"Look What I Just Got" Thread (Part 1)

I can see Lex cleaning what was left of Atomica from his foot armor afterward.

“Lousy stinkin’ size-adjuster! I just can’t get this bit of her out of my sole. Otis, bring me another stick!”

I was wondering who’d catch the reference first :grin:

Definitely on my list of favorite Lex Luthor moments.

Do I get a prize? A full set of custom-made Divine Right figures, maybe? :wink:

Mine too. I vividly remember reading Forever Evil #7 the day it came out, and when I saw that scene, I thought “Oh, man!” and smiled ear to ear afterward.

Some recent acquisitions.

Batman to complete the Funko Pop Gingerbread Trinity. Also added Stuffed Supes & Krypto from the movie in the back.

Got these from the Macy’s Toys R Us section. On sale for $10 a pair, so not a bad deal. Surprisingly solid in hand.

New DC Comics Day (“Tuesday” as The Norms boringly call it) finds:

Walmart

After decades of wanting one, I finally have an 8" Mego Superman and it only cost me $19.99.

Sure, its a brand-new release that, along with Batman and Robin, celebrates the 50th anniversary of Mego’s World’s Greatest Super-Heroes line, but still, an 8" Mego Superman is an 8" Mego Superman, so I am quite happy with the above.

It looks like the case packout is 6, with Superman, Batman and Robin all at 2 per. I didn’t buy Batman or Robin, but I likely will at a later point (I almost pulled the trigger on Batman, but I was a good boy and held-off). The second series with Aquaman, Green Arrow and Shazam looks spiffy.

If Mego pumps out these boxed 8-inchers at a good clip, I just might become a Mego addict. Oh, you betcha, mmhmm.

“Moving on.”

Walmart #2

Randomly came across the above shirt. I wasn’t jonesing for a BA tee, but at the price they had it for (in the neighborhood of eight bucks), I said “Shazam!” and took it home.

I would take a pic of the real shirt, but I’m wearing it right now, and I don’t do selfies.

Yon Comic Shoppe

Brand-new:

Dollar bin finds:

tips his Indiana Jones-style fedora, says “Ma’am.” and smiles politely in appreciation

Very cool, especially the LOSP stuff.

Amazon’s had Super-Pets stuff on sale for a while, so I’m glad TRU (Macy’s Schmacy’s, TRU lives…sort-of) does too.

You’ve inspired me to take a Black Friday run through TRU now (well, come Friday :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:), @moro. I thank you, good sir. :slight_smile:

Love the Supes. Been on the fence with that one, because I have the previous 8” version. Your pic has convinced me to reconsider.

Thank you. I like the movie quite a bit. Found a ton of LOSP stuff discounted on the shelves in TRU.

You’re welcome. DC was slim pickings there, apart from LOSP and a couple Funkos. You may have better luck in your local store though.

Nothing ugly here. Looking great!

This one?

Well, we’re Even-Stevens then, since you’ve inspired me to take a waltz through TRU on Friday.
:slight_smile: :fist_right:t2: :fist_left:t2:

Its a pretty swell piece. I’m not opening it (or any of the others I may buy), because for me, the packaging is part of the experience, especially since these anniversary figures are reproductions of those sold in the '70s and its a neat trip back in time (I wasn’t alive in the '70s, but you get what I mean :wink:).

Me too! On a scale of “fun”, LOSP is my second-favorite theatrically-released DC flick of the year, as it was a ton of fun and then some.

You’re making me want to go to TRU now and I mustn’t. I mustn’t! :grin:

Of the two Macy’s that I’ve gone to explicitly for TRU look-abouts, one had Jack and :poop: (“And Jack left town.”), while the other had assorted Spin Master schtuff (including Black Adam, but the 4-inch Cyclone and Dr. Fate were gone, natch) and a few Pops from The Batman.

Of course, the store that had diddly was close, while the good one was a drive away.

I wonder if McFarlane will stick his toes back into the domestic TRU waters. I hope he does.

Nice! I like the snow atop the bat emblem, as it reminds me of the opening of Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero.

That’s the one. Have that Trinity. Daughter makes fun of ‘em all the time :smiley:.

I also have the 14” versions of Superman & Batman that came out shortly after.

I guess a 14” Wonder Woman to match the World’s Finest would be my biggest (pun not intended) ask from Mego.

Well, you just need the 8-incher from Walmart then, as its a perfect (as far as my four eyes have seen) repro of the '70s original, and thus, means you should spend your scratch on it. :grin:

These came out a few years ago:

Target exclusive.

General release.

I passed on the Target release (nabbed Superman and Zod, though :superman_hv_4:), while I used to have the New 52 edition (complete with Rebirth artwork on the back of the box :facepalm_catwoman:), but I sold it and my other non-Superman 14" Megos a few years ago.

The New 52 Diana is pretty slick, so if you want a 14-inch Mego Diana, I’d go with that one.

Of course, Mego certainly should do WW in the 8-inch line. Fingers crossed she’ll be in wave 3 (worked for McFarlane’s Super Powers line, after all). :crossed_fingers:t2:

:smile: Every time that guy (I’m thinking he’s a “Merv”-type, so I’ll call him Merv) pushes the button, I hear the “bing!” sound from The Price is Right and countless other game shows.

Drew Carey’s my dude, but I’ll always have a special spot in my heart for Bob “Happy Gilmore” Barker, since he was a childhood fav of mine.
