    Hey all,

    I picked up the Riddler and Killer Croc yesterday to start my collection of this line. Both look awesome but I am a bit afraid to open my Killer Croc after reading all of the horror stories on Amazon about his arm falling off. I suppose eventually I will give in and open it, he looks way too cool to stay in the box, and I'm usually a MOC collector.

    Would LOVE to find a Bane from Arkham Asylum but really cant justify spending $200. Wish I had jumped on it sooner......

    I ordered the Arkham City Series 1 figures (Infected Bats, Robin, Harley) on eBay a little over a week ago and the seller cancelled my order today. I'm pretty angry about it, as I was getting the set for a decent price. Time to start exploring other options...

    Hey man, Winchester and Hagerstown are up north from me. About 6-8 hours away sadly. I live in Southwest Va, and I'm extremely close to the VA/KY border. A little nothing of a town called Haysi. There's literally nothing here. We have one comic shop about 30 minutes away, but the guy that runs the place said he wouldn't be getting any of the older stuff in, only the new waves. :csad:

    My Top 5 Are:

    - Bane
    - Sickened Joker
    - Armored Batman
    - Scarecrow
    - Joker w/Scarface

    I'm sure once Titan Joker is released he will replace someone on this list.


    also finally just got the 2010 Comic Con Battle Damaged Batman for what I thought was a fair price. I didn't want to hold out any longer for it given its such limited run, they pretty much just keep going up in value year over year. my Arkham collection is now fully complete sans the new wave of figures that are coming soon.

    I opened up Riddler. Amazing figure out of the package. Joker and Scarface is my other fav. Upcoming Penguin looks awesome. Got the whole wave on order from my comic shop.

    yeah the Riddler figure is really nice, as well as Hush. and yes, the Penguin looks amazing, probably my favorite out of the new wave, based only on the pics i've seen of course. can't wait to see it in person.

    I haven't opened up Hush yet. I will. I just need to clean and put up shelving. Prob gonna go for the Ikea case with door as my cats like to watch thing fall off shelves. Since I have the next wave on preorder I haven't bought any Batman variants as the next wave one will serve as the Batman from the line for me. I like infected one, but I don't buy many variants as I buy a lot as is.

    Dang too bad you're not further north, I used to hit the jackpot in the Hagerstown-Martinsburg area last year at Walmart, Target and other stores when looking for figures. If you want I can check out the comic store in town up here for some of the AA line and then check a few in southern NH when I go up there this weekend. It would just be cost + shipping like we do in the MM forum. I still see some of the original ones up here in Massachusetts...of course now that I'm looking to get them they won't be there :cwink:

    Let me know.

    Sure, I'll look for them. Not sure I'll find the battle damaged one, isn't that the comic con exclusive? I'll let you know if I find them.

    yeah you very likely won't find the battled damaged batman in stores, even comic shop owners who bought some at Comic Con back in 2010 have mostly already sold them off by now..you pretty much have to buy it off other collectors now like I had to.

    The only way i see a comic shop selling them NOW is if someone came and sold them theirs (at below market dealer price), then the comic shop re-sold it at it's current market go-rate ($60-$80).

    Wow $17.99. That's an incredible find. At this point, I've pretty much given up on finding Bane. I will resort to ebay/amazon for figures that are hard to find and 10-25$ more than retail (I justify it by figuring I will spend at least that much on time/gas), but I just don't think I can spend $150 plus on a figure that was released a few years ago for 15$ or so. Plus my girlfriend might kill me. :eek:

    Yeah it was pretty amazing ... and I understand biting the bullet and paying more for a figure I have had to do it a time or two. I understand the girlfriend thing I have been married for 10 years so I understand you have to pick your battles.

    Haha convincing a girlfriend to support the habit is difficult, especially when the collecting gets expensive.

    Yea, she has been cool about it all along but everytime I "add to the collection" I can see the gears turning in her head like "not another one..." Hopefully someday I will find a Bane at a reasonable price, or be able to swing a trade.

    I was able to check a couple stores over the weekend and I had no luck finding the armored Batman for you, sorry. The only Batman I saw was the detective mode one. I actually didn't see any AA figures at all. I used to see Poison Ivy and Zsasz all the time (fairly recently) but now that I'm looking for them for people I can't find any of them.... I have one more store to hit up so all is not lost.

    Got my Mad Hatter in the mail today. Gotta say, even though the figure looks great I'm not that impressed. The articulation is just awful, but I do understand that this isn't the only figure in this line with that problem. He will look good on my shelf, just hard to pose.

    I've had TWO that had the left arm just fall off w/in a day or two and just by moving it up and down a couple times; on my third but scared to touch; same w/ Freeze's left leg; broke right off while GETTING IT OUT OF THE PACKAGE!!!! Definately not coincidence; the material connecting the limbs of both figures looks identical and are crap!
