multiverse/Elseworlds type characters.  Dunno how that impacts the Balent Catwoman.

I would love to think there will be a figure or two down the line that I want, but I've pretty much lost all hope with DC figures.  Hell....I don't even expect any REBIRTH characters I want to show up.  There are a handful of designs that I like, but actually like.  But again....this is WB we are talking about. 

Granted, I usually have off-the-wall tastes, so I guess I'm partially to blame.
